Registrations for delegates can only be made via this GIOHIS website. Once you register, the GIOHIS site will send you a confirmatory email.

All out-of-pocket costs of the delegate, including inter alia, (i) travel to and from the Summit or otherwise in connection with the Summit, (ii) hotel or other lodging costs, and (iii) any refreshments not included in the list are the sole responsibility of the delegate and these are not included in the registration fee. If for any reason the Summit is cancelled or postponed for any reason, you accept that GIOHIS and HOFTEL Asia Limited are not liable for any out-of-pocket costs incurred by the delegate.

Your contact information, as provided in your registration will be shared with the Summit sponsors. It will also be shared with other delegates on the Summit networking system and in the delegate list unless you have ticked the one or both boxes that say you do not wish this to be shared, or that you accept that it is shared but wish to withhold your mobile number.

Your registration is personal to you and does not allow friends, colleagues, partners, guests or anyone else to accompany you to the Summit. Unless you are a speaker, you may elect a colleague to take your place, up to 13th November 2020, upon payment to GIOHIS of a change fee of US$ 95 or after 13th November 2020 (but before 20th November) for a change fee of US$ 195. However, after 20th November 2020, any changes to delegates require the prior written approval of GIOHIS which may be withheld at its absolute discretion in which case your registration fee will be retained by GIOHIS; if the change is accepted, the change fee will be US$ 350. GIOHIS does not sell one-day tickets and a colleague may not replace you for part of the time; a change is for the entire conference.

You may cancel your participation in GIOHIS at any time by writing to sophia@hoftel.com. If you cancel prior to 23rd October 2020, your subscription will be refunded less a US$ 265 cancellation fee; if you cancel between 23rd October and 8th November 2020, your subscription will be refunded less a US$ 695 cancellation fee. If you cancel thereafter, apologies but the delegate registration payment is non-refundable in all circumstances. In the event that you do not pay and GIOHIS /HOFTEL incurs costs in reclaiming any such unpaid amount, then you agree to pay or repay to GIOHIS /HOFTEL such costs or expenses.

In the event that GIOHIS has to be postponed, your tickets will be valid for the new dates.  In the event that you cannot attend on the new dates, you can receive a full refund, or you may nominate a colleague, provided that you notify HOFTEL in either case within a set period (which will be announced on, or shortly after, any notice of postponement).  HOFTEL will bear no responsibility for your out-of-pocket expenses including travel and accommodation under such circumstances.

The participant attends the Summit at your own risk, especially with regard to Covid-19 or other communicable diseases and you further agree that GIOHIS and/or HOFTEL and their officers, agents and employees are in no way liable, directly or indirectly should you contract or transmit Covid-19 or any other communicable disease at the Summit. The participant agrees that they will not attend the Summit if they are exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19 or any other serious infectious disease; or if they are required to be in quarantine or self-isolation. If you show signs of any such disease, HOFTEL reserves the right to refuse you admission; and if HOFTEL or the host hotels or conference centre insist upon testing for Covid-19 or any other communicable disease, you will submit yourself to such test and respect the result thereof (which may mean that you cannot attend the Summit).

GIOHIS reserves the right to prohibit anyone from attending, or may allow anyone to attend, the Summit at its final discretion and without providing an explanation.
