We know it’s hard to believe, but right now there are still some people who haven’t made up their minds to come to the 2019 Festival. Lucky for them we plan for every eventuality, and have prepared the five main reasons everyone should be registering their place at the event right now.
The Festival has really captured the imagination of leading scientists – particularly in the UK. So much so, that increasingly we are lucky to attract incredible speakers who hugely enrich the experience of our attendees. This year is stronger than ever. We luckily got a chance to visit some of our top speakers before the […]
With just under two weeks till the festival, it’s time to start thinking logistics.
