A Booking is not complete until we accept the Booking. We will send an email to the Buyer confirming our acceptance (or rejection) of the Booking within 72 hours. If we send an email confirming our acceptance of the Booking, Tickets will then be immediately available for the Buyer.
Tickets are valid for only for the attendee(s) named in the Booking and cannot be transferred to another person except with our prior written approval, which we will not unreasonably withhold or delay. If you wish to make a request to transfer a Ticket to another person, you must inform us by email at email@example.com of that person’s name and email address as soon as possible and at the latest 24 hours before the start of the Event. Tickets remain our property at all times. Possession of a Ticket does not confer any rights on you to use, alter, copy or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trade marks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket.
You acknowledge and accept that we have the right to publicly announce our business relationship with you which shall include but not be limited to announcements on social media. Such announcements shall not be disparaging or otherwise adverse to your business.
Changes To The Event And Cancellations
We reserve the right to alter the advertised content, timing and/or location of the Events or the advertised speakers or participants at any time where necessary for reasons beyond our reasonable control. Where we change the date(s) of the Event or move the Venue to a location more than 20 miles from its previously advertised location, we will provide you with notice of the same and will offer you the choice of either the opportunity to attend the Event as varied or a full refund of the amount you have paid within 45 days of receiving written notice from you.
If we cancel the Event for reasons beyond our reasonable control, we will attempt to notify you as soon as reasonably practicable and we will offer you a full refund of the amount you have paid within 45 days of notifying you.
If the Buyer cancels the Booking or you wish to return one or more Tickets or you do not attend the Event (except in circumstances where we have cancelled the Event or changed the date(s) and/or location), we will not refund any amount paid.
