Refund Policy

Registration for the APT Detroit 2022 Conference is open and the early bird rate is in effect until August 10, 2022. In an effort to ease concerns, APT has updated its Conference Registration Refund Policy to include the following clause:

APT will issue a full refund of conference registration fees (less $25 administrative fee) to conference attendees who test positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of the start of the conference (or who have continued illness if tested prior to 10 days before). Proof of positive test result (or physician confirmation of illness) is required and should be sent to APT via email at [email protected]

This registration policy has been made to encourage you to take advantage of the early bird rate. Should your plans to attend the conference change for reasons other than testing positive to COVID, please refer to the APT Conference Registration Refund Policy.

What if I have to cancel my registration?
  • Cancellations must be made in writing via email to [email protected] or via fax to 217-529-7178.
  • If you cancel before midnight, October 1, 2022, APT will refund all but $25 of your registration fee.
  • If you cancel between October 1-20, 2022, APT will refund all but $100 of your registration fee.
  • If you cancel after October 20, 2022, APT will refund only up to $100.
  • No shows will not be refunded.
