Refund Policy

Refunds are generally not allowed since most of the cost for the registration fee is consumed by non-recoupable expenses such as service fees and food orders that are confirmed and invoiced in advanced based upon anticipated attendance. Nonetheless, consideration may be given for partial refunds on a case-by-case petition basis if cancellation due to an emergency occurs prior to the start of the conference.
