“Risk Free Registrataion” – Transition to Virtual Only & Registration Refund Policy

We are continuously and closely working with our event venue partner, Apella, as well as following CDC guidelines to promote a comfortable, safe and enjoyable community. See our health & safety protocolShould it be necessary for Dealmakers Forums LLC to transition the event to a virtual only experience with no in-person component, we will notify all attendees registered with the hybrid, or all-access, ticket which provides entry to the in-person and virtual event experiences.  

In the event of transition to fully virtual, your hybrid/all-access ticket will be automatically rolled over to a virtual only event ticket at a rate of $795, and the balance will be made available to you as credit for a future Dealmakers event. Alternatively, you may request a full or partial refund or credit to be used at a future Dealmakers event. You must submit your request in writing at [email protected] within 10 business days of the notification of transition to virtual.
