Dinner tickets are sold separately and are priced 75 UK Pounds per ticket.
(For participants paying the dinner and registration fee at the same time - the receipt will
be itemised. If you require a non-itemised receipt please indicate this on your registration form.)
Please note that it is the responsibility of all participants to take out full insurance to cover all expenses, including
registration fee, in the event that they are unable to travel for whatever reason.
Registered participants who fail to collect their proceedings during the conference
will only be sent the data-stick part of the proceedings by standard airmail.
Payment options: Credit card payment (VISA or Mastercard only) is the preferred option.
A Bankers Draft (drawn on a UK bank) or a UK Bank Cheque (made payable to Civil-Comp Ltd) are also allowed
if a credit card is not available. We cannot accept payment at the conference.
Credit Card Payments:
Once you have completed the registration form in full and indicated that you will pay by credit card then a secure link for you to pay by credit card will be emailed to you. Do NOT email us your credit card details we cannot accept unsecure payments.
Bank transfers: We do NOT recommend the use of bank transfers. A bank transfer handling charge of 40 UK Pounds will be added if you intend
to pay by bank transfer. You must request a pro-forma invoice first by completing the registration form and ticking
the box "invoice before payment". We will then send
you a pro-forma invoice with our bank details. Our bank details have changed from previous years.
Please note that a bank transfer must be made in full without
any deductions for bank charges (neither domestic nor foreign charges). Upon receipt of your transfer we will
send you a full invoice as confirmation of
your registration. We cannot issue full invoices before payment. Please note that bank transfers often
take a very long time. If you choose to
pay a particular fee level that is time-restricted your bank transfer
must reach our accounts before the date specified above. Should it reach our bank after this date, we will request that you
pay the difference.
All amounts are in UK Pound Sterling. We cannot accept payments in any other currency.
Cancellation policy: Prior to 1st January 2016 cancellation refunds will be paid less a charge of
20%. After 1st January 2016 no refunds will be given.
To proceed with your registration please complete the registration form
and fax or email a scan of the form to us. If you are paying by credit card a
secure payment link will be emailed to you - to complete your registration your payment must be complete.
Payments are much quicker and can be more easily confirmed if you pay using a credit card (our preferred payment option).
Please note: You cannot be registered to participate in the conference until your payment has been received and confirmed.
