Group Booking Discount

Discounts available for group bookings of 4 at the ASM

For every group of 4 people from the same place of work attending the ASM a group booking discount can be awarded. The discount will be calculated as 50% off the lowest registration fee of the 4 people. This could be a saving of as much as £340* as long as you book to attend together, bringing the cost per head down.

*Example discount amount based on 50% of £680 being the lowest registration fee of the 4 attendees.

Process:
To benefit from this discount, you will need to provide the names of your group members at the time of registration. Individuals should register themselves as normal online. When it comes to the payment section you should select to pay by invoice.

At this stage you will be asked if you are booking as part of a group and asked to complete the names of the others that make up your group of 4.

Once all 4 of you have registered online we will then raise one invoice to your place of work for all 4 delegates (or we can invoice an individual for all 4 delegates if preferred) including the discount. Please note however that we cannot raise multiple invoices for a group booking. It is recommended that you aim to register at a similar time to each other to enable a smooth process.

Terms and conditions:

  • The group booking discount cannot be applied retrospectively (i.e. if after you have booked to attend the ASM you discover 3 or more of your colleagues are also attending but have already booked individually we cannot apply the discount across multiple payments).
  • It is the responsibility of the individuals concerned that make up the group to ensure that all group members register online.  If one or more members of the group do not register online before the start date of the event then the discount will become null and void and all remaining members who have registered online will be invoiced individually at the full applicable registration fee.
  • As a group booking, if one or more members of the group cancel their booking then the discount becomes null and void and the usual ASM cancellation policy for that individual will apply.  Remaining members will be invoiced individually at the full applicable registration fee.

Bring a buddy competition

According to our recent membership survey tells us that 92% of you would recommend the ASM to a colleague, so we’d like to ask you to do just that by bringing along a colleague/friend who hasn’t attended an ASM before (or at least not in the past 5 years). Help us to share our knowledge and experience with a wider audience. Being part of a MDT organisation was the number one reason given by members as to why they joined and remained members of the Society so help us to spread the word! 

As a pair you and your buddy will be entered into a prize draw to win free attendance for you both to attend a BPS Study Day of your choice in 2018/2019. You do not have to attend the same Study Day.

We have 10 places to give away in total, so 5 lucky ‘pairs’ could be benefitting from an additional educational event in 2018/19 at no charge!

Process:
To be entered into the prize draw you will need to provide the name of your ‘buddy’ at the time of registration. Individuals should register themselves as normal online.

On the registration form there will be a tick box asking ‘are you bringing/attending as a buddy?’ You need to select yes, and provide the name of your buddy.

We will then tally your registrations together as a pair and automatically enter you both into the prize draw.

The draw will take place on Monday 21st May 2017 and the winners notified by email.

Terms and conditions
Prizes cannot be rolled over to 2020.

To be eligible for the prize draw, one member of the pair must not have attended an ASM in the past 5 years. If both members have attended an ASM in the past 5 years they will not be entered into the prize draw.

It is the responsibility of the individuals to know/check if they have attended an ASM in the past 5 years.

If either member of the pair cancel their attendance at the ASM then they will not be entered into the prize draw
