Can I transfer my registration to someone else at my company?

Registrations can be altered and edited up until the badge is printed. Access Intelligence recognizes the information in the registration system, NOT the confirmation e-mail, as the most current and valid information.  Substitutions may be made at any time for confirmed registrants of SATELLITE 2019; however printed badges are non-transferable once collected at the event.  Notice of substitution must be made in writing by the original registrant to register@SATShow.com or SATELLITE 2019, Attn: Registration, 9211 Corporate Blvd., 4th Floor, Rockville MD 20850.

Please note: There will be a $25 charge for badge reprints requested onsite.

Registrants who do not cancel prior to March 18, 2019 will be liable for the full registration fee. Non-payment or non-attendance does not constitute cancellation. If for any reason Access Intelligence decides to cancel or postpone this conference, Access Intelligence is not responsible for covering airfare and other travel costs incurred by the clients. Refunds due to registrant error will be charged a $199 processing fee. Discounts will not be applied to current registrations. No refunds will be granted after May 3, 2019.
