Get Your In-Person Festival Ticket Below

The Festival of Genomics & Biodata is an in-person event, there is no digital/hybrid access.

However, to help you get the most out of your attendance, all attendees will receive online access to digital recordings of sessions from all 14 theatres, within 3 weeks of the event.

We anticipate approximately 95% of sessions being available digitally. You must attend the Festival in-person to receive access to the recordings.

Festival tickets are free for the vast majority of attendees, but not all. If you’re in any doubt about which ticket to choose, have a look at the ‘ Registration FAQs’ at the bottom of this page.

Separate note for patients, carers, families of patients and patient organisations:

Using personal email addresses - We previously made the decision to ask all attendees to use work email addresses to register. This was to ensure we could verify the identity of all Festival attendees, to prevent unwanted approaches and harassment of attendees (as has happened at other large scale events), and for security reasons (so we know the true identity of every participant). If you are a patient, patient carer, family of a patient or a patient organisation and would like to access The Festival but do not have a work email address, simply email with your first name, last name and contact email address (plus your affiliation and organization - if you would like to).

  Registration FAQs

No. The Festival is taking place in-person ONLY. So, to participate in the Festival, you will need to travel to London and attend in-person.

Keeping The Festival free to attend, in the long run, is a priority. It’s important to the business model that supports free attendance of The Festival that we create a vibrant, dynamic, well-attended LIVE event. We want to ensure as many people attend the in-person Festival as possible, so that our sponsors and exhibitors (who ultimately pay for the event and subsidize free tickets) meet as many people as possible. This keeps this, and future Festivals, free to attend for more than 90% of our attendees. We are developing our digital offering for the future, particularly for those who cannot travel to The Festival in-person.

A Festival ticket gives you access to the theatres for the agenda sessions, networking activities, the main exhibition floor and the drinks reception as well as a host of activities taking place during the Festival itself!

You must use your work/organization email address when registering for the Festival. We do not accept registrations using a personal email address.

The Festival is free to attend for people working exclusively for a healthcare provider, a research institution, a not for profit organisation, a registered charity or a pharmaceutical company (with an existing drug pipeline).

This ticket applies if you work for a company that sells technology or solutions to research institutions, hospitals or pharma companies. This ticket is also the correct option for companies that sell services or products to our sponsors and exhibitors.

If you are eligible for 2 (or more) different types of tickets due to your dual (or more) affiliations then the most expensive ticket type applies. For example, if you qualify for a free ticket due to working for a research organisation but also work for a Solution Provider / Technology Provider then you must purchase a Solution Provider / Technology Provider ticket.

If you purchase the wrong type of ticket (for example, you purchase a student ticket when you should have purchased a Technology/Solution Provider ticket), your ticket will be cancelled, and a partial refund given (after credit card processing fees and a $20 admin fee have been applied).

There are a limited number of undergraduate and master’s student tickets available so we would recommend registering for your ticket as soon as possible.

To apply for a press pass please contact Please note it is not possible to apply for a press pass during the Festival. Press passes must be applied for in advance. Conditions apply.

Following feedback from attendees and exhibitors, we've taken the difficult decision not to allow access to any recruitment consultants for The Festival in 2024.

Please note that tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
