IBTN Conference 2022 – Refund Policy

Refunds for Conference Activity Fees

Please note that the IBTN cannot assume responsibility for any losses or fees related to the cost of accommodations and/or travel in case of a registrant falling ill or otherwise being unable to attend due to circumstances outside of our control (pandemic, war, etc.). We can only help registrants recoup costs of their conference registration as outlined here.

In-Person Registration Fees

We issue refunds for in-person conference registration fees and dinner event tickets provided that the request for refund is received before 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2022 (EST). No refunds will be issued after this date. A $50 (CAD) administration charge may apply and will be subtracted from the reimbursement amount. Please note that sale taxes and transactions fees charged by the Grenadine payment system are not reimbursable.

In the case of a pandemic-related shutdown that forces the IBTN 2022 Conference Team to cancel in-person activities, those registered for in-person attendance will have the option to downgrade their registration status and opt to attend the conference virtually. In such case, the IBTN 2022 Conference Web Team will reimburse in-person registrants the in-person portion of their registration fees minus sale taxes and transaction fees charged by the Grenadine payment system which are not reimbursable.

Downgrading to Virtual Registration

In-person registrants who wish to downgrade their registration status in order to attend virtually for any reason not related to a pandemic shutdown will need to submit their request for a change of status and refund before 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2022 (EST). No refunds will be issued after this date. The IBTN 2022 Conference Web Team will reimburse in-person registrants the in-person portion of their registration fees in keeping with the confines of the Grenadine payment system that holds back sale taxes and transaction fees. A $20 (CAD) administration charge may apply and will be subtracted from the reimbursement amount.

Virtual Registration Fees

We issue refunds for virtual conference registration fees provided that the request for refund is received before 11:59 p.m. on May 12, 2022 (EST). No refunds will be issued after this date. Refunds will equal 50% of the original virtual registration fees minus sale taxes and transaction fees charged by the Grenadine payment system which are not reimbursable.

PROCESSING TIME

Refunded amounts will be credited to the credit card used for the purchase.
