So, if you have registered to come, your place will have been paid for. Our events are very popular and we often have a waiting list. With this in mind, if for any reason you are unable to attend it is very important that you cancel your place by emailing as soon as possible, to enable someone else to take your place.

If you have already accessed 12 or more hours of support you may be placed on a waiting list - your place is not guaranteed until you receive confirmation from The Mainframe Team.
