Registration FAQs


There will be a £100 (+VAT) fee to access the registration site. At this point you can select which events you would like to attend, all of which are offered on a first come first served basis, and then proceed to checkout. Many of these will be complimentary but there will be an additional charge for some of the LIDW-associated events and dinners during the week. For further details on pricing please visit each individual event profile.

The initial fee of £100 (+VAT) is non-refundable, unless due to over-subscription you do not receive a confirmed place at one (minimum) of the LIDW sessions you select. If you are no longer able to attend the week in general, you can transfer the initial registration to someone else within the same organisation. Fees for the flagship conference and other charged LIDW-associated events will have their own policy regarding cancellation, which can be viewed on their event profile’s. webpage.

The £100 (+VAT) is a registration fee that once paid allows you to be able to indicate which of the LIDW sessions you’d like to attend. Additional fees are payable to attend the flagship conference and some other LIDW-associated events—these are marked with a £ sign in the programme section.

There is no explicit deadline for the events however capacity is limited and tickets will be offered on a first come first served basis. We are expecting a high demand so would recommend registering as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
