Do I have to book for the full conference to be able to come to the Friday opening?

No. If you would like to attend the mihi and meet-and-greet and do not plan to attend the full conference,  please use the contact form to contact the organisers. They will advise you of the price. This Friday evening event is free for those who have booked for the full conference with or without the dinner.
