Cancellation & refund policy
EWEA is aware that your business environment is continuously changing, and our aim is to support you with a flexible approach when it comes to EWEA event registration cancellation. However, please keep in mind that we commit expenses for each attendee well in advance of the conference and exhibition; and we must strictly adhere to the outlined cancellation & refund policy.
Cancellations of conference delegate registrations must be communicated to EWEA, in writing by e-mail to [email protected], by 17 February 2014 the latest. Conference registration cancellations will be subject to a Euro (€) 75 cancellation fee (plus VAT). After that date, no refunds will be made for cancellations or for no shows. However, substitutions are permitted at no charge until 3 March 2014. Please note we cannot change the invoice or make any other changes. Shared registrations are not permitted. All refunds will be processed after the event. Any refunds to credit card payments may only be credited back to the original credit card.
No cancellations will be accepted or refunds made for exhibition visitor passes, exhibitor staff passes, buffet lunch tickets, dinner tickets and tickets for the technical site visit. However, you may change the attendee details provided for these passes via the online registration account (to be accessed via your registration email) until 3 March 2014.
Registration fees are based on the date of receipt of the registration form. The prices indicated are per person and are only applicable if both the registration form and the payment are received before the deadlines mentioned above; otherwise the higher registration fee will be applied.
If a person is found to be ineligible for the membership and/or other discount under which they have registered, EWEA reserves the right to audit or adjust the registration fees applied.

EWEA Membership fee
EWEA membership rates will be applied and a member company will appear in the relevant list only if all membership payments have been made and if the organisation is an EWEA member at the date of the event.
The processing time for new membership contracts is two weeks. If the membership status is not valid at the date of registration (either due to non-payment or contract processing time), the non-member fee will be charged and any reimbursements made only after receipt of the membership payment.
Payment must accompany the registration form. Registrations received without payment will not be processed nor confirmed. All prices are in Euro (€). All payments must be made in Euro (€); no other currency will be accepted.
Payment by credit card (for all registration categories)
The online registration platform is a secured site. VISA and Eurocard/MasterCard are the only credit cards accepted. Please enter all relevant information on the registration form. It is also mandatory that the credit cardholder’s name is clearly mentioned if it differs from the registrant’s name.
Credit card fees are the sole responsibility of the registrant and should be paid in addition to the registration fees.
Spanish VAT is applicable on the registration fees (21%) and costs relating to food and beverages (10%). Please note that VAT on registration fees paid by companies and other taxable entities can only be reclaimed if the client’s VAT number is mentioned on the invoice. If applicable, please fill out your company’s VAT number in the corresponding section on the registration form.
Only a digital version of invoices will be sent to participants upon completion of the online registration. The invoice will be issued using the billing details provided on the registration form so please make sure you have provided us with the correct information (company name, address and VAT/tax identification number if applicable).
