The Frequently asked questions

How many people from my agency can attend?
We anticipate that most agencies will be represented by one or two Owners or Senior Directors.

Are substitutes allowed?
If you have registered for the event and are unable to attend, please let us know. We can accept a substitute from your agency, providing he or she is also a senior director of the agency.
There is no right to a refund except in case of the cancellation of the event, although thenetworkone may attempt to re-sell places to delegates who cannot attend, less an administration charge, if there is a waiting list.

Is there an advantage to booking early?
YES. WE RECOMMEND YOU BOOK NOW. Places are limited to 300 by the size of the conference theatre and we expect that the event will sell out.
Each member agency of thenetworkone is guaranteed at least one delegate place, providing you book and pay by November 14th 2017. After this date, applications will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis.

Does my registration include the cocktail and the Dinners?
NO: you will need to register separately. We will communicate information soon. All registered delegates will be offered the opportunity to participate in these. The cocktail will be free of charge and the dinners will be offered at additional cost.

Transportation and Parking
The Royal College of Physicians is located at 11 St Andrew’s Place, Regents Park, London NW1 4LE:
This is:

  • 3 to 5 minutes walk from Regent’s Park and Great Portland Street underground stations; and ten minutes walk from Warren Street underground station. It is a 5 to 15 minute taxi ride from Euston, Marylebone, Paddington, Kings Cross or St Pancras (Eurostar) main line railway stations.
  • Approximately 1 hour from any of London’s main airports: Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. It is usually faster – and always less expensive – to take rail links into central London, before taking a taxi. London also has Uber.
  • There is no car parking on site, but public car parks are available within walking distance.

What if I need a visa to come to the UK?
We advise that all delegates who will need a visa to visit the UK apply as soon as possible, and before purchasing a delegate pass. Refunds will not be given to delegates who do not have a visa. If you need a letter of invitation from thenetworkone, we will be happy to provide this on request. Please contact Stephanie Geisler at thenetworkone: or +44 (0)207 240 7117.

Do I need to register separately for optional networking events?
Yes. These include all evening and early morning events taking place outside the main conference venue, the Royal College of Physicians. Some events are free to registered delegates and some are offered at additional cost, but you will need to register for all of them via Eventbrite. Numbers may be limited and if so, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

What about accessibility?
The RCP offers step-free access possibilities to all areas of the building.
There is limited car parking for disabled visitors, but this must be arranged in advance with the RCP. Call +44 207 935 1174.

What if I have special dietary needs?
Lunches and refreshment breaks will include vegetarian options. if you have any other special dietary needs, please let us know and we will advise whether the RCP can accomodate these.
