All bookings must be made, and can only be amended through this link, or by calling the Marriott’s reservation line.

Please reply to this e-mail if you are going to be sending an insert and include what you will be sending  – boxes have a habit of getting lost in hotels and it is easier to find them if I know what I am looking for.

  2. Please supply 200 inserts for the delegate bag
  3. Please ensure that inserts arrive between Saturday 6 August 2016 – Monday 8 August – if they do not reach the venue by this date, they will not be placed in the delegate bags.

Please do not deliver / send items before Saturday 6 August
