Currently there are no requirements to be followed. Should government advice and legislation change we will adapt this to the event.
Ticket sales will take place online via metooo. In cases where companies pay for your tickets, this will follow the same process so please purchase the tickets on metooo and request a reimbursement from your company as you would do an expense claim. Please email [email protected] if you require an invoice.
If you are having any issues with the online system SIAS would advise you purchase any required tickets and email [email protected] with any queries you may have. Our email inbox is not monitored daily and this will avoid you not getting tickets to the event.
If you are purchasing tickets for an individual who is not yet a member of the IFoA or SIAS, then please purchase tickets as normal and leave the ARN field blank (or enter zeros if it requires an input). You will need to follow up with confirmation of the ARN and SIAS membership once they have it, even if this is after the ball.
If you are placing a large group booking (four full tables or more i.e for 40 people ) and will pay via a bank transfer (not debit nor credit card) then please email [email protected] and we will arrange for the tickets to be purchased separately.
