Purchasing your Conference ticket and extras
Before purchasing your ticket, please ensure that you read the Attendee Policy as, by having bought a ticket, you will be deemed to have agreed to abide by the terms of the policy and to understand that if you do not do so, your badge may be revoked and you will be asked to leave the conference.
We have provided a web store for you to purchase your ticket and any of the extras which you choose. You can use a PayPal account or a debit/credit card.
Please ensure that if you revisit the store to buy extras, you use the same email address with which you purchased your ticket.
You will be asked for your legal name, that which is shown on the government-issued photo ID which you will present at registration with the e-ticket.
However, we recognize that many of you will prefer to have another name printed on your badge for privacy reasons, or because it is the name which you have become known by in the MHRM. Therefore, you will be able to enter your “badge name” as well as your legal name but only your badge name will shown on the badge. If you do not enter a specific badge name, your legal name will be printed on the badge.
Once you have purchased your ticket, you will receive an e-ticket by email. If you subsequently purchase any of the extras, the e-ticket will be re-issued.
