When you arrive on Monday morning, please go to the Howard Building. If you need directions then please ask at the Porter's Lodge at Downing College (next to the main entrance gate).
If you arrive on Sunday, your key can be collected from 2pm on the day of your arrival from the Porter's Lodge if you have booked extra accommodation. Early check-in is not available on Monday or Sunday.
The registration desk can be found in the Howard Building. It will be signposted onsite on your arrival. You will receive your badge and documentation at Informa Connect's registration desk in the Howard Building (ground floor). Your badge should be worn at all times.
Our team will be staffing the desk throughout the week during conference hours so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
There is a gym onsite; please ask the team about how to access it when you arrive.
