The registration fees include a daily continental breakfast (7:30-8:30 AM) and buffet lunch (12:45-2:00 PM) as well as coffee and tea service throughout each day of the symposium, a combined $515/person cost that offsets the registration fee quite substantially.

Important Note About the Registration Fees:

WIPOS 2022 is limited to a maximum of 150 attendees – registration is required to secure your attendance and it is on a first come, first served basis. This means that when we reach the 150-attendee limit, registration for WIPOS 2022 will be closed. The organizers must pay a large non-refundable deposit to the venue. Therefore, if your plans change and you need to cancel your registration, please do take a very careful note of our refund policy:

  • Before June 1st, 2022: You will receive a full refund, minus a $150 cancellation fee.
  • Between June 1st– October 31st, 2022: You will receive a 50% refund.
  • After November 1, 2022: Sadly, NO REFUNDS can be made.
  • If you cannot attend the entire conference for any reason, we will NOT be able to pro-rate your registration fees.
