Social Functions/Alcohol
Registration as a Delegate or Exhibitor attendee does not automatically constitute as confirmed attendance for any social events during the course of the Forum. Every attendee (even those entitled to complimentary registrations) must respond in the affirmative as attending social functions by selecting options during online registration or via the manual booking form. Places at social functions are not held if an affirmative response is not received to the attending option.

As alcohol is on offer, all social functions are classed as a licensed event. All attendees must comply with the Venue’s responsible service of alcohol requirements. The Venue’s alcoholic beverage license requires that venue staff shall: (i) request proper identification (photo ID) of any person of questionable age and refuse alcoholic beverage service if the person is either underage or proper identification cannot be produced, and (ii) refuse alcoholic beverage service to any person who, in the Venue’s judgment, appears intoxicated.
