Register for the Ideas Bazaar
You can register your attendance as either an exhibitor or as an attendee. As an exhibitor you will be allocated a stand and will be able to bring along exhibits to showcase your ideas. Both researchers and creatives can exhibit at the event.
Create an online profile
In addition to the registration form, you will have the opportunity to create an online profile where you can share details of your ideas, works, research, topics of interest and who you are looking to collaborate with. This will allow potential collaborators to discover your work and get in touch before, during and after the event.
For inspiration on how to setup your online profile, see the exhibitor and attendee profiles from the previous Ideas Bazaar:
