As a result, we have implemented a risk-free registration. Once you register, if you’re still not able to attend the live event, full refunds will be available if you cancel by 1 Oct. 2021. You can also change your registration to the online experience and receive a refund for the difference in registration rates. Refund Policy: Deadline to request a full refund or transfer your registration to the online experience is Friday, 1 Oct. Cancelations must be received by the stated cancelation deadline and will be accepted in writing only. No-shows for the event will not receive a refund.
