Frequently AskedQuestions

Do I need to cancel my conference registration?

Premier members and member speakers: Premier will cancel your conference registration for pre-sessions, including collaboratives, committee meetings and all regular conference activities. You will receive a confirmation of the cancellation. If you registered a guest and paid a guest fee, it will be fully refunded back to the card on file. We will retain your contact information for notification purposes of when virtual offerings are available.

Suppliers: Booth managers will receive a direct communication from the Breakthroughs planning team about how to cancel/transfer their booth and exhibiting attendee registrations for Breakthroughs 2020.

Do I need to cancel my hotel reservation?

If you made a hotel reservation through the link provided in your conference registration, your reservation will automatically be canceled and your credit card information will be deleted. Hotel deposits paid by supplier attendees will be credited back to the card on file. Confirmations of the cancellations and refunds will be sent from the hotel.

Will I be reimbursed for flight or travel costs?

Premier is not responsible for individual flight or travel reservations paid for by attendees. Contact your travel agent or airline directly to discuss cancellation policies and refund information. Flights booked through Premier (speakers or committee members) will be canceled. No action is needed on the part of the speaker or committee member.

I registered for a pre-session, collaborative or committee meeting. What is the status of those meetings?

All in-person meetings scheduled as pre- or post-sessions have been canceled. You will receive separate communications regarding the rescheduling or virtual offerings related to these meetings.

Will there be virtual options for Breakthroughs 2020?

We know our attendees truly value the Breakthroughs knowledge sharing mission and we remain optimistic that we can identify ways to deliver content virtually. More details will be shared soon.

Will suppliers be refunded for booth fees and exhibiting attendee (badge) fees?

All exhibiting attendee (badge) fees will be refunded. Booth fees can be applied to the 2021 Breakthroughs Conference or refunded. Booth managers will receive a separate communication outlining the options available and next steps regarding booth and exhibiting attendee fees.

Will advertisers be refunded?

In the wake of the face-to face cancellation, we are exploring alternative ways to provide online content and virtual interaction. There may be opportunities for suppliers to support these efforts by advertising digitally. Funds already paid for advertising could be applied to these digital opportunities, or a full refund given. Our advertising team will make direct contact with suppliers to discuss details in the next few weeks.

How will orders placed by exhibitors for trade show floor services be canceled/refunded?

Exhibitors will need to work directly with trade show floor service providers regarding any show orders placed for the conference.

I was chosen to present a concurrent session at Breakthroughs 2020. Will I still be able to share session content?

The Breakthroughs education team is currently exploring alternative ways to offer concurrent session content virtually. Speakers chosen for Breakthroughs 2020 will have the option to participate if opportunities become available. Detailed information will be shared as it becomes available and communicated directly to all session presenters.

If I was chosen to present a concurrent session this June, will I be able to conduct the presentation at next year’s conference in 2021?

Proposals accepted for Premier’s 2020 Breakthroughs Conference cannot be transferred to the 2021 conference. The Call for Speakers RFP (Request for Session Proposals) for Breakthroughs 2021 will open for submissions in late summer 2020.

How will Premier member and supplier awards be handled now that Breakthroughs 2020 has been canceled?

Premier will notify all winners of their awards no later than July 1, 2020. Each winner will receive an award keepsake to display, a press kit and recognition on Premier Awards webpages.
