The organisers of the popular JCT Traffic Signals Symposium are promising delegates signing up that they’ll get a full refund if for any reason the physical event does not take place as planned in Nottingham this September.
In an email seen by Highways News, JCT says following the Government’s increased confidence of removal of Covid restrictions in July, the prospect of the Symposium being able to go ahead in its traditional format is improving but that, just in case, it is again offering a Book With Confidence guarantee.
“Make a booking for the Symposium and JCT will not action your purchase order until we are confident that we can deliver. And even then in the unlikely event that the Live Symposium has to be cancelled we will make a full and complete refund of any monies paid,” the email reads.
It appears that in order to ensure the viability of the event, delegate bookings are needed now, so those planning to go are urged to show their commitment by making a booking, safe in the knowledge that their money is itself safe if the worst happens and the event has to be cancelled. An early bird discount is currently available, offering a buy-one-get-one-half-price deal.
Last year’s virtual symposium was successful in delivering papers, but – like other online conferences – did not include the social aspects or exhibition which are key parts of the overall event.
Exhibitors are backing the physical event, with more paid-up stands than ever before, and more than 20 papers from across the private and public sectors have already been approved.
