If you are accepted as a speaker and have already purchased a ticket, we’ll refund it, 100%. So don’t wait, be sure you have a seat either way!

Unfortunately as LibertyJS is still a community run local conference with a limited budget and we will not be able to provide any reimbursements for travel or accommodations.
