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 25th January 2019, upon payment to GIOHIS of a change fee of US$ 150 or after 25th January (but before 1st February) for a change fee of US$ 250. However, after 1st February 2019, 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.
