It is solely your responsibility to comply with any government visa requirements and failure to do so does not constitute a basis for a refund.

Although every effort is made to ensure that the material related to Event, such as maps, agendas, programs, etc. are distributed to all attendees, IFA does not guarantee a copy of such materials to every attendee.

IFA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) refuse to accept or to retain any person as a registrant of the Event, at any time in its sole discretion, and (ii) make such alterations to the program, or any part of it, in any manner and at any time as it deems necessary or desirable.

Specifically relating to COVID and other infections, attendee acknowledges the highly contagious nature of these diseases and voluntarily assumes the risk of exposure or infection by attending the Event, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, disability, and/or death to attendee. Attendee understands that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID or another illness at the Event may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of others who may attend the event or their families, colleagues, or others with whom they may have contact. Accordingly, attendee understands and agrees that this release includes any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the IFA, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID or another infection occurs before, during, or after participation in the Event.

Miscellanous
The IFA’s failure to exercise any right shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights. The IFA shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations where such failure results from any cause beyond The IFA’s reasonable control. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary for this Agreement to otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with the IFA’s prior written consent. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of California and the parties shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and State courts located in the County of San Luis Obispo in the State of California. A party that substantially prevails in an action brought under this Agreement is entitled to recover from the other party its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you acknowledge that you do not have any authority of any kind to bind the IFA in any respect whatsoever.

Cancellations, Substitutions and Lost Badge Policy
Health-related cancellations: If you decide not to attend an in-person event due to a documented health concern, you won't face any cancellation fees. Instead, you'll receive a full account credit for the attendance fees paid.

Non-health-related cancellations: If you need to cancel your attendance for reasons unrelated to health, on or before 30 days prior to the event, an account credit for the attendance fees paid, minus a 20% cancellation fee, will be applied to your account. If you cancel within 30 days of the event, no refunds will be issued. However, you may freely substitute attendee names from your organization without any penalty.

Please make sure to review the specific cancellation policies for each event listed, as they may have unique terms and may supersede the cancellation policies stated above.

If you have unused account credits sitting on your account for more than two years, they will be considered contributions to our organization and will no longer be available to you for use.

If you are unable to attend the conference we welcome substitute attendees attending in your place at no extra cost.
