I’m not sure which ticket I am eligible for.
The early-bird tickets will only be available on the booking site when available. When the early-bird period finishes, you will be required to register for the standard ticket type

I am not sure if I’m a DTC Member or not?
Pleasemail [email protected] to confirm your financial member status. 
Anyone who has registered for the incorrect ticket type will be contacted directly by the DTC Team.

I am unable to pay by credit card – are other payment options available?
Yes – we can issue an invoice via Xero. Please email with the following details and we will forward an invoice. 
Ticket type – DTC Member, Non-Member, Enterprise
Full Name of Delegate, or if Enterprise please list the primary contact, as well as any known delegates
Full company Name
Email (to forward invoice)

Please note that the invoice must be paid in full before you will receive access to the platform and virtual event. 


Multiple colleagues from my organisation want to attend – do they each need a separate ticket?
Yes – single user login and password information to attend will be provided, based on each email address listed in the registration process. 
The most cost-effective option is to purchase an ‘enterprise ticket’ which allows you to register up to 5 delegates from one organisation. Please note that they must all have the same email domain. 
If you have more than 5 delegates wishing to attend, you can purchase additional individual or enterprise tickets.

I want to purchase an Enterprise Ticket, but I don’t know who will be attending.

Please purchase the ticket by selecting the total number of enterprise tickets you wish to purchase eg select 1 if you have up to 5 delegates, select 2 if you have up to 10 etc etc.
Ensure that you register the details of the person who will be managing your teams’ booking, as the ticket holder. This is the contact who will receive confirmation emails and invoices.
Please email the following details of each individual delegate, to the Events Team so that they can receive their individual access to the Summit:
Full Name
Email Address
Job Title

 I haven’t received my tax invoice and registration confirmation.
Please ensure that you completed your email address correctly. An email confirmation will be sent immediately to the contact email submitted on the booking form from [email protected]. If you haven’t received it after 24 hours, please email [email protected] 

Can I become a member when I register?
Not at the same time – you will need to complete or renew your membership prior to starting the registration process. 

I need to cancel my virtual ticket – can I get a refund?
As the event is being run virtually to allow for all delegates to attend around other commitments, we will not be providing any refunds. We encourage you to engage live for the two days, but you will also have access to the platform and all content and recordings for 90 days after the Summit. If you have any questions, please email [email protected] 


I can’t attend live for the full 2 days – is it still worth purchasing a ticket?
Of course! We encourage you to attend as many sessions live as possible. However, we understand that attending for 2 full days is not always possible. For this reason, each delegate will have access to the platform and all content and recordings for 90 days after the Summit. 


I live in Perth or internationally to Australia – is it worth attending?
Of course! While the time differences may mean that attending live could be difficult, delegates will have access to the platform and all content and recordings for 90 days after the Summit.
