Opening symposium

Terms and Conditions

The website at (our website) is owned and operated by A–Eskwadraat (we). Part 1 of these terms sets out the terms that apply to all tickets for the PLANCKS Symposium (the symposium), be it purchased online or through other means. Part 2 of these terms sets out the additional terms that apply to tickets purchased online from TicketMaster.

Part 1: Terms applying to all tickets for the PLANCKS Symposium

Your tickets are non-refundable. In case any of our lecturers has to cancel for any reason at all, you are not eligible for a refund of your ticket. However, due to the unstable health condition of prof. Stephen Hawking, you should know that there is a higher than usual chance of cancellation for this particular lecture. In this case, the organisation is free to choose a suitable alternative.

In the event of a cancelled performance or a performance that has to be abandoned part way through, we will not be liable for additional travel or accommodation expenses.

Ticket discounts
There are no discounts on any tickets for anyone. Also group discount or specific discount cards do not apply.

Tickets are strictly personal. If you bought more than one ticket, only your name will be stated on the ticket, and applies to your whole group. You cannot resell your ticket. If you are unable to make it to the event, you are allowed to resell a ticket you bought on this website, but at all times without profit.
