Your agreement with us
These Terms govern your online registration and attendance at an Event, the use of our website and associated websites, applications, and virtual learning platforms (collectively, the “Websites”). By registering for the Event, you agree that you have read and accepted these Terms and agree to be legally bound by them. If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms, please do not register, attend or participate in the Event.
Registering on behalf of another
If you are registering on behalf of another person, it is your obligation to make sure that the person attending is aware of these Terms and accepts them. By completing and submitting the registration form you are representing and warranting that you have made the person attending aware of these Terms and that they have accepted these Terms.
Admittance to events
We, in our sole discretion, and without any liability or obligation to refund, reserve the right to refuse admittance to or to eject from the Event anyone that we determine:
- is behaving in a manner that could disrupt, hinder or cause a nuisance to the Event or to the enjoyment of any other person or partner at the Event;
- represents a security or health & safety risk to the Event or to any person or partner; and/or
- fails to comply with, or is likely to fail to comply with, these Terms.
You agree to comply with all applicable laws in connection with your attendance at the Event.
Tickets and pricing
You will find details of attendee ticket pricing and fees on the websites. Ticket prices for an Event are correct at the time of publication.
We reserve the right to change the ticket prices at any time, but any changes will not affect tickets that have already been purchased.
A valid ticket entitles you to entry to the relevant Event as an Attendee but does not include any requirements associated – for physical events – with travel to or from the Event or any accommodation costs incurred, and – for any event – with Internet connection, and so on, and we shall have no liability for such costs or expenses.
When there is fee to attend an Event, such fee must be paid in full before the date of the course. We have the right to refuse an attendee entry to the presentation if the course fee is not paid before the date of the course.
Once a successful ticket transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic soft-copy via email to the email address nominated by the Attendee. For some ticket types it may be necessary to complete required information such as Attendee name or tax identification number before the tickets can be issued.
The ticket acts as a receipt for the transaction and can be used to gain entry to the Event listed on the ticket. The ticket reference number can be used to access the mobile app, in order to register at the Event.
We may from time to time offer certain discounted ticket promotions to encourage attendance at an Event. We are not obligated to offer any discounts for a particular Event and reserve the right to change or withdraw a discount offer at any time at our sole discretion.
Ticket name changes
If an Attendee finds that they cannot attend an Event they must notify us as soon as possible (and in any event no later than 7 days before the commencement of the Event) by email at email@example.com and request a name change on their ticket. We may at our absolute discretion allow the name change.
Changes or cancellation of an event
We try to make sure that the Event programmes, speakers, topics and venues are correct at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond our control may necessitate substitutions, alterations, postponements, or cancellations to the content, format, themes, name, performers, hosts, moderators, venue, or timing of an Event.
We will endeavour to notify you as soon as reasonably practicable of any substitutions, postponements, or changes by posting the updated information on this website.
In the unlikely event of postponement or cancellation of an Event, our total aggregate liability to you is limited to the refund of paid fees that remain after credit card and payment processing fees have been incurred and deducted, and we will not be liable to you for any expenditure, damage or loss incurred by you as a result of the cancellation or postponement.
Photography, audio, and video recording
Any use of photographic, audio, video or other recording equipment at an Event is strictly prohibited unless it is approved by us in advance.
By attending the Event you acknowledge and agree that the Event (or any part of it) may be photographed or recorded by us or our partners. You agree to permit us, or any third party licensed by us, to use, distribute, broadcast, or otherwise globally disseminate your likeness, name, voice and words in perpetuity in television, radio, film, newspapers, magazines and other media now available and hereafter developed, both before, during and any time after the Event, and in any form, without any further approval from you or any payment to you. This grant includes, but is not limited to, the right to edit the media, the right to use the media (alone or together with other information), and the right to allow others to use or distribute the media.
Your attendance at an event
You are responsible for advising us at the time of making your booking regarding any special access requirements you require at the Event.
You are responsible for arranging your own appropriate insurance cover in connection with your attendance or exhibition at an Event. We and our related companies will not be liable for any injury or damage to any person or to any real or personal property howsoever caused (except for death or personal injury as a result of our negligence or for any other type of liability that cannot by law be excluded or limited).
Refund and cancellation
Your ticket remains our property and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission to an Event may be refused at any time upon a refund of the printed registration price.
If you are eligible under applicable law to avail of a right to cancel your purchase of a ticket within 14 days without giving any reason and to receive a reimbursement of payments, you need to notify us in writing of your decision to cancel your Events ticket within 14 days of the day the contract for distance selling was concluded. The refund will be made in the same form as the original payment was received (for example, a credit card payment will refund to same credit card account number).
All purchases of Event tickets are non-refundable in their entirety after the end of this 14 day ‘cooling off’ period. You acknowledge that all refunds may be subject to deduction of a £10, €10 or $10 transaction fee or as otherwise advised (depending on the currency of your original transaction).
The tickets you purchase are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be resold under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition.
Reselling or otherwise transferring your ticket, not in accordance with the Terms, will void the ticket and the ticket holder will not gain entry into the Event. Where there has been any resale or attempted resale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), we reserve the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect.
We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket re-selling or a ticket broker.
Visa requirements (Offline Events)
It is your sole responsibility to take care of visa requirements. If you require an entry visa to attend, volunteer or exhibit at the Event, you must allow sufficient time for the visa application procedure.
In the event you are not granted a visa, we are under no obligation to refund your ticket unless you are eligible under applicable law to avail of a right to cancel your purchase of a ticket within 14 days of the day the contract for distance selling was concluded.
Intellectual property rights
All intellectual property rights in and to the Event, the Event content, and all materials distributed at or in connection with the Event are owned by us, our related companies, and/or the Event sponsors or speakers attending the Event. You must not reproduce or allow anyone one to reproduce trademarks or materials distributed by or on behalf of us at an Event for any reason, without our prior written permission.
