7.1 You will pay us the Fees on the terms specified in the Booking Contract. All Fees are exclusive of applicable taxes (e.g. VAT or sales tax) and you shall pay a sum equal to the amount of VAT, sales or such equivalent tax chargeable, in addition to the Fees.
7.2 You shall make all payments of the Fees to the Organiser without any deduction or withholding for or on account of tax (a Tax Deduction), unless a Tax Deduction is required by law. If a Tax Deduction is required by law to be made by you, the amount of Fees due from you shall be increased to an amount which (after making any Tax Deduction) leaves an amount equal to the Fees which would have been due if no Tax Deduction had been required.
7.3 We reserve the right to change the price of the Event at any time, but such changes will not affect the Fees agreed in a Booking Contract. All discounts can only be applied at the time of registration for the Event and discounts cannot be combined. All discounts are subject to our approval and, to the extent applicable, shall be reflected in the Booking Contract. Discounts for group registrations are only valid for the number of Delegates specified on the Booking Contract. If the number of Delegates that actually attend the Event is (for any reason) less than the number specified in the Booking Contract, then we may (in our sole discretion) change the Fees payable by you to reflect the number of Delegates that actually attend the Event in line with our published prices then in force. For the avoidance of doubt, we shall not at any time during the Term, accept any request to apply discounts or promotions on the amount of Fees stated in the Booking Contract retrospectively, whether or not you have already paid the Fees.
7.4 In the event you fail to pay any part of the Fees by the relevant due date specified in the Booking Contract, we may (without prejudice to any other rights we may have):
(a) charge you interest on any amounts which are due and unpaid, at a rate per year of 2% above the then current Barclays Bank plc’s base rate, calculated daily from the due date until the date of payment; and/or
(b) require such payment as a condition of your Delegate's entry to the Event or refuse their entry to, or block them from accessing, the Event (whether physical or virtual).
For the avoidance of doubt, if you do not pay the full amount of the Fees by the relevant due date and as a result your Delegate is refused entry to the Event pursuant to sub-clause (b) above, we will not refund you for any proportion of the Fees already paid, and the balance of your Fees will remain due and payable (with interest accruing on such amount until the date of payment).
8.Changes to the Event
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change the format, content or timing of the Event programme, the identity of any speakers or exhibitors, the hosting medium, virtual location or Venue for any reason and without liability to you, provided that the Event, as altered, is similar to the Event as originally advertised. For the avoidance of doubt, in these circumstances, the Fees shall remain payable in full to the extent not already paid, and we will not refund you for any proportion of the Fees or otherwise be held liable for any other costs or expenses incurred by you in connection with the Event.
9. Cancellation by the Client
You must give the Organiser Contact prior written notice (including by email) if you wish to cancel your registration to attend the Event (Client Cancellation Notice). Depending on the date of our receipt of the Client Cancellation Notice, and provided you have not already paid the relevant Fees pursuant to Clause 7, you must pay to us a charge equal to the amount of Fees due and payable by you as at the date of receipt of the Client Cancellation Notice (and for the avoidance of doubt any amounts paid prior to such date, such as any deposit or pre-paid charges, shall not be refundable).
10. Postponement or cancellation by the Organiser
10.1 If the Event is wholly virtual:

(b) we may postpone the Event provided that the Event takes place within the period of six (6) months following the original Event date. For the avoidance of doubt, any postponement by us pursuant to this Clause 10.1 shall not entitle you to cancel your participation in the Event, or make any claim for refunds or otherwise against us.
(c) if we cancel the Event pursuant to this Clause 10.1, we shall issue you with a full refund or a credit note to the value of all Fees paid by you. You acknowledge that such refund or a credit note is your exclusive remedy in the event of cancellation by us.

(a) we reserve the right to postpone or cancel the Event pursuant to this Clause 10.2 at any time and for any reason during the Term and will provide you with notice of any such postponement or cancellation in writing (including by email) as soon as is reasonably practicable in advance of the Event.
(b) if we:

11.2 If a Force Majeure Event occurs (or in our opinion, acting in good faith, is likely to occur) and results (or is likely to result) in the Event being unable to take place as contemplated by these T&C, we may, in our sole discretion:
(a) change the timing, date, Venue, virtual location or hosting medium of the Event or the Event Platform, provided that the Event, as altered, is similar to the Event as originally advertised. For the avoidance of doubt, if we exercise our right to change the Event pursuant to this Clause 11.2(a), this shall not entitle you to cancel your participation in the Event, or make any claim for refunds or otherwise against us. In such circumstances, these T&C shall apply in respect of the rearranged or rescheduled event organised by us pursuant to this Clause; or
(b) cancel the Event, in which case we will issue you with a full refund, or a credit note to the value of all Fees paid by you. You acknowledge that such refund or a credit note is your exclusive remedy in the event of cancellation by us, and in no event shall we be liable for any loss, delay, damage or other liability incurred by you in connection with our cancellation of the Event, howsoever arising, including but not limited to your accommodation and travel costs.
