POLICIES

The purchase of this event will be final sale. No refunds will be given. If you accidentally purchase two spots, you are responsible for selling the extra spot.  Event attendee’s spots are transferable and you are able to sell your spot in the event that you are unable to attend the event. Please contact Katie at katie@aliedwards.com by September 1, 2018 to arrange the transfer of your spot. 

If you are wishing to attend this event with friends we suggest one person purchase multiple spots during the checkout process to ensure availability and arrange payment from your friends at a later time. We are expecting a high volume of customers on the website at the time that registration opens, so one person purchasing multiple spots will be a much easier route to take rather than several people trying to purchase at the same time and potentially missing out if the event sells out.

Please make sure your email is up to date under your account settings ( under the My Account section - click on your user name in the top right corner) as this will be our main form of contact with attendees.

Eugene, Oregon is home to a small but convenient  airport (EUG). If staying at Valley River Inn, you will be provided with free airport transportation to and from the airport. Please contact the hotel for more information on airport transport. 

Eugene is located 2.5 hrs south of the Portland, Oregon airport (PDX) and is a good option if you would like to rent a car and drive down the previous day. 

Click here to request a Visitor's Guide for Eugene and the surrounding areas. We are located about an hour from the Pacific Ocean and an hour from the mountains which means there are a ton of outdoor things to see and do if you want to extend your stay.
