Cancellation/Refund Policy

Attendees:

KKon will follow all safety measures in accordance with LA County guidelines. Attendees who wish to cancel before January 30 will receive credit for their registration, which may be used toward recordings, dues, or other KBI purchases. KombuchaKon 22 is a hybrid event. If the in-person portion is canceled, Kombucha Kon will continue as a virtual conference and no refunds will be given. If Kombucha Kon cancels the virtual conference, attendees will receive credit for a future conference.

Sponsors:

Sponsors who wish to cancel their attendance at the conference must do so by January 30, 2022. Cancellation by Jan 30 will result in a refund, minus a deposit of 25% of booth cost. Sponsors will not receive a refund after January 30.

Event Cancellation:

KombuchaKon 22 is a hybrid event. The in-person portion of the event will follow the guidelines of LA County. Currently, our in-person event meets these guidelines. If such guidelines change so as to restrict indoor gatherings of KKon’s nature, the in-person portion of the event will be canceled, and the event will continue online.

Because Kombucha Kon will continue as a virtual conference, no refunds will be given. If Kombucha Kon cancels the virtual conference, attendees will receive credit for a future conference.
