  • 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 a country where AMI is holding an event. This is especially the case for individuals attending our events and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location. We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.
  • Does the conference programme ever change?
    AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programmes. 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 corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status of any conference program.
  • Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
    Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers for presentation 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 offer to present a paper at a specific conference.
