The conference is now just one week away!
We are looking forward to what promises to be an exciting and informative day, filled to the brim with presentations, workshops, films, stalls, and more. Take a look at the latest version of the programme for more information.
Please let us know no later than 72 hours before the conference if you are no longer able to attend. We have worked hard to keep this event free for everyone to attend, but university catering is expensive and we don’t want to order more tea & coffee than is needed.
Please remember that our venue is the Queen’s Building on Exeter University campus. More details on how to get there, bus times, where to park if you are coming by car etc., can be found on our conference information page.
Registration is from 8.30 – 9am. Please arrive early to prevent any delays as the first presentations are scheduled to start shortly after 9am. If you are arriving in Exeter on Friday night, please join us for a drink and/or some food in the function room of the Imperial pub from 8pm. If you come to the pub, you will be able to pre-register and receive your conference pack, enabling you to skip the registration queues in the morning.
Please remember that lunch must be pre-ordered on the morning of the conference. When you register in the morning (or the night before) you will be able to choose from a selection of vegan lunch meals. To ensure quick service, lunch will be served in three sittings. When you sign up for your meal, you will also be asked to specify whether you would like to have lunch at 1, 1.30, or 2pm.
The evening meal at Herbies Restaurant in town (for those of you who have pre-booked) starts at 7.30pm. Please be there on time as we have the restaurant for an hour and the benefit gig in the NBI pub starts immediately afterwards. Even if you are not coming to Herbies, please do join us for an evening of live music and poetry at the NBI from 8.30 – 11. Donations on the door, in aid of South Devon and Cornwall Hunt Saboteurs. More information on our evening entertainment page.
If you need to contact us urgently on the day of the conference (e.g. if you are due to give a presentation but are stuck in traffic) please call our conference phone, which will be active from Friday afternoon onwards: 07786 465510
Looking forward to meeting you all next week!
