3. Why has my pass been rejected or why am I on a waitlist?

The Occupational Therapy Show is driving force is to make it easier for occupational therapists to find updated information, new resources, and support from peers, all in one place.

As complimentary passes for the event are limited, we have set a maximum capacity of attendance for each role in the multi-disciplinary team. This is to ensure that every role is represented and that we can accommodate as many attendees as possible. Passes will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so we strongly recommend registering as soon as possible to secure your pass. If we have already reached the maximum number of registrations for your role, you will be added to a waiting list and we will contact you if a pass becomes available.
