FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Given this event is being held in March 2021, we are confident that the NSW Law Careers Fair will be a face-to-face event and we are proceeding with event plans as usual. We will of course be communicating closely with the venue and ensuring that all COVID-19 regulations and relevant government policies, are being followed.

A detailed logistics document will be sent out to all registered exhibitors in early February 2021. We usually send this out prior to the New Year, however, we will send this later to ensure that it contains the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 policies. This document will outline further information relating to each event including the event timetable, stall inclusions, catering, and delivery instructions.

If we are unable to proceed with a face-to-face event, due to venue or government restrictions, a virtual fair will be held instead. Exhibitors can opt to receive a full refund or rollover their booking fee to 2022.

We abide by the ACCC Australian Consumer Law refund policy. No refunds will be given for cancellations if the event proceeds. This applies to all registrations received and is enforced irrespective of if an invoice has been raised or not, or if an invoice remains paid or unpaid.
