Re: Coronavirus Cancellations

As in many other industries throughout the world, it is an extremely difficult time for the Convention and Tradeshow industry.  The number of events cancelling throughout the county is unprecedented and unfortunately cancellations will continue. 

Our typical cancellation policy has been the following;

    • 100% refund 28 days or more from the start of the event
    • 75% refund 21-27 days before the start of the event
    • 50% refund 4-20 days before the start of the event
    • 0% refund 3 days or less from the start of the event

We want to ensure all our clients that Commonwealth Electric is doing everything we can to accommodate everyone through this difficult time.  For this reason, we have decided to change our cancellation policy to better serve our customers and alleviate some of the financial burden associated with cancelling services due to the coronavirus.   Our revised cancellation policy will be as follows:

    • 100% refund 8 days or more from the start of the event
    • 50% 4-7 days prior to the start of the event
    • 0% refund 3 days or less from the start of the event

These fees are by no means a revenue stream for us but simply necessary to cover of our costs that are involved in planning an event.  We are hopeful that this difficult time will pass as soon as possible and look forward to serving you in the future.
