Delegate Updates on Terms and Conditions
The organisers reserve the right, from time to time, to inform delegates of any necessary changes in programming, or additional requirements relating to their safety and wellbeing, in the lead up to or during the event and which require acknowledgement and compliance from the delegate.
Delegates will be required to confirm that they have read, understood and accepted the following terms and conditions before submitting their completed registration.
COVID-19 POLICY: in addition to the Terms & Conditions below
Coronavirus/COVID-19: The safety and wellbeing of our participants remain our priority at all times. To ensure our participants are protected wherever possible, The MEETINGS SPACE Ltd will ensure that all relevant risk analyses and health and safety precautions are agreed with and actioned by all partners involved, with reference to the prevalent advice and guidelines from both the UK events industry and relevant governments. In our ever-changing world, we are in very close collaboration with all of our supplier partners. All partners are committed to creating safe, compliant and high-quality environments for The MEETINGS SPACE, within the prevailing relevant national and regional guidelines. This means that we are able to ensure an effective and enjoyable meetings and networking programme for all. A current Safety & Wellbeing plan is available from the organisers on request.
1. Review of Application
Acceptance of your registration will be confirmed in writing by email. The organisers reserve the right to decline your registration.
2. Your References
The organisers may check some or all of the references which you have supplied on the registration form. Should you have any queries regarding the checking process please contact the organisers to discuss.
3. Travel Companies with Inbound and Outbound MICE Business
All hosted delegates are accepted based on the quality of their current and potential outbound MICE business only. Companies who also have incoming business services, such as DMC services, agree that they will not promote this element of their business in any form to any delegate, either before, during or after the event: this applies either verbally, written or electronically.
4. Delegate Travel Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the delegate to ensure you are able to travel on the relevant dates with the necessary and valid travel documentation, and/or any vaccination or other requirements related to health and safety, which may be current at the time and relevant to the destination. The organisers reserve the right to implement additional safety requirements if necessary. Travel to and from your local airport is the responsibility of the delegate.
5. Travel Insurance
Travel insurance must be organised by delegates and is not covered by the organisers. It is strongly advisable to purchase travel insurance against cancellation for health or other unforeseen circumstances, including the Covid-19 virus. With regard to the current Covid-19 pandemic, it should be noted by all participants that The MEETINGS SPACE Ltd accepts no liability in respect of any illness arising in connection with Covid-19 or any consequential costs or damages. Delegates must ensure that they are adequately insured for any and all consequential costs which may arise relating to the virus. This includes any requirement to quarantine in the destination, or in their country of origin on return.
