Banknote Conference put the health and welfare of participants and the local host community at the forefront of its decision making. The increasing risk assessment regarding the spread and the travel restrictions that are changing daily led us to take this decision. We are also aware that domestic and international restrictions being imposed were impacting the ability of many colleagues to attend.
Instead of cancelling the event, the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Hotel has supported us to postpone the Banknote Conference to November 2-5, 2020.
You will only need to reschedule your airfare and hotel reservations. Your registration has been carried forward. You will not need to re-register yourself for the conference. You will receive a new registration confirmation email with the new dates soon.
No, travel and associated expenses are not refundable. We kindly ask you to seek advice and compensation through your own travel insurance or travel agent. We encourage you to call your airline and explain the situation to change your ticket bookings. We apologize for the inconvenience and challenges this may cause you.
