  • What are Networx events?

    Networx Marketers Meetings delivers educational and inspirational business events to people in business. Launched in 1999 by founder Kimberley Palmer, Networx was an answer to a lack of affordable and relevant networking opportunities that was perceived for motivated, successful people in the developing stages of their career.

    For attendees, Networx is a fun way to meet other professional people and hear from - and perhaps be inspired by - speakers covering a broad range of business related topics. For sponsors, Networx offers a unique way to tap into a market of motivated professionals. Built on an opt-in model, with people being referred by others they know, this group is highly responsive to the Networx and those that support the group.

  • Can I book more than one person online?

    Definitely! Simply provide their contact details so we know who's coming and can prepare correspondence and name badges on the night. We'll need their Name, Position, Oganisation and Email details.

    Please advise as soon as possible if details change, or another person is substituting a booked attendee.

  • What are the payment methods when buying tickets?

    Pre-registration & pre-payment before an event is essential. The preferred method is to book your event tickets online and pay by credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express). It is easy to book on another person's behalf if required.  We do not charge credit fees. A receipt will be emailed to you after payment is processed successfully.

    If you wish to pay by Direct Deposit or Cheque, a tax invoice can be requested. Other payment methods include:

    • Cheque: To be made payable to Iceberg Events
    • Direct Deposit:  Please put the Invoice ID# in the reference field.  Once completed, please email a payment confirmation so a receipt can be issued.
      • Account Name: Iceberg Events
      • Bank: Suncorp BSB: 484799
      • Account Number: 003668551

    Please note, payment prior to the event is essential.  If you have not paid prior to the event and you cancel on the day of the event, or do not show up, you will still be liable as we would have confirmed your attendance.

  • What happens after I've booked my ticket/s?

    When you book online, a tax invoice will appear on the webpage after your payment has been processed.  It will also be emailed to the nominated email address, or account holder if logged in.  Please print this off for your records, or forward to your accounts person.

    A confirmation email will also be emailed to each Attendee.

  • What is the difference between Iceberg Events and Networx Marketers Meetings (Brisbane)?

    Networx Marketers Meetings (Brisbane) is managed by Iceberg Events, a Brisbane-based conference and events management company.  

    Please note that Networx events in Brisbane and Sydney are managed separately.  When booking, please make sure you book for the correct location as ticket transfers between each city is strictly not possible.

  • What is the difference between Networx Sydney and Networx Brisbane?

    Whilst we share the same umbrella brand of Networx Marketers Meetings, the organisations that manage Networx Sydney and Networx Brisbane are separate entitites.

    Networx Brisbane is managed by Icebeg Events, a Brisbane-based conference and events management company.  ABN 84 084 581 153

    Networx Sydney is managed by Double Edge PR, a Sydney-based PR firm.  ABN 45 060 187 822

    So when booking tickets, you must check the location carefully.  Accidentally booking a ticket for an event in the wrong city doesn't allow you to 'transfer' the ticket to the correct city.

  • What is the cancellation / substitution / refund policy?

    3 or more business day prior to an event: 
    3 business days notice required for refunds. Please give written notice to nxbris@networxevents.com.au.  Refunds will incur a $5 administration fee. 

    Less than 3 business days prior to an event: 
    If unable to attend, a substitute is welcome, please advise their details as soon as possible.  Tickets are not transferable to another event.

    If you have not paid for your ticket prior to the event:
    In the instance that you have booked your ticket(s) and not paid prior to the event, you are still liable to pay for the ticket(s) if you attend or not.  You will be emailed an outstanding Tax Invoice prior to the event, and post event if it has still not been paid.  If you know you are unable to attend, please put your cancellation in writing 3 or more business days prior to the event for a refund less admin fee.  Please ensure that we have replied to you so that you know it has been received.

    In the event of event cancellation: 
    (for instance, the venue has no power due to a freak storm), an email will be sent to registered attendees and a notification will be posted on the event webpage, Facebook and Twitter. A refund may be issued or ticket transfer may be available to another event. In the instance that the event (still) proceeds, we are unable to refund the ticket price or transfer tickets as the event has proceeded and costs have made to the venue.

  • Can I transfer my tickets to another person, or another event?

    You are welcome to transfer your ticket to another person (please let us know their details as soon as possible); however, we do not allow tickets to be transferred to another event.  Tickets are also not transferable to another city (eg. if you've booked for a Sydney event, it is not transferable to an event in Brisbane). 

  • Can I make a suggestion regarding speakers, venues or topics?

    We'd love you to!  Please send us an email with your suggestions. What we look for:

    Speakers: Engaging, interesting and entertaining.  Happy to share information, ideas and experiences with like-minded people.  Networx do not pay for speakers. 

    Venues: Funky or unique.  Happy to have a group of professionals in business, marketing and communications.  Venues that can handle a stand-up networking drinks part and then a sit-down area with theatre-style seating.  Networx events can have 80-120 attendees depending on the venue's capacity.

    Topics: Networx has standard topics that cover marketing and communications, digital and creative, but we are also after suggestions that may affect these industries.

  • How can I sponsor/support Networx Brisbane?
