  • When should I pay for the conference?

    Full and cleared payment is due immediately and must be received prior to the Congress.

    If full and cleared payment has not been received prior to the event start date then, at our discretion, you may be asked to make payment using a credit card on the day.

    If full and cleared payment has not been received prior to the invoice due date, or if no invoice was requested, by the event start date then, at our discretion, you may be asked to make payment using a credit card on the day.

    Once your booking has been received you are liable for all outstanding payments for your delegate place, therefore non-attendance at an event still incurs the fees owed.
