Information for people with visual impairments

As we strive to reduce the College’s carbon footprint we will be making several changes to how we deliver our Conference this year. Programmes will all be digital, and accessible via the delegate mobile app and event website. The app this year will be provided by Guidebook, who have specifically optimised their app so that it can be accessed and navigated using the phone’s built-in screen reader functionality.

If for any reason you have trouble accessing the programme on the app on the day, please come to the information desk at registration, and we will be happy to print a hard copy for you.  

We will also be using electronic posters this year, as part of our commitment to reduce our waste. ePosters will be available to view on the mobile app, event website and also via a number of touchscreens onsite. If you have any concerns at all in relation to accessing the poster gallery please do get in touch to discuss your requirements in more detail. 

Assistance dogs

Assistance dogs are very welcome at the Conference. There’s no need to let us know in advance, just turn up on the day!

We will be introducing self-check-in registration desks this year, to make the registration process quicker and more efficient. Staff will be on hand to help delegates use the self-check in area, alternatively you can either print your badge at home beforehand or sign in manually with a member of staff at the information desk.
