Event terms and conditions
ICAEW's terms and conditions for events are set out in full below. Terms and conditions of local group and society events may differ to those mentioned here. Please refer to your booking conditions for details.
Attending the event
It may be necessary for reasons beyond our control to change the content and timing of the programme, the speakers, the date or the venue at any time prior to the event date.
Course papers/delegate pack
In most circumstances, course papers will be issued on the day of the event. This documentation is made available only to those attending the event. Course papers and delegate packs are provided for the sole use of the delegate and may not be reproduced whether in whole or part, shared or distributed by any method whatsoever without prior permission of the copyright owner. External speakers alone are responsible for the content of their respective sessions. It is the policy of ICAEW to give the fullest freedom to contributors/speakers to express their opinions. The opinions expressed by the speakers do not necessarily represent the views of ICAEW. ICAEW speakers will make every effort to ensure the validity and accuracy of the information they provide.
If your booking is received less than seven days before the event, you may not get a copy of the course papers/delegate pack on the day.
ICAEW accepts no liability if a delegate is unable to attend an event due to adverse weather conditions or any travel disruption.
ICAEW makes every effort to negotiate free parking for delegates at venues outside of London. However, we reserve the right to use venues which may incur a car parking charge.
Filming and sound recording
ICAEW reserves the right to film, record or photograph any of the speakers at an event for post event purposes. Delegates are advised that this may result in incidental inclusion of delegates within any recording or photographs.
After the event
Following the event, delegates should expect to receive an email asking them to complete a feedback form online. We would ask that this is completed and returned to us within seven days to allow ICAEW to continue to improve and tailor future events more closely to your requirements.
