Common Payment Issue Solutions
 
If you got stuck at the payment stage and could not complete your registration, please give us a call us and we will help you complete your registration or you can email us your credit card details and we will process it on the back end. Or see the common payment issue solutions below.  
 
Billing Address - A common issue is the incorrect billing address, please ensure it is the billing address as opposed to your corporate office.
 
Billing Address Completion - Can we recommend you keep your billing address as simple as possible, avoid any suite numbers in the Address Line 1, just your street number and name, and avoid putting any information in Address Line 2, best to keep that blank.
 
Your Payment Processor
Because we are headquartered out of the UK, on a rare occasion for some payment processors this flags as fraudulent. Please call your credit card company, and ask them to authorise the transaction to Proqis, and then try re processing your credit card payment again.  
 
Select Wire Transfer - If you have tried several times with no joy, can we recommend you select Wire Transfer, and call us on 312 496 6621 or email us to contact you to take your credit card payment over the telephone or make a wire transfer. At the end of the registration process you are automatically emailed an invoice. 
 
I want an invoice first and then wish to pay by Wire Transfer

Registration Process 

We only take registrations online. Payment is via credit or debit card or wire transfer (see above). We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB & Maestro. Please contact us at info@proqis.com if you have any questions regarding this. 

Payment must be received prior to the conference.

Early Bird Discount 

The current Early Bird Discount pricing is our lowest price. There is no lower single registration pricing option. When you register online, prices displayed are automatically reflective of the Early Bird Discount.  

I have two discounts e.g. Early Bird and a team discount. I would like to use these for my conference registration; can I use both of them? 

No, we do not combine discounts, so it is important you select the best discount for you. Check the prevailing Early Bird Discount and the applicable team discount, and pick the best option. 

All 'Early Bird' Discounts must require payment at time of registration and before the cut-off date in order to receive any discount.

Team Discounts 

We understand the value of team knowledge-sharing and encourage the holding of team meetings & events around the summit.

Hence, team bookings from the same company receive the following discounts. 

Discounts apply off the FULL PRICE only, and cannot be applied retrospectively if some team members have already booked. 

Obtaining the team discount is simple. Please click the orange register button above, and when you get to the registration site, use the respective Registration Code below.

You do not have to book the entire team together at the same time, but you are expected to meet the threshold to qualify for that discount to avoid your price being readjusted to the appropriate discount level or full price. 

Teams of 3+     receive a 25% discount with Registration Code: BTOES25 
Teams of 5+     receive a 30% discount with Registration Code: BTOES30
Teams of 7+     receive a 35% discount with Registration Code: BTOES35
Teams of 10+  receive a 40% discount with Registration Code: BTOES40

Teams of 20+ receive a 50% discount with Registration Code: BTOES50

What happens if I have already registered, and I receive a subsequent discount code? 

Unfortunately, we cannot apply discounts retrospectively. 

Do I need to select tracks and workshops prior to the conference?

No, you can select the workshops and tracks on the day, and you can move between different sessions at any time.

How will I receive my registration confirmation?

GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation, or postponement of an event. GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH shall assume no liability whatsoever if this event is altered, rescheduled, postponed or cancelled due to a fortuitous event, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of this conference inadvisable, illegal, impracticable or impossible. For purposes of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include, but shall not be limited to: an Act of God; governmental restrictions and/or regulations; war or apparent act of war; terrorism or apparent act of terrorism; disaster; civil disorder, disturbance, and/or riots; curtailment, suspension, and/or restriction on transportation facilities/means of transportation; or any other emergency. 

Please note that speakers and topics were confirmed at the time of publishing, however, circumstances beyond the control of the organizers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. As such, GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or topics if necessary. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible. 

The purpose of the below information is to provide clarificaiton of our Terms & Conditions relating to cancellation.

GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH does not provide refunds for cancellations, and any fees outstanding are payable in full. Invoices outstanding cannot be cancelled. 

This policy is common to most commercial conference companies that stage high-ticket commercial conferences. The reason we have this policy is because the nature of our conference is expensive to stage, and once an attendee registers, a number of logistic and supplier commitments are made, in particularly to the hotel F&B.  

We do make our cancellation policy very clear during the registration process, where the refund and cancellation policy is detailed clearly and explicitly, and part of the process is to confirm your acceptance by ticking the box "I have read and accept the terms and conditions" You can click on your registration confirmation link to that same policy on your invoice. 

The only options we offer are a credit for BTOES 2021 for either yourself or a colleague, or sending a substitute colleague to BTOES 2020. This is only if you cancel fifteen (15) working days prior to an event. For BTOES 2020 this date is March 2nd, 2020. This is because we place all our final supplier orders, and F&B orders. 

Changes to the Program

GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH reserves the right to make changes to any aspect of the programme, agenda, speakers, dates and venue location and can also cancel or postpone events if enrolment criteria are not met, or when conditions beyond its control prevail. Every effort will be made to contact each delegate if the event is postponed or cancelled. If an event is cancelled for any reason. Please note, if the event is postponed and rescheduled to a future date, no refunds will be provided, and you would still be responsible for the full fee. GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH’s liability is limited to the refund of the registration fee only if the event is completely cancelled and not postponed. GLOBAL MEDIA RESEARCH is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, postponement, alteration or cancellation of the event due to causes beyond its control including, without limitation, natural disasters, sabotage, trade or industrial disputes or hostilities, accident, epidemic or pandemic, or any other emergency.
