*****THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS******
Tickets may be transferred to another attendee but refunds will not be available. Refunds will only be available in the event the convention has been canceled for any unforeseeable reason.
Although our guests have been booked and promoted by us with the best of intentions, there is always the chance the guests will have to cancel due to a number of reasons. These reasons could include, scheduling conflicts, any emergencies, or any inclement weather. Conventions may have cancellations for any reason and for that matter the tickets are again, NON-REFUNDABLE, because these tickets are for admission into the convention not for any specific guests.
Any cancelled guest autograph or photo op will be refunded within 30 days after the convention has concluded.
