Refund and Cancellation Policy

All purchases of tickets for online conferences and events are non-refundable in their entirety. Your ticket remains the property of HGI and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission refused at any time. In the unlikely event of cancellation of a conference or event the liability of the HGI is limited to the share of paid registration fees that remains after credit card and payment processing fees have been incurred and deducted.

It is strictly forbidden for any company, organisation or attendee to attempt to host or organise any event in conjunction with, contiguous to or purporting to be related to the HGI or its affiliates without the express prior permission and co-operation of the HGI. In the event of breach of these terms any tickets purchased by the organiser and their affiliates will be rendered null and void. HGI reserves the right to take such legal action including a claim for damages as may be appropriate.

The tickets purchased are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be re-sold or transferred for commercial gain under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition (unless approved by the HGI’s Directors). Where there has been any re-sale or attempted re-sale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), we reserve the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect.

We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket broker or tout.

HGI reserves the right to refuse admission to any event or conference for any behaviour, which it deems unacceptable, or for breach of the terms and conditions.

Event cancellation, postponement and substitution policy

The HGI is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation or postponement of an event. HGI shall assume no liability whatsoever in the circumstances that an event is cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to a fortuitous event, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of an event impracticable, illegal or impossible. For purposes of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include, but not be limited to: war, fire, labour strike, extreme weather or other emergency as it occurs.

Please note that while speakers and topics are confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. As such, HGI reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or topics if necessary without any liability to you whatsoever. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible.

Delivery Policy

Once a successful purchase transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic soft-copy via email to the email address nominated by the purchaser. For some ticket types it may be necessary to complete required information – such as attendee name – before the tickets can be issued. The ticket acts as a receipt for the transaction and can be used to redeem entry at the event listed on the ticket. UK law governs these terms and conditions and any dispute are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the UK Courts.
