Delegate registration at the event
All delegates are asked to visit the registration desk, located at the entrance of the conference centre, to collect your name badge and delegate bag. In the venue on the tables, you will find your congress stationery, as well as a congress journal with information about the congress, the programme, our speakers, sponsors, and other useful information. Please take a few minutes to browse the congress journal.

Social media
Delegates are welcome to use their phones on silent for tweeting throughout the event. 
Use the hashtag #AGBIZcongress18 to take part in the online conversation.

Refreshments and lunches will be served in the foyer area, allowing you the opportunity to view the displays, meet the exhibitors and network with other attendees. For those delegates who have registered with special dietary requirements, please make a member of catering staff aware of your request when taking meals. There will be wine available on tables at the Welcome Function and at the Gala Dinner - all other drinks can be ordered from the cash bar. 

Underground parking is available for delegates not staying in the Boardwalk Hotel. When entering the parking, congress delegates will receive parking vouchers valued R40 each, which will be payable at the pay station.

Please help us by taking a few minutes to complete the short questionnaire that will be handed out towards the end of the congress. Your feedback is important to our development of future congresses and other activities.
