Deadlines & Policies
Early Registration Deadlines:
The final day to take advantage of early registration discounts is March 11, 2013. After this date, rates return to regular pricing.
You may still save even after the March 11 deadline by registering before May 4, 2013, when increased late registration rates go into effect.
On-line registrations: All on-line registrations will be immediately confirmed via email to the attendee email address provided. You are able to enter a second email for a duplicate copy of the registration confirmation.
Fax or mail registrations: All fax or mail registrations will be confirmed via email upon receipt if an email address is provided.
Registrations that do not provide an email address will NOT be sent a confirmation.
Cancellations, Refunds, and Substitutions:
All cancellations and requests for refunds must be submitted to AWEA in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to (508) 743-9621. Refunds may not be processed until after the completion of the conference.
All refund requests received by April 1, 2013 will be processed less a $100 administrative fee.
There will be no refunds made for cancellations after April 1 or for no-shows and registration fees may not be transferred to a different AWEA event. However, substitutions are permitted for no charge. Email information on substitutions to email@example.com.
No special events (Technical Training Courses, Opening Reception, or Conference Dinner) can be refunded after Friday, April 26 even if the remainder of the registration will be used.
No downgrades (for example from a main conference to an exhibition only) will be possible after Friday, April 26 although you may “upgrade” your registration to a higher registration category (for example exhibition only to one-day conference) after this time.
Any refunds to credit card payments may only be credited back to the original credit card and cannot be refunded to a different card.
