Registrations have now closed.

How to Register

1. Fully complete the online registration form to the left, including payment details, and submit to IFFO.  

2. Registration fees are payable in US Dollars ($) and can only be paid by credit card through the online secure SagePay service which you will be directed to during your registration process.  In case of not being authorised, it is very likely that your bank has blocked your card for online transactions as a protection measure.  Please contact your bank and try again.  

3. Hotel accommodation will be charged in Chinese Yuan (RMB) and will be secured against the credit card details as provided to SagePay for the registration fee.  Neither IFFO nor the hotel will make any charge for the room in advance.  Charges will only be made in the case of a cancellation after Friday 4 October, a reduction in the number of nights booked or in the case of a no show.  Please note cancellation policy further below.

4. If you require a room in the conference hotel please register as soon as possible.  Although IFFO has made a block-booking of rooms, they are strictly available on a first-come, first-served basis.  If these rooms are all allocated, reservations can no longer be guaranteed.  In any case, any remaining rooms in the IFFO block will be cancelled on Friday 4 October and therefore reservations received after this date are subject to availability.  So please book early to secure.

5. Part of the registration process is to provide a recent hi-resolution ‘Passport style’ jpg photo for your ID badge - size example here.  This must be uploaded at the same time as completing the online registration.

6. The closing date for conference registrations (without hotel accommodation) is Friday18 October.

7. Once you have registered and paid online, you will immediately receive your registration confirmation and receipt from IFFO to the email address given during your registration.  If you have also booked accommodation with your registration, you should later receive confirmation of your booking direct from the hotel.  If you do not receive your booking confirmation within seven working days, please contact
