We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
  •  11 May 2022
     9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Important Information:

Registration from 9am; course runs 9.30am to 5pm. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Booking closes at 12pm on Tuesday 3rd May (or earlier, if all places are taken), as the venue requires the final numbers in advance. Reservations are confirmed when full payment is received. We anticipate high demand, so prompt booking and payment are advised to avoid disappointment.

If the course is no longer able to take place in person, owing to government restrictions (e.g. another lockdown) or our assessment of risk, it will be moved online. If this is not possible, delegates will either be refunded or transferred to an alternative course of their choice, plus or minus any difference in the fee.

If venue capacity decreases due to government restrictions (e.g. social distancing becomes mandatory), those who booked and paid first will be prioritised. Everyone else will either be refunded or transferred to an alternative course of their choice, plus or minus any difference in the fee.

Dependent on government advice and best practice at the time of the course, delegates may be asked to provide evidence of a negative LFT to ensure the safety of all attendees.

We kindly ask delegates to stay up to date on government guidelines at the time of their course: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

The venue may also have their own rules regardless of current guidelines or law. You can view the venue’s current policy here: https://www.hilton.com/en/p/what-to-expect/

You will not be refunded if you are asked to leave a premises for not abiding by Covid guidelines.
