Terms and Conditions of Registration and Sale

Terms and conditions of registration and ticket / pass sale for Aviation Carbon Events

a) The words “registration” and “order” are used interchangeably throughout our website, and their meaning is equivalent. More specifically, the registration process results in a confirmed order to attend the event, and an entry pass is sent by email to the person ordering it, and which needs to be presented (in electronic or printed format) at the event registration desk as proof of entitlement of entry.

b) When you register to attend an event organised by Aviation Carbon Events (ACE), we have to commit to, and pay for, your place at the venue, and therefore we incur direct significant costs for each registered delegate. Therefore, when you register to attend an Aviation Carbon event we must consider your registration as binding, even if you may have benefited from one of our limited free offers. Nevertheless, we do have a cancellation policy which is explained further down this page.

c) Delegate name badges which are provided at the registration desk must be worn and fully visible to other delegates and staff at all times. This is for security reasons as well as the ability to quickly identify people.

1. Registration Categories:

i) Airlines & Aircraft Operators
This category is only for EMPLOYEES of airlines, cargo and business jet fleet operators.

i) For the avoidance of any doubt, the applicable price of a ticket (entry pass) to an Aviation Carbon event at any time is the one displayed in our “Eventzilla” registration system at any given moment whilst registration is open. We endeavour to update all references to prices elsewhere on our websites and other communications, however, we cannot guarantee that they are always updated due the time required to update websites and delays in transmitting information across the worldwide internet.

ii) All prices shown are exclusive of UK VAT (value added tax) which shall be added during the registration and payment process. Any discounts applied are deducted from the price net of VAT as shown in the Eventzilla system. After the discount is applied, VAT shall then be applied to the sale. You may be able to apply to reclaim VAT incurred from your local tax authority, however, we cannot enter into any discussions with you concerning VAT payment nor refunds.

iii) The organisers reserve the right to increase or decrease ticket prices, and any discount rates, or offers, or change ticket types and names, at any time and without notice and without any liability to refund in any proportion any amount in respect of any registration already made.
