Event Bookings

For current event costs and dates, please refer to our events listings page.

Before booking onto the event, please ensure you have read the event programme and content, to ensure the event will meet your needs. If an event registration/booking form is completed by an individual other than the named delegate, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure the delegate is authorised and able to attend the event on the employer’s behalf.

Upon receipt of your registration/booking form and subsequent payment your place(s) will be confirmed.

Important note: Young Enterprise Scotland’s acceptance of your booking brings into existence a legally binding contract between us on these terms and conditions. Any term sought to be imposed by you in any purchase order or correspondence will not form part of the contract.

Event Attendance

Delegates will receive joining instructions via e-mail to the e-mail address provided on the booking form.

It is the responsibility of the individual completing the event registration/booking form to ensure joining instructions are received by the delegate. Instructions will be sent via e-mail to the e-mail address provided on the booking form.

If the joining instructions are not received, it is the responsibility of the individual who completed the event registration/booking form to contact Young Enterprise Scotland to arrange for them to be reissued.

Failure to attend the event will result in the full cost being incurred. No refund shall be given. Failure to attend an event at which a free or concessionary rate place was given may at Young Enterprise Scotland’s sole discretion result in the delegate becoming ineligible for such places at future event(s).

Young Enterprise Scotland will send all correspondence primarily via e-mail to the e-mail provided on the booking form. If alternative details are received after the booking form has been submitted, they will supersede the original details and all future correspondence will be sent to the new address.

It may be necessary, for reasons beyond the control of Young Enterprise Scotland, to change the content and timing of the programme, the date, the venue or the speaker(s).

Event Provisions

Organising and financing accommodation and travel are the responsibility of the delegate.

Where food and refreshments are to be provided, this will be stated on the event details and the cost included in the price quoted. Any special dietary requirements need to be notified in writing to Young Enterprise Scotland in advance of the event, as specified in the event details.

Invoicing and Payments

Booking fees (including any card processing and/or booking fees applicable) are payable upon booking unless a valid, authorised Purchase Order is provided and accepted.

For online bookings paid at the time of booking, invoices/receipts will be issued electronically from the booking website on completion of the booking.

Event Cancellations and Amendments
