Is it possible to attend only one day of the conference?

You can decide if you want to attend the first day, second day, or both days however the registration fee covers both days. A link to register for the conference will be shared shortly.

What is the cancellation policy?

We do not offer full refunds at any time, and as the event gets closer the amount of payment refunded gets smaller. This is due to the fact that the event is planned around the number of attendees registered and upon cancellation, the changing number of attendees alters the conference as a whole.

The refund policy is as follows:

  • Attendees ​canceling ​their ​registration ​before 3 months until the conference days will ​receive ​a ​75% ​ ​refund.
  • Attendees ​canceling ​their ​registration between ​​one month to three months ​before the conference days will ​​receive ​a ​50% ​refund. ​
  • No ​refunds ​will ​be ​permitted ​for ​cancellations ​made ​a month before the conference days.
