Group Registration Conditions
The group registration service enables you to register your delegates as a group by purchasing access codes. This service is available through the ESC website for companies and agencies to manage group registrations.
We remind you that Article L. 313-6-2 of the French Penal Code states: 'The act of selling, offering to sell… or providing the means for sale or assignment of Access credentials to a sporting, cultural or commercial congress…in a usual way without the authorization of the organizer…of this congress… is punishable by a fine of €15,000. The penalty is a fine of €30,000 for repeat offences.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, access credentials are considered as all Access tickets, documents, messages or codes, whatever the form or medium, giving evidence that the right to attend the congress has been granted by the organizer...'
In such a case, the ESC reserves the right to cancel the corresponding registration(s) and to take legal action, without prejudice to any other civil or criminal action that may be brought.
Registrations should be made through one contact person responsible for managing the group. In addition to the general registration conditions, by registering, you fully accept all conditions as further detailed:
- Registration access codes can be ordered through the Group Registration order form available by clicking on the “Group Registration Box.”
- All groups from an EU country must provide a VAT number.
