Herein, ‘we’ means Emperum Group (and ’us’ and ‘our’ will be construed accordingly); and ‘you’ means our customer or potential customer for products (and ‘your’ will be construed accordingly).
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an ‘invitation to treat’. When you place an order to purchase a product or service we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order and confirmation of registration. The registration email constitutes your ticket that entitles you to attend the conference.
You warrant to us that:
a. You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts, and you have full authority, power and capacity to agree to these terms of service;
b. The information provided in your order is accurate and completed.
Price and Payment
Prices for products are quoted on our website. Fees are inclusive of programme materials and refreshments. Payments must be made upon the submission of your order and received in full prior to the conference date. We reserve the right to refuse admission if payment is not received in full prior to the conference date.
Due to the limited availability of conference space, we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment. We are not responsible for any additional charges that your credit card company may take in paying for your purchase.
Early Bird Rate, Discounts and Special Offers
In order to qualify for any discounted rates, special offers or early bird rates, booking and payment must be received before the deadline date listed on the website and related conference marketing material.

a. We reserve the right to determine the theme, scope and content of the conference. Whilst every reasonable effort will be made to adhere to agreed package, we reserve the right to change event co-hosts, delegates, dates, location, sessions and omit event features or merge with another event. In the event that we permanently cancel the event for any reason, including but not limited to “force majeure,” and provided that the event is not postponed to a later date, the client shall be reimbursed for the full amount. We reserve the right to make alterations to the conference programme, venue and timings.
b. In the unlikely event of the programme being cancelled liability will be limited to the amount of the fee paid to us by the attendee.
c. In the event of it being found necessary, for whatever reason, that the conference is being postponed or the dates being changed, the organisers shall not be liable for any expenditure, damage or loss incurred by the delegate.
d. If by re-arrangement or postponement the event can take place, the booking between the delegate and the organisers shall remain in force and will be subject to the cancellation schedule above.
Attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation and any costs incurred in attending the event. Registration solely entitles the attendee access and participation in the event. Lodging is not included.
Views expressed by attendees are their own. We cannot accept liability for advice given, or views expressed, by any speaker at the conference or in any material provided to delegates.
