2021 Annual Meeting Virtual+
In-Person Mini-Conferences Policies
We’re committed to the safety and well-being of all our mini-conference registrants. As such, we continue to closely monitor the evolution of the pandemic and the path of vaccination in the cities where we plan to host our mini-conferences.
You’re highly encouraged to monitor travel advisories, restrictions, and quarantine measures offered by your own country and the country/ies you plan to visit. For more information, visit these websites:
We invite you to learn more about our health policies and waiver. The policies below detail various policies on our in-person events, including our refund and substitution policies.
Fees and Registration
Bulk discounts are not available for our mini-conference/s.
All registrants (both paid and complimentary) will need to pay for each mini-conference/s attendance.
Attendance at each mini-conference incurs an additional fee of US $300 per city.
Payment for the mini-conference/s registration is by credit card only and through our online system. All payment is due upon registration.
All registrants for a single mini-conference or multiple mini-conferences must be registered for the virtual Meeting.
The registration fees for the mini-conference/s may be subject to sales tax, value-added tax (VAT), or other taxes and duties, which, if applicable, will be charged to you in addition to the fees. Specifically, the registration fee for the mini-conference event in Berlin excludes VAT. However, sponsors and exhibitors are liable to account for VAT under the Reverse Charge Mechanism.
First-Come, First- Served
The mini-conferences are limited attendance events.
Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first-served basis. Once maximum capacity in a mini-conference location is reached, registration will close. No exceptions will be made.

- Hong Kong SAR, China—Monday, November 15
- New York, New York, USA—Tuesday, November 16
- Berlin, Germany—Wednesday, November 17

As such, we continue to monitor closely the evolution of the pandemic and the path of vaccination in the cities in which we plan to host our mini-conferences. Learn more about our health policies and waiver.
No onsite/in-person registration will be available for the mini-conference/s.
Cancellations, Refunds, & Substitutions
If INTA is prevented from carrying out its obligations for the mini-conference/s you registered for as a result of any cause beyond its control, or due to acts of God, strikes, labor disputes, government requisitions, restrictions or war or apparent act of war, terrorism, disaster, civil disorder, epidemic or pandemic, curtailment or restriction on transportation facilities, or any other comparable calamity, casualty or condition (collectively a “Force Majeure”) INTA shall have the right to terminate the affected mini-conference/s without liability immediately and shall be relieved of its obligations to you. If the affected mini-conference/s is terminated due to a Force Majeure occurrence before the first day of the mini-conference/s, then you may seek a refund only for the mini-conference/s portion of the 2021 Annual Meeting Virtual+ (Meeting). In this situation, no cancellation fee will be applied.
For consideration of a refund outside of the Cancellation scenario discussed above, submit your Refund Request Form to INTA Member Operations stating in detail the reason for the refund request and including copies of relevant supporting documents for the refund request.
Full refunds for the registration fee for the mini-conference portion of the Meeting only (minus a cancellation fee of US $150) will be issued for cancellations requested between Thursday, July 15, 2021, and Friday, October 29, 2021.
No cancellation requests will be accepted, and no refunds will be given after Friday, October 29, 2021, 11:59, United States Eastern Time.
No substitutions are allowed for mini-conferences alone.
You must transfer the virtual Meeting and mini-conference/s registrations in full to the same person employed by your organizational umbrella. The same applies if you have registered to attend more than one mini-conference.
To facilitate the substitution process, please submit your Substitution Request Form to our Member Operations Team, stating in detail the reason for the substitution and the details of the person attending in your place.

Respecting Your Personal Information
Privacy Notice to Registrants
INTA collects personal information to enable your event registration, including your name, address, email address, and other contact details. This information may be shared with select third parties that perform services for INTA in connection with the mini-conference/s, including database management services, sponsors, and networking tools, when applicable.
All onsite registrant information will be passed through to the virtual Meeting platform as all onsite registrants are required to register for the virtual Meeting. The registrant information includes Record ID from INTA’s Membership Database, Preferred Name / First Name, Last Name, Registrant Email, Organization Name and Organization contact details, and your reserved sessions.
If you visit the Brand Marketplace within the virtual Meeting platform during the mini-conference/s, the information may be captured by sponsors and handled following their policies and terms. Visiting may be construed as consent to receive marketing and communications from that specific sponsor in the future. Subsequently, you may receive marketing materials from a sponsor; you can contact the specific sponsor asking to unsubscribe from the marketing at any time (e.g., by following the unsubscribe instructions in their emails).
Respecting Our Event and Intellectual Property
Badges and Admittance
All mini-conference registrant badges will contain a barcode recording the following information: Record ID from INTA’s Membership Database, Preferred Name / First Name, Last Name, Registrant Email, Organization Name, and Organization contact details.
Once you have picked up your badge, it must always be worn for the duration of the mini-conference/s to gain access to all mini-conference/s activities.
Only persons registered for the mini-conference/s will have access to mini-conference/s associated with this Meeting. Children, guests, and any other unregistered individuals will not be admitted. No exceptions will be made.
Anyone found counterfeiting, copying, sharing, and/or using badges from past meetings may be subject to sanctions, up to and including removal from the Meeting (both the Virtual Meeting and mini-conference events) and revocation of INTA membership.
At the mini-conference/s, a US $100 fee will be charged for the first reprint of a lost or misplaced badge. A US $300 fee will be applied to a second reprint. Badges will not be reprinted a third time.

We encourage the open exchange of ideas, support professional development and personal growth by ensuring our global membership’s diverse range of voices are represented. INTA is dedicated to ensuring that our events and affiliated gatherings are an inclusive, respectful, productive, and harassment-free experience for everyone.
All intellectual property rights in and to the mini-conference/s, the mini-conference/s content, and all materials distributed at or in connection with the mini-conference are owned by INTA, or the mini-conference/s sponsors or speakers presenting at the mini-conference/s. Accordingly, you may not use or reproduce or allow anyone to use or reproduce any:

Plan Your Own Event
If you plan to host a reception, client party, secure a hospitality suite for meetings, etc., please inform us in advance by contacting Tricia Montero. Please ensure that your event does not conflict with INTA-hosted events.
Please note that in the review and any subsequent approval of a request, INTA is not responsible for the event.
Your organization will be fully liable and accountable for all matters concerning your event, including but not limited to: making all payments, having adequate insurance coverage, ensuring appropriate behavior from guests, ensuring your guests’ health and safety, and meeting your contractual obligations with the third parties supporting your event.
When promoting your event via email, we ask that you refrain from using “INTA” or “International Trademark Association” in a way that suggests that INTA is an official sponsor of your event. For example, we ask that you:
- Not use INTA or International Trademark Association in an email subject line unless the subject line also makes clear the name of the organization sponsoring the event.
- Not use INTA as part of an RSVP or other email address.
- Not use INTA in the name of a party or event (for example, please do not call your event “INTA Reception”).
