How do I cancel my meeting registration?

All cancelation requests must be submitted via email directly to the PRS Offices.  (staff@perinatalresearchsociety.org). Cancelations requested by voicemail will not be accepted.

I need to cancel my meeting registration, is a refund available? 

Cancelation requests are your individual responsibility and must be received prior to the registration deadline (See Program and Registration page). Note we are still fully committed to paying the hotel even if your cancelations are received after that date.  For that reason we would first suggest you first consider sending a colleague or trainee in your place, and communicate the persons name to the society.

In your request, please include the following information:

Attendees Full Name

Email Address

Phone Number

Reason for Cancelation Request

What items are included in my meeting registration costs?

Our hotel contracts are structured for the Society to pay one single master contract bill for all expenses associated with the event.  Attendee costs are calculated on the guest room charge, applicable taxes charged by the hotel, all meals for the duration of the conference, refreshment breaks and receptions.  As a matter of PRS policy there are no a la carte registration packages, and where attendees opt out of events, refunds will not be issued for unattended activities or meals.
