East Coast Conferences is proud to operate all Conferences per the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which came into effect on 25 May 2018. This also demonstrates our commitment to protecting the privacy of all personal data provided by our delegates during the registration process.

Before registering for a conference, each delegate will be asked to give consent for data processing associated with the conference they are registering for. Please see more detail about our GDPR policy below.

Why we ask for your personal data
We are committed to protecting the privacy of all personal data you provide during the conference registration process. The following statements describe what we are doing with your data, how long we will store it and more, so that you are fully informed before your consent.
