I am not yet sure if I can definitely attend the conference. Is it okay for me to register now and then cancel later, or just not turn up at the conference?

No, if you are not sure that you can attend, do not register at this stage. Cancellation terms and conditions apply to your registration from the moment that you submit your signed registration form to us, as we will then be holding a place at the conference specifically for you. The conference organisers incur prepaid costs for each place booked, for example for your conference catering and for conference materials, regardless of whether you ultimately attend or not, which is the reason for the cancellation charge. In addition if you book a place, and the conference becomes fully booked, you will be preventing someone else from attending the conference. Please refer to the Registration Informationsection of the conference website for the specific cancellation terms. Depending on when you cancel your place, you will be asked to pay 10%, 50% or 100% of the registration fee due. 100% cancellation charges apply if you book a place but do not attend the conference. This also applies if you have not yet pre-paid but you cancel or do not attend (you will still be asked to pay the applicable cancellation charge).
