Event Payment Methods and Terms

Participants must pay in advance by eft or credit card (facilitated by McNaughton Events) or check prior to entering the event.

McNaughton Events will engage with each delegate and ensure that the delegate will receive a Client Information Form (CIF) for the registration of the delegate / entity on the McNaughton Events Financial system, for the issuing of invoices.

All invoice will need to be paid prior to the event, whether at the McNaughton Events venue or on receipt of invoice.

Participants not paying via one of these methods may be denied entrance to the event.

Payment is due in full upon completion and return of the registration form. Due to limited conference space, we advise early registration and payment by credit card to avoid disappointment. McNaughton Events (PTY) Ltd reserves the right to admit or refuse admission to delegates who have not shown proof of payment of conference fees or not agreed to sign an indemnity form.
