Your registration will be valid for both formats of the Conference.

·         In the event the Conference is cancelled or postponed by TICT for Force Majeure or COVID Event reasons, TICT shall not under any circumstances be liable to attendees for any damages, costs or losses incurred in connection with the Conference such as transportation costs, accommodation costs or any other forms of financial loss.
