Registration step by step...
1 - Connect with us
Ask for a login to join the mailing list and gain access to the Organiser area - this is where you'll find the registration form and a whole host of support materials. Please note registration has closed for 2017 but you can still connect to us and we will set you up ready for next year.
2 - Submit your details
Submit your registration form to the team - you'll see its status change online.
3 - Check your listings
Events that need our insurance will be reviewed by the team before full registration, if there's a query we'll be in touch, otherwise you will get an automatic email of approval. This might take a few weeks as we're a small team, please bear with us!
Listings go live on the website from mid-July - do check your entry is correct and present.
4 - Apply for material
The free promotional material becomes available in early summer. Once you have submitted an event you will be able to apply for it online.
5 - Keep us posted
Let us know if anything needs changing in the run up to the event. Double check your risk assessment measures. Then have a wonderful event and tell us all about it afterwards!
