How to book

The first step is to download the Registration Form (if you’re having trouble with the file, here it is as a .doc file) If you would also like to attend BiReCon (attendance is free with you weekend pass) please regsiter here.

If you need a registration form in a different format or in a different font, font size, or font colour please send an email with your requirements to registration@bicon2012.org.uk and we will do our best to help.

Once you have registered you need to make arrangements to pay. Scroll down for details of how to do this.

If you would like to send us your registration form by email:

  • Complete the form and save it to your desktop again.
  • Attach the completed form to an email and send your email to registration@bicon2012.org.uk with the subject ‘New booking’.

If you do not follow the above instructions you may end up sending us a blank form!

either

  • follow the above link to the registration form, print off a copy and complete it by hand (in BLOCK CAPITALS please!)

If you are booking for BiCon in advance you can pay by cheque, BACS or IBAN if you are not in the UK. We are unable to accept payments in cash except at BiCon 2012 itself.

We would prefer to recieve payments by BACS.

We will send details of how to pay by BACS when we confirm your registration.

Paying by cheque or postal order

Cheques should be made payable to BiCon 2012 and posted to BM BiCon, London, WC1N 3XX. Please write your registration number on the back of your cheque.

Please note that payments by cheque will take longer to process.

As well as using a sliding scale, BiCon also has an Equalities Fund to make coming to BiCon 2012 as accessible as possible to anyone who might want to come. For more information on the Equalities Fund, please see our Access pages.

If you wish to apply for help from the Equalities Fund, when you book for BiCon please also send an email to enquiries@bicon2012.org.uk briefly detailing the type of help you need and why you need it.

We will restrict access to your full booking and contact information to team members handling bookings. Other information is only given out to non-bookings handling team on an as needs basis e.g sessions info to sessions coordinator, or access information to accessibility officer.

We will limit information about you at the registration desk to the minimum possible to ensure you get your passes, keys, and any other things that you may need.

We will only pass on your preferred name and email address to BiCon 2013 if you have ticked the box on the registration form agreeing to let us pass your information on to them.

If you have any questions about data protection, or if any information that we are asking for is making you feel reluctant to register for BiCon in any way, please email us on enquiries@bicon2012.org.uk and we will do our best to come to some agreement.

BiCon has a strong ethos of being as accessible as possible to people with disabilities or health needs.

We will also be publishing an access report on our website which will be found under
the information about the venue, or we can send you a printed copy on request. The sooner we are aware of your needs the more likely we are to be able to provide appropriate information or support. If you are in doubt about any access issues please contact us at enquiries@bicon2012.org.uk

    Can I still book for a one day pass and just pay when I get there?

    • david says:

      Advanced booking is now closed but you can come and get a day pass on the day. In fact we tend to get a lot of people turing up at BiCon who haven’t pre-booked. You can pay at the registration desk.

    Hi!

    I’m coming up on Friday after work, so will be arriving late (9.30pm-ish at a guess) – will I be able to sign up for a weekend non-residential pass then, so I can attend the Friday night, Saturday and Sunday stuff?

    Thanks!

    — Jess :)

    • david says:

      The registration desk closes at 9pm on Friday so if you have not pre-booked and are arriving after that then you will need to phone 0845 287 2044 before 9pm and arrange with one of the team to pick up your pass once you arrive. I think you also have my number so feel free to give me a ring if you have any problems but it should all be fine.

      Also if you have a smart phone download the guidebook BiCon app as it has all the information that you should need. Goto http://guidebook.com/g/BiCon2012 get the app and from within the app use redeem code “Latimer” to get the guide.

      See you there!
