Conference Hotel Accommodations

NN/g's discounted room rate is available only through online registration, and does not include tax. The rate will be valid between August 22 and August 29, 2014 and is subject to availability. We recommend that you register as early as possible.


Payment Policy

Your registration is not complete until full payment is received. If your company requires an invoice, please use either the printable invoice or the e-mail confirmation you will receive following online registration. Both will include the dates, the events you have registered for, and the conference fee. The Nielsen Norman Group has contracted USMotivation, a conference-management firm, to handle all billing and customer service for this event.


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 August 1, 2014. After that, the refund is 50%. No refunds will be granted after August 8, 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 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.
