Conference Hotel Accommodations
Nielsen Norman Group has negotiated a discounted room rate of € 209 per night plus city tax (inclusive of breakfast and in-room internet), valid between the 27th of March and 6th of April, 2014 and is subject to availability. We recommend that you book as early as possible.
Your registration is not complete until full payment is received. Delegates are responsible for any fiscal or legal requirements of their own country. EU law says that all delegates from the Netherlands must pay VAT on conference registrations. The Nielsen Norman Group has contracted Incentive Europe, a conference management firm, to handle all billing and customer service for this event. Each delegate will be sent a VAT invoice which is issued in Euros and must be paid in full in that currency.
Cancellation, Substitution, and Refund Policy
If you must cancel after registering, your registration fee will be refunded less a 20% handling fee, provided that written notice of cancellation is received by March 7, 2014. After that, the refund is 50%. No refunds will be granted after March 14, 2014, but we will accept a substitute attendee if we receive a written note from the registered attendee stating his or her intention to transfer registration to a named individual. Email email@example.com with cancellation, substitution, or refund requests.
Speaker Substitutions and Course Cancellations
We reserve the right to substitute speakers, cancel seminars, or cancel the entire event. In such cases, our liability is limited to refunding the registration fees you have paid for the affected days. Speakers may need to be substituted in case of illness, accidents, airline problems, or other issues that prevent a scheduled speaker from presenting as planned. We will endeavor to get a substitute speaker, but this may not always be possible because of the expertise required and the short notice available in most such cases.
