Is my registration/ticket transferable?
- Registration/ticket are transferable. If you should wish to transfer your ticket, please call our office at 408.986.9874 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title “Transfer Ticket – From [the name of the original owner] to [the name of the new owner].” The subject title will help us ensure that all tickets that need to be transferred are accounted for. Once tickets are transferred, we cannot accept the original owner without a confirmation e-mail requesting the ticket be transferred back. This helps us ensure that we do not double-count tickets.
What is the refund policy?
- Because CAIR-SFBA is a non-profit organization, any tickets that are bought and not used will be considered a donation to the organization. That said, please consult your accountant or a tax specialist as CAIR-SFBA does not issue donation receipts for tickets purchased.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
- The name on the registration/ticket must match the attendee. If it does not, we cannot accept an unmatched ticket to the event.
