Registrations

Registrations will be handled on a first-come-first-served basis. Registrations are for individuals (as named on event invoices and / or confirmations) and cannot be shared. Submission of a booking, either online, by mail, email or fax, constitutes an official and binding booking. Prices are shown in Australian Dollars and include GST. Visa and Mastercard are accepted in addition to EFT payments. (Please use a suitable reference for easy identification and allocation of your payment.) Accommodation costs are not included in the conference registration fee. It is the responsibility of the delegate to make their own accommodation booking. All accommodation requests are to be made directly with the venue.

Cancellations

LG Professionals WA understands that circumstances may arise which prevent a delegate from attending once registered. In that instance, LG Professionals WA policy is to accept a substitute. This must be arranged with the conference organisers in writing prior to the event. The deadline for delegate substitution is Friday 21 February 2020.
In the event that cancellation of the registration is made, LG Professionals WA will charge a 30% fee to meet administration costs for registrations cancelled more than 14 days prior to the conference. This will be applicable to all registrations regardless of whether or not a payment has been made to LG Professionals WA.
No refund can be made for cancellations less than 14 days prior to the conference. This will be applicable to all registrations regardless of whether or not a payment has been made to LG Professionals WA. 'No Shows' will be deemed a cancellation as per the points above, and will result in a full forfeiture of the full event fee.

LG Professionals WA uses the information you provide to administer your event experience. We will not disclose your personal data to a third party without your consent, except where required to do so by law. In registering for an event, delegates grant permission to LG Professionals WA, its agents and others working under its authority to take and have full and free use of video/photographs containing their image or likeness. It is understood these images may be used for promotion, news, on-line/multimedia/research and/or education purposes by LG Professionals WA.

General

LG Professionals WA expects conference delegates to behave professionally. Use of obscene language, abusive behaviour or threatening behaviour directed to any other conference delegate, organiser, LG Professionals WA staff, venue staff or corporate partner representative is not acceptable and may lead to a delegate being barred from one or more events. LG Professionals WA accepts no responsibility for the actions of others whilst under the influence of alcohol served at an event. It is also acknowledged by delegates that it is unlawful for any person under the age of 18 years old to consume alcoholic beverages. LG Professionals WA accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to personal property that is brought to an event.  A delegate will be responsible for any loss, damage or injury incurred as a result of a contract entered into with LG Professionals WA, advice sought or obtained from LG Professionals WA and/or any corporate partner or any loss or damage to property whilst at the venue unless caused by negligence of LG Professionals WA.

Registration fees do not include insurance of any kind. LG Professionals WA recommends that you take out your own general travel insurance. It is suggested that the insurance policy should also cover loss of fees/deposit, airfares, accommodation charges, medical expenses, loss or damage to property whilst attending an event.  The insurance should cover loss arising from the cancellation of the event by the organisers or your inability to attend due to any reason whatsoever. No responsibility is taken by LG Professionals WA for any person not holding insurance.
