To avoid cancellation, payment must be received within 7 days of submitting online registration. Please note that registrations purchased using company checks/credit cards can be canceled by company personnel on your behalf. Registrations paid by check could experience a delayed processing time due to COVID-19. If payments have not been received within 7 days, the NIC registrar will contact you for a status update before initializing cancellation.

Replacement of a registered conference attendee by a business colleague/co-worker within the same company and professional category will be accepted. An $85 processing fee will apply to all substitutions. Substitution requests may be submitted in writing to the NIC Registrar at registrar@nic.org until October 1, 2020.

Bulk Discounts

25-34 or more = 15% off code
35-40 more = 20% off code
40+ = 25% off code

Please note: bulk discounts cannot be combined with other discounts (e.g., sponsorship discounts) – they only apply to paid registrations.

To receive a bulk discount, you must obtain a code on behalf of your organization by e-mailing NIC’s Registrar at registrar@nic.org.

NIC will not automatically apply the discount to those who are registering from your organization. It is the responsibility of the organization to inform individuals of the code that was provided and for individuals to enter the code during the time of registration.

By using the multi-discount code, you agree that your registration goes towards meeting the minimum requirement to receive the allocated percentage off. If the company utilizing the multi-discount fails to meet the minimum requirement, NIC reserves the right to invoice/charge the card on file of each registrant to meet the full registration rate offered at the time of the registration. Multi-discount registrations resulting in a balance due are subject to cancellation/restricted access to the event platform and conference resources if balances are not paid in full by September 28, 2020.

NIC’s multi-discounts are not retroactive. Registrants must present the offer when prompted during the registration process to receive the discount. Limit one code per customer.
