Our events require registration in writing.

You have the choice between the following options:

  • Online

By registering as a participant, you accept these conditions of participation. Registrations will be considered in the order, in which they are received.

2. Seminar/event fees and payment deadline

The full price of the seminar is due within 14 days of invoice receipt without any deduction. The invoice will be issued together with registration confirmation.

 

The seminar price includes the costs of participation in the event including any indicated event documents, as well as catering during the seminar hours. It does not include the costs of accommodations, parking, travel or the costs of any meals outside the seminar hours.

The tiered participation fee for the Business Owner Success Forum includes participation in the entire event, lunch and two dinners, as well as coffee and beverages. Please note that, in this case as well, your registration will only take effect once our written registration confirmation has been issued.

 

3. Cancellation

You can cancel your registration at any time not later than 4 weeks (28 calendar days) before the seminar starts.

The cancellation must be made in writing. We kindly ask for your understanding of the fact that we do not accept cancellations by telephone. A fax or email to info@intes-akademie.de will suffice.

 

50 percent of the seminar price will be charged for cancellations later than four weeks before the start of the event. The full seminar price will be charged for cancellations later than two weeks before the start of the event or if you do not show up for the event without canceling. You have the possibility, however, to designate substitute participants within the target group of the particular event.

As an exception to this rule, we will charge 50 percent of the event price for cancellations for the Business Owner Success Forum received later than six weeks prior to the event and we will charge the full event price for cancellations received later than three weeks prior to the event. You have the possibility, however, to designate substitute participants within the target group of the event.
