We reserve the right to make changes to the programme or event at any time to ensure compliance with the latest risk assessment and public health advice.

Payment for all events and conferences must be paid in full, 14 days prior to the event/conference.
Cancellation fees are based upon the notice given and the type of event.  By booking venues and speakers, we are committed to a certain level of cost and therefore need to implement a cancellation policy.
