Registration fee instalment option

We offer a staggered payment plan available option to those who would benefit from not having to pay the full fee due all at once, at the point of registration. If you are interested in this option, then please check your eligibility for the scheme via the link below:
You have completed the show registration form, are ready to submit with all required fields filled, and all the information you have provided is final and ready to print.
You agree to a set of fixed instalment dates on which payments must be received.
If you fail to make the payments as agreed, we will cancel your show registration and refund all monies received up to that date.
Please note that if you are looking to take advantage of the discounted registration fee then full payment must be received by 17:00 on 11 March 2020.
