FAQs

What do I need to bring on the day?
It is essential that you bring a laptop with you. You will need to download and install the trial version of Grid 3 in preparation for the day. There will not be an opportunity to download the software on the day so it is essential this has been done beforehand.

Will my laptop run Grid 3?

I haven't got a laptop - can I borrow one?
If you are unable to bring a laptop, please let us know. We have a limited number available for pre-booking only. Please email trevor.mobbs@thinksmartbox.com to reserve a laptop (first come first served).

I need to bring my personal assistant with me - do they have to pay too?
No - please email info@thinksmartbox.com and we will arrange a complimentary place for them.

Do I need any prior knowledge of Grid to attend?
Yes, you will need a basic understanding of Grid. If you are a complete beginner we recommend that you attend our two day event that also covers the basics: book Getting Started + Doing More with Grid.

I've installed the free trial already, and it has expired. What should I do?
That is fine. Bring along the laptop with the expired trial - just let one of the Smartbox team know on arrival and we'll get you up and running.

Can I pay by invoice rather than credit card?
We prefer online payment via the Eventbrite website, but if this is not possible please contact info@thinksmartbox.com. Please note that invoices require payment within 7 days of receipt. In the case of late bookings, payment must be received before the event takes place.

Can I get a refund if I cancel?
