What if the event is postponed or cancelled?

We are committed to Ignite Hospo taking place in person, for every ticket holder.

This may include using an alternative platform to host the event, or moving to an alternative date. In the event of a change as described all tickets will be transferred with no additional charges. If the date is changed and you can no longer attend, we will refund your ticket upon request. The Restaurant Association is not responsible for your expenses associated with traveling to this event.

Do I get a refund if I change my mind?

We do not offer refunds if you decide to cancel your tickets due to a change of mind. However, we are happy to transfer your ticket to anyone you'd like to attend the event in your place at no cost.
