6. EVENT / TICKET CHANGES:
6A. REFUND AND CANCELLATION POLICY
All purchases of tickets/packages and invoices for sponsorship for conferences and events (including hotel rooms if applicable) are not cancelable and non-refundable in their entirety. Your ticket/package remains the property of PMWC LLC and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission refused at any time upon a refund of the printed registration/package price PMWC LLC will not be responsible for any tickets that are lost or stolen. In the event that an attendee’s visa is not granted tickets/packages will not be refunded for any event or conference. If an individual seeks a refund on general attendee tickets that were purchased before their startup ticket was purchased, PMWC LLC will not grant a full refund when the general attendee ticket price has increased beyond the startup ticket price. Name changes will be facilitated free of charge up to 30 days prior to the commencement of the event so long as the complete information is provided for whom the ticket is requested to be transferred to. No name changes will be facilitated 30 days prior to the commencement of the event and the ticket price will be forfeited. If you have been selected to volunteer at the event but have already bought a ticket, you are not eligible for a refund. (i) For ANY REASON, you may transfer a PMWC LLC ticket to a future PMWC LLC, without fee, by the 1st day of the month prior to the event dates(ex. May 1st for June event). A ticket may also be transferred to another person who qualifies under the same ticket type by the same deadline. Notify [email protected] before then. Limit of 1 transfer per ticket/benefit. (ii) PMWC LLC has a generous transfer policy, to allow you to move conferences for any reason as long as by deadline but there are no Refunds. (iii) Outside of the above transfer policy, the only transfer that can be made is in the event the conference is moved to a new date in which all tickets/exhibits/etc benefits would automatically be moved to the new dates without an extension to the transfer policies. For questions about registration or assistance with any registration problems, please contact us at [email protected]
6B. SPONSORSHIP/SPEAKING/EXHIBITING CHANGES AND CANCELATIONS
PMWC does not authorize or permit ANY changes to benefits/packages/speaking/exhibiting/sponsorship commitments including downsizing an exhibit, forgoing an exhibit for any reason, canceling or not showing up for a scheduled speaking engagement. Failure of this will lead to the forgoing of all benefits at PMWC conferences/events as well as a penalty, subject to PMWC LLC’s discretion if this takes place within 90 days of the conference/event. The Penalty may exceed the original package/sponsorship rate and is at PMWC LLC’s discretion.
6C. EVENT CANCELLATION, POSTPONEMENT & SUBSTITUTION POLICY
PMWC LLC is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation or postponement of an event. An event date change will not constitute grounds for a refund, see PMWC transfer policy. In the unlikely event of cancellation of a conference or event the liability of PMWC LLC is limited to the share of paid registration/package fees that remains after credit card and payment processing fees have been incurred and deducted. PMWC LLC shall assume no liability whatsoever in the circumstances that an event is canceled, rescheduled or postponed due to a fortuitous event, Act of God, pandemic, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of an event impracticable, illegal or impossible. For purposes of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include, but not be limited to: war, fire, labor strike, pandemic, extreme weather or other emergency. Please note that while speakers and topics are confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organizers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. As such, PMWC LLC reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or topics if necessary without any liability to you whatsoever. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible.
Further clarification on conference dates and movement. In the event the conference dates have been changed the tickets/exhibit/sponsorship/etc benefits will be automatically applied to the new conference dates for the same benefits as determined by PMWC. A date movement will not constitute grounds for a refund. If you would want to transfer the benefits instead to another future PMWC conference then see the transfer policy of PMWC’s terms and conditions for further details. An example of an agent for conference date movement would be COVID-19.
7. UNACCEPTABLE ACTION/BEHAVIOR AND RECOURSE
It is strictly forbidden for any company, organization or attendee to attempt to host or organize any event in conjunction with, contiguous to or purporting to be related to PMWC or its affiliates without the express prior permission and co-operation of PMWC LLC. In the event of breach of these terms any tickets/packages purchased by the organizer and their affiliates will be rendered null and void. PMWC LLC reserves their right to take such legal action including a claim for damages as may be appropriate.
