LDP Summit Registration Terms and Conditions

Registration Process and Payment Methods

1. Conference registrations will not be confirmed until the completed form and the correct payment is received and processed by LDPC.

2. Accommodation costs are not included in the conference registration fee. Attendees are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements, where applicable.

3. LDPC cannot be responsible for your spam filters blocking your confirmation email. Please be sure to check your spam folder for appropriate communications. It is strongly suggested to whitelist the domains “LDPconnect.com.”

4. Discount pricing is available to LDP Connect members according to the pricing indicated on the website.

5. Discount codes are assigned at the discretion of LDPC. LDPC reserves the right to cancel any registrants using unauthorized discount codes.

6. Registrants should obtain confirmation before committing to travel arrangements, where applicable.

7. Capacity is limited. Registrations will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Cancellation Policy

1. The COVID-19 virus makes planning future live events uncertain. LDPC wishes to deliver a safe, in-person LDP Summit. However, due to changing circumstances and any number of complications, LDPC may, at its sole discretion, decide to make the event “full virtual,” or postpone or cancel the event completely.

2. If the event is moved to full virtual, all registrations for the in-person event will be automatically “converted” into registrations for the virtual event, and any difference in cost will be refunded (applying the same percentage discounts captured during the initial registration process – e.g. early bird rates, and membership discount percentages.)

3. If the event is postponed, registrants will be notified of the new date and given the opportunity to cancel their registrations for a full refund.

4. If the event is cancelled, all registrants will receive a full refund – subject to the limitations noted below in item 9.

5. LDPC understands that attendees require similar flexibility.

a. IN-PERSON Registrations:

i. May be cancelled as late as April 15th for a full refund

ii. May be converted to Virtual registrations (if offered) by April 15th for a refund of the price difference.

iii. May be cancelled after April 15th for a 50% refund.

b. VIRTUAL registrations (if offered)

i. May be cancelled as late as May 9th for a full refund

ii. May be converted to IN-PERSON registrations by April 15th with payment of the difference in cost

iii. Will not be refunded if cancelled after May 9th.

6. Conference registration can be cancelled only in writing to [email protected].

7. Substitutions may be made at any time. If you wish to substitute a participant, please contact [email protected] at the earliest opportunity.

8. All refunds will be made within two months of notice of cancellation.

9. If LDPC must cancel the event, its liability is limited to a full refund of the event fee only. For example, there will be no payments made to cover

a. any travel or hotel costs incurred by registrants associated with attending the event,

b. any fees relating to becoming a member of LDP Connect with the intent of securing the membership discount on Summit registration.

10. LDPC accepts no liability if an event is cancelled or postponed for reasons beyond its reasonable control resulting from an act of God, public health emergency, governmental regulation, fire, war, terrorist activity or civil commotion.

COVID-19 Acknowledgement & Disclaimer

With full knowledge of the risks associated with the COVID-19 virus, you release, waive, discharge LDPC from any and all liabilities, claims, demands, actions, and causes of action whatsoever, directly or indirectly arising out of or related to any loss, damage, injury, or death, that may be sustained by you related to COVID-19 while participating in any activity while in, on, or around the premises or while using the facilities that may lead to unintentional exposure or harm due to COVID-19.

You also agree to follow all health regulations/policies of the venue, and LDPC such as they may be determined.

Conference program
The event program is subject to change without notice. Although every effort is made to deliver the content as noted on the conference agenda, changes and omissions may be necessary.
Personal Property

LDPC accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to personal property.


Should LDPC decide to make the event virtual, virtual attendees acknowledge that a virtual event necessarily depends upon conferencing technology and access to the internet. Attendees are responsible for securing their own reliable internet access. LDPC accepts no responsibility for connection difficulties (and any resulting lack of quality to audio/video) that may result from weak or broken network access.

Membership in LDP Connect brings access to content, the community of members and discounts on LDP Connect events and products. You can review the various LDP Connect membership levels here.

LDPC reserves the right to modify the content, type, availability and requirements of entry for any membership level, and of any member benefit at any time.

Note that membership in LDP Connect is NOT currently open to
• Vendors with a commercial interest in reaching our community
• Career services professionals

These Terms cannot be varied and in proceeding to purchase the Membership you will be deemed to have accepted these “Terms.” Please be aware that we may update these Terms at any time. Your continued use of the Membership indicates your acceptance of the terms and agreement to any changes.

1.2 Membership Fees and Payment Terms

When you purchase a membership, the price will be made clear during the order process. You agree to pay the price that is stated at the time of your order. Discount eligibility is determined at the time of the order. Discounts cannot be applied retroactively. All prices are in United States Dollars, unless otherwise stated. 

LDP Connect accepts payment via all major credit cards, and in some cases by check. We reserve the right to reject any order or purchase at any time. Once we charge or debit your payment method, your membership is considered active for one year from your join date. If a credit card expires or a payment method is otherwise invalid, the member will be notified by email or phone by an LDP Connect representative. In the event of a declined card, the transaction will be cancelled.

New member applications are subject to approval by LDP Connect.  If an application is rejected, any membership fees collected in connection to the application will be refunded.

LDPC reserve the right to change the content and delivery of the services within the membership and the associated price point at any time. Should this happen LDPC will provide advance notice in advance of a member’s renewal date.

1.3 Cancellation and Refunds

It is our aim that you will be completely happy with the Membership. However, we appreciate that there may come a time when you wish to leave the Membership.

Because new members are granted instant access to the Membership resources upon application approval, LDP Connect does not provide a refund of subscription fees should a member join and then wish to leave prior to the end of their paid membership term. Please consider the detail of the Membership carefully before purchasing and get in touch to ask any questions about suitability.

Members wishing to cancel Membership must either do so inside of the “My Account” section of the website, or send written notification to [email protected].  Members will continue to have access to the Membership through the remainder of the paid term of membership.

Notwithstanding any right or remedy available to us, we may cancel your Membership with immediate effect:
