Tethered Together Ticket Policies

Sometimes things come up and we change our plans and sometimes things come up and the world changes our plans.

2023 Event Tickets:

If you registered for our 2023 event but were unable to attend and let us know ahead of time, we are able to honor your ticket for 2024 but you will need to actually register again in order to attend our 2024 event. You will need to write us at [email protected] to receive a code that will allow you to register for our 2024 event. You cannot give this code to someone else to use instead and all requests for 2023 to 2024 ticket transfers must be received by January 31st, 2024.

2024 Event Tickets:

We are able to do one of two things for you to help out if you can’t make it to our event due to personal illness, injury or other circumstances:

  • We are able to offer you the ability to transfer your 2024 ticket to our 2025 event. You will need to notify us ahead of the event by email to [email protected] that you will not be attending and then contact us when 2025 ticketing starts to receive a code to register for our 2025 event. You will need to register again using this code in order to attend. All codes will need to be used by January 31st, 2025 in order to be transferred to our 2025 event and can only be used by the named 2024 attendee for their own registration.
  • We also offer you the opportunity to transfer your paid 2024 ticket to another person to use to attend our 2024 event as a gift or for a price you set between yourselves as long as you complete this process by January 31st, 2024.

Preparing to host our event involves months of preparation and planning as well as travel and supply costs, and we hope that this policy removes stress and uncertainty from last minute plan changes for you and for our event.

No refunds will be given for choosing not to comply with the clearly stated Covid-19 policies opted into during ticket purchase.

In the unlikely event of a cancellation of our 2024 event, tickets will by default be transferred to our 2025 event.

All requests need to be submitted by email to [email protected] and cannot be accepted any other way.

Transfer Eligibility:

Most tickets purchased for our 2024 event are eligible for transfer to our 2025 event for the folks named as the 2024 attendees OR to other folks as long as complete transfer requests are received by January 31st, 2024.

Duplicate tickets are not transferrable due to record-keeping needs and will be refunded instead. No other refunds are available or offered. You must purchase tickets only for yourself or other real people. Placeholder tickets (buying two tickets for yourself or a fictitious person hoping to transfer one to someone else later) are not allowed for our event and are not eligible for transfer. If you purchase a ticket for yourself and then are chosen as a presenter or vendor, your paid ticket will be refunded instead after you use your registration code.

We consider tickets to be the property of the person whose legal name is specified as the attendee for the ticket. This means that if you purchase a ticket for someone else, it belongs to them. We will need the permission of the person listed as the attendee on a ticket process a transfer of any ticket. 

To be clear:

  • If you purchase a ticket for another person, it belongs to them. Ticket transfer rights for 2024 will be issued to you only with the permission of the person whose name is attached to the ticket. 
  • If you are holding a ticket for yourself that was purchased by someone else, you cannot cash out the purchase value to yourself if you choose not to come nor can anyone reassign your ticket to a different person without your permission.

All requests must be made by email to [email protected].

Refund Eligibility:

All ticket purchases are non-refundable except in the case of accidental duplication and for presenters, vendors and some volunteers who purchased a ticket before being selected. Presenters and vendors will need to first register with their new registration codes in order to then receive paid ticket refunds.
