Registration for the 2019 Annual Conference is now closed. If you are joining us in Warwick, you can find information below or further information on the joining information page.

The Annual Conference is our flagship event.  It brings together hundreds of academic and professional economists to present the latest developments in economics and showcase their real-world application.

We will be live streaming some of the keynote lectures and sessions during the conference here.


The main Conference will take place in the Oculus Building and Social Sciences Department on campus. Delegates can register onto the Conference on the ground floor of the Oculus Building. The registration desk is open throughout the Conference with early registration for delegates arriving on Sunday 14 April between 6.30-7.30pm.

Please collect your badges, welcome packs and Gala Dinner tickets at the earliest opportunity to avoid the peak registration time of 10am-11am on Monday 15 April. We ask delegates to wear your name badges at all times for on-site security and access to Conference sessions and events.
