Sponsorship Terms and Conditions

Sponsor agreement

Completion of the sponsor agreement form does not confirm acceptance of offer. ASAM reserves the right to determine which applications are accepted. All sponsorships will be confirmed in writing by ASAM 2019 Conference Organisers, Iceberg Events.

Payment
50% of total sponsorship amount required on booking. Remainder is required by 30 June 2019 (special arrangements can be made).
