  • How do I request an invoice?

    We can only issue invoices for groups of 5 or more attendees. To ensure that your invoice is correct, we will contact you to confirm that your booking is complete before we issue your invoice. The following things will affect your invoice – if you plan to make any of the changes listed below please let us know by emailing events@bmj.com and we will delay sending your invoice until you have completed your booking.

    1. Adding additional delegates to your booking
    2. Removing delegates from your booking
    3. Changing any information of who or where the invoice should be addressed to
    4. Adding a purchase order or reference number

    If we have issued your invoice and you wish to book additional delegates at a later date, we suggest that you create a new booking and pay with credit/debit card. Alternatively, if the new booking is 5 or more delegates we can issue a separate invoice for the new group.
