The policy taken should include the loss of deposit through cancellation, medical insurance, loss or damage to personal property, financial loss incurred through disruptions to accommodation or travel arrangements due to strikes or other industrial action. The policy should also cover you in case of loss in the event the meeting is cancelled for any reason including force majeure. The organisers shall make every effort to realise the event. The organisers are in no way responsible for any claims concerning insurance. The Scientific Faculty nor The Human Genome Variation Society or Meeting Makers Pty Ltd will take any responsibility for any participant failing to insure. Please speak to your travel agent or airline in regard to this matter.
