The registration desk can be found in the Stephen Hawking Building. It will be signposted onsite on your arrival. You will receive your badge and documentation at KNect365's registration desk. Your badge should be worn at all times.
Our team will be staffing the desk throughout the week during conference hours so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
