Payment must be made at the time and using the methodology prescribed in order to receive Confirmation of attendance at the event. Where an Event requires payment, the Event Organiser will furnish a VAT invoice on receipt of payment.
Events are often held in premises not directly owned or managed by the Event Organiser. The Applicant agrees to be bound by any regulations pertaining to the venue and Event, whether imposed by the Event Organiser or by the manager of the venue.
The Event Organiser will make reasonable endeavours to highlight any unusual regulations or restrictions when promoting the Event. For Events at which hospitality is provided, Applicants accept full individual responsibility for the selection and consumption of food and drink accepted.

The Event Organiser may change the venue of the event from the promoted venue at their sole discretion. The Event Organiser must bear in mind reasonable travel expectations of Attendees in this case.
For chargeable events, refunds are not permitted after Confirmation is issued and payment has been made.
Should the Event Organisers be unable to run the event as promoted, holders of a Confirmation will be entitled to a refund of payment.
Resale of places is not permitted. In the event that the Attendee is unable to attend, their place may be transferred to another individual in the same organisation as the Attendee at the sole discretion of the Event Organiser. Tickets may not be transferred outside an organisation.
Change requests are permitted up to 1 week before an event. If accepted, changes will bear an administration fee. The new Applicant may attend only if they are in receipt of a Confirmation issued by the Event Organiser.
