Terms & Conditions

Registration and Confirmation
Registration is subject to capacity limitations. Registration must (should) include the name of any accompanying person to ensure their inclusion into the planning of the social programme. Upon receipt of registration invoice or confirmation, registration is considered official and effectual.  This document is a valid VAT invoice, which may be submitted to the local tax and revenue office for tax purposes.

Invoicing and Due Date for Fees
All fees are due upon receipt of the registration invoice or confirmation form. Transfer payments must include the name of the participant and the invoice number, otherwise they will not be accepted. All major credit cards are accepted.

Scope of Services
Event fees and day tickets include participation in the scientific programme only. Included in this fee are programme book, name tags and a certificate of attendance. These items are generally handed out at the venue. Additional fees for the social programme will apply.

Cancellations, Changes, Refunds
Cancellations can be made in written form only and will only be accepted if received by 15 May 2016.  A cancellation fee of C$25.00 will apply. The same terms apply for cancellations of the social programme, however no cancellation fee will be charged.  Any cancellations after this date or no-shows at the event are not eligible for a refund and the full fee in accordance to the registration invoice or confirmation will be due.

In this case, all paid fees will be fully refunded.

Force Majeure, Disclaimer
Schumpeter Conference Canada is responsible for all changes to individual parts of the event. Claims for damages are excluded if the staging of the event or individual components are hampered or prevented by unexpected political or economic events or generally by force majeure or by the cancellation of speakers or if similar changes are required.
