Tickets

What ticket should I buy?

Most people should buy an Individual ticket. If your company is paying, they shoud use the Corporate rate (or the Concierge rate for more flexibility; see below). For those who can't afford the Individual ticket, a discounted ticket is available; see below. And for those who want to go above and beyond and support our mission, check out the Patron ticket.

Individual: Companies with 5 or fewer employees, or those purchasing their own ticket without any help from their employer.

Corporate: Companies with more than 5 employees. State or government institutions and non-profit organizations should use the corporate rate if they are able.

Patron: Every year, particularly generous attendees ask how they can pay extra for their ticket to help us expand our mission. This year, we're introducing this ticket type just for you. The cost difference will be put toward conference expenses that increase access to the conference, such as the financial aid fund and video captioning. Ticket holders of this type will also be invited to a special "thank you" event at the conference.

Corporate Concierge Service: Companies who want to purchase several tickets in advance, but decide who will be attending the conference at a later date, or companies who cannot pay by credit card. We'll send you a registration code your employees can use to register when you're ready. We will also send you a paper invoice for record-keeping if you need.

Discounted: If you’re unemployed, on a lower income, or would benefit from a lower-priced ticket for another reason. If your company is paying for your ticket, you are not eligible for this ticket type.

Tutorials: They are a separate cost from your conference ticket. You can register for a tutorial without registering for the conference itself.

Sprints: The ticket is free, but we ask you to register so we can buy you lunch. You do not have to register for the conference itself to register for sprints.

What is the refund policy?

We would hate for you to miss the conference! But we know things come up, so here's our refund policy:

  • Refunds requested by September 30, 2018 incur a 10% cancellation fee.
  • Between October 1 and October 7, 2018, the cancellation fee is 25%.
  • Between October 8 and October 13, 2018, the cancellation fee is 50%.
  • Tickets may be transferred to someone else at no charge by October 13, 2018, for tutorials and October 14 for the conference.

For all dates the cutoff is on or before 5:00 PM PDT per the time stamp on DEFNA’s servers.

We hope to see you in San Diego!
