Pricing and refund policy

We try to keep prices fair and affordable for different groups within the geoweb community. Ticket sales cover our costs. Geoweb Forum is a bootstrapped project.

There are discount codes out there for students and startups. You are welcome to take advantage of them if you come across them, but we can not apply discounts on already bought tickets.

We will refund tickets if an event is cancelled or moved - which should never happen. Otherwise tickets are non-refundable.
