FAQs

When should I aim to get there?

The first seminar kicks off at 7.30am, but access to The Clarendon Room, including breakfast goodies and barista made coffee will be available from 6.30am. So take the opportunity to get in ahead of the morning traffic.



When will the seminars conclude?

The last of the seminars are scheduled to conclude by 10.30am - however, you are welcome and encouraged to stay for more coffee and breakfast bites, Q&A with TAITRA, the BIA, our assembled experts and of course, the other industry, association and media attendees, well into the morning.



Can one-on-one meetings be arranged with presenters, TAITRA, Taipei Cycle or Better Bike Business?

Absolutely. This event and its organisers are all about promoting business and creating opportunities. Send us an email or give us a call and let us know who you'd like some time with and we'll do our best to make it happen for you.



What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

For those lucky enough to be able to ride their bikes to the seminar, we will work with the MCEC management to make sure there is secure bicycle parking adjacent the foyer.

Bike parking details to follow as available.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Printed tickets or displayed on your preferred mobile device would be ideal thanks, as it will help to speed up your access and help you get a coffee that bit quicker.


Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No problem. Ideally, if you could let us know in advance, that would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise just show some ID and let us know who you are standing in for when you arrive at check-in.



Can I bring a colleague or register on the day?

Absolutely. More the merrier. Just be aware that seating and catering will be based upon registrations confirmed 48 hours before the event. So we can't promise you'll have a seat. But we'll certainly do our best to accommodate the 'fashionably late'.
