Buddy Scheme

The ALDinHE Conference Buddy Scheme

Coming to a conference for the first time can often be daunting. So many new people, and so many conversations! Although the ALDinHE conference is one of the friendliest around, it can also feel pretty big so we want to ensure that you have a few familiar faces to turn to from the start. The ALDinHE conference is all about community and connection, and our buddy scheme is designed with both of those in mind. 

After you purchase a ticket, you’ll be asked to complete a registration form and will be asked if you would like to join a buddy at the conference. If you would like to be a buddy to support a delegate who is new to ALDcon, you can also select this during registration.

If you would like to join the buddy scheme, we will put you in touch with a buddy before the conference so you can share a bit about yourselves. We will then invite you to a meet and greet session on the first day of the conference in Glasgow so you can meet in person, build your network, and get set for an enjoyable conference experience!

To make this work, we also need buddies! If you would like to be a point of contact for some conference first-timers, please register – we would love to have you involved!

If you have any questions about the buddy scheme, please email admin@aldinhe.ac.uk
