Terms and conditions
Once we have received confirmation of your booking in writing either by fax, post or via our online booking system, we will send you an automated confirmation email. If you request to be invoiced, payment terms will be 28 days from date of booking. An invoice will then be generated and sent out to you via post. If your company uses Purchase Order Numbers, please supply this at the time of booking as failure to do so may cause problems with your booking. If you chose to pay by credit card you will receive an email confirmation from RBS WorldPay and later a VAT receipt from our accounts department. Please note that we must receive full payment prior to the event start date. Booking form submission (in any form online, fax or post) does not guarantee a place but the dispatch by us of an email confirmation constitutes a legally binding contract. If you have not received your confirmation email 5 working days after submission of your booking, please contact the Customer Services team on +44 (0)20 8267 4011 as we may not have received your booking. Haymarket Conferences are unable to accept responsibility for the non-arrival of information. Haymarket Conferences reserves the right to decline any booking, at any time. Haymarket Conferences reserves the right to vary the content, timings, location and/or speakers of events and as such accept no liability for variations.
By registering for an event, Haymarket Media Group can provide you with information relating to your booking and other Haymarket related products or services via email, direct mail, fax or telephone. Please write to the Marketing Manager, Social Brands Event 2012, Haymarket Conferences FREEPOST (LON3727) 174 Hammersmith Road, London W6 7JP, UK if you do not want to receive this information. We may also make your details available to carefully screened companies (excluding email addresses) who have offers that may be of interest to you.
CANCELLATIONS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
All cancellations MUST BE MADE IN WRITING to firstname.lastname@example.org and received by us no later than 19 February 2012. It is the booker’s responsibility to ensure that we have received the cancellation. Such cancellations are subject to a handling and administration fee of £99 per delegate, which will be deducted from any due refund or invoice, whichever is appropriate. We regret that no cancellations are accepted within 20 days of the event date due to the way in which we are in turn charged by our suppliers. However, a substitute delegate can always be nominated. Substitutions on the day of the conference are made at the organiser’s discretion only. Pre-payments will not be refunded and invoiced sums will be payable in full, except in cases where it has been possible to mitigate loss. Haymarket Conferences will not offer refunds to delegates due to a terrorist alert or incident unless the conference is cancelled. In this instance, Haymarket Conferences will retain up to 50% of the conference fee to cover marketing, administration and delegate registration costs.
ON THE DAY
Please note that we may take photographs, video and audio footage of the event, which may include speakers and the delegation, and this may later be used in editorial features and/or in marketing and promotional material.
Whilst in attendance at any Haymarket event, if your behaviour is deemed disruptive, offensive, dangerous, illegal, or if you are found to be distributing unauthorised material we reserve the right to eject you without any prior notice or refund.
Audio and visual recordings or the distribution of commercial materials are not permitted without our prior consent.
We can accept no liability for damage to or loss of personal belongings at the event venue.
SPEAKER CANCELLATION & CHANGES
We arrange our events and speakers up to 6 months in advance and, as the date of the conference approaches, sometimes speakers are prevented from attending for personal or business reasons.
With the increasingly challenging market conditions, we cannot guarantee any particular case study or speakers, as our speakers themselves cannot guarantee their attendance to us. We appreciate your understanding.
We endeavour to find suitable replacement speakers of the same calibre. Often, however, a direct replacement cannot be found or found with enough time for the replacement to prepare a quality presentation.
Please visit the speaker profile page for regular updates on the speaker faculty.
