If a YMRC Marketplace Show is cancelled for any reason can I get a refund?

Yes and No, 

Yes, you will receive either a credit toward another YMRC Marketplace or a refund upon request.  This for the registration fee ONLY.  See below for further details on other associated expenses.

The following liability disclaimer applies to events sponsored by Your Military Reunion Connections (YMRC) and/or one of our Supplier Partners, our representatives, agents, sponsors, and/or employees of YMRC.

In the unlikely occurrence that a YMRC event must be canceled or postponed due to circumstances beyond the control of YMRC, we shall not be liable for any costs incurred by the event attendee. This includes cancellation due to our Partner’s property closing, undergoing renovations, change of ownership, lack of Supplier Partners attendance or lack of Reunion Planners attendance.

No, YMRC does not accept responsibility and expressly excludes liability to the fullest extent permitted by law for the following:

  • Any loss or damage to any personal property left unattended during an event organized by YMRC unless caused by the negligence of YMRC or its direct employees; or
  • Death or any personal injury suffered at a YMRC event unless caused by the negligence of YMRC or its direct employees.

No, YMRC does not assume any responsibility or obligation to provide financial or other assistance, including, but not limited to medical, health, or disability insurance in the event of injury, illness, death, or property damage occurring during an event or travel to and from an event.

No, YMRC will not be liable for any incurred travel expenses due to failure to have an advertised and/or scheduled event.

YMRC encourages our Supplier Partners to obtain travel insurance for reimbursement of costs for transportation such as hotels, airline tickets, train tickets, bus tickets or any other travel-related costs.

Will I get to talk to each Planner?

Yes, you will have fifteen minutes of “face-to-face” time with each planner during Marketplace. Your appointments will be pre-scheduled for you by YMRC. There are additional networking opportunities through shared meal periods and we encourage you to take advantage of the informal setting to get to know more about the planners’ needs.

What do I need to bring to the Reunion Planner's Marketplace?

You need to bring plenty of business cards, your profile sheets (must be 3-hole punched) and/or up to two (2) sheets of sales collateral, (must be 3-hole punched) and don’t forget to pack your smile  

Do I to setup a Trade Show style booth?

The short answer is, no. The long answer is, with YMRC being the official innovator of pre-scheduled face-to-face appointments for the Military Market, we felt the booth method is more ‘old school’ and a much less effective approach when selling. The appointments we offer provides you with the quality time you deserve with each and every attending Planner. In addition, YMRC saves you time and money! How? No shipping your booth items, and no setting up a booth! You will find the "appointment only" format allows you to have more quality time to ‘sell’ your destination and/or venue to the Military Reunion Planners you will meet.

How many Planners will I meet with?

YMRC pre-qualifies our Planners and you can expect to meet with up to 20-25 planners representing up to 15 – 20 different military reunion groups.

What if I need to cancel? (Our Refund Policy)

YMRC requires a sixty (60) day notice in writing for any cancellations. Less than 60 days notice from the date of the event, there are no refund or transfers.
