How can I pay?

Payments for conferences are accepted by bank transfer, cash or credit card. Each conference programme will give full details of how payments can be made.

Do I get a refund if I cancel my participation at the conference?

Full refunds, less a cancellation charge of €200 will be made on cancellations received one month prior to the event. Thereafter we regret that no refunds can be made.

Degates may be substituted at any time. Please refer to the question Can my colleague replace me if I cannot attend the conference for more information. 

Please note, no refunds wil be given at any time on table top packages, sponsorship packages or dinner bookings.

If your company is planning to send 2 or more delegates, you are entitled to a group discount. Please contact the Conference Organiser on: +44 (0) 117 314 8111 for more details.

What if I cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?

Unfortunately AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons.

Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no extra charge.  Please refer to the question can my colleague replace me if I cannot attend the conference for more information

Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding a conference?

It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter a country where AMI is holding a conference. This is especially the case for individuals attending our conferences and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location.

Unfortunately we are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.

Does the conference programme ever change?

AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programmes. However, it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status of any conference programme.

Can I give a paper at an AMI conference?

Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers for presentation at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference you will find a section on Call for papers, which tells you what to do if you want to offer to present a paper at a specific conference.

I would like to suggest a new conference

We would love to hear from you. Contact Adele Brown, Conference Manager on ab@amiplastics.com  

I have another question that has not been answered

Please email your question to Adele Brown, Conference Manager at ab@amiplastics.com who will do her best to assist you

When will my invoice be sent?

You will be sent an invoice in 7-14 working days via post/email. Please allow additional time for postage.

If your company requires a purchase order number to be quoted on the invoice, please note that this must be provided at the time of registration
