Conference Booking

Welcome to our conference booking page

Please note SDW 2018 has already taken place - booking for SDW 2019 @ Identity Week, (11-13 June, ExCeL London) will open later this year.


alt SDW Discounted Tickets

Some of our tickets for SDW are priced using a sliding scale, based on availability. When booking opens, you will see the current price band and the number of tickets left at that price.

Discounted tickets include exactly the same benefits as fixed price tickets - so choose this option if the discounted ticket price at the time of purchase is less than your relevant fixed-price ticket.

All discounted tickets must be paid for by credit card at the time of purchase.

alt SDW Fixed-Price Tickets

If you wish to purchase a fixed-price ticket, select the appropriate option and click Purchase to be taken to our booking process. Payment can be made by credit card. In all cases, monies must be received before the day of the event.

Please note that we reserve the right to require government or affliliated association members to provide evidence of their affiliation.

alt Government Offers

SDW is an international event and we welcome attendees from across the globe.

  • Look out for our early rate for government attendees
  • Buy two government rate tickets at the same time and the second will be half price - please contact us for group rate deals
  • Heavily subsidised places for developing nation government delegates - see list of qualifying nations

Government rate tickets include access to all DocEx conference sessions in addition to all other conference sessions.

alt What does my ticket include?

Your ticket (both discounted and fixed-price) includes access to all areas of the event. The only exception is that non-government attendees cannot attend any Government-only DocEx sessions - alternative conference sessions will run simultaneously.

Tickets include all refreshments and conference materials. Presentations will be video recorded and, where permitted, will be provided online shortly after the end of the event along with the Powerpoint presentations and other show information. Tickets also include access to the SDW Soirée in Westminster Abbey Gardens, Monday 25 June (RSVP required to be included on the guest list).

 Please note ticket prices are not inclusive of VAT.
