Registering for this event secures a space for you at the event. Online registration more than 3 weeks prior to WNORTH is strongly encouraged.

Should payment not be received within the prescribed time period, the registration will be nullified and bookings in events opened up to other Attendees. In the case of registrations received at the early rates but nullified after the early rate is no longer available, the delegate will be required to register at the regular conference rate.

Fees are subject to the date of registration and the registrant’s membership status and type.

Registrations are accepted only through the WNORTH registration system on our website and at the registration desk prior to the conference.

Accepted payments methods are: Visa, MasterCard and American Express and Paypal.
