    3. Delegate passes issued for use at the conference are valid for the named attendee only and cannot be transferred or shared without written permission by Content Canada.
    4. We reserve the right to refuse to accept any registration.
    5. We reserve the right to refuse admission to, or eject from the conference, any person who fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions or who in our opinion represents a security risk, nuisance or annoyance to the running of the conference. You agree to comply with all reasonable instructions issued by us or the venue owners at the conference.
  2. Ticket prices and payment
    1. We reserve the right to change ticket prices at any time, but changes will not affect registrations which have already been confirmed.
    2. UK registrations are subject to current rate VAT.
    3. Where we have invoiced for your ticket, payment must be received in full and in cleared funds no later than 48 hours before the conference.

  3. Changes and cancellations
    1. We reserve the right to change the format, speakers, participants, content, timing, venue location and programme or any other aspect of the conference at any time and for any reason, whether or not due to a Force Majeure Event, in each case without liability. Where we alter the time or location of the conference, we will provide you with reasonable notice and offer you the choice of either a credit for a future event (up to the value of sums paid by you in respect of the conference) or the opportunity to attend the conference as varied.
    2. We reserve the right to change the date or cancel the conference at any time for any reason. Where we change the date or cancel the conference for any reason except due to a Force Majeure Event, we will offer you the option of attending any rearranged conference we choose to organise. If you notify us in writing before the date of the conference that you do not wish to attend the rearranged conference or if we elect not to rearrange the conference, you will be entitled to either a credit note or refund (up to the value of sums paid by you in respect of the conference).
    3.

Any of your fees received by us shall be applied to any rearranged or rescheduled conference held pursuant to this condition and you will not be entitled to object to such rearranged or rescheduled conference or have any right to claim any compensation in respect thereof.

Substitutions with employees from your organisation are welcome at no extra cost provided that we have at least 48 hours prior notice of the name of your proposed substitute and have received payment in full. Please notify us of any substitutions by email [email protected]. In all other respects delegate registrations are issued for your personal use only and cannot be shared with any person during the conference.
    7. No refunds will be given in respect of any cancellations or non-attendance.