Nothing in these Terms shall vest in you any legal or beneficial right in or to any intellectual property rights owned or used under licence by us or our related companies or grant to you any right or licence to any other intellectual property rights of us or our related companies. All such intellectual property rights shall remain the exclusive property of us and our related companies.
It is strictly forbidden for any company, organisation, or person to attempt to host or organise an event in conjunction with, contiguous to or purporting to be related to an Event or its affiliates without the express prior permission and cooperation of us. We reserve their right to take such action (legal or otherwise), including a claim for damages as we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate in the circumstances.
We are making the Websites and Events available “as is” without warranty of any kind. You assume the risk of any and all damage or loss from use of, or inability to use, the Websites, Events, services provided by us and by any partner, sponsor, and speaker, and any related material.
To the extent permitted by the applicable law, we disclaim all warranties or conditions, either express or implied, or any part of them in respect of any aspect of an Event or any related materials. You acknowledge and agree that in accepting these Terms you have not relied on any representation or warranty that is not expressly included in these Terms and you agree that you shall have no remedy in respect of any misrepresentation which has not become a part of these Terms.
Limitation of liability
You acknowledge and agree that views expressed by speakers at or in connection with an Event are their own and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any advice given or views expressed during or in connection with an Event.
Materials shared or distributed at or in connection with an Event are intended for information purposes only and should not be relied upon by you or others. We and our related companies do not provide any guarantees, conditions or warranties that the materials are complete or accurate and do not accept any responsibility or liability for reliance by you or any person on any aspect of the Event and/or any information provided at the Event.
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law:
we and our related companies shall not be liable to you whether in contract, tort (including for negligence), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise for any for any loss of profits; loss of sales or business; loss of agreements or contracts; loss of anticipated savings; loss of income; loss of opportunity; loss of or damage to goodwill; loss of use or corruption of software, data or information; and/or similar losses or pure economic loss, or for any indirect or consequential loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses however arising under or in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the Terms, even if we had been advised of the possibility of same in advance; and
subject to paragraph above, our total aggregate liability in contract, tort (including negligence), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the Terms is limited to the total amount paid by you to us for your ticket to attend the Event, after the payment of any processing fees or bank charges applicable.
Nothing in these Terms purports to exclude or limit liability for any fraudulent statement or act or in respect of any liability that cannot excluded or limited under applicable law.
We have no control over, and no liability for any third-party websites or materials. We work with a number of partners and affiliates whose Internet sites may be linked with our Websites and Events. Because we have no control over the content and performance of these partner and affiliate sites, we make no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of the information provided by such sites, and we assume no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful content that may reside on those sites. Similarly, from time to time in connection with your use of the Websites, you may have access to content items (including, but not limited to, websites) that are owned by third parties. You acknowledge and agree that we make no guarantees about, and assumes no responsibility for, the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of this third-party content, and that, unless expressly provided otherwise, these Terms shall govern your use of any and all third party content.
We may receive a commission when you purchase a product or service mentioned by the Websites or the Events.
We only promote those products or services that I have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you. In fact, we also ask any speakers and partners to offer special deals or conditions to you and to all the other attendees.
Our community has grown so big that it’s very difficult to list every affiliate agreement we have. Please assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that we will receive compensation from just to be safe. Having said that, we introduce many products and services where we make no commission just because they provide added value to you and to all the other attendees.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us, our related companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, joint ventures, third-party service providers, and our respective employees, contractors, agents, officers, and directors harmless from all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including legal fees, that arise out of or are related to any breach of the Terms by you or any other liabilities incurred by us arising out of your attendance or participation at an Event.
We are not liable if an Event is, in whole or in part, cancelled, rescheduled or postponed, or for any failure or delay to perform our obligations under these Terms, if such event results from anything beyond our reasonable control (for example, natural disasters, flood, fire, acts of terror, war, labour strike, extreme weather malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, or mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation, or any other emergency) or anything else that renders performance of an Event, in whole or in part, impracticable, illegal or impossible.
Governing law and jurisdiction
This interpretation, formation, and operation of the Terms and all non-contractual obligations arising from or connected with them shall be governed by and construed in accordance with, and all disputes between the parties arising out of or in any way relating to the Terms or any disputes between the parties in any way connected with the subject matter of these Terms (whether contractual or non-contractual) shall be governed by, the laws of England and Wales.
Each of the parties submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in England and Wales.
Nothing contained in the Terms shall limit our right to bring enforcement proceedings in another jurisdiction or to seek interim, protective or provisional relief in the courts of another jurisdiction.
If a court with jurisdiction over these Terms finds that any part of these Terms is wholly or partly unenforceable, you and us agree that where possible, the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and us agree that the court should not have regard to that unenforceable part but still enforce the rest of these Terms.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms or we do not act or delay in acting to in exercise a right or remedy provided by these Terms that does not mean we have waived our rights or remedies against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with your obligations.
These Terms are personal to you. You agree not to assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without receiving our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer these Terms without your consent by providing you with notice.
You and us agree that no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind us in any respect.
You agree that the only way you can provide us with a legal notice is at the following address: Expanse Summit, Akita Ventures Ltd, 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, WC1N 3AX, United Kingdom.
To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of the Terms is binding, and any translations are for convenience only.

headings are for reference purposes only and do not form part of the Terms;
the singular includes the plural and vice versa; and
“includes”, “including”, “for example”, “such as” and similar terms are not words of limitation.
If you are a consumer, nothing in these Terms excludes any of your applicable consumer or other statutory legal rights that cannot be waived.
