Where do I register?

All registrations must be completed online before arriving at the venue. To start your registration please go to our website.


Can I register onsite?

No. We no longer have registration facilities onsite and all attendees must be registered before they arrive.

If, for some reason, your registration is not complete or you are registering for the first time, you will need to use your mobile device (and mobile data) to complete your registration. You should allow extra time for this as you will need to have your ID document validated which can take time at busy periods.


Is there a registration deadline?

The registration system remains open throughout the event, however all attendees need to have their ID document validated before arriving at the venue and processing times vary. To avoid any issues, please make sure that you have completed your registration and had your ID document validated before you arrive. Your registration account will clearly display whether you have completed all mandatory information and are ready to enter the venue.
