As a suggestion,
The FULL details of the Saturday and Sunday program should be clear on the front page.
Having to download a PDF to find them is not user friendly.
The conference is not cheap and people can not quickly see what they are getting. Smartass

On first viewing it seems expensive particularly as Lunch is not included on the Saturday and Sunday which is a bit unfortunate however £110 does include evening events (Friday and Saturday). I would have preferred a lectures only option which would again bring costs down for those not wanting to join in the social events and being on a tight budget. There is an obvious breakdown of costs for week after events and meals, shame not done for the weekend

Having been involved in the organisation of 3 NAHMO conferences I appreciate events like this are not easy to stage and are costly. the price is what it is

I don't mind downloading a pdf for details of talks etc - Hidden Earth for instance doesn't announce talks till late the night before .

Finally It would have been nice to have an early bird discount, as often happens with NAHMO and other similar conferences there is absolutely no incentive to book until a few days before which is counter productive and I feel an error

I agree with Mike - a lectures only option would be good.
