Delegate Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions apply between the person, firm, company or other entity specified on your booking form (“you” or “your”) and the organiser, Informa Markets BV, a company registered in The Netherlands (registration number 30076951) whose registered address is at De Entrée 73 – Alpha Tower, 1101 BH Amsterdam, Netherlands (“Informa Markets”) for delegate registrations for the Vitafoods Europe Summit and/or the Vitafoods Europe Conference as further described at [www.vitafoods.eu.com] and specified in the registration form (each an “Event“ and together the “Events”). Please read them carefully as they contain important information. By submitting your registration to attend the Event(s) (“your registration”) you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions. If you do not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, Informa Markets will be unable to accept your registration.

1. Your registration is an offer to Informa Markets to attend the Vitafoods Europe Summit, which is subject to Informa Markets 's acceptance in writing (which may include, without limitation, email). A binding contract (“Agreement”) between Informa Markets and you will only be formed when written confirmation of acceptance (“Confirmation” or “Confirmed”) is sent by Informa Markets to you (whether or not it is received) using the contact details you provided at the time of registration. You should contact Informa Markets if you have not received Confirmation within 5 days of your registration, but in any event if Confirmation is not sent within 14 days of Informa Markets receiving your registration, your registration will be deemed to be accepted unless Informa Markets notifies you otherwise. Informa Markets reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse to accept your registration.

 

2. You will pay Informa Markets the fees specified on your booking form for the Vitafoods Europe Summit (“your fees”). Payment of your fees must be received in full not later than 48 hours before the Vitafoods Europe Summit. If payment of your fees in full is not received before the Vitafoods Europe Summit, Informa Markets may (at its sole discretion) either require such payment as a condition of your entry to the Vitafoods Europe Summit or refuse you entry to the Vitafoods Europe Summit. No refunds of any proportion of your fees already paid (if any) will be made and any balance of your fees will remain due and payable where entry to the Vitafoods Europe Summit is refused under this Condition 2.

 

3. All discounts can only be applied at the time of registration and discounts cannot be combined. All discounts are subject to Informa Markets ’s written approval. Discounts for group registrations are only valid for a minimum of 3 delegates specified on your booking form. Group discounts cannot be combined in conjunction with any other offers or discount codes. If the number of delegates who actually attend the Vitafoods Europe Summit is (for any reason) less than the number specified on your booking form, then Informa Markets may (at its sole discretion) change the fees charged to reflect the number of delegates who actually attend the Vitafoods Europe Summit in line with Informa Markets ’s published prices then in force. Any additional sums payable to Informa Markets as a result shall be paid in line with Condition 2.

 

4. Prices for each Vitafoods Europe Summit are correct at the time of publication. Informa Markets reserves the right to change the prices at any time but changes will not affect registrations which have already been Confirmed by Informa Markets .

 

5. It is the intent of the parties that Informa will receive your fees net of all applicable taxes, including, without limitation, sales, VAT, service or withholding taxes (“Taxes”), all of which shall be paid solely by you. If and to the extent that any Taxes are levied upon, or found to be applicable to, the whole or any portion of your fees, the amount of your fees shall be increased by an amount necessary to compensate for the Taxes (including, without limitation, any amount necessary to “gross up” for Taxes levied on the increase itself).

 

6. You may cancel your registration in accordance with this Condition 6. All cancellations must be sent in writing to [email protected] at Informa Markets and must be received before Friday, 25 March 2022 to receive a refund of 50% of your fees (the other 50% of your fees remains payable). Informa Markets regrets that cancellations cannot be accepted after Friday, 25 March 2022. No refunds or other credits will be given in respect of attempted cancellations received after this date and the full amount of your fees remains payable. You acknowledge that the refund of 50% of your fees in accordance with this Condition 6 is your sole remedy in respect of any cancellation of your registration by you and all other liability is expressly excluded. Without limitation, Informa Markets regrets that refunds cannot be granted on the grounds of unsuccessful country visa applications into Switzerland.

Informa Markets may (at its sole discretion) change the format (including, without limitation, from a physical event to a virtual event and vice versa), speakers, participants, content, venue location, programme or any other aspect of the Vitafoods Europe Summit at any time and for any reason, whether or not due to a Force Majeure Event, in each case without liability.
