For clarity, any such arrangements are strictly between the Client and the hotels concerned and the Organiser accepts no liability or responsibilities whatsoever in regard thereto.
8. Making a Payment

9. Late Payment or Failure to Pay
Once the Client’s booking has been received, the Client becomes immediately responsible for all outstanding payments for the Participant place whether or not the Client attends the event unless the Organiser notifies the Client that the booking was not successful.
Payment must be made by the due date as stipulated above. If payment is not made accordingly, the Client may be refused entry to the Event or, at the Organiser’s discretion, the Client may be permitted to make payment using a credit/debit card on the day of the Event. In accordance with the conditions above, if the Client fails to pay an invoice by the due date and does not attend the Event, the Client will remain liable for the sums due on the invoice plus interest at 3 per cent above the then current lending rate of Barclays Bank plc on the date when the invoice was due for payment.
10. Cancellation Policy
Should any Participant be unable to attend, the Organiser will welcome a substitute Participant attending in the Participant’s place at no extra cost. To arrange this the Client must notify the Organiser by email at: email@example.com with the name and job title of both the original registered Participant and the replacement Participant. Please note that the same payment details as in paragraph 9 above apply to both the original and the substitute Participant.
If written notice of cancellation by the Client is received by the Organiser up to 60 days before the Event start date a credit note for 50% of the full payment will be issued. No refunds will be made for cancellations received 60 or fewer days before the Event start date or for non-attendance.
The Organiser will have no liability to the Client for the refund of any booking fees, accommodation or other costs received by it if the Organiser is required to cancel the booking as a result of an event outside its control (including, without limitation, due to acts of God, floods, lightning, storm, fire, acts of terrorism or threats of any such acts, any strike action, lock-outs or other industrial action and a pandemic, epidemic or other widespread illness). Should the Event be cancelled for any other reason, all deposits or related payments made to the Organiser will be refunded in full to the Client within 30 days.
11. Insurance & Disclaimers
The Client and all Participants must act in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and its subordinate legislation. The Client must accept that it is their legal and moral duty to ensure that theirs and others’ health and safety is not put at risk by their actions or the actions of any of their employees or their contracted external support. The Client must ensure that it obtains its own insurance cover for the confirmed event. The Organiser has been made aware that the Event owners endeavour to work with reliable and trustworthy third party organisations that manage and supervise their activities to the highest safety standards. The Organiser confirms to the best of its knowledge and belief that all third parties involved in the Event hold relevant safety and insurance policies.
12. Health & Safety
The Event requires a basic level of fitness, strength and endurance, such as, for example, due to transporting equipment and the length of time that Exhibitors may be standing. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that all Participants have the appropriate level of fitness required. The Organiser will be happy to arrange for the accommodation of any Participant with individual requirements (e.g. wheelchair access).
The Event owners aim to meet minimum requirements set out by the Disability Rights Commission and the Disability Discrimination Act 2005. However, due to various affiliations between the Event owners and third party companies, The Organiser cannot be held responsible for any facilities that are made available by the Event owners and any such third party and any additional requirements that could be termed as specialist help which may be required to be met by any particular Participant.
All Participants must adhere to the rules and regulations of the Event owner. The Client must inform The Organiser of any particular condition that may have an effect on its booking. The Client and any of its Participants using third party facilities may be bound by the terms and conditions of the Event owner and of any third party organisation. The Organiser cannot, in those circumstances, be held responsible for claims for injury or loss, unless caused by the negligence of the Organiser or any of its employees. It is therefore a requirement of these Terms and Conditions that the Client ensures that it and its Participants are fully and adequately insured against such injury and loss and shall use only the most reputable suppliers of such third party facilities who comply with all standards and regulations and who themselves have relevant and adequate insurance.
It is within the right of the Event Owner to refuse entry to any attendee due to poor conduct.
This (without limitation) includes drunkenness, abusive language or threatening behaviour. If the Client’s behaviour or that of any Participant is likely in the opinion of the Organiser, or that of the Event owners, to cause distress, damage, danger or annoyance to any other member of the public, the Organiser reserves the right to terminate the Client’s booking from that point without notice and the Client will not be entitled to receive any form of refund, compensation or other payment in that regard. Any damage caused (whether to the fabric of the Event venue or to any person or persons including any intentional damage or damage arising from unreasonable behaviour to equipment, furnishings and public areas within the Event venue) by any of the Participants will be charged directly to the Client or, at the discretion of the Organiser, to the Participant concerned. The Client shall take note that the Organiser has the right to refuse ongoing services or entry onto the premises to any individual whose behaviour is in their sole opinion inappropriate. The Organiser does not accept liability for the behaviour of others attending the same venue or if the Event is cancelled due to the actions of another party.
Any complaints should be directed in the first instance to the Organiser or a representative of the Event owner on the day of the Event. If this is not possible then the Client should contact the Organiser in writing within 7 days of the date of the Event via email or post so that the Organiser has the opportunity to investigate the problem.
Should the problem be related to the Event venue on the day itself, details should be passed immediately to The Organiser via telephone to enable rectification if possible. If the Client continues to be dissatisfied after the Event and wishes to complain formally, this should be done in writing and sent to The Organiser’s registered office via post.
As long as the above conditions have been observed, the matter will be investigated and a reply will be sent to the Client within four weeks of receipt of the complaint. If compensation is deemed to be appropriate by The Organiser this will be limited only to the cost of the particular element of the package where the problem has arisen. Please note that compensation payments will not apply to circumstances beyond the control of The Venue owner or of the Organisers.
