    Substitution and Cancellation 

    Las Vegas Refund Policy

    ACAMS Las Vegas Conference 2021 passes are non-refundable. Pass holders may request a pass transfer to another person, colleague or client up until September 14, 2021.

     

    Covid-19 Policy: pass holders will only be entitled to a refund of your conference pass if you are unable to attend the in-person event in Las Vegas because you have been diagnosed with Covid-19 or if government-issued travel restrictions are in place during the event dates. If you are unable to attend because of the Covid-19 illness, you will be asked to provide proof of a positive diagnosis. If you have been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19, you can request to transfer your pass to virtual or a future in-person event. 


     
    Government-issued travel restrictions include: 

    • The country/state that you live in closes its borders to travel
    • The country/state you live in issues advice not to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada
    • The country/state you live in has imposed an unavoidable quarantine on return from travel
    • There is an unavoidable quarantine on arrival in Las Vegas, Nevada
    • There is a further lockdown phase in the country/state you live in that prevents you from leaving your home except for essential requirements

     


    Covid-19 refunds are not available for virtual events.

    In the event Las Vegas announces a return to Covid-19 restrictions, ACAMS will abide by local government and CDC guidelines. Due to new limited seating your conference pass may be subject to change to your choice of a virtual pass or the next in-person event. Seats will be allocated based on time of purchase. If you choose to transfer to virtual, the difference in pricing (if applicable) could be used as a credit towards a future ACAMS purchase.

     

    If the state of Nevada governing body imposes a new restriction that prohibits ACAMS from holding an in-person event you will be able to transfer your pass to virtual or the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.

    Health and Safety Guidelines

    ACAMS considers the health and safety of all those on-site at the ACAMS Las Vegas annual conference as our priority.

     

    ACAMS is offering in-person attendance at the Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada in compliance with local government orders permitting such gatherings at this time. Effective July 30 through August 17, 2021, the Aria’s safety protocols, local guidance, and CDC guidelines require all guests and conference attendees to wear masks. All attendees and staff are expected to fully comply with applicable safety precautions, such as staying home if exhibiting signs of illness. Masks are provided for anyone in need of one and sanitization stations will be available throughout the meeting space.

     

    As of June 1, 2021, the Nevada Clark County Commission has lifted restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings, and other safety protocols. However, in the event that hospitalization rates rise, the Clark County Commission could re-instate capacity limits, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at the ACAMS Conference 2021. If this were to occur, you would be notified as to the status of your registration. If state or local capacity restrictions require ACAMS to reduce the number of attendees at the ACAMS Conference 2021, and you are unable to attend the conference in person, you will be provided alternatives, such as the ability to attend virtually or to transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.


    Stay connected while staying safe

    To help with the safety and enjoyment of all attendees we strongly encourage responsible networking. Think fist bump or elbow tap over a handshake, and remember to give people space.


    What to do if you feel unwell?

    • We ask guests to stay in their room if they have COVID-19 related symptoms
    • If you experience severe symptoms please contact the nearest medical care center


    What if I develop COVID-19 after the event?

    If you subsequently test positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), we ask that you contact MGM at covid19@mgmresorts.com so they can provide your information to the local health department to support their contact tracing efforts.
