What is the COVID-19 cancellation policy for AU 2022?  

Autodesk’s priority is the health and safety of its employees, partners, customers and all those who plan to attend Autodesk University. If you test positive for COVID-19 prior to the conference, we encourage you to take precautions for your health and the health of other attendees at the event. That includes canceling your registration for AU 2022. If your cancellation is due to a positive COVID diagnosis, our customer service team will work with you to provide a credit for our 2023 conference or a refund of your original purchase price. Your cancellation will not incur a cancellation fee. 

 

Autodesk University event guidelines and protocols for COVID health and safety are guided by venue policies; local, state, and federal guidance; and Autodesk’s corporate governance. Based on these factors, vaccination against COVID-19 is not currently required for conference attendees. If conference vaccination requirements change prior to AU 2022 and you are unable to attend the conference, Autodesk will refund your original purchase price. A $100 fee will be assessed upon cancellation.
