If you refuse to accept these terms and conditions, you will not be able to book any of our events or training courses.
1) A contract shall be deemed to have been made between Cambridge Wireless (“CW”) and the booking client ("delegate") when the delegate has completed the event registration form and CW has accepted this booking.

3) CW will accept late delegate bookings, subject to availability up to and on the day of the event. CW will try to ensure that late booking information is incorporated into the event administration process; however, this cannot be guaranteed if the booking is made less than 7 days before the event.

5) Where invoice is the elected payment method, payment is due upon receipt of an invoice and must be settled prior to the event.
Consequences of failure to pay
