There is a pandemic taking place involving COVID-19, as announced by the World Health Organization in March 2020. Given that currently there is no reliable information or data available to provide any reasonable expectation as to when the pandemic will likely subside in and around CPC’s location:

• If the COVID-19 pandemic has continued such that there are government (local or national) imposed restrictions or recommendations on maximum meeting size and such restrictions or recommendations would apply to CPC within 60 days prior to the event dates, or if there are recommended travel advisories issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within 60 days prior to CPC23 advising against non-essential domestic travel within the US to or from the Coronado that would materially impact CPC23, you may transfer or cancel your ticket in accordance with the Cancellation Policy above, but no deferrals to a subsequent CPC event will be permitted.

• If applicable government restrictions related to COVID-19 do not prohibit CPC or do not prevent travel to CPC, but do mandate wearing of masks or social distancing, you agree in good faith to adhere to applicable government requirements.


The Terms & Conditions found in this document constitute the entire agreement of INCM and Attendee with respect to CPC23 (in person or online) and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding CPC23 (in person or online).
