What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring your eTicket with you to the conference. This will be emailed to you one or two days prior to the conference. You may find that having lots of business cards with you for the networking sessions is also helpful.

What if I have special requirements?

If you have any particular requirements, disabilities, access, or any other needs we should be aware of, please do let us know when you register for the event. Alternatively, please email lerato@itweb.co.za.

What happens if there is a venue change?

Very occasionally, we may have to change the venue of the conference due to refurbishments or issues with the venue itself. Should this happen, you will be personally notified and sent all of the relevant information for the new venue. Our conference website will also be kept up-to-date of any changes.

How many attendees will be at the conference?

We anticipate in the region of 400 delegates to attend this event. This does vary, so please ask our customer service team onsite.

What happens if a speaker cannot attend?

Conferences are organised many months in advance of the conference itself and as the date of the conference approaches, sometimes we may need to make substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. This is due to speakers being unable to attend for personal or business reasons and whilst we make every effort to find a direct replacement, sometimes this is not possible within the timeframes we are given and in order to allow any replacement speaker to sufficiently prepare a quality presentation ITWeb Events reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or topics if necessary. Any substitutions or alterations will be regularly updated on the conference website.

What conference materials will be made available on the day?

On the day of the conference, you will receive a delegate bag including the Security Summit visitor guide, notepad, pen and sponsor documentation. The actual presentations will not be included in the delegate bag as speakers often wish to update their presentations following questions and debates on the day itself and so will generally request that we publish the presentation after the conference.

The presentations will be made available one week after the event. You will be sent email notification after the event providing you with access to the PowerPoint presentations, as well as audio recordings of the presentations. Please note that not all speakers provide us with a presentation and that not all speakers will give permission for their presentations to be distributed.

When will I receive the conference materials?

The speaker presentations themselves will be made available to all delegates one week after the conference.

Are all of the presentations available on the web?

We ask all of our speakers for permission to publish their PowerPoint presentations, as well as audio recordings we make on the day, on a protected area of the website for delegates to download post-event. Not all of our speakers give us permission to do so. What we are legally permitted to publish online will be made available to you as soon as the speakers have released their updated versions. This tends to be within one week of the conference itself. You will be notified by email once presentations online, allowing you access to the site for you to download at your leisure.

Note only delegates that have paid in full for the conference will receive access to the presentations.

Will I receive a copy of the delegate list?

For privacy purposes ITWeb Events does not release this information. You will however have ample opportunity to network with all attendees throughout the event.
