Cancellations & Refunds:

With the possibility of future COVID-19 related travel restrictions, personal and institutional reasons may impact the ability for registered delegates to participate in the conference.


RMIT acknowledges this, but we do need to be able to recoup certain costs, which will be incurred by us in preparation for all conference attendances and participation, regardless of subsequent cancellations.


This is the cancellation and refund process for delegates who have registered and paid for their attendance but who are no longer able to attend.


Delegates that cancel registration on or before the 16th of June 2020 (i.e. 20 days prior) will receive a full refund of registration costs paid, plus a refund of the amount paid for the conference dinner and any additional program purchases.


Delegates that cancel their registration after 16th June 2020 and up to ten days before the conference will receive a partial refund of 75% of the registration costs paid. But there will be no refund of any additional costs paid such as the conference dinner or any side program costs.


Delegates that cancel registration on and after 26th June 2020 will receive no refund on registration or any other additional costs paid.
