/ Ticketing terms & conditions /




These Terms and Conditions apply to all attendees, partners, speakers and guests (together, ‘Participants’) at the World Cycling Forum 2023 (WCF) organized by the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) and taking place at the Messe München Fairground including the ICM (Venue).  


Delegate Pass  


To enter the WCF, each Participant must collect a delegate pass. The delegate pass must be worn at all times during the WCF. Information about the collection of delegate passes will be communicated to Participants prior to the WCF.


Delegate passes are valid for the named Participant only and cannot be transferred.  You may be asked to provide photographic ID to collect your pass.   


Only Participants who have paid for the WCF in full prior to the start of the event will be issued a delegate pass.


WCF Event Area 


To ensure compliance with the protective and hygiene measures prescribed by law, WFSGI is entitled to restrict the number of persons in the entire WCF event area or parts of it. WFSGI may therefore temporarily deny customers access to the entire WCF event area or parts of it. If a Participant is not permitted to enter the WCF event area at all, WFSGI will consider any application for a refund on a case-by-case basis. WFSGI’s decision is final. Further claims are excluded.


Participants attendance at the WCF is, at all times, at the sole discretion of the WFSGI. WFSGI reserves the right to refuse entry to you to the WCF, or to request that you leave the WCF, without notice for any reason. 


Event Postponement, Cancellation or Modification 


In the event that the WCF cannot be held or is postponed due to events beyond the control of WFSGI (force majeure), or due to events which are not attributable to fraud or negligence of WFSGI, WFSGI will not be liable to delegates for any damages, costs, or losses incurred including, but not limited to, transportation and accommodation costs.  


Ticket refunds for postponement or cancellation will be issued at the sole discretion of WFSGI.  WFSGI’s decision is final and further claims are excluded.


WFSGI reserves the right to modify the WCF programme. No refunds will be granted as a result of a modification in the programme including, but not limited to, any cancellation or failure to show by one or more WCF speakers.


Ticket Cancellation 


You are entitled to cancel your registration up to two months prior to the WCF.  In such circumstances you will be refunded your full ticket price save for the reasonable costs of administration (including invoice generation and applicable bank charges). 


If you cancel your registration less than two months prior to the WCF you are not entitled to any refund, but you may apply to change the name of the participant.  Such changes are granted at the sole discretion of WFSGI. 


Participants who are refused entry to the WCF by WFSGI because:  

  • They are unable to provide the proof required in paragraph four and/or 
  • one of the reasons in paragraph five applies,  are not automatically entitled to a refund of the ticket fee paid. WFSGI will consider any application for a refund on a case-by-case basis.  WFSGI reserves the right to request appropriate proof from the applicant which will be accepted at the sole discretion of WFSGI.  WFSGI’s decision is final and further claims are excluded.  




During the WCF, WFSGI may take, use and distribute pictures and videos of Participants in accordance with the WFSGI’s Privacy Policy.  The Privacy Policy is available online at https://worldcyclingforum.org/.


You agree that, as far is permissible under law, WFSGI is not liable to you for any loss or damage (including incidental, indirect, special, consequential or economic loss, loss of opportunity, exemplary or punitive damages) whether to person or property (save where such loss or damage arises from negligence or fraud by the Organizers) in connection with the WCF.
