What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellation of a booking for the awards must be received by CMG in writing by email or by post, no later than 14 days prior to the event date. Regrettably no cancellations or refunds can be made after this date. Cancellations will be charged an administration fee of 25%.

Bookings made within the 14 days prior to the event date have to be paid at the time of booking and regrettably no cancellations can be taken within this period as the two-week cancellation does not apply. In the event of CMG Events cancelling an event your place will automatically move to the re-scheduled date. If this is unsuitable a credit note will be issued and valid for 6 months from date of issue.
