  • What if I cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?
    Unfortunately, AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons. Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no charge.

  • Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event?
    It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter the USA when AMI is holding an event there. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements. Please find below a link to the US State Department's visa requirements web pages:

    http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html

    We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country.

  • Does the conference program ever change?
    AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programs. However, it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or to corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status any conference program

  • Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
    AMI welcomes paper offers for presentations at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference heading you will find a section on ‘Call for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to present a paper at a specific conference.
