Terms & Conditions
Please be advised that listed below are the guidelines on which this and all future events presented by The HUB Productions will adhere to.
Ticketing & Seating
1. Purchase of tickets to an event indicates acceptance of the Terms and Conditions as advised on the Hub Productions website. Terms and Conditions also apply to venue staff, Hub Productions staff, volunteers and freelance hirees, retailers and competition winners. Attendance of the event in any capacity constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. All Terms and Conditions apply unless the Hub Productions or DCA Enterprises specifically advise otherwise in writing.
2. Unless otherwise stated tickets are mailed out two weeks prior to an event via registered post. Should you miss the two week cut off period, or live outside of Australia, the tickets will be available for collection at the door. Should your tickets not arrive prior to the event, or are delayed for any reason, photo ID or your receipt will be required to enter the event and may be presented at the door for that purpose. Failure of tickets to arrive does not constitute a breach of these Terms and Conditions and does not warrant a refund, as entry can be made with your receipt or photo ID.
3. ID or e-mailed conformation will be required to collect tickets at the door. Group tickets booked together will be mailed out to, or must be collected by, the individual who placed the booking.
4. Your ticket must be carried at all times and displayed on request. Failure to do so will prevent you from accessing the events.
5. Your seating number will be displayed on your ticket and seats are issued on the basis of the date you booked.
6. Tickets purchased at the door, if available, may be at a higher price.
7. We reserve the right to refuse ticket sales to individuals or to impose conditions on the sale or means of payment of tickets.
8. a) All tickets are non refundable once purchased. Change of personal circumstance does not qualify for a refund, transfer to another event, or any other change to purchased tickets. In the case where an event is postponed, tickets will automatically be transferred to the newly announced convention date (please note that should ticket prices rise there will be no additional charge). If you are unable to attend the event on the newly announced date your ticket will be rolled over to a future event, should you qualify as per the conditions in 8. a) i.
i. Once ticketholders are advised of the new event date, you have a window of one month (dated from when the advisory email is sent by DCA Enterprises) in which to advise us that you are unable to attend the new event date and provide supporting documentation and/or evidence. After this time all tickets are non-transferable to other events and non-refundable.
b) In the case of event cancellation, your purchase will be refunded, or you may roll your ticket over to a future event. Ticket rollover is not available under any other circumstances.
c) Events are based around a particular TV show, group of shows, movie, or series of movies, and not on specific guests. Thus, change of advertised guests due to work commitments or other circumstances does not qualify for ticket refunds; this also applies in the case of a changed guest line-up for a postponed event. Please note that while every effort will be made to replace the guests, this is not always possible. Advertising a particular number of guests for an event is not a guarantee that such a number of guests will attend that event. Should a lesser number of guests than originally advertised attend an event, this does not qualify attendees for ticket refunds.
d) Further, DCA Enterprises reserves the right to change event dates in order to best suit the majority of the guests and attendees. As tickets are non-refundable should a guest cancel their appearance at an event, it is advisable not to purchase tickets based solely on the appearance on one guest, unless the entire event revolves around that guest's appearance only. Similarly, should the description or contents of the ticket inclusions change, yet still hold the same intrinsic value, no refund is warranted.
e) In the case of extenuating circumstances, where The Hub Productions & DCA Enterprises choose, as a gesture of goodwill, to allow a ticket to be transferred from a non-cancelled event, the ticket holder is not entitled to a refund should the event to which the ticket has been transferred subsequently be cancelled. The ticket may only be rolled over to an alternative event, or held in credit towards a future event.
9. Attendees are responsible to make their own way to event locations. The Hub Productions & DCA Enterprises are not responsible for any transit costs to events and will not reimburse said costs in case of event postponement, cancellation, or change of venue. In the event of change of venue, the Hub will endeavour to obtain a new venue within a reasonable distance of the original venue for the attendees' convenience, but makes no guarantees in this regard. Up to date details for each event will be made available via the Hub Productions website, but the onus is on attendees to ensure that they are fully aware of venue, guest line-up, price, date and any other details pertaining to the event. The Hub Productions cannot be held accountable for failure of attendees to obtain up to date event details prior to the event.
10. Processing of orders can take up to two business days under normal circumstances. Upcoming or currently ongoing events may result in longer processing times.
11. By attending a Hub event, you waive any personal or property rights for your likeness appearing in either still photographs or DVD recordings used by DCA Enterprises for either promotional purposes, or event DVD release.
12. If for any reason you are unable to sit in the assigned area for your tier of seating, you not entitled to a discount on the ticket price. DCA Enterprises and the Hub Productions will endeavour to place you in the closest accessible part of the venue to the assigned area for your seating tier, however this is entirely dependent on the venue's facilities and availability of accessible seating at the time at which you purchase your ticket and advise DCA Enterprises and the Hub Productions of your accessibility requirements.
13. Inappropriate behaviour is not tolerated at Hub events in any form. Specifically:
a) Do not request hugs and kisses from guests.
b) There is to be no inappropriate touching of the guests of any kind.
