The IPA reserves the right to alter a program or specific presenter without notice, however, the program is intended to run as advertised. Delegates are expected to attend all events as included in the agenda. Should the delegate be unable to attend due to injury or illness they must notify the IPA group host immediately.
The Tax Cruise is subject to minimum numbers and reserves the right to cancel or reschedule the event should minimum numbers not be met. For this reason it is strongly recommended that delegates take out travel insurance at the time of booking the cruise.


IPA strongly recommends delegates take out insurance to cover loss (including registration fees) incurred in case of cancellation, medical expenses, delays and damage to or loss of personal effects. During the event, the safety of property and the individual is the consistent and sole responsibility of the delegate. The IPA will not be responsible for any medical costs, delays or damage to property incurred by participants. The IPA will not accept liability for personal injuries or for loss or damage to property belonging to tax cruise attendees, either during or as a result of the event or during any tours.
