Confirmation of Place

Your place is not confirmed until we have received payment, and payment must be received before the event. In the case that we fill our available spaces, any unconfirmed places will be released.


Discounts are applied before VAT. The Discounts and Early Bird / Full Price calculator are applied based on your Booking Date. If you modify your booking after submission then discounts may be recalculated.

Payment must be received before the end of any discount period, to be eligible for the discount. Bookings made before a discount date, but paid afterwards will result in the new price being charged.

If using a discount code it must be entered at the time of booking. Codes entered after the booking has been confirmed or payment received will not be honoured, and no refunds will be issued.

Group discounts of 15% for 6 or more paying delegates is based on all attendees being added to the booking and paid for as part of a single transaction. If additional registrations are added to an existing group booking they will not be eligible for the group rate discount.
