If you must cancel, please notify the conference registrar in writing by the Early Bird deadline, July 15, 2022. You will receive a refund for the package you chose, less a $250 cancellation fee. Cancellations made after the Early Bird deadline as well as "no-shows" are liable for the full registration fee.
In the event that Visual Studio Live! Microsoft HQ is canceled by 1105 Media, Inc., registrants will receive an event credit/refund for their registration fees. Cancellations of travel reservations and hotel reservations made directly with a hotel are the responsibility of the attendee.
If you are unable to attend for any reason, you are responsible for canceling your own room reservations directly with the hotel at least 72 hours in advance of check-in, or you will be subject to penalties and fees by the hotel.
If you purchased the 5-Day, 4-Day, or 3-Day Hotel Package, we will cancel your registration for you upon your written request to our Conference Registrar at [email protected]. If your cancellation is received after the July 15 deadline, full hotel charges may apply.
