ARE YOU READY? Check you can get access?
Slack – the Conference platform
The Conference is being delivered via Slack, with Zoom providing the broadcast and video interaction functions. You gain access to the Zoom feeds by logging in to Slack.
If you registered and acted on the invitation to join the Slack conference workspace, just click here for entry.
How do I access Slack?
If you registered before the 6th November you will have been sent an invitation to join the Slack workspace on the 9th November.
If you have registered since then, you should have received an invitation within two working days.
Follow the link in the invitation and you will have access. Be sure to complete your profile to encourage networking. There is a Slack Tips channel to help you get started, and a Help Desk if you have any problems.

1) Did you register for the conference?
Go to 2)
Registrations closed 17th November. Please complete the late registration form. We will endeavour to get you into the Slack workspace for the conference asap (from where you can access links to the live online conference sessions).
We anticipate being very busy on the days of the conference and will prioritise access issues from people who registered prior to the 17th November.
Thank you for your understanding.
