Invoices with an address in the European Union should be provided with a VAT Number. The invoicing address and VAT number can only be set up during the registration process.

Healthcare companies or third-party agencies cannot create a delegate “My ESC account” to register their delegates.

Changes cannot be made to an invoice following a purchase through the My ESC account. An invoice to an individual cannot be transferred to an organisation after payment. To avoid disappointment, please check the billing details carefully before payment. If in doubt, contact us.

Payment of fees

Payment by Credit card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express) can be made through the online services on our secured server. For security reasons, under no circumstances should credit card details be sent by email or fax.

In case of additional payments for extra orders or adjustments, a secured payment link will be sent by email.
The registration fees rate is based on the date of receipt of the registration request. The prices indicated are only applicable if BOTH the registration request AND payment are received before midnight, Central European Time (GMT +1), on the relevant registration deadline date, otherwise, the higher registration fee will be applied.

Registrations will be acknowledged by email upon receipt of payment and a valid personal email address. Incomplete addresses or agency addresses will not be accepted and will result in the cancellation of the registration.

Active registrations are nominative and non-transferable.

Miscellaneous

Should a delegate not attend the event, for whatever reason, no further claims for reimbursement or waiving of fees can be made.

Modification of the programme

The ESC reserves the right to modify the event programme at any time, which is published as an indication only and subject to change.

No waiving of fees nor right to further claims will be possible should the ESC be obliged to alter the programme of ESC Congress 2024.

Changes, postponement and cancellation

Given serious cause, the ESC is entitled to postpone (modify the dates), to curtail the duration, or to cancel the onsite event. In the event of complete or part postponement or curtailment, the registration is regarded as valid for a possible new date and new duration for the said onsite event.

If the onsite event has to be cancelled, the ESC will strive to maintain the online event and any onsite registration will be automatically transferred to an online registration. The delegate will be refunded the difference between the onsite and online fee, at the rate applicable when the original onsite fee was paid.

If, due to any contingency that the ESC cannot overcome (in particular force majeure), both the onsite event and the online event have to be cancelled, registrations by individuals will be reimbursed in full, however a charge for administrative costs may be retained for group registrations, as specified in the Group registration conditions. Apart from reimbursement of registration fees, delegates will not be entitled to compensation for any costs or damages incurred as a consequence of such event cancellation, change or postponement
