Q. When is the Conference on?
The Conference proper takes place on Saturday 4th of November (registration from 11am, talks from 12-5.30pm).
There is a pre-event on Friday night for those travelling to Galway early, and a Saturday afters.
Q. Where should I stay?
There are many hostels and B&B’s within walking distance. They will book up, so check as soon as possible.
This year we have introduced an Accommodation + Conference ticket, so that
you can book your ticket & bed in one, at a guaranteed price.
Q. What kind of things will be covered at the Conference?
There will be talks, practical demonstations, a panel discussion, live podcast recording and comedy/media
table quiz. Also it’s a great chance to meet and network with like-minded people!
Q. Do I have to be in Third-level/ volunteering at a radio station to attend?
While most of the attendees might be students, the conference is open to all -we’d love to have you along,
there’s a non-student ticket available.
Under 18s are welcome with a student ticket, and to the bar afterwards, until 9pm. We would advise everyone
to bring a proof of age with them, as we will be giving out wristbands at registration to identify those
who are over 18 and can legally be served alcohol at the Saturday Social.
Q. What does a ticket get me?
You get in to the Friday night meetup (if you’re about), a welcome goodie pack on Saturday, tea &
coffees, lunch and admission to the Saturday Social in NUI Galway’s lovely College Bar Sult, and of course
the Conference itself. We need to book catering in advance, so are charging enough to cover this. This
event is strictly not for profit.
Q. Sign me up! Where can I get a ticket?
Tickets are available on Eventbrite. Booking closes on the 24th of October, as we need to know numbers for food and goodie packs. If you’re a teacher, lecturer or society auditor looking to book
a group in, give us a shout about group rates. Please remember to bring proof of age with you for registration!
Q. Will there be tickets available on the day?
As catering and goodie bags need to be organised in advance, we are not planning on selling tickets on the
day. If you want to buy a ticket after online sales close, please email us and we’ll arrange it for you.
