Need-to-know logistics

You will want to arrive early as the first few hours will have many attendees flocking in. Make sure you know exactly how to get to Olympia London (see detailed Venue & Travel information)

Check in at registration in the expo hall by turning right when you come out of the lifts. (Psst- you’ll pass our booth coming back from registration so be sure to stop by!)
