Please be aware that if you register after March 12, it’s likely that special-diet meals will not be available.
All catering is arranged in advance, with final catering numbers given to the hotel at least seven days before the event so the hotel can order the necessary food. We always order extra special-diet meals, but these are given out on a first-come first-served basis. If you have severe restrictions and are registering after March 12, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SEJ will make every effort to accommodate special dietary needs. However, we can’t guarantee that your needs will be met for every meal. Please approach all meals with your usual caution.
If you cancel your registration in writing to email@example.com by March 12, you’ll receive a full refund. After March 12, you’ll receive 50% back until March 18. No refunds after March 18. Nonattendance does not constitute cancellation. Substitutions may be made before March 18. Attendees who fail to abide by SEJ’s COVID-19 Protocols will not be eligible for a refund. If you receive a positive COVID-19 test within 10 days of the conference, you should not attend #SEJ2024 and a full refund will be provided. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
