Workshop FAQs

 

Who can register for workshops?
All delegates attending the conference in person can register for workshops. Workshops will not be available as part of the virtual conference.

When can I register for workshops?
Workshop registrations are open to existing delegates on Friday 26th March. Delegates who have already registered will have priority access until Wednesday 31st March to register for workshops before they are made available to all new registrants.  

How can I register for workshops?
Each registered delegate will receive an email containing a personalised link to a form which will allow you to register for the workshops you wish to attend.

Following the priority access period for those who have already registered the workshop selection will be added to the registration form and workshop selection will be done at the point of registration.

Am I guaranteed my preferred workshop(s)?
We have made every effort to ensure that there is a sufficient number of workshops and capacity to accommodate everybody’s preference. However, room capacities due to social distancing requirements may mean that some delegates are unable to register for their preferred workshops.

Lecture sessions are programmed to run concurrently with workshops, for which no registration is required, so please check the program for alternative sessions to attend.

How many workshops can I register for?
The number of workshops you are able to pre-register for is dependent on your registration type: 

Full Registration: Maximum of 4 workshops
One-Day Registration: Maximum of 2 workshops
Two-Day Registration: Maximum of 3 workshops

Do these limits apply to all workshops in the program?
No, workshops provided by any of our Gold Partners (outside of the main Conference program) may be publicised and made available for pre-registration. If and when this occurs, delegates will be notified, and again, attendance at these sessions will not be included in the above registration limits.

Will all the workshops be available straight away?
No, a number of workshops are still in  development and will be added closer to the Conference. Delegates will be notified when new workshops are made available. You can change your workshop selections at any point via the same link (see below).

Can I change my workshop selections after I have selected them?
Yes, you can amend your workshop selections throughout the lead up to the Conference by utilising the same link you used to initially register. Proceed through the form making the necessary changes before re-submitting. At the venue, you may also visit the Registration and Information Desk to make any changes to your workshop selection.

How will you know that I am pre-registered?
Once you have registered for your workshops these will be saved against your record. Your Conference name badge will act as your ‘ticket’ and will be scanned upon entry.

Can I be added to a waitlist for a workshop that is full?
There are no waitlists for fully subscribed workshops. Delegates who wish to try to attend a full workshop may go there on the day and, if there is available space once the workshop has commenced, will be allowed access.

Can I just turn up to a workshop even if I haven't registered?
Yes, you may turn up to any workshop during the Conference regardless of whether you have pre-registered, however, priority will be given to delegates who are pre-registered until the session has begun. At that point, if there is space available, unregistered delegates will be allowed access.

What if I am late for a workshop?
Due to the high demand for a number of workshops we are unable to hold seats for pre-registered delegates once the workshop has commenced. We recommend arriving at the workshop venue at least 5 minutes prior to the start time to avoid your spot being reallocated. In instances when workshops are running back-to-back, additional time will be factored in to allow for delegates transitioning from other rooms.

What should I do if I can no longer attend a workshop?
Due to demand, if you know you are unable to attend a workshop we would appreciate it if you could advise us at 
sonographers@theconferencecompany.com so that we can make your space available to other delegates.
