We shall have no liability for losses or costs which you may incur due to such cancellation but we shall refund your booking payment (in full as soon as possible) or offer you an alternative Event if one is available.

Your correspondence should be directed to the Events & Marketing Manager at least 10 working days before the event you have booked on is due to take place. Please note, each case is considered on an individual basis and may be denied based upon a number of factors, including availability of the alternative event. No request for transfer to an alternate event is guaranteed.. You may only be able to transfer from a booked event up to 2 times, after which you will not be entitled to a refund or additional transfer due to the cost of event administration and expenses incurred up to this point.

Should you choose an alternate event that exceeds the price of your original booking, you will be responsible for paying the price different between the two events. If the alternative event cost is less than your original booking, you will receive a refund in the amount of the difference between the two events, if, and only if, your event transfer was received by the Events & Marketing Manager receives your transfer request no later than 10 business days prior to the date of the original event.
