Whats in it for me?
We are striving to encourage more event organisers to use our new system, so that it makes it easier for you to apply online from any device.
We ask all organisers to accept our booking fees so that you do not have to.
Not only do we send all your information directly to the organiser, but you can access this information from anywhere, and at any time! You also get immediate acknowledgement from us, advising you that the organiser has been sent all your details, and that you are now listed as an applicant in their dashboard. This confirmation email also includes their terms and conditions. Upon acceptance and subsequently payment being received (which is all automated and explained in an email) you will also have access to a Sales Receipt in the Exhibitors, Purchases area.
We remind organisers that you are waiting for a response after 14 days, however, they are under no commitment to make a decision until their deadline (please read their terms and conditions).
You will always be notified in your shopping basket of any other fees before you offer any payment.
No aceptance of application bny the organiser = no card charge
Cards accepted are Visa and Master Card. Unfortunately Maestro Cards, American Express cannot not be accepted. A nominal card processing fee of 1.4%+20p is added, unless absorbed by the organiser.
