Brake Conference Ltd reserves the right to refuse or accept any booking at its discretion.


All Fees for the Event (the term “Fees” includes all payments payable to Brake Conference Ltd for participation in the Event, including registration fees, exhibition fees, and sponsorship fees) are correct at the time of publication. Brake Conference Ltd reserves the right to change the Fees at any time. Changes to Fees will not affect registrations that have already been confirmed by Brake Conference Ltd.
