It is free to attend (with a £10 deposit refunded on attendance) and tickets will go quickly, so for the latest information check us out on this website, Twitter @UXCampBrighton, (hashtag #uxcb12), or track us on lanyrd.com.
Tickets will be released in two batches on Thursday 8th November at 12.30pm (GMT) and Friday 16th November at 2pm (GMT), available at: UX Camp Brighton 2012 Eventbrite
If you get a ticket but later find you cannot attend, please contact us (link at the top of the page and on your e-ticket) at the earliest opportunity to cancel it and allow someone else to attend. A refund of the ticket deposit can be issued up to midday on Wednesday 5th December. After that date and time, ticket deposits are unrefundable.
Are you a 'Presenter' or a 'Participant'?
At every Bar Camp there are a number of people who decided not to attend, because they feel unable to host a session. This may be due either to inexperience, a reserved nature or just being too busy to get a presentation ready.So to provide a way for these people to still attend, we have created two types of tickets, 'Presenter' and 'Participant':
- 'Presenter' tickets are for attendees who wish to present a session
- 'Participant' tickets are for attendees who wish to get involved, but not present a session
We hope this will make the event more inclusive.A possible by-product might also be that it helps to increase the quality of the sessions overall. However we wish to make it clear that we strongly encourage anyone who wishes to hold a session, including those less experienced in UX, to go for it! We want all of our presenters to feel supported before and during the event, by the organisers and all the attendees.And that is not to say that those with 'Participant' tickets should be passive consumers. We expect everyone to be active – contributing to the sessions, taking photos, tweeting, blogging, making contacts and generally getting involved.The two types will be available in both the 1st and 2nd release of tickets, see our UX Camp Brighton 2012 Eventbrite page for more details.Refundable deposit
Our tickets will still be FREE, but to help reduce no-shows and to encourage greater focus on contributing to the event, this year they will require a £10 refundable deposit (to be paid when you place your order).On arrival at the event, your attendance will be recorded and a refund issued within a week (excluding any third-party delay). There may be a small handling fee charged by your payment provider.The deposits of those who do not attend (minus the Eventbrite handling charge) will be given to our designated charity, Brighton's Spark + Mettle, who "help young people uncover their potential and harness it to a fulfilling career".We hope that these ideas will help to improve the quality of the event and we look forward to your feedback.
