Please note that all submissions will be considered for oral and poster presentations. All submissions will also automatically be considered for one of the 2016 DAPS Global Awards and submitters will be informed if they have been shortlisted.

Event FAQS / find your answers

There is no accommodation attached to the venue itself, but there are a number of hotels in the vicinity which if booked in advance are relatively inexpensive. We have provided a few options for your consideration.

Attendance at the Summit is strongly recommended for all delegates. A common question which we are asked is the whether there is a single-day delegate fee. Unfortunately we do not offer a single-day delegate fee. Given the audience, we have intentionally kept the delegate fee extremely low, given that at other conferences, you will be expected to pay £300 per day. CPD points will be allocated for both of the conference days and if they are not both attended, delegates will be unable to claim CPD points.

Another commonly asked question is regarding attendance at the Awards and not at the rest of the conference. If you or your team have been shortlisted, then this is possible, although you will need to pay £50 towards the cost of the Awards. Please do bear these points in mind.
Certificates will be issued to all delegates who attend the Summit. Individual certificates will be issued for poster presentations and oral presentations. Please note that if you have multiple submissions accepted, then you will not receive a certificate for each poster/oral presentation, but you will be issued with a letter in addition to your certificates which will confirm each of your poster/oral presentations. Winners of a DAPS Global Award and the runners up for each award will also be provided with certificates.

CPD points will be available to all delegates who attend both days of the conference. Unfortunately, CPD points will not be available for single-day attendance.
A common question that we are asked about the Summit is exact dates and times of presentations. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to provide final dates and times in advance of each presentation on account of various factors. We will endeavour to provide a specific day and time slot for each presenter a week in advance, but cannot always guarantee we will be able to do this.

Given that the Awards will take place on the Saturday, shortlisted presentations are given priority presentation on the first day of the Summit. This will not always be the case but is the rule in general. If you have any further queries, please do contact us at summit@dapsglobal.com or alternatively complete the contact form below.
For all Summit delegates who are bringing a poster, we offer a printing service for your posters. The cost of printing is £25 which includes delivery to the venue and we will assist you in putting up your poster.

It is not compulsory to use this service to bring a poster. Posters should arrive by the morning of the conference, and need to be displayed for the duration of the conference if delegates are to receive a certificate for poster presentation. Please direct any queries you may have to summit@dapsglobal.com, alternatively complete the contact form below.
There are many transport links to get to the venue and there is a substantial amount of parking at the venue which will be available for all delegates.
