When you get to Helsingborg, you’ll find the conference check-in desks located in the lobby area of the Clarion Hotel SeaU. Simply provide your name, and you will get your own badge, serving as a ticket for all venues and sessions.

If possible, make use of picking up your badge on May 31 already. This will help you avoid waiting in the morning of June 1.

Do I have to pre-register for conference sessions?

No.

As always, you chose the session you want to attend and just be there. With limited capacity, be sure you are there on time. Few selected sessions, however, do require pre-registration: those sessions are specifically marked.

All field trips, in contrast, do require pre-registration.

Do I have to pre-register for field trips?

Yes.

Pre-registration to field trips is mandatory as available seats are ususally highly limited. Pre-registration will open early May and as a ticket holder, you’ll be informed well before the registration window opens.
