NAME BADGE POLICIES

Name badges and any applicable tickets purchased will be issued to each registered attendee on-site; Badges must remain visible at all times during Frontiers in Medical Devices Conference proceedings and are non-transferrable. BMES reserves the right to confiscate any badge being worn by an individual other than the named attendee without refund, re-issuance or re-admittance into the conference. In the event that an attendee damages, loses or forgets their badge during the meeting, there will be a non-refundable $25 reprint fee assessed for a replacement badge; only one replacement name badge will be issued. Event tickets (if applicable) will not be replaced if lost on-site. 
 


CANCELLATION/REFUND INFORMATION

Requests for registration cancellation must be received by registrar@bmes.org in writing no later than January 29, 2019 in order for a refund to be processed.* Refund requests will not be honored after 01/29. Registrations purchased after 01/29 are non-refundable. Phone cancellations are strictly prohibited, and cancellation requests sent via mail, fax or emailed to any inbox other than registrar@bmes.org will not be reviewed. All refunds are subject to a $50 cancellation fee. Attendee substitutions are not permitted and meeting registrations cannot be transferred from one person to another. Due to the immediate availability of member-only benefits, membership dues payments are final and will not be refunded.

*Non-attending (no-show) registrants will not be refunded unless they are unable to make it to the 2019 Frontiers in Medical Devices Conference due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. airline initiated flight cancellations; medical emergencies & injuries sustained by the registrant or an immediate family member; natural disasters; court/jury duty summons; military personnel deployment; death of a parent, spouse, sibling, or grandparent). These registrants must submit verifiable documentation of the extraordinary circumstances which caused their absence via email to registrar@bmes.org prior to the conclusion of the conference. Reasonable verification includes, but is not limited to, notice of flight cancellation provided by your airline; an injury report or physician’s note issued by a licensed practitioner; copy of your official court/jury duty summons; military orders; obituary, etc. Failure to submit both the required documentation and no-show cancellation correspondence to registrar@bmes.org by C.O.B. on March 21 will result in 100% forfeiture of all registration fees paid, regardless of circumstances surrounding the absenteeism—no exceptions.
