FLOAT 2022's CANCELLATION POLICY
If you register for FLOAT 2022 on or before January 3rd, 2022:
If you find yourself in the position to where you can no longer attend FLOAT 2022 after completing your payment, you may still cancel your registration to FLOAT 2022 with the understanding that you are subject to a cancellation penalty of $75.00 US if you paid in one lump sum or $150.00 US if you registered under the $599 convention payment structure.
If you have made any additional purchases such as a FLOATbook, optional classes and the like, all of those fees paid are subject to a 100% refund and are not subject to penalty. As policy of the convention, if you cancel your registration to FLOAT 2022, you would not be able to purchase an Academic FLOATbook regardless, so any such purchase of this item would be automatically refunded.
Please note that the fee charged by PlanetReg.com once you register for FLOAT 2022 is non-refundable.
ANY AND ALL REGISTRATION CANCELLATION REFUND REQUESTS FOR FLOAT 2022 MUST BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN JANUARY 3, 2022.
After January 3rd, 2022:
If you are unable to attend FLOAT 2020 for any reason after January 3rd, 2022, including but not exclusive to medical issues, family emergencies, business decisions and the like, while you can cancel your registration for the convention, you will not be entitled to any refund at all from your registration fees.
If you need to cancel your registration after January 3rd, 2022, you are entitled to a refund of any additional purchases you may have made including Master and Bonus Classes, Academic FLOATbook, souvenirs, etc. However, you are also not eligible for any refunds of your PlanetReg.com charges or fees.
Transfers and Roll-Overs
Due to growing abuse factors over the past conventions, FLOAT no longer allows delegates to sell their registrations independently to others. If you are unable to attend FLOAT 2022, you need to follow the cancellation policy.
Along these lines, delegates are not allowed to sell or transfer their enrollment in optional classes at FLOAT 2022, whether it be Master Classes, Bonus Classes or Mega-Bonus Classes. If a delegate wishes to withdraw from a class or is unable to attend the convention, they should notify FLOAT management so we can arrange for a refund of said charges paid for those classes and your name released from the attendee list in that particular class(es).
Delegates are also not allowed to sell or transfer their access to the Designer Awards Gala to another attendee or guest. If a delegate at FLOAT wishes to bring a guest to the Designer Awards Gala, a guest pass needs to be purchased from the FLOAT management team prior to January 15th, 2022.
The only exception to the transfer policy is that a company is allowed to transfer a registration from one employee to another within their own company. For example, if you purchase a registration for an employee who no longer works for you as FLOAT draws closer, you can transfer that registration into the name of a different employee within your own company. However, under no circumstances will you be allowed to transfer that registration to anyone outside of your company.
Similar to our transfer policy, due to growing issues of abuse over the past two conventions, FLOAT has had to eliminate it's rollover policy. As of February 4th, 2019, FLOAT no longer allows delegates to rollover their registrations for the next convention should they be unable to attend. This is why our cancellation deadline has been extended well into January; this will allow people to collect at least a partial refund of their registration fees if they are unable to attend.
While we completely understand that you may have a very valid reason to have to cancel your registration, you also need to understand that FLOAT is dependent upon the registration fees from our delegates to cover the operating costs of the convention. Just as you have to have cancellation policies with your own clients, we do as well. The two-week deadline is absolutely our "line in the sand" as it were, so please understand that any such reasoning for these policies is not personal but rather a professional and business decision that must be made in order to protect the operation as well as the longevity of the FLOAT Convention series.
Other Issues or Policies
The FLOAT Executive Producer and production team reserve the right to make changes to the cancellation policy as needed.
