Visitors can take public transport or self-arranged transport to return to their home or their hotel of choice.

Currently the Government of Hong Kong has limited restrictions involving capacity limits for gatherings. However, in the event that hospitalization rates rise, Government of Hong Kong could re-instate stronger capacity limits, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at the 2022 ACAMS Hong Kong Symposium. 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 2022 ACAMS Hong Kong Symposium, and you are unable to attend the event in person, you will be able to transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.
