Booking Process

The booking system has been set up to capture details of both the person making the booking and the conference attendees. Multiple attendees may be booked on the one booking.

For each individual attendee, you will need to provide the attendee's name, address, email,  dietary and other special requirements, and parish or school (if applicable).

For each individual attendee, select the registration ticket type from the above list. As each ticket incurs a 50 cent processing fee, we have set up ticket types that include multiple options, e.g. Conf & Dinner (concession discount). This reduces the number of tickets per individual and the processing fees.

For each individual attendee, select the Breakout workshops the attendee wishes to attend from the drop-down lists for each Breakout Block (A-F).

For each individual attendee, select the Mega Workshop choice from the drop-down list (either Timothy P. O'Malley or Sarah Hart).

For each individual attendee, tick the boxes corresponding to the optional Sponsor Showcases the attendee wishes to attend -Thursday (John Burland), Friday (Liturgical Song) and Saturday (Willow and One License). Indicating attendance will ensure a handout package is prepared for the individual attendee.

Student Tickets: The student must be aged 16 - 26 years and must provide during registration process their student ID card or similar as evidence of eligibility for student ticket pricing.
