SPH Events Terms and Conditions

For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms and Conditions are an integral part of the Member Terms and Conditions (“Member Conditions”) and the Website Terms And Conditions (“Website Conditions”), which should all be read as a whole.

The provisions set out below apply if a participant is registering for an event organised by SPH (“Event”).

In the event that the registered participant is unable to attend the Event for any reason, he/she is entitled to send a replacement. The replacement must produce the event confirmation letter on the event day to facilitate his/her on-site registration. Alternatively the participant can also provide him/her with a duly endorsed authorisation letter detailing both the participant and the replacement personal details.


SPH may postpone, cancel, interrupt or terminate the Event at any time due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control (including but not limited to inclement weather, pandemics, acts of God, acts of the enemy, decrees or restraints by governmental or public authorities, terrorism, strikes, war, riots, insurrections, civil commotion, transmission and/or communications disruptions or failure and other causes of such nature), without any liability to SPH or its sponsors or partners. SPH may also change the Event venue.


If the Event is postponed to a new date, SPH shall give notice of such postponement to the participants as soon as reasonably practicable. A participant shall be entitled to receive a refund of Event registration fees paid provided that he/she makes a written request for a refund before the new event date.


If the Event is cancelled, SPH shall give notice of cancellation to the participants as soon as reasonably practicable. A participant shall be entitled to receive a refund of Event registration fees paid provided that he/she makes a written request for a refund and such request is received by SPH within two weeks from the date of the notice of postponement, cancellation or change.


SPH reserves the right to vary, add, withdraw or substitute advertised programmes or change Event times, venue or audience capacity without prior notice.


By registering for the Event, each participant agrees that:



any and all personal data submitted may be collected, used and/or disclosed to SPH and its related corporations (collectively “SPH Group”) for various purposes, including to communicate with the participant for purposes related to the Event, to provide goods and services to the participant upon request, for SPH’s publicity and/or advertising campaigns connected to the Event and for purposes indicated in the Privacy Policy, or in relation to which the participant has otherwise provided SPH Group with consent;


SPH Group may collect, use, disclose and share amongst themselves and their respective service providers, the participant’s personal data, including the photographs or audio-video or other recordings of these participants (“Material”) for publicity and/or use in advertisements across all media, including, without limitation, in SPH Group’s publications, presentations, promotional materials on their websites, in its original or edited format, and whether to promote the Event or otherwise without further notification, remuneration or compensation; and

SPH shall not be liable for any loss (including, without limitation, indirect or consequential loss), damage, personal injury or death in connection with registration for, attendance at, postponement or cancellation of the Event, except any liability that cannot be excluded by law (in which case that liability is limited to the minimum allowable by law). All participants may be required to sign an indemnity form.


SPH shall not be responsible for any minors left unattended at the Event. All children below 12 years of age attending the Event must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

SPH reserves the right without refund or compensation to refuse admission or evict any person(s) whose conduct is disorderly or inappropriate or who poses a threat to security, or to the enjoyment of the Event by others.


For seminars and workshops, any information and views expressed by the guest speakers or presenters are solely their own.
