The IBA is unable to process group registrations or registrations supplied through an agency. Registration, payment, and all conference correspondence must be made directly with the registered delegate and not via a third party. Should we receive a conference registration and/or payment from a third party, the registration will not be processed, and the funds will be returned automatically to the bank they originated from, with any applicable charges deducted.
Any cancellation must be received in writing at the IBA office by Tuesday 18 October in order for fees to be refunded. A 15 per cent administration charge will be deducted for conference cancellations, including any social functions and Guest costs.
Note: Cancellation terms and conditions apply upon submission of registration. Please note that NO exception will be made to this policy. Should you have difficulties in obtaining your visa and are not able to attend the conference, this cancellation policy will still apply.
Refunds will only be made via the payment method they were originally sent, if a payment is refunded via bank transfer it will also be subject to any applicable bank charges. Refunds will be made minus any monies owed to the IBA.
If you have made an accommodation booking, either through our accommodation agent Judy Lane ICS or booked independently, you are responsible for cancelling this separately. The IBA takes no responsibility for any financial penalties you may incur.
After Tuesday 18 October, no refunds can be made; however, your registration fee can be transferred to a substitute delegate employed within your law firm/company. Only one transfer/substitute per registration is permitted. If you cancel your registration after the deadline and do not transfer to a colleague, any social function places you have purchased will automatically be returned to be resold and cannot be claimed at a later stage by another delegate. Successful resales will be refunded, less an administration charge of 15 per cent from the London office after the conference.
After Tuesday 18 October it is only possible to arrange a delegate transfer on-site at the IBA Registration Desk and the substitute delegate from the same law firm / company must provide written permission for the transfer from the original delegate. Only one transfer/substitute per registration is permitted and the entire registration, including any social function bookings, will be transferred to the new delegate. If the original delegate is an IBA member and registered at the IBA member registration fee rate then the substitute delegate must be an IBA member, become an IBA member or pay the difference in registration fee rates.
Provided you have cancelled your registration to attend an IBA conference in accordance with the terms of the ‘cancellation of registration’ clause above, you must then confirm to us in writing by the 18 October, including the necessary details to enable any reimbursement owed to you to be paid. Refunds will be made via the method of payment used. Credit card refunds are instant and should appear on your statement shortly after the cancellation is processed. Refunds via bank transfer are made manually and will take longer to process. We regret that no refunds will be made after the date that is one year (12 calendar months) after the date of the relevant conference.
All name badges (both delegates and guests) will display a barcode. Badges operate in a similar way to e-tickets and will be scanned for delegates and guests before entry into all IBA official functions. To gain entry to a social function, delegates and guests must wear their badge and have previously purchased a place(s) for the event. We do not issue paper tickets for social functions.
To transfer a social function booking to another delegate, you must visit the IBA Registration Desk and supply full details of the delegate (name, organisation, IBA membership number) to whom the transfer is to be made. As entry to social functions is by barcode only, transfer of bookings cannot be made at the social function venue and must be made at the IBA Registration Desk prior to the social function.
