Terms and Conditions of Unwired Ventures Limited (“the Company”) comprised of WORKTECH Events (“Events”) and WORKTECH ACADEMY (“Academy”)
By registering for the event, confirming a sponsorship or exhibition proposal, signing up to Academy membership, a whitepaper or report you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. The contents of this document are strictly private and confidential.
Full and final settlement of the cost or fee is to be paid within 30 days of the invoice date.
Fees, costs or prices
Fees, costs or prices quoted are provided as against the specific facts referred to on the quote or proposal and will be withdrawn automatically at the expiry of 28 days from their date of issue. The quotes are for the addressee only and cannot be used or relied upon by any third party. Fees quoted exclude all out-of-pocket disbursements.
Fees for Events and Academy are correct at the time of publication. The Company reserves the right to change the Fees at any time, but changes will not affect registrations/memberships/sponsorships which have already been confirmed by The Company. You acknowledge that The Company cannot guarantee places/sponsorship held on a provisional basis and that places may sell out. Where the balance of any Fee is to be settled by credit card, a surcharge of 3% may be applied. Overdue invoices may be subject to interest in accordance with The Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
All quoted fees, costs and prices exclude VAT or other local sales taxes (where applicable). Under VAT regulations, Attendees from all countries are required to pay VAT at the applicable rate on all Events taking place in the United Kingdom. For Events in other countries, Attendees are required to pay any VAT, excise duty or other sales tax which is applicable.
The Fees do not include travel to or from the Event or any accommodation costs incurred.
Sponsorship and Exhibition
Full and final settlement of the sponsorship or exhibition cost is to be paid in accordance with the invoice term to secure entry and marketing at or relating to the Event. In the event of any sponsorship or exhibition costs being outstanding on the opening day of the Event, the Company may refuse entry to the Event until a credit card has been provided as a guarantee for the full invoice value. Credit card details will typically be held for 14 days before being charged.
The company reserves the right to postpone and/or amend events, event times, venues and dates at short notice. This includes speakers, content, and timing of the programmes. Where events are postponed, sponsorship and exhibition packages will be automatically transferred to an alternative date at no additional cost. Where the alternative date is not suitable, sponsors and exhibitors will be issued with a voucher for their package that can be used against a future event. Automatic transfers and vouchers will be valid for 2 years from the date of the original event. Automatic transfer applies immediately with no requirement that an amended contract be issued. Should sponsors require an amended contract to reflect the date change, they should contact their account holder within 10 working days of communication of the transfer. Sponsors will be advised of changes within 5 working days of decision to amend, postpone and/or cancel.
Delegate bookings for events
Registration for the event and receipt of written confirmation is an offer from the Company to attend and conformation will be sent to you using the contact details you provided at the time of registration. All discounts can only be applied at the time of registration and are subject to the Company’s approval. Prices for each event are correct at the time of publication and the Company reserves the right to change prices at any time but changes will not affect registrations that have already been confirmed by the Company.
Whilst our programmes are correct at the time of going to press, in certain circumstances it may be necessary for UnWired to alter the content, format, venue or timing of an Event. The company reserves the right to postpone and/or amend events, event times and dates at short notice. This includes speakers, content, venue and timing of the programmes. All Attendees will be notified of such changes prior to the Event.
Delegates can request a refund or credit note for delegate tickets in writing no less that 60 days before the event date. Refunds will be given less an administration fee of 25% of the ticket price plus VAT (if applicable). No refunds will be given after this date. A delegate can transfer their ticket to a colleague at no additional cost provided the request is received 5 working days before the event. Where events are postponed, all delegate tickets will be transferred to the new date at no cost. No refunds will be made for postponed events, but where the new date is unsuitable, a credit for the fee or cost paid can be issued for use against a future event. Where events are cancelled, all delegates will receive a credit for 100% of the contract fee paid. Such a credit can be issued for use against a future event. Credits remain valid for 2 years from the date of the original event.
All enquiries should be sent to email@example.com marked for the attention of Customer Service and must be received by the Company.

The Client shall endeavour to expeditiously provide the Company with such information and access to such facilities and personnel as the Company shall require in order to efficiently provide the service. The Client shall make such decisions and provide such instructions as the Company shall require and at the time that the Company requires to enable the Company to provide the Services. The Client acknowledges that the Company’s ability to provide the Services and to meet any timeframe agreed for the provision of the Services is dependent on the Client providing such information, access and decisions and instructions at the times required by the Company.

Both parties shall indemnify and keep the other party indemnified from and against all claims, damages, losses, costs (including all reasonable legal costs), expenses, demands or liabilities arising out of any claim that the other party’s use of the indemnifying party’s intellectual property rights in accordance with the Agreement infringes any intellectual property rights of any third party.
Materials distributed by or on behalf of The Company at a Physical Event may not be reproduced without The Companies permission.
The Company will give notice in writing as soon as possible of any situation arising which makes it impractical to carry out this agreement for reasons beyond the control of the Company and the Company shall not be liable or deemed to be in breach of any agreement by reason of any delay in performing any of the Company’s obligations in relation to the work arising as a result of such situation.
Work carried out and/or costs incurred upon client instruction for an incomplete project, report or whitepaper shall be charged in proportion to the work completed prior to the receipt of instruction to discontinue. Any non-recoverable costs will be charged in full.
Without prejudice to any other remedy the Company shall be entitled to charge for all fees, costs or expenses incurred in respect of the work undertaken to the date of cancellation and any loss of profit arising by reason of the cancellation of such contract.
The Company and its employees, consultants, speakers and agents shall not in any way be held responsible for any losses, expenses or any claims arising out of reliance on the information conveyed through any verbal or written communication.

The Company does not accept responsibility for accident, injury or loss or damage to persons or property incurred at any event or any costs incurred as a result of cancellation or postponement, howsoever arising, including but not limited to hotel costs, flight costs and/or other transfer costs associated with the event by a sponsor, exhibitor or delegate.
The Company shall be under no liability if it shall be unable to carry out any provision of the contract for any reason beyond their control including (without limiting the foregoing) Act of God, legislation, acts of terrorism or war, fire, flood, drought, venue damage or cancellation, failure of power supply, lock-out, strike, epidemic, disease or public health alert, government regulations or action, or other action taken by employees in contemplation or furtherance of a dispute or owing to any liability to procure materials for the performance of the contract. These terms shall apply in respect of any rearranged or rescheduled event organised by the Company.
In so far as any of these terms and conditions are considered to be unenforceable they will be deemed to be construed as varied (or deleted) to such extent so as to confer to the Company and its employees the maximum legal protection to which they would be entitled at law. If the Company is liable to you for any reason, the total liability to you in relation to the Event is limited to the amount of your fees or costs received by the Company.
The company shall not be liable for any failure of or delay in the performance of this agreement where such failure or delay is (a) beyond the reasonable control of a party, (b) materially affects the performance of any of its obligations under this agreement, and (c) could not reasonably have been foreseen or provided against. Any delay or non-performance shall not be deemed to be a breach of this agreement and no loss or damage shall be claimed by reason thereof. Where a Force Majeure event has or may have an adverse affect on the ability of the Company to hold the event at the planned venue or on the planned date, then the Company shall be entitled but not obliged to provide an alternative venue or reschedule the event. Any fees or costs received by the Company shall be automatically transferred to the rescheduled event and you shall not be entitled to object or have any right to claim any compensation in respect thereof.
