Where’s the venue?
Once a venue is confirmed the event page will be updated with a Google Map of the location.
We always aim for venues close to major transport hubs – for example, in Manchester we try to make sure venues are a 15-minute walk from Piccadilly or Victoria train station.
Are there still spaces?
Should a date sell out, the page will be updated with a red sold out banner. The booking form will also be removed from the page. If it’s still on the page, the event is still available for booking.
Events and training are also updated when they are nearly sold out, so you know when they’re reaching their capacity.

The simple answer is ‘yes’. When completing the booking form say that the attendees will be confirmed later, and we can process the booking without the delegate names.
