Event Policies

Updated March 16, 2022

The Oregon Sports Summit will no longer require mandatory face masks, nor proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test for entry. Event attendees are still welcome to wear a mask during the conference.

Please note, these policies are subject to change and the event organizers will continue to monitor and follow all federal, state, and county guidance. The health and safety of our attendees, speakers and sponsors has been, and will always be, our top priority.

Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the venue and disposable masks will be available for attendees who may want one. Each event space will be equipped with a Vollara Air Scrubber machine that will provide continuous and proactive surface and air disinfection.

Cancellation Policy

Registration cancellations and refund requests may be submitted by the participant within 72 hours of registering to receive a full refund. Registration requests made after that time will result in the paid registration being rolled over to the following year’s event.

All event registration cancellation requests must be received in writing and sent to Jessica@EugeneCascadesCoast.org. Please call 541.743.8765 with any questions regarding the cancellation policy.

COVID Cancellation and Event Reschedule

The health and safety of our conference attendees is of the utmost importance. If it is deemed unsafe to hold the event in-person due to a community COVID-19 case spike, the organizers will work to reschedule the event for fall 2022. In the event of this occurring, registered attendees will be notified and their registrations will be rolled over to the new event date.

Substitution Policy

If you find that you are unable to attend the Summit, you are welcome to send a colleague in your place. There is no fee to make this change, but all requests will need to be received by Monday, April 4, 2022. All registration substitution requests and questions can be sent directly to Jessica@EugeneCascadesCoast.org .

Inclement Weather Policy

If the event is canceled due to inclement weather and dangerous road conditions, the event will be rescheduled, and paid registrations will be applied to the rescheduled event.
