GBTA Tampa Chapter Registration and Cancellation policy

There are many pieces in  coordinating a successful event; we must strictly enforce our event registration, cancellation and no-show policy:


All event registration payments should be made online or a check by mail one day before an event.  If payment is by mail; check should be received in our post office box five days prior to the event.  This will make the registration at the event smooth and efficient.

Event Cancellation 

GBTA Tampa Chapter reserves the right to cancel an event due to low enrollment or other circumstances which would make the event non-viable. If we cancel an event, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in the postponement of an event, registrants will have the option to either receive a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at the new, future date.

Event registration and cancellation by participant

Unless specifically stated on registration materials, the deadline to receive a refund for your registration is one business day before the event.

Cancellations received after the stated deadline will not be eligible for a refund.

Refunds will not be available for registrants who choose not to attend an event (no-show).

Cancellations will be accepted in writing only and must be received by the stated cancellation deadline. All refund requests must be made by the attendee or credit card holder. Refund requests must include the name of the attendee and/or transaction number.  Refunds will be credited back to the original credit card used for payment or refund by check directly to the registrant for the event.


Walk-ins are guests who register for an event  minutes before the event and are without an event payment  confirmation.  GBTA Tampa Chapter will work with the venue and the walk-in to satisfy participation but does not guarantee space or a meal in the case of luncheon meeting.
