Conference registration fees and exhibit fees are non-refundable. In case of cancellation, the registrant should notify GYC, but no refund will be given.

Meal tickets may be returned as long as they are returned well before the meal is to be served. See question: Can I return my meal tickets?

No, registration tickets are not transferable from year to year. Once the conference has passed any unused tickets are no longer valid.
If you or someone in your group are not able to attend, you may transfer the ticket to another person as long as they need the same type of ticket you have. For example, a youth/chaperone ticket cannot be transferred to someone needing an adult ticket and visa versa.

Please note, you will be responsible for arranging to get the money from the person you sell the ticket to.

  1. To transfer a ticket, you must first be logged in to the registration profile of the person who currently has the ticket you are transferring.
  2. Once you have logged in to their profile, click the “Transfer” button next to the ticket.
  3. Enter the information of the person to whom you are transferring the ticket.
  4. The new person will then receive an email with a link to complete their information.

The original person’s ticket, including any meals they had, will be transferred to the new person and the original person’s ticket will then be listed as canceled. Any cost difference will not be refunded and cannot be applied towards other purchases.

The Individual registration option is best for the individual attendee ages 18+. If you are registering as a minor or as a chaperone you MUST register together in a group.

The Group registration option is designed for attendees who wish to register two or more persons together at the same time. Minors and chaperones are required to register in a group. When you use this option, all registrations must be of the same type (all Weekend or all Full conference). Groups of 5+ people can take advantage of GYC’s group discount rates listed on the prices page.

(Custom meal plans cannot be purchased during the group registration process and must be added by the individual when they complete their profile after the group registration has been completed.)
    2. DO NOT re-enter the original person’s information again as this will result in a duplicate ticket and charge them double.
  4. If there are any minors in your group you will be asked to select their chaperones on the following page. Only adults who have been selected as a chaperone on this page will be given the chaperone ticket rate.
  5. On the following page, enter your payment information. When registering as a group, you must pay for the entire group at once with one form of payment. GYC cannot accept partial payments.
  6. Before completing payment, you will be given an opportunity to Review your ticket and meal selections. If anything looks incorrect please stop and contact the registration department (registration@gycweb.org) before proceeding.

Instructions for your group members:
After you have completed payment, each group member will receive an email at the email address you listed for them with a link to complete their profile, select their t-shirt size, and make any additional meal purchases. All group members must complete their information before they will be allowed to check-in at the conference.

The max number of people allowed in one group is 40. If you have more than 40 people, make a second group for the remaining people.
