About this event

More information here:

1. Promo code for all current IATEFL Associates:
We are once again offering a special rate for members of teaching organizations who are also IATEFL Associates. 

Please contact your Association for the promo code. You should register as a non-member and enter the promo code to pay a fee of 199GBP (saving 50GBP on the non-member earlybird rate). This applies if the booking and payment is made before 1 August 2019. After 1 August a different code applies and the Associate member fee rises to 269GBP. 
If the correct promo code is not added at the point of registration then the full amount will be charged and no refund will be given. Please note that if you are an IATEFL member you should register as an IATEFL member (and not enter the promo code) to get even more of a discount! 

2. Scholarship: As every year IATEFL BESIG is offering an attractive scholarship for first time speakers, which includes free IATEFL membership for a year, including BESIG, free registration for this conference plus GBP 500. Details are all on the website. 

3. IATEFL Global Issues SIG (GISIG) strand: This year we will be including a Global Issues SIG strand, tackling global challenges such as sustainability, climate change and inclusion in the business English classroom. 

4. Timings of the event
