Contingency Planning

If a situation occurs which significantly affects the majority of participants’ ability to attend in person, the event may be held entirely online as was successfully done during the pandemic in 2021. In this scenario, live attendees would be given a partial refund of the price difference for the virtual ticket. By registering, you agree to attend the event virtually on the same date should this circumstance arise.
