• Registrations will only be accepted and processed when payment, or an approved government purchase order, is included.

• Confirmations will be emailed after May 4, 2018.

• Registrations, or changes to registrations, will not be accepted over the phone as this does not provide an accurate record of the request.

• To be included in the Conference Attendees List, registrations must be received no later than June 8, 2018.


Payment Policy – Please read carefully!

• All payments sent to the IEDC office must be received by June 8, 2018 or registrants will be required to resolve unpaid balances onsite (excluding those with government purchase orders).

• Conference attendees with a balance due will be required to remit payment before being admitted to the conference, with the exception of those attendees paying by government purchase order.

• If a copy of your purchase order was not forwarded to IEDC, please present it at the onsite registration desk.


Cancellation, Refund and No-show Policy

• Substitutions will be accepted at any time.

• There will be no refunds or credits for cancellations after June 1, 2018.

• All cancellation requests must be in writing and can be emailed or sent to IEDC.

• All registered attendees cancelling their registration, will be charged a $95 processing fee, regardless of when the written cancellation notice was received.

• Cancellation requests received by IEDC prior to close of business on Friday, June 1, 2018 will have their registration fees refunded or credited to a future IEDC event, less the $95 processing fee.

• A registrant who does not submit a written cancellation, or attend the conference, is considered a "No Show". No-Shows are not eligible for refunds or credits, and are still liable for outstanding balances.
