Children (under 18 years old)

Delegates must be aware that the social events at the ESE congress are likely to be very crowded and will involve the availability of alcoholic drinks. In addition, the Welcome Reception will be held in the Trade Exhibition area where a considerable amount of valuable equipment will be on display. Delegates with children should take account of these circumstances should they wish to bring children to the social events on the Wednesday and Thursday.

As a result the ESE has developed the following policy for children:

  • Children between 12 and 18 years may attend the Welcome Reception on Wednesday, ESE Reception on Thursday and Gala Dinner BUT are required to be registered as accompanying persons and pay the appropriate fee.
  • Children under the age of 12 years may attend the Welcome Reception on the Wednesday and the ESE Reception on Thursday on the understanding that the venues will be crowded.
