The organisers of the event recommend that fee seminar sessions are free to attend, simply arrive at the seminar theatre five minutes before the session is due to start to secure your seat.

Is free second class?
Just because these sessions are free - do not underestimate them - some of the speakers here are world class - for example Michael Maynard. I have heard Michael speak many times and he is one of the most engaging and entertaining and yet natural presenters - I may well skip out of the main programme for his session.
