Event Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions for IPF Events

IPF seminars

These conditions apply also to events that the IPF runs jointly with other organisations.

Member bookings are accepted only through the website, unless otherwise advised for individual events.  Bookings are not firm until a confirmation email has been received. Where an event is open to non-members, they should book online. They will only be allocated a place if there is room on the event after member bookings have been completed. Unless otherwise specified the non-member rates for seminars are £85 in London and £65 for those in the regions.

Places on seminars are allocated in order of booking and, once the number of places have been filled, any additional bookings will be added to a waiting list.

Any member who has booked on an event and then is unable to attend should advise the IPF office by email so their place can be re-allocated to a member on the waiting list. Where there is no waiting list, and a member identifies another member as a substitute delegate, the former should advise the IPF office by email at least two days before the event so we can ensure that the substitute is included on the delegate list and has a name badge etc. Where the IPF has not been so advised, it reserves the right to turn away the substitute, even if they are a member. In the case of non-member substitutes, we reserve the right to bill the member with the non-member fee for the event (currently £85 in London and £65 in the Regions). Payment can be made online by cheque (made payable to Investment Property Forum), by BACS (please supply details of BACS reference and date of transfer) or credit card and should be received ideally before the date of the event and within five working days afterwards at the latest.

Seminar dates, venues, speakers and/or chairmen may change at any time and without prior notice.

IPF accepts no responsibility for the views or opinions as expressed by the speakers, chairman or any other persons at the event.

IPF Workshops

These conditions apply also to workshops that the IPF runs jointly with other organisations.

Workshops are open to non-members as well as members, unless specified otherwise. Bookings and payment should be made via the IPF website and bookings are firm once a confirmation email has been received. Payment must be made prior to the date of the workshop. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis but members are given priority should the workshop be oversubscribed.  

Cancellations must be made in writing and will be subject to a 10% administration charge, but no refunds can be made for cancellations notified within 21 days of the workshop unless the reason for cancellation is because the IPF has changed the date since the booking was received. Delegate substitutions can be made up to two days prior to the workshop free of charge. Where the place was booked by a member and the substitute is a non-member, the IPF will bill the member for the balance of the non-member fee. The IPF will not refund the difference should the reverse situation arise.

Workshop dates, venues, speakers and/or chairmen may change at any time and without prior notice.

IPF accepts no responsibility for the views or opinions as expressed by the speakers, chairman or any other persons at the workshop.

IPF Dinners and Lunches

Tables must be booked by an IPF member and will be for 10 , 11 or 12 (the availability of tables for more than 10 is limited by the respective venue). 

Some individual tickets for places on a ‘shared’ table may be available at an event. The IPF cannot guarantee the composition of any ‘shared tables’. 

Payment must be made with the booking unless an invoice is required. Any request for an invoice must include full details as to the correct addressee and address, together with the purchase order number, if appropriate. All payments for tickets must be received no later than seven days before the date of the respective dinner or lunch.  

Cancellations must be made in writing and will be subject to a 10% administration charge, but no refunds can be made for cancellations notified within 21 days of the event.

The details regarding the provision of any special dietary requirements and the ordering of wine and other beverages vary according to the venue and will be advised at the time that each event is open for booking. Some special dietary requirements, e.g. Kosher meals, are likely to be subject to an additional charge, which is payable (to the venue) by the table host or ticket holder, as appropriate. Any changes made at the event may be subject to an additional charge, which will be added to your final table bill. The IPF is not responsible for this charge. 

The speakers at the event may change at any time and without prior notice. No refunds or discounts are payable should this be the case.

Host and guest names to be included in the respective dinner or lunch booklet must be provided by the date specified when the event opens for booking to ensure that names are included. Any changes or substitutions to the host or guest names made after the date of submission are not guaranteed to be included in the booklet.
