Event Cancellation by MPI

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) reserves the right to cancel an event due to low enrollment or other circumstances which would make the event non-viable. If MPI cancels an event, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in the postponement of an event, MPI has the right to either issue a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at the new, future date. MPI will not be responsible for reimbursement of any participant’s expenses related to the cancellation or postponement of an event.

Registration Cancellations

Deadline to cancel your WEC registration and get a partial refund is Friday, May 27. Cancellations must be received by the stated cancellation deadline and will be accepted in writing only. Cancellations received after the stated deadline will not be eligible for a refund. Cancellation fees of up to $200 will be deducted from the registration fee. No shows for the event will not receive a refund.   All refund requests must be made by the registered attendee or credit card holder and include the name of the attendee and/or transaction number. Refunds will be issued via the original payment method used, no later than (30) days after cancellation has been approved. Please send written cancellations to  wecreg@mpi.org .

  • Discount or special promotion codes are only available on new registrations, refunds are not available to any existing registrations   

Travel Restrictions

In the event that travel restrictions are imposed in the country where the registrant is traveling from, that prohibits the in-person attendance of WEC, MPI will work with you to put the value of registration toward an event or product of equal value.

Substitution of registration (same type: member/non-member) is permitted prior to June 1, 2022. Only one substitution is permitted per original registrant with written consent. The individual submitting the substitution request is responsible for all financial obligations associated with that substitution as well as updating any contact/demographic information. Please email substitution requests to  wecreg@mpi.org .

Duty of Care

While COVID-19 will remain with us for the foreseeable future, we are now better positioned to live with the virus in ways that it does not have to upend our lives. Vaccines and treatments aimed at preventing severe illness in people at higher risk and testing are widely available. We will be guided by the data and science on the public health decisions we make moving forward.

We aim to implement the less restrictive COVID-19 measures within our local context that keep our communities safe and preserve lives, and continue to prioritize our COVID-19 resources, including vaccinations, testing, and masks, to highly impacted communities.

Following the city and state recommendations and starting on April 1, MPI will not require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test to enter Moscone West.
