Parent and carer Information

SOA23 is a baby-friendly event and this year there will be a dedicated baby room for delegates and their children with dedicated live streaming so you don't miss out on any of the action.

This year's congress will feature*;

Registered delegates will be able to bring a companion to aid you with your little ones whilst you attend sessions. Please note the companion ticket will only allow access to the baby room, it does not allow access to the conference sessions or the exhibition hall.

Please note:
There will be no childminders or babysitters on site in the baby room.
Parents are advised not to leave their children unaccompanied.
The room is suitable for babies up to 3 years old.

We look forward to welcoming you and your baby!
