The options for this and the costs are displayed on the Registration and Payment form. At least one day of brainstorming, symposium and workshop must be included in your selection. It is not possible to register for either an excursion or the Gala Dinner on their own or only both together.


The cost of accommodation during the Convention is NOT included in the registration fees and must be reserved independently by participants either from the Convention Venue Marriott Hotel or elsewhere. A list of alternative locations and types of accommodation in the Aberdeen area is provided on the Venue page of this website.
