1. Definitions

Throughout these Terms, the following definitions shall apply:

  • IVAM means IVAM Service GmbH
  • Participant(s) means delegates, exhibitors and sponsors attending or otherwise participating in or at an event
  • Booking(s) means all bookings, acceptances, confirmations and other contracts made by, or on behalf of, a customer with IVAM to attend, exhibit at and/or sponsor an event
  • Delegate(s) means individuals attending an event (whether in a personal or corporate capacity)

  • Sponsor(s) means those customers who sponsor an event
  • Customer(s) means the person, firm, company or organisation booking to attend, exhibit at and/or sponsor an event.

2. Our Agreement

These terms and conditions apply to bookings made by the customer.

The person completing the booking form or other related document confirms that he/she has the authority to do so on behalf of the customer.

Bookings placed shall constitute a contract with IVAM once the customer receives confirmation of booking (via email or an invoice being raised by IVAM) regardless of whether payment has already been made or remains outstanding.

3. Payment terms

Depending on the event, payments can be made by credit card or on invoice. In the case of payment where an invoice is issued payment is due within 14 days of the date of the invoice.

Any questions or disputes related to an invoice must be raised with IVAM, in writing, within 14 days from the date of the invoice in dispute.

4. Booking confirmation

Depending on the event, participants, exhibitors or sponsors can book online through our partner pretix or book directly with IVAM. With online bookings, delegates will receive a system-generated receipt. With direct bookings, the customer will receive an invoice, which is then returned as a receipt after confirmation of payment. The receipt is the formal confirmation of booking.

5. Delegate amendments

A Delegate place is transferrable between members of the same company or institution. However, a delegate who is offered a discount may only transfer the delegate place to someone who is also eligible for the same discount.

6. Cancellations

The customer has the right to cancel the booking at any time before the day of the event. Cancellation of booking requests should be made in writing and may result in a partial refund to cover our administrative costs.

6.1 Delegate cancellations

If a cancellation of delegate booking is received by IVAM more than three months before the date of the event the customer shall pay to IVAM 50% of the full amount payable in respect of that booking.

If a cancellation of delegate booking is received by IVAM less than three months before the date of the event the customer shall pay to IVAM the full amount payable in respect of that booking.

Any part of the full amount payable in respect of that booking that remains unpaid shall remain payable and shall be paid by the customer to IVAM in full. If the customer has paid more than the full amount payable in respect of that booking the excess shall be refunded.

6.2 Exhibitor cancellations

If a cancellation of exhibitor booking is received by IVAM more than six months before the date of the event the customer shall pay to IVAM 50% of the full amount payable in respect of that booking.

If a cancellation of exhibitor booking is received by IVAM less than six months before the date of the event the customer shall pay to IVAM the full amount payable in respect of that booking.

Any part of the full amount payable in respect of that booking that remains unpaid shall remain payable and shall be paid by the customer to IVAM in full. If the customer has paid more than the full amount payable in respect of that booking the excess shall be refunded.

These deadlines may vary for special trade fairs - see attachment.

6.3 Sponsor cancellations

Sponsor bookings are non-refundable.
