Registration

Q. When is the deadline for me to register for the conference?

You need to reply to the email received and send your supporting information to Security_EWEurope@clarionevents.com. The most common reason for queried registrations is using a @gmail, @yahoo etc. email address to register. Please use your official work/ military email address to register.

Conferences

Q. Why can't I see all of the presentation slides?

Q. Am I too late to submit a speaking request?
A. Once the Call for Papers has closed, the agenda is set. We do occasionally have cancellations nearer the event, so it is always worth asking, but our flexibility is limited at that point. Please send a proposed topic title, synopsis and speaker details to our Content team, and we will get in touch to let you know whether there’s any availability.

Q. How do I register to attend?
A. You can book a delegate ticket via our website once registration is open.

A. Speakers are given complementary tickets, but you do still need to register for them. You can do this via the Speaker Information Portal, which will ensure you are not charged for your ticket. The link to the Speaker Information Portal can be found in the confirmation email sent to you by the Content Team. If you cannot find it, please contact them directly.
