  • The Awayday is primarily aimed at freelance ELT editors and proofreaders. However, those with other roles within the sector are very welcome to attend, and we usually have a few authors, designers, picture researchers, permissions consultants, etc. 
  • If you are purchasing a Freelancers' Awayday Ticket, indicate whether you would like to be allocated a 15-minute one-to-one slot with Phil Hendy (accountant) during the ticket purchase process, and then book your slot using the link in your ticket confirmation email.
  • If you are purchasing a Publishers' Awayday Ticket, note that you may be requested not to attend certain sessions if they are of a sensitive nature (e.g. presentations by publishing houses about their ways of working and publishing plans). We usually offer an alternative session in these cases.
  • The pre-conference dinner and the Awayday are separate events. Many of the Awayday delegates stay in the
    hotel the night before the Awayday and also attend the dinner. However, local freelancers may choose to attend the dinner only.
  • Tickets are non-refundable and the booking fee is included in the price. We recommend that you take out insurance (offered by Billetto during the check out process).
