Ticket types

  • Any delegates that require a carer to be present are entitled to bring a helper free of charge
  • Member and Concession Member: Tickets are for BES and RMetS members only e.g. to register as a Concession Member you should be a student or retired member of either Society.
  • Accompanying person: If you are attending the meeting and have a partner, or other person who does not wish to attend the scientific programme but would like to come along to the social programme, this rate covers all lunches, coffee breaks and poster sessions. Only the dinner would need to be added as an additional cost.
  • Discounted parent: If you are coming along to the meeting with children and both parents/carers wish to attend the scientific programme, we understand that half of your time as a parent will be looking after your child so offer a discounted registration rate for both carers. Similarly, if you are attending as a single carer and will be looking after your child for part of the time, you can register at this rate.

Accommodation & travel

Accommodation and travel is to be booked by delegates independently, we have provided information and recommendations here.

  • Applicants must provide us with an academic CV and the correspondence address for the letter.
  • Applicants must provide us with a letter of support from their institute, saying they support the delegate attending the meeting.
