These Terms and Conditions apply to registrations with payments made via the ICIS website, or on completed registration forms received by ICIS with confirmed BACS payment to ICIS.

Definitions

The following definitions will apply in these terms and conditions, unless inconsistent with the context or otherwise specified:

ICIS acceptance of a booking brings into existence a legally binding contract. If ICIS does not receive a booking, or does not confirm a booking, the contract is not established. All communications relating to the contract must be set out as described below.

2. Cost

The costs payable for attending events are as set out on the ICIS website and on meeting programmes for individual events.
