Are CEU Credits available for attending classes?

IBS Las Vegas does not offer CEU credits. However, we can provide you with a certificate noting how many class hours were completed at the conference. This certificate can be taken to your state board, and the board will decide whether or not they will award you CEU credits. If you are interested in obtaining a certificate please visit the Show Office onsite or email show management by clicking here.

Are refunds obtainable for the 2021 show?

If your cancellation occurs at least 30 days prior to the original Event start date, you will be entitled to receive a refund of your registration fees less a processing fee of $200 or the value of your registration, whichever is lower. Unfortunately, Questex cannot refund any fees for cancellations that occur less than 30 days prior to the original Event start date, or for failure to attend an Event. If a cancellation changes the entitlement to a multi-registration discount, the lowest value registration will be cancelled first. No cancellations are accepted once any part of a single or multi registration party has accessed the pre-Event networking or partnering facilities, applications or platforms. All cancellations must be sent by email to [email protected] marked for the attention of Customer Services and must be received by Questex. You acknowledge that the refund of your fees or portion thereof in accordance with this policy is your sole remedy in respect of any cancellation of your registration by you and all other liability is expressly excluded.
