Cancellation and Refund Policy for Event Registrations

Any main event or pre-conference day event registration cancellations occurring before the cancellation deadline of 14 days calendar days before the event, 100% of the registration fee will be refunded, minus a $150 processing fee. If you cancel a pre-conference day registration before the cancellation deadline but still go to the main event, we will refund you for the amount of the pre-conference day event you registered for.

No refunds will be issued for cancellations occurring after the cancellation deadline. However, you may transfer your main conference, workshop or intensive day registration to another person.
For reasons beyond our control, it is occasionally necessary to alter the content and timing of the program or to substitute speakers. Thus, the speakers and agenda are subject to change without notice. In case of a speaker cancellation, we will try to find a replacement speaker.
