How to use your Personal SROC Account (PSA)

When you book onto the conference you will need to register as a member of SROC. This allows the system to know who you are and to store your invoice and conference schedule in your Personal SROC Account. This membership automatically expires at the end of the conference (within 1 calendar month). Your registered USERNAME acts as your ID; use the password you registered with to complete your access into your PSA. You will be asked via the confirmation email to print your INVOICE and pass it to your finance department, and to print your SCHEDULE for safekeeping. You may sign into your PSA at any time until the close of the conference if you need to retrieve either of these documents.

We recommend the use of the Guidebook conference app to manage your conference experience. There will not be a paper copy of your personalised schedule in your conference information welcome pack. Please prepare for the conference by printing out your schedule from your PSA and either use as a paper copy, or if using the Guidebook app, use the information to input your sessions before arrival at the conference.
