Puchase Orders/Invoice Payments
We like to make purchasing your tickets as easy as possible. We understand that sometimes a third party such as a purchasing or finance department will purchase your tickets on your behalf. To ease this, tickets can be purchased by credit card, or ‘Pay by Invoice’. If tickets are purchased using the Pay by Invoice option, we kindly ask that you follow the criteria below — if you’re not paying the invoice please be sure to pass this information to the person who will;
- Payment is due 14 days after booking — please pay within this timeframe
- Our bank details can be found on our invoice for your bank transfer
- When making a bank transfer please ensure to add your booking number as a reference
- If you are making an international payment, please cover all fees including bank transfers and currency conversion. If these aren’t paid we reserve the right to issue a further invoice to cover these costs
- Please contact John Davey if you have any queries
Is VAT being charged on my ticket?
This is a common question. Yes, VAT is applicable on all tickets — this is because the ‘Place of Supply’ is where the ‘Event’ is actually taking place. This means that VAT must be charged at the applicable rate where the event occurs.
How do EU purchasers recover the VAT?
Taxable entities within the EU should claim any VAT refund entitlement through the portal of their home state tax collection agency, for example Irish Taxable entities should recover French VAT incurred through the portal of the Revenue Commissioners in the Republic of Ireland- please note however that there is often a de minimis claim level before refunds can be claimed.
How do non-EU purchasers recover the VAT?
The ability to recover VAT incurred by a non EU entity will depend entirely upon any reciprocity agreement that may be in force between the country in which the VAT was incurred and the Country where the non EU client is based. Additional advices will need to be taken if this scenario applies.
How can I get the best price or other discounts?
We usually go on sale in late March - beginning of April. If you are signed up to our newsletter, you will be first to get news such as tickets going on sale, and of any special promo's.
Any special deals if I send my team?
Absolutely! If you are sending more than 3 people! We have 3-pack, 6-pack and 10-pack deals. Of course, there is another way to send a lot of your team - become a partner. We have many partner opportunities that include tickets, so you get the best of all worlds - brand visibility, tickets, and great inspiration and motivation for your team!
How do I qualify for student pricing?
Students always get a great deal.
Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org from your student email account and we will send you a link to get student tickets.
Please note: to qualify for student tickets, you must be in full time education and must have a current valid student ID.
Can I register at the event?
Sure, if we have places, but, tickets are much cheaper in advance.
How do I collect my ticket and register for the conference?
Once you register online, your details will be added to our attendee database. Prior to the event, we will email all attendees with directions and registration open times for you to pick up your badge, event program, swag, and attendee t-shirts.
What if I have to cancel?
Cancellations, name changes and general terms are found here.
I want to plan who I see.
Great. Our schedule will show you who is speaking in which theatre at what time. It will also tell you what type of talk it will be - such as design, code, film, illustration etc. The schedule can be found over here.
When is the full lineup announced??
Speakers are announced regularly from site launch in late April; the best way to stay up to date is ensure you are subscribed to our newsletter.
What if I am not interested in a particular talk?
This is the benefit of a multi-track format. You can choose to see any talk in any of the 3 theatres that we have running.
I went to Reasons to last year, is there new stuff for me this year?
Absolutely, every year we wanna make it fresh and new content. We like our speakers to talk about their wins, their failures, how they overcome hurdles. Tell us the good the bad and the warts, and share how to get through all that. We try every year to bring new faces, and only bring back speakers who we haven't seen for a while. That helps keep it fresh.
I am new to Brighton, where do I stay? Eat? Drink?
Check out our Location page. There is tons of info on getting to and from Brighton, where to stay, and more.
Are there networking opportunities?
OK, here's the dealio.
We believe that one of the biggest benefits to a multi-track event is that you are not likely to sit next to the same person twice! Single track events tend to breed a 'camp mentality' - 'this is my seat, I'm gonna leave my coat here whilst I go get coffee, and when I come back, I'm sitting here again - next to the same people that have been here all day!'
We have plenty of breaks to grab a coffee and say hi to people. We have evening get-togethers. But of course, a lot of it is down to you. If you don't want to talk to anyone, the likelihood is that your networking will not be as successful as those who do want to chat and share. Rule of thumb: Bring plenty of business cards, stickers if you like, and be willing to hand them out and trade them!
