Science|Business cancellation, postponement, and substitution Policy 


  • You may substitute delegates at any time by providing reasonable advance notice to Science|Business. 

  • For any cancellations received in writing not less than eight (8) days prior to the conference, you will receive a 90% credit to be used at another Science|Business conference or towards content subscription, which must occur within one year from the date of issuance of such credit. An administration fee of 10% of the contract fee will be retained by Science|Business for all permitted cancellations. 

  • No credit will be issued for any cancellations occurring within seven (7) days (inclusive) of the conference.
