Providing my patients with the best osteoporosis diagnostics and treatment advice is a constant challenge, particularly as bone researchers are discovering more about the duration and effects of medicines we prescribe every day.

I have already registered for the conference, can my colleague register using the same email address?
No, all registrations require a separate email to register with. If you have already registered using your email, you will not be able to register again using this same address.
I didn’t book a ticket for the Conference Dinner or a place on the Workshop but have changed my mind and would like to. How can I amend my booking?
You can access your booking using the link sent in your confirmation email and add and pay for a dinner ticket or amend/add a workshop choice. Alternatively, contact the Osteoporosis Conference 2016 Secretariat, Joanne Mcbratneyand they will be able to advise how you can make secure payment.
My invoice hasn’t been paid and the conference is next week, will I be still be able to gain entry to the Conference?
Delegates arriving at the Conference with any fees partially or fully outstanding will be asked to present a debit or credit card upon arrival as either payment or guarantee of payment. Where a credit or debit card is provided as guarantee of payment, this will be charged on 21 November 2016 if outstanding fees have not been settled by that date via an alternative method.
Admittance to the Conference will not be permitted without prior payment of fees or without debit/credit card guarantee. Where invoices have been sent to organisations for payment, and remain unpaid at the time of arrival at the Conference, individuals will still be asked for a card guarantee upon arrival. Individuals are therefore strongly advised to seek proof of payment from their organisations prior to arrival and, where possible, bring with them to the Conference proof of payment documents in case of query.
I registered and requested an invoice but I’ve changed my mind. Can I now pay by credit or debit card?
Yes, you can access your booking using the link sent in your confirmation email and change the payment type and make payment online via the secure payment gateway. Alternatively, contact the Osteoporosis Conference 2016 Secretariat, Joanne Mcbratney and they will be able to advise how you can make secure payment.
I have requested an invoice for my registration fees. Will this automatically be sent to my finance department for payment?
No, if you request an invoice you will be sent a confirmation email with a pdf of the invoice attached. You must ensure this is forwarded to your finance department for payment.
Can I register and request an invoice without a purchase order number?
Yes, you can register and request an invoice prior to receiving the purchase order information. Once the purchase order number is confirmed, you can then contact the Osteoporosis Conference 2016 Secretariat, Joanne Mcbratney and ask them to add this to the invoice and reissue it.
How and when do I receive my confirmation after I have registered and paid?
Once you have registered you will receive an email confirming your booking. If you have requested an invoice, this will be attached to the email and if you have paid by credit/debit card, a receipt will be attached. Once your registration form is submitted you will be sent an email immediately. If the email does not arrive, please check your spam folder or contact the Osteoporosis Conference 2016 Secretariat, Joanne Mcbratney
