Guests Manual

Entry passes

Each guest at the Trade show receives a name badge from the JONAS Events registration system – badges were sent out between 14:00 – 15:00 on Friday October 13th 2017. If you require name badges to be resent, please email [email protected]

If you would like to bring a guest with you, please ask them to register for their own name badge here, print out the badge and bring to the show.

Note: The above applies to speakers who are NOT having a stall at the event. If you also have a stall, please use this form here instead to register for your name badges, and read the exhibitors manual for logistical info for exhibitors.

For identification at the entrance and during the event, guests should download their name badges using the link provided in the name badge email, print out these badges beforehand, and bring the printouts with them to the entrance, then at the Registration Desk (location mentioned in the “Entry Point” section below), collect badge stock and lanyard with which to affix the printed name badge to your clothing.
