All attendees need to register. If you already have passes as part of your contract, you must register the names of the delegates who will be using them before 27 April 2018. We will contact you with information on how to do this in February.

You can register additional attendees HERE.

Once registered for the event, each attendee will receive an email confirming their attendance and email address. Please remember the email address used to register as this will be needed to pick up your badge onsite.

Please note: only registered attendees receive log in information to the ITW meeting planner, MeetMe, so make sure you register your team as early as possible to ensure they have access to MeetMe when it goes live in March. If you have any problems with registration, please email the team at 


There are special ITW rates available at the Hyatt and Swissôtel, however these generally sell out quickly. We also have special ITW rates at many other local hotels if you miss out or would prefer to stay off site. Our official housing agent, Gray Dawes Group , will be able to assist. CLICK HERE for further information.

Please note that Gray Dawes Group is the only official housing company associated with ITW 2018. While other hotel resellers / agencies may contact you offering housing for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the event. Please be wary of providing any company or personal information over the phone to a third party. If in any doubt, please feel free to contact us.
