Europe 2023 Refund Policy
The Assembly Europe 2023 passes are non-refundable. Pass holders may request a pass transfer to another person, colleague, or client up until May 12, 2023.
Covid-19 Policy: At the discretion of ACAMS, pass holders will receive a refund of a conference pass if the pass holder is unable to attend the in-person event, at any time, in Dublin because the pass holder has been diagnosed with Covid-19 or if government-issued travel restrictions are in place during the event dates. If a pass holder is unable to attend because of the Covid-19 illness, ACAMS reserves the right to request proof of a positive diagnosis. If a pass holder has been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19, a pass transfer to a future in-person event can be made.
Government-issued travel restrictions include:
- The country that you live in closes its borders to travel
- The country you live in issues advice not to travel to Dublin, Ireland
- The country you live in has imposed an unavoidable quarantine on return from travel
- There is an unavoidable quarantine on arrival in Dublin, Ireland
- There is a further lockdown phase in the country you live in that prevents you from leaving your home except for essential requirements
In the event Dublin announces a return to Covid-19 restrictions, ACAMS will abide by local government and WHO guidelines. Due to new limited seating your conference pass may be subject to change to the next in-person event. Seats will be allocated based on time of purchase.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know of your specific accessibility requirements to be accommodated at the conference.
Business attire is suitable for all conference sessions and receptions. For the pre-conference training day, business casual is appropriate. Conference Center room temperatures can be on the cooler side, so we recommend dressing with this in mind.
If you have any special dietary requirements, please email email@example.com specifics, at least 30 days before the start of the event. Our team will do their best to accommodate these requests, however requests received less than 30 days before the conference cannot be guaranteed.
You will be asked to present photo ID before being issued with a conference badge onsite. It is very important to wear your badge during the conference as entrance to all sessions, the exhibition hall, and networking receptions is by badge only. There is a US$50 replacement charge for lost badges, payable at the registration desk. Conference badges are not transferable and must not be shared.
Your registration and attendance at this conference constitutes an agreement by the registrant to ACAMS’ use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videos, electronic reproduction and audio reproduction.

Health + Safety Guidance
ACAMS is offering in-person attendance at The Assembly Europe 2023 in Dublin, Ireland in compliance with local government orders permitting such gatherings. Currently, the Convention Centre Dublin safety protocols, Health Service Executive (HSE), and World Health Organization’s (WHO) guidelines do not require hotel guests and conference attendees to wear masks. However, all attendees and staff are still expected to fully comply with applicable safety precautions, such as staying home if exhibiting signs of illness. Masks are optional for anyone choosing to wear one and sanitization stations will be available throughout the meeting space.
If hospitalization rates rise, Dublin could re-instate capacity limits, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at The Assembly Europe 2023. If this were to occur, you would be notified as to the status of your registration. If capacity restrictions require ACAMS to reduce the number of attendees at The Assembly Europe 2023, and you are unable to attend the conference in person, you will be provided alternatives, such as the ability to transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.
