We also suggest that if others from your organization are attending JAM that you coordinate to capitalize on the widest session coverage possible.
How do I meet other attendees from my product line, department, or region?
One of the many benefits of attending JAM is networking and making contacts. JAM facilitates this in the following ways:
May I bring a guest to the meals and social functions?
JAM attendees are welcome to purchase guest tickets for breakfast ($25 each), lunch ($40 each), the welcome reception ($30) and the JAM party ($75). A JAM Party ticket includes round-trip transportation, admission and dinner. Advanced purchase is required and payment for all guest tickets must be received by May 18, 2018. Guest tickets are available for purchase online only – tickets will not be sold on-site. Guest ticket refunds are not available after May 18, 2018.
Select the Add a Guest option during the online registration process. If you have already registered for JAM, you may modify your registration online. Attendance to all other conference programs is limited to registered Jenzabar clients, employees and invited partners.
A guest ticket can be added to an existing registration by returning to the JAM website and selecting the Attendee Service Center under “Registration” from the left side of the page. Select Edit and Continue to the guest registration page and enter the number of guests tickets desired, select payment option and proceed with payment.
Advance purchased guest tickets will be available for collection during registration.
What is the JAM cancellation policy?
You may cancel and receive a full refund if we are notified in writing to JAM@jenzabar.com of your cancellation by April 27, 2018. After that date, you may send a substitute in lieu of a refund. If you register but fail to notify JAM of your cancellation by April 27, 2018, you will be responsible for the full registration amount. If you cancel as part of a discounted group, and the group falls below ten attendees, the rate for all attendees within that group will be recalculated to reflect the non-discounted rate and the group will be billed for the balance due. In addition, there will be not refunds due to weather or other travel delays. For security reasons, badge swapping is not permitted. Anyone found wearing a badge that does not match his/her identification will be removed from the conference without a refund. In addition, the badge/name will be cancelled without a refund. Please refer to the JAM Registration Terms & Conditions for more information.
How do I cancel my JAM registration?
If you can no longer attend JAM, please email your cancellation request to JAM@jenzabar.com by April 27, 2018. A refund, if applicable, will be processed using the original method of payment. If you fail to notify JAM of your cancellation you will be responsible the full registration amount.
What if I lose my JAM badge?
Each attendee is issued a name badge during onsite registration. The badge must be worn during conference and allows access to JAM sessions, meals and events. If a badge is lost or damaged, a $25 replacement fee will be charged.
For security reasons, badge swapping is not permitted. Anyone found wearing a badge that does not match his/her identification will be removed from the conference without a refund. In addition, the badge/name will be cancelled without a refund.
Is there an attendee directory available?
Jenzabar may publish a directory of attendees for JAM participants and/or exhibitors and sponsors. If published, this list would include attendees’ name, title, organization and mailing address. It would not contain telephone numbers or email addresses. If you wish to be excluded from this directory, please select Attendee Directory Opt Out during registration. A limited number of our sponsors and exhibitors may send one promotional mailing before or after the conference. These organizations are vital to the support of the conference and they are the critical elements that allow us to keep our registration costs down. However, if you prefer to not share your information with exhibitors and other attendees, please opt out of the Attendee Directory during registration. Please note that this would exclude you from the directory used by fellow attendees for networking.
We look forward to seeing you at JAM 2018!
