Participation in activities
The number of places for participants is limited; unless stated differently, registrations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.

The fee applicable to each activity is clearly indicated on the registration form. Unless stated differently on the registration form, the fee includes participation in the activity, lunches and beverages during the activity, documentation and participation in the social evening event (if applicable).

Travel and accommodation costs are at the expense of the participant or his/her administration.

Pre-payment of the fee is a condition for participation in an activity. Prior to the activity each participant will receive an invoice which can be paid by bank transfer or by credit card.

In most cases, EIPA will assist you in making your hotel booking. Participants need to pay the hotel directly and personally. Costs resulting from cancellation or "no-show" are also at the participants' expense.

General Terms and Conditions
For the General Terms and Conditions for the provision  of services by EIPA, please check the separate document.

Cancellation policy
For administrative reasons you will be charged €150 for cancellations received within 15 days before the activity begins. There is no charge for qualified substitute participants.

EIPA reserves the right to cancel the activity up to 2 weeks before the starting date. In that case, registration fees received will be fully reimbursed. EIPA accepts no responsibility for any costs incurred (travel, accommodation, etc.).

The mention of a speaker's name in the programme does not commit EIPA. In the event that an announced speaker does not appear, EIPA will do its utmost to find a suitable replacement.
