Frequently Asked Questions

Got a burning question?
We've answered the most common ones below but if there's one we've missed, please go get in touch with us at leadershipconference@alpha.org

Who is the Leadership Conference for?

This conference is for the dreamer, the doer, those just starting out or the seasoned professional. You want to build your character and your confidence as a leader in Christ and you are ready to be challenged like never before.

When and where is the conference happening?

The Leadership Conference 2020 will be based at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 May 2020.

How much are tickets?

There are four ticket bands available at the Royal Albert Hall with different prices. The prices go from £35 to £219 and include a £2 booking fee.

Can I reserve tickets now and pay for them later?

Sorry, we are not able to reserve tickets. You are required to pay in full when making your booking; the system will only register your booking at the point of a completed payment. If you get to the payment page but do not pay, you will not be registered on the system and your tickets will be lost.

Can I get a refund?

If you wish to cancel your booking for Event Tickets for this event, the following cancellation fees apply (Cancellation Fees) (this does not affect your rights as outlined in clause 8 of our Standard E-Commerce Terms and Conditions):

(a) Cancellations made from 8th May 2019 to 6th October 2019, a £25 administration fee will be charged per ticket and 100% of the price of the Event Tickets will be refunded;
(b) Cancellations made from 7th October 2019 to 6th February 2020 will be subject to 50% Cancellation Fees and only 50% of the price of the Event Tickets will be refunded;
(c) Cancellations made after 7th February 2020 will be subject to 100% Cancellation Fees and 100% of the price of the Event Tickets will be forfeited.

No fee is applicable for name transfers. If a delegate can no longer attend the event, we would encourage them to arrange for someone to replace them in order to avoid losing any percentage of their booking fee. You can change the name on the registration by logging into your account and replacing the delegate information for that ticket up until the 7th February 2020.

Can I book a ticket for just one day of the conference?

The registration fee covers both days of the conference. Due to how our ticketing system works we are not able to offer a registration option to attend just one day of the event, or for attendance at the evening sessions only. We are happy for you to make your own arrangements to share tickets but regret we cannot assist in making these arrangements.

Can I pick where I want to sit?

For those attending the event at the Royal Albert Hall, the band of ticket that you purchase will dictate where you will be sitting during the conference. If you purchase a ticket in band A, B or C, you will be allocated a specific seat for the duration of the event. Band D tickets have unreserved standing space only.

Only groups within the same booking reference will be allocated seats together. It isn’t possible to book delegates in your booking into different seating bands; if you require delegates within your booking to be seated in other band please start a new booking with a different email address.

If you suffer from vertigo or a fear of heights, we would recommend that you purchase a band A ticket as these are lower down in the venue than the other banded seating.

Can children attend this event?

As this conference is adult-focused and we wish to provide a distraction-free environment for our other delegates, we regret that we are not able to accommodate children at this event. We would recommend you do not book tickets for any children who are under the age of 14. 

Will there be a live stream?

No. LC20 will be live in London only.

Is foreign language interpretation provided?

Unfortunately we will not be providing foreign language interpretation this year.

Is BSL interpretation available?

We will have BSL interpreters at the event, subject to demand. If you require BSL, please let us know as soon as you have booked onto the event by emailing leadershipconference@alpha.org.

Will catering be available at this event?

Catering is not included in your ticket price. For food and drinks, please explore the shops and cafés around South Kensington. In addition, the restaurants at the Royal Albert Hall will be open for your convenience.

Do you have any recommendations of places to stay overnight?

We’ve pulled together a list of local accommodation options to suit each budget. You can find it here.
