Registrations and enquiries

If you want to attend the conference, please contact your branch, who can register you as a delegate or visitor on the Online Conference System.

If you have any queries about the conference, contact our conference office (see details below).

Travel arrangements

Branches are asked to book all travel arrangements for conference through Stewart Corporate Travel. Travel application forms are in the conference bulletin.

Wherever possible, please ensure train tickets are delivered to you directly as collecting them from stations incurs an extra charge.

Travel costs for delegates will be funded nationally; travel costs for visitors must be paid for by the branch.

Branches are responsible for funding their delegates’ and visitors’ attendance at conference. Subsistence should cover the cost of accommodation, meals, childcare, dependent care and facilitation.


Branches are encouraged to arrange accommodation through Business Events Bournemouth. The dedicated webpage for UNISON Higher Education Conference is:
