Certificates of attendance


Registration is now open! Everyone who is listed on the conference programme and who wishes to attend the conference in person needs to register and pay in full before attending the conference

Registration at the Conference

The delegate registration fee includes access to conference sessions, lunch and all-day refreshments, and many of the evening wine receptions. The fee does not include accommodation, the conference dinner (which is optional) or any pre-conference workshops/symposia. 

Please also see the cancellation policy at the bottom of this page.

We welcome attendance and participation from all members of the geographical and related communities/disciplines and other interested parties. Given the content and nature of the annual conference, most student attendees are ordinarily at postgraduate level. If you are a student who is under 18 and are interested in participating in the conference, please contact the conference organisers at AC2017@rgs.org to discuss this before registering.

More information is available here. A provisional programme will be published shortly.

Brexit: a geographical conversation

Brexit is innately geographical, in its causes, reactions, and consequences. This event, organised jointly by the Economic Geography and Political Geography Research Groups of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), provides an opportunity to further develop geographical conversations about Brexit, with a range of initial provocations being provided by speakers followed by extended Q&A and discussion periods. Fees are: waged - £30; unwaged and students - £10. More information, including a provisional programme, is available here.


Bookings for this event are non-refundable unless a medical certificate or similar evidence can be produced.

If you do cancel your booking by producing a medical certificate or similar evidence, cancellations made up to eight weeks in advance will incur a £30 administration fee, and cancellations made thereafter will incur a £60 fee. We cannot give any refunds for cancellations made less than seven days before the event, during, or after the event.
