Bookings/Payments/Cancellations/Refunds

Events Booking

The following information explains the terms and conditions of booking and paying for places at our special interest group (SIG) meetings, events, webinars, exhibitions, symposia, workshops, forums or conferences (“Event”). By completing a booking form you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions and to the other Terms (including Privacy) posted on this Site. If you do not wish to agree then you should not complete the booking form. The annual conference has a separate booking form and is also subject to additional terms and conditions that are posted with that booking form.

Once booked onto a paying Event, your place at that Event cannot be cancelled, exchanged or refunded, unless the Event is cancelled, moved to another date or venue or if details of the Event are significantly changed. You may transfer your place at any Event to another person provided that he or she is covered by your membership and you notify us (or the host for the Event) prior to the Event being held.

Once booked onto an Event for which you do not have to pay (for example SIG meetings), you will be charged a “no-show fee” of £150 (plus VAT if applicable) if you do not attend the Event, UNLESS:

  • You have notified us not later than 12 hours prior to the Event being held that you will not be attending; or
  • You have transferred your place to another person, provided that he or she is covered by your membership, and you notify us (or the host for the Event) prior to the Event being held.

If we cancel an Event, we will notify you by email or telephone or in writing and will refund only the amount paid by you for your place at the Event. We will not refund for any additional expenditure (including travel or accommodation booked by you in relation to the Event). Refunds will be made using the same method as used to pay for the booking.

If we move the Event to another date or venue or significantly change the Event, you will be notified by email or telephone or in writing and your booking will remain valid should you wish to attend. If you notify us (by email or telephone or in writing) that you do not wish to attend, we will refund only the amount paid by you to us for your place. We will not refund for any additional expenditure (including travel or accommodation booked by you in relation to the Event). Refunds will be made using the same method as used to pay for the booking.

It is your responsibility to advise us of any change of your email or postal address or telephone number having made a booking. If you fail to do so and we are unable to contact you, you will not receive any refund.

The right to admission to any Event is jointly reserved by us and the host for any Event; health and safety, environmental and security concerns will be taken into account and reasonable conditions may be imposed upon your admittance, which if you are unwilling to accept will mean that you will not be admitted to the Event and in such circumstances no refund will be given.

For details of our Privacy and other Terms please follow the relevant link.

All prices quoted on this Site exclude Value Added tax at the prevailing rate.

When places at an Event are paid for using the on-line booking service on this Site, an automatic email will be sent to your email address with a payment reference number.
