Booking Terms and Conditions

  • Delegate places are not confirmed until full payment is received.
  • You’ll receive a confirmation email containing your numbered delegate ticket.
  • Delegate substitutions can be accepted.
  • Due to the cost of reserving the venue and booking speakers, we regret that the ABM is unable to refund tickets.

Babes in arms are welcome at the conference but we regret the venue isn’t suited to toddlers. If your baby becomes restless or noisy, we respectfully ask that you quietly leave the conference room until your baby is quieter. It’s important that we let the hotel know exactly how many people are expected on the day, so please inform us if you intend to bring your baby along.

You can book your place using our online booking form or can email admin@abm.me.uk for other payment methods or to request an invoice or to ask a question.
