Force Majeure (Uncontrollable Events)

In case it would become inadvisable, commercially impracticable, illegal or impossible to hold the Congress as planned for reasons that are beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to strikes or lockouts, riots, embargoes, boycott, power failures or prolonged shortage of energy supplies, fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake, acts of state or governmental action, war, armed conflict or warlike conditions including actual or apprehended terrorism, disaster, curtailment of transportation facilities (including because of weather conditions) preventing or delaying attendance by a significant number of registered participants, disease or medical epidemics or outbreaks, or any other reasons that constitute force majeure, the following conditions will apply.

We may elect one of the following remedies: (a) to cancel the Congress; or (b) to suspend the Congress for the duration of the impending circumstances; or (c) to hold the Congress as planned. In either case, any registration fees that will have been paid to us will not be refunded and we will not be responsible for any loss, damage, injury, claims, costs or expenses of any kind whatsoever by reason of any cancellation, rescheduling, postponement or alteration of the Congress. If we elect to cancel the Congress and we thereafter determine that we can cover our costs and expenses, we would to the extent possible affect the remaining funds (after accounting for a reserve fund to be determined by us) to reimburse pro rata those who would have paid registration fees. All such payments would be made after the IMRP 2016 on or before January 31, 2017.
