Delegate Information

Interested in joining NCT events as a delegate? Contact the IB Consultancy Events Team at eventsteam@ib-consultancy.com or call +31 71 744 0174.

Joining IB Consultancy events as a delegate guarantees you a qualitative advantage in your industry. You will learn about new perspectives and meet the right people to reach your goals. IB Consultancy organizes the worldwide Non-Conventional threat (NCT) event series in the field of CBRN, C-IED/EOD and demining.

NCT events will offer you:

  • Highly relevant speakers who offer unique insights. We aim to find speakers who you have not heard at any other conference.
  • Top quality programs, with more and better speakers than any commercial CBRNe or C-IED/EOD event.
  • The most interesting live CBRNe and C-IED/EOD demonstrations by CBRNe responders and military.
  • A combination of tone-setting industry representatives and leading decision-makers, which ensures unparalleled networking opportunities, not only during the breaks and receptions but also at our gala dinners (for selected events) and NCT Parties.
  • The most diverse audience at our events thanks to the attendance of official government delegations and guests from relevant organizations.
  • Accessible and affordable events: we use Emerging Market fees for delegates from countries that cannot afford a full delegate fee.
  • High quality venues: Thanks to our partnership with Starwood we always organize our events in top 5 star venues.
  • Interesting workshops, which are included in the delegate fee, and tackle current topics.
  • Connectivity: as a delegate you will receive access to the NCT app that allows you to connect with other participants, to view the event program, Exhibitor and Sponsors list and provides you with an interactive floor plan of the event. By posting, sharing and liking messages on the Activity Stream, you can connect with other participants like you do on Facebook and Twitter. The NCT App further gives you access to speaker presentations and company brochures, allowing you to open them on your phone or email.
  • No hidden charges: all refreshments, lunch breaks, drinks receptions and gala dinners (for selected events) mentioned in the conference program are included in your delegate fee.

How can I book the conference hotel?

On the website for your event, we have placed the link for booking a hotel room (with discount). You can also find this link in the Delegate Manual, which will be sent to you three months before the event, or at the time of your booking.

If you haven’t received the Delegate Manual, or would like us to help you with booking your hotel, please contact us using our Support Tool.

I want to cancel, how do I do this?

When you book an IB Consultancy event, we assume you will join us for the event. However, circumstances can always change. Up to two weeks before the event, you can either change your booking and have someone replace you at no costs, or you can use your payment for the event as credits towards a future event.

Within 14 days of the event, the replacement fee is EUR 50 (fifty Euros).

 

How can I access the presentations?

All speaker presentations and company brochures will be uploaded and accessible for you on the NCT CBRNe App. For every event you may join, you will receive a passkey with which a registration for the respective event on the app is possible.

If you haven’t received your login details, please contact our Events team.

I am allergic for XXX, can you accommodate me?

When you have allergies, are on a diet, or when you have (religious) diet limitations, we kindly ask you to inform us no later than two weeks before the event. We will arrange an alternative menu for you, or adapt the conference menu. Since we work with Starwood as our event partner, you can be assured that their executive chef will find a solution that is not only accommodating to your dietary wishes, but wish is also very tasty!

Please use our Support Tool to inform our Eventsteam on your dietary wishes.
