Please note that no refunds will be paid for cancellations (for all or part of the event) made after 25th May 2017. This is because it would be too late to resell your place or adjust numbers for catering purposes after that time.
If you find yourself unable to attend after that time, you may send a replacement delegate. If the replacement does not have the same member privileges as you, she/he will be liable to pay the difference between your payment and what she/he would have paid to register.
