SMW Sydney T&C's

These T&C's contain important info, so please read them entirely.


MASTER CLASS REGISTRATION – You are responsible for registering your place in the two (2) Master Classes included as part of the benefits of your SMW Sydney Insider Pass. Master Classes will have a limited amount of places available exclusively for Insider Pass holders, and all Master Class sessions are subject to limited event capacity restrictions outlined below.

How to register: Within 24 – 48 hours of completing you SMW Sydney Insider Pass purchase you will be emailed two promotional codes that will each entitle you to a 100% discount on a SMW Sydney Master Class ticket. To secure your place in the two Master Classes that your Insider Pass entitles you to, you need to purchase tickets for the respective two Master Classes you wish to attend using the promotional codes provided.

INSIDER PASSES ARE NOT VALID FOR INDEPENDENTLY-ORGANISED EVENTS (usually events outside of The Beresford Hotel and The University of Sydney) – those must be registered for separately via the schedule, and subject to availability.

Limited Event Capacity –Your Insider Pass grants you priority access if you arrive before an event begins. However, we are still subject to fire and safety code restrictions, and if an event has already begun and is full we cannot provide assurance you will be allowed to enter until there is space. The best way to ensure entry to the stages and classrooms is to ARRIVE AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE EVENT BEGINS. It is a first come, first served policy.


Other Stuff – No refunds will be given on tickets if you have simply changed your mind. The pass that you receive remains the property of Social Media Week and will be revoked if anyone other than the authorised registrant attempts to use it. By purchasing a ticket or registering to attend a session, you acknowledge that your image or likeness may be appear in photography and other content related to the event, and you grant Social Media Week and its partners perpetual and unrestricted usage permissions. Passes lost after they are picked up will cost the then-current purchase price to replace. Unused pass registrations have no monetary value and cannot be credited to future years or events.
