• Roundtable Bookings:
Payment Terms: A deposit of 20% is payable immediately upon signature of the contract. The balance of the fee is payable prior to the event.

The scoping form must be completed a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the Event date. The date of the event cannot be confirmed until both the deposit and the scoping document have been paid/submitted.
• Events and Roundtables
In the event of cancellation or postponement of the Event through no fault of FST Media PTY Ltd refunds will not be given. Furthermore FST Media PTY Ltd will be able to treat itself as wholly or partly released from its obligations to provide the Sponsorship Package and will not be under any liability to the Sponsor for any failure to perform its obligations.
In the event that FST Media PTY Ltd elects to cancel the Event due to circumstances within its control, FST Media PTY Ltd will (in its absolute discretion) either offer the Sponsor an alternative sponsorship package of comparable standard and benefits or a credit of equivalent value towards a future FST Media event, such credit to be valid for one year from the date of issue.
Cancellation by the Sponsor will only be valid if made in writing. If the Sponsor cancels a Sponsorship Package at any time prior to the Event it will still remain liable to pay FST Media PTY Ltd the full amount of the Sponsorship Fee and if it has already paid the Sponsorship Fee it shall not be entitled to a refund.

Written notice of cancellation 45 days prior to the advertising publish date is required. A minimum charge of 25% is due in the event of cancelation irrespective of the date of activity/event or campaign upon signing the booking agreement. If an order is cancelled within 45 days, then the full amount is payable
