Event Cancellation or Changes by ATTA
The Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) reserves the right to cancel, postpone, or reschedule in its sole discretion an event, whether in-person or virtual, due to low registrations. If ATTA voluntarily cancels an event due to low registrations, delegates will be offered a full or partial refund. If ATTA postpones or reschedules an event due to low registrations, ATTA in its sole discretion will 1) provide an account credit, or 2) transfer registration to the same or similar event at a future date. Note that this cancellation and refund policy does not apply to cancellation due to Force Majeure.
ATTA also has the right to postpone, suspend, cancel, or reschedule an event, whether in-person or virtual, at any time, in its sole discretion in the event of Force Majeure and 1) provide an account credit, or 2) transfer registration to the same or similar event at a future date. No refunds, whether partial or full, will be made if ATTA postpones, suspends, cancels or reschedules an event because of Force Majeure.
In-Person Event Registration Cancellation or Transfer by Delegate:
Co-Worker Transfer Policy: Registered delegates may transfer their event registration to a co-worker at no charge if an official transfer request form has been submitted 61 or more days before the event. Within 60 days of the event, ATTA may charge a co-worker transfer fee ($150 for an In-Person Event and $75 for all other events).
Cancellation by Delegate Policy: While the ATTA strongly encourages delegates to first consider transferring their registration to a co-worker, delegates may elect to cancel their registration and receive an account credit for the amount of the registration fees paid. Cancellation requests submitted up to 61 days before anIn-Person Event via our official cancellation request form will receive account credit equal to the full amount paid. If the cancellation is received within 60 days of the event, the account credit will be given for the original amount paid less a cancellation fee ($250 for an In-Person Event and $125 for all other events). Account credits will be available for future purchases with the ATTA.
Refund Request by Delegate Policy: No refunds will be given within 120 days before an In-Person Event; please plan accordingly. Full refunds are available if requested 121 days or more before anIn-Person Event provided that there is not a volume of similar refund requests that it would make it financially detrimental for ATTA to provide refunds as ATTA determines in its sole discretion. In this situation, ATTA will provide an account credit or transfer registration to the same or similar event at a future date. Cancellations will be accepted by completing an official cancellation request form.
Event Registration Cancellation May Change by Event: Each In-Person Event may have different transfer/refund/cancellation policies. You may see specific event transfer/refund/cancellation policies on each event’s registration page – which supersedes transfer/refund/cancellation policies on this page.
Virtual Event Cancellation/Refund by Delegate:
Cancellation/Refund Request by Delegate Policy — at least 24 hours before event start time: You may cancel your registration up to 24 hours before the virtual event begins and request a full refund of your virtual event registration fee by emailing [email protected]
Cancellation/Refund Request by Delegate Policy — within 24 hours before event start time: We are unable to provide refunds within 24 hours of the event start time. If you paid your virtual event registration fee but did not attend the event for any reason, you will not receive a refund. Please watch for a post-event email with information on how to access available event recordings.
Co-Worker Transfer Policy: We are unable to provide registration transfers for virtual events. We can provide a refund, per the policies noted above, and then your co-worker may register on their own.
If you are unhappy with the ATTA virtual event, please contact [email protected] to discuss further.
