TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully.
These terms and conditions were last updated on 3 May 2007 and replace all previous terms for PEI Media Products.
PEI Media provides detailed contents and sample extracts of our publications to ensure customers know what they are buying. We cannot provide a refund once a purchase has been made. Conferences
1. Forum Fee
The forum fee entitles the registered delegate to attend all forum sessions and networking refreshment breaks, including lunch and any cocktail reception associated with the event. The fee also includes forum materials, which will be handed out upon registration.
Payment in full must be made prior to the event taking place. Payments can be made by American Express, Visa, MasterCard, company cheque or by wire transfer. If registering fourteen (14) days or less prior to the event, delegates MUST pay by credit card. Only fully paid registrations will be confirmed and must be received at least one week before the conference for registrants to be included on the official delegate list for the event.
3. Cancellation Policy
Any cancellation received more than fourteen (14) days prior to the forum will be subject to a charge of 50 % of the fee already paid or the full delegate rate, whichever is the lower. All cancellations must be made in writing (by letter, fax or email - proof of receipt will be required) to the relevant contact at PEI Conferences for that event. We regret that no refunds will be made for cancellations made within 14 days of an event and there will be no exceptions to this policy. Any cancellations received in writing less than fourteen (14) days prior to the date of the forum will receive a 100% credit to be used at another PEI event for up to 12 months from the date of issuance. This policy is necessary due to our advance guarantee obligations and the costs associated with administering the event.
4. Substitution Policy
Substitutions within organisations may be arranged as long as PEI is notified in writing in advance of the forum. No external substitutions may be made and under no circumstances may registrations be shared.
In the unlikely event that PEI Conferences postpones an event, delegate payments already received will be credited to a future PEI event, on a date convenient to the attendee and will not have an expiration date.
6. Force Majeure
If for any reason beyond PEI's reasonable control (including but not limited to: strikes; acts, regulations or orders of governmental authorities; civil disorder; disasters; acts of terrorism; acts of war; acts of God) it is impossible to run an event, PEI reserves the right to retain delegate fees as a contribution to all venue and administrative costs incurred.
7. Travel and accommodation
PEI Conferences is not accountable for booking accommodation and transfers to and from the conference venue and will not accept liability for any public or individual transport disruption or deferral. In such circumstances, our standard cancellation policy applies.
8. Speakers and agenda
Please be aware that all speakers were confirmed at the time of the published agenda, however, circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. PEI Conferences reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or agenda topics if necessary. Please visit the relevant dedicated forum website which is updated regularly.
You can cancel your subscription at any time during the first three months of subscribing and receive a refund of 70 per cent of the total annual subscription fee. Thereafter, no refund is available. All cancellation requests need to be sent in writing [fax, mail or email] to the subscriptions department in either our London or New York offices.
