If the conference has to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control such as war, flood, nuclear contamination, pandemic/covid-19, earthquake, terrorist attack, etc, a full refund of delegate fees paid will be arranged.
HYBRID FORMAT: If the conference in-person attendee numbers have to be restricted due to covid-19 guidelines, we may be able to assign your ticket to attend in-person subject to availability. If you do not wish to attend the restricted attendee conference in-person or we do not have sufficient availability, we can assign your ticket to attend virtually and a refund of the surplus fees paid will be arranged. If you do not wish to attend in-person or virtually, a refund of delegate fees paid will be arranged subject to a 15% handling charge.
VIRTUAL FORMAT: If the conference has to be hosted virtually only, your ticket will automatically be assigned accordingly and a refund of the relevant surplus fees paid will be arranged. If you do not wish to attend virtually, a refund of delegate fees paid will be arranged subject to a 15% handling charge.
IF YOU DECIDE TO CANCEL: If you wish to cancel your attendance for any reason, we can accept cancellation requests in writing up to 72 hours before the event subject to a 15% handling charge. No refunds can be allocated to cancellations received after 72 hours pre event. In all instances, we can process substitution requests received in writing up to 24 hours pre event and no handling charges will apply. There are no exceptions to this policy.
In line with GDPR legislation, during online registration delegates are now asked to consent to Summit Focus collecting relevant registration details to receive conference and registration information related to the annual IACT conference. If you do NOT give consent, you will NOT receive conference details eg. speaker presentations, CPD point details, programme changes and updates, etc. Note the information we request during registration is legally required in order to record your attendance as well as to process your attendee fee (if relevant). This is the only reason for the data collection and it will NOT be used for any other purposes. The retention period will be 3 years (for our own year end accounting purposes also as well as to be able to provide you with any additional receipt requests). We will circulate your name, title and organisation only to other delegates and sponsors in the immediate days prior to the conference and not before. Note we will never share your contact details with any third parties. You have the right to request access to your data at any time, to have inaccuracies amended, to have your data erased, to object to direct marketing and/or restrict the use of your data by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to all requests within a maximum of 72 hours. You have a right of complaint to us at email@example.com at anytime in the unlikely event you are dissatisfied in relation to our implementation of your data. Note that your data will not be subject to any automated decision making and you can request the right to be forgotten at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org which we will activate within a maximum of 72 hours of receipt of your request.

So what is business casual you may well ask – see Gents Business Casual and Ladies Business Casual.
There are even more breakout sessions to choose from this year. These will be offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis on the day of the event.
