Selfcare Summit Terms & Conditions

Hotel Policy

All sellers (suppliers/manufacturers) are required to book a hotel reservation at the JW Marriott Indianapolis. The deadline to book a hotel reservation is August 30th, 2019. Sellers that have not booked a hotel room at the JW Marriott Indianapolis by the determined date, will be charged an additional $500 off-premises registration fee (on-site registration materials including badges will not be distributed until this off-premises fee is paid). If attendees book housing in the hotel and later cancel their reservation, the additional $500 fee will be automatically assessed and charged upon pick up of participant's on-site registration materials.

There are many advantages to staying on-premises during the Summit. Among these is the convenience of not commuting each morning and evening, as no transportation or parking is provided for off-premises stays. The many opportunities to network during receptions, breakfasts, lunches, and our evening networking added advantages, and certainly more convenient to those staying on-premises.

Exceptions to this policy may apply. Contact GMDC for further information.

Registration Cancellation and Refund Policy

A 50% refund will be considered if a written request for registration cancellation is submitted on or before the Summit registration deadline of Friday, July 12, 2019. Refunds will not be approved for any cancellation requests received after the Summit registration deadline of Friday, July 12, 2019. All requests should be sent to [email protected].
