Information for Overseas Delegates

The Geographical Association welcomes delegates from outside the UK. Please note full payment prior to Conference must be made by all overseas participants. This can made online using a credit/debit card or by sending an international bankers draft in Pounds Sterling. We regret that we are unable to issue an Invitation Letter to participants outside the UK.

This year's chosen charity

Every year the GA donates a portion of the Annual Conference and Exhibition delegate fees to a charitable organisation chosen by the current GA President. This year we will contribute £1 per paying delegate to Threshold.

Threshold is a housing and homelessness charity in Greater Manchester offering a range of services supporting vulnerable people so that they can live healthy, safe and promising lives independently.

Among these services are the Moving Forward service, supporting young people affected by abuse in the family; and the Oldham Floating Support Partnership which supports people to avoid crises in their lives.


Accommodation options via ConferCare are now fully booked. You can find your own accommodation on the Visit Manchester website.

Advance booking for social events

In addition to the main Conference programme, a number of social events will take place on the Thursday and Friday evenings which need to be booked in advance. This year's events include the annual Conference Dinner, a Canal Cruise and Thai Banquet. Further information is available on the Events page.

The booking deadline for these events has now passed.
