What if my preferred workshop session is full?

Each workshop is being offered twice – at session 1 and session 2. If you try to register for your preferred workshop and it is full, please try the same workshop for the other timeslot first. If that is also not available, please select your second option. You can email cspticketing@oceaniamedia.co.nz with any queries.

Can I change my workshop registration?

There are limited spaces available in each workshop session, and spaces are filled on a first in first served basis. If you need to change your registration, you can email cspticketing@oceaniamedia.co.nz with the details of what you want to change and we will do our best to accommodate your request.


Can I register for someone else?

You can register on behalf of someone else provided you have their permission and have completed the required registration process including valid and confirmed payment.

Can I register before I have my ticket?

No, you need to purchase your ticket before you register for any workshops. Once your payment is confirmed you will receive an email to register for your workshops. You’ll need your ticket ID (located on your ticket) to complete your workshop registration.
