If I book a place at Convention but later find out I am unable to attend, can someone take my place?
The value of your booking will be transferred to the person taking your place. Please note that any resulting changes in the due delegate fee will have to be settled prior to the event. For example if you are an Individual Member of the IoF, and therefore receive an IoF member discount, but the person who is attending in your place is not, then the difference will have to be paid by midday on Friday 3rd July. The request to make changes to your booking should be made in writing. Please email

If I book a place to attend Convention on, for example, the Monday and Tuesday is it possible for me to change my booking so I can attend, for example the Monday and Wednesday?
It is possible to change the days you attend Convention. The request to make changes to your booking should be made in writing by email to by midday on Friday 3rd July.

If I book a place at Convention for two or three days but cannot attend one or two of the days, can someone else take my place on the days I can't attend?
It is possible to split a multi-day pass over more than one attendee if necessary, but all charges will be recalculated for the correct number of days for each attendee and billed accordingly e.g. a member three day pass may become a member one day pass and a non-member two day pass. Please note that should charges reduce any credit will be conducted in line with our standard terms and conditions. If possible please email by midday on Friday 3rd July 2015, or please advise the registration staff on site and they will make the necessary amendments for you.

If I book a place at Convention but can only attend the morning, can I give my badge to a colleague so they can attend the afternoon sessions?
For health and safety and security reasons it is prohibited for delegates to share badges. Full day charges will be levied against any parties found to be badge sharing.

I am not a member of the IoF but my organisation is; do I qualify for a discount?
You can only qualify for a discount as an organisational member if you make a group booking of five or more people.

How late can I book?
Bookings can be made up until 5pm on Friday 3rd July, or until places sell out, whichever is sooner.
