Registration Policies

Member pricing is available to all employees of AmericanHort member companies. Membership will be verified.

Name changes can be made without charge through June 21. Contact Showcare to complete a name change.

Badges are printed on-site by scanning the barcode in your confirmation email. Lost badges will incur a $15 re-issue fee.

Confirmations will be sent from Showcare within 48 hours of processing. This will be the only registration confirmation you will receive.

Registration cancellations must be made in writing by mail, fax, or e-mail. A 50% refund will be given for cancellations made prior to June 21, but may take four to six weeks to process. Cancellations after June 21 will not be refunded. In most cases, in lieu of cancelling, you may transfer your registration to another person without additional charge. By registering for the Cultivate you are agreeing to the full Registration & Cancellation Policy on this page.

Photo policy. AmericanHort photographs meetings and events for the use in association advertising, newsletters, and other promotion materials, whether in print, electronic, or other media, including websites and e-communications. By participating in this conference you grant AmericanHort the right to use your name and photograph for such purposes.

People requiring special accommodations to attend or participate in Cultivate (including rental of a motorized cart/wheelchair) should contact AmericanHort's Carol Baker at 614-487-1117 by July 1.

Non-Compete Rule prohibits individuals or companies from scheduling any receptions, hospitality suites, social functions, exhibits, product demonstrations, technical seminars, training sessions, or other events or functions during the Cultivate educational conference and exhibit hours.

Registration is on a first-come, first served basis and subject to change. Space in the educational sessions, tours, etc. may be limited and are subject to room capacity and Public Safety codes that are beyond the control of AmericanHort. Some events may have their times and dates changed or be canceled due to matters beyond the control of AmericanHort and any affiliated host organization(s). AmericanHort will make every effort to notify you in advance of changes and any applicable refunds or price adjustments.

Registering for an AmericanHort event constitutes an agreement between you and AmericanHort. Upon registering, you agree to pay all fees in a timely manner, adhere to this cancellation policy, and adhere to a professional conduct during the meeting. Regardless of when and if you pay your fees this cancellation policy applies. Furthermore, you are ultimately responsible for your fees even if another party (such as your employer) has expressed its intent to pay them on your behalf. The performance of the agreement by AmericanHort may be affected by force majeure (including but not limited to acts of God, acts of war or other acts of enemies, government regulation, disaster, strikes, floods, civil disorder, curtailment of transportation facilities, or other emergency or event beyond the control of the parties), thus making it inadvisable, unsafe, illegal, or impossible to provide required accommodations and/or meeting facilities, hold the meeting, or travel to the meeting. In the event of force majeure, AmericanHort may terminate the agreement upon providing written notice by email or other means to the other party without penalty or obligation. Such right of termination shall not be unreasonably exercised. In addition, AmericanHort reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to cancel the event and any affiliated events. In that case, AmericanHort shall refund to you all registration fees it has received from you for this meeting but shall have no further obligation to you of any type, whether monetary or otherwise. Accordingly, AmericanHort shall in no event have any liability to you and shall have no other obligation to you of any type except as expressly stated in the preceding sentence. Such right of termination shall not be unreasonably exercised. AmericanHort and any affiliated host organization(s) are not responsible for errors or omissions on any website.
