Cancellation Policy

UL and IWCS take a financial risk by guaranteeing a certain number of room nights in order that the hotel will offer attractive rates. If Attendees do not support UL and IWCS by making your reservations within this Group Contract, losses can result, which must be made up in registration fees for the conference. Kindly keep this in mind when booking and do not book more rooms than needed, only to cancel at the last moment when the rooms cannot be resold. UL and IWCS are held liable.

Reservations may be cancelled without penalty up until the cut-off date of March 10, 2018.  However, cancellation of your reservation after the cut-off date and 48 hours prior to 4pm (16:00) on the check-in date (local hotel time), will result in a cancellation charge equivalent to the deposit amount for the 1st night of your reservation.

Guaranteed reservations cancelled less than 48 hours prior to 4pm (16:00) on the check-in date (local hotel time), or no-shows, will result in a cancellation charge equivalent to the full duration of stay.  Guaranteed reservations will be held until 12pm Noon (12:00) on the second day of the reservation and, thereafter, released for re-sale by the hotel.

Unless the hotel is notified prior to check-in, early departures will be charged for the full duration as originally reserved.

Warning: IWCS has not authorized any third party contractor to offer discounted hotel rooms to Exhibitors or Registrants. Please be aware that such offers might be fraudulent.
