Mark Lockie, Managing Director of Science Media Partners and Director of SDW 2014 commented: "To say that we are proud that SDW 2014 has beaten all previous exhibition records is an understatement. The success of the show can be attributed to numerous factors – but selling out the exhibition floor 20 weeks ahead of the event demonstrates the trust that our exhibitor clients have in SDW consistently to deliver a knowledgeable and influential audience. New features this year, such as language interpreting in the conference, will lead to equal success in terms of attendee numbers, which are already significantly ahead of the curve."
The SDW event (and the associated DocEx seminars) has a demonstrable record in attracting a wide international audience, with a special emphasis on government participants. A record 65 countries were represented at the 2013 show.
Delegates from government departments in Asia, Africa and Latin America can access the entire three day event, including the conference and exhibition for just £399 +VAT. Government attendees from other world regions can register for £499 +VAT (Rate expires 28th February 2014.) Plus, for multiple registrations for every government delegate registered, the second is at half price.
In addition, for 2014, all conference sessions will have simultaneous translation into French and Spanish.
Industry delegates are also able to attend the SDW 2014 conference at a discounted rate. The show operates a limited-availability, stepped pricing policy. In essence this means that booking early results in lower rates. The non-government delegate rate is currently at £575 +VAT for a full 3-day ticket – less than 60% of the standard conference fee.
