We have three types of ticket, with significant discounts for those who help us to be able to plan confidently for the conference by booking early bird tickets before the middle of June. All tickets available on Eventbrite.
Conference Ticket. This includes 2.5 days of conference sessions, 2 afternoons of technical seminars, snacks, lunches and the conference dinner.
- Cost before 29th June is £160.
- Cost after 29th June will be £260.
Conference Package including Accommodation. This is easily the most popular ticket. It includes everything that the conference ticket includes, plus three nights en-suite accommodation from Monday to Thursday. Accommodation this year is in more up-market accommodation than it has been in the past, and still includes a cooked breakfast.
- Cost before 29th June is £320.
- Cost after 29th June will be £420.
iOSDevUK Team Ticket. A number of companies bring their whole team to iOSDevUK, both for the learning, and as a team building exercise - there is nothing like sharing a flat to bring a team together. The team ticket includes four conference packages and you can give us the names of those attending nearer the date.
- Cost before 29th June is £1,199.
- Cost after 29th June will be £1,600.
Train is often the easiest way to get to Aberystwyth, with a pretty two hour journey from Shrewsbury. The Monday train getting in at 15:20 is in time to attend the Monday afternoon tutorials, and the conference finishes on Thursday in time to catch the 13:30 train to London (staying for Thursday afternoon tutorials will mean catching the 5:30pm train)). You can get on any train to London with an off-peak ticket, which makes trains to/from Aber quite reasonable.
- Off-peak train tickets from London (any train after 9:30am from Euston) cost £80 return.
- Off-peak from Birmingham International is £57.
For European visitors, or those changing planes in Amsterdam or Dubai, Birmingham International Airport is the easiest place to fly into, with a direct rail link to Aberystwyth. Manchester Airport is reasonable, but you will probably need to change trains twice. Train details and ticket purchase can be done here.
For USA visitors, you will probably need to travel via Heathrow. Train from London would be via London Euston, changing in Birmingham. Drive from Heathrow takes 4.5 hours and I wouldn't do it the same day I arrived in Heathrow on an overnight flight.
