I want to cancel my registration. Can I get a refund?
All cancellations must be received in writing so please email email@example.com. Cancellation notice received prior to 11 October will be eligible for a refund, less a NZ$150 administration fee. Cancellations after this date are non-refundable, however, you are able to transfer your registration to another person.
I only want to attend one session, can I get a session pass?
Individuals wanting to attend one session must register for a one day pass for that day. Unregistered attendees will not be allowed access to sessions or other Conference events.
I am an overseas participant and need a letter of invitation before I can receive my visa. What is the procedure?
Upon full payment of the Conference registration fees, you request an invitation letter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Invitation letters will not be supplied to unpaid or unregistered participants, and we reserve the right to refuse to provide invitation letters for attendees. Please note that we do not give any further support or advice about the visa application process. Obtaining a visa remains the sole responsibility of the participant.
My partner would like to come, but not to the Conference sessions. Is there a partner registration?
No there is no partner registration. However, you are able to purchase additional tickets for them to attend the Conference Dinner. Please note, that if you purchase a full registration these are included in the price.
Will I receive a Certificate of Attendance?
