Cancellation Policy

Cancellation of your reservation must be made at least 24-hours prior to arrival to avoid the applicable cancellation fee. However, the event organizer takes 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 the IWCS in this 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. IWCS is held liable.

Important Notes: A Visa or MasterCard credit/debit card is needed to hold your reservation. You will not be charged at the time of booking. No fee will be charged for using a credit card.
