FAQ

Your registration will be carried over to the Planning Festival 2021. You don’t need to do anything. We will re-calculate your registration and social event tickets, and process refund if needed.

There will be multiple social events scheduled during the festival to catch up with your fellow Planners both in-person and also virtually. 

We will be asking the speakers from Planning Congress 2021 to join us for the Festival. We’ll keep you updated on the program as we work with the speakers on their availabilities.

Planning Festival 2021 will take place over 5 days from Monday 24 May to Friday 28 May full of keynote speaker sessions, concurrent sessions, panel discussions, in-person social events and the exhibition hall.
