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 13 March 2019.
See below for 2019 registration deadlines:
- Programme discount deadline - 13 March (17:00 GMT)
- Programme deadline - 10 April (17:00 BST)
After the printed programme deadline registration will close, while the team proof all registered shows for the final document, but will only re-open for web-only listings from 27 May. At this point shows can be listed on the website within 10 working days of approving their show proof, beginning from 10 June.
