HBI is a global event where we value the exchange of ideas and best practice between different countries and regions. We recognise that a conference based in a top London venue can seem expensive to delegates coming from some emerging markets when they are already bearing high travel costs. To make the event as inclusive as possible, we offer a special lower rate for delegates from companies headquartered and operating in Africa (excluding South Africa and the Middle East), Indian sub-continent, south-east Asia (excluding Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong) and Latin America. Delegates from these countries can claim a 40% discount on the standard price by booking below.
