1) Affiliate Directors certify teams eligible to attend Global Finals.
2) Team Managers receive an email which will direct them to accept or decline their invitation to Globals Finals.
3) Team Managers register online and pay a $1,500 deposit.
Once the Team Manager has decided on their preferred packages, they must register the team members online and make the $1,500 deposit. This must be completed within two weeks after the team’s Affiliate Tournament. Team Managers will receive an email confirmation of their registration. If you are a Team Manager and do not already have an account, go to ShopDI.org to create one.
4) Team Managers can make add-ons or changes to the team’s registration and complete payment.
Add-ons, cancellations and changes can be made online until May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time. Your team’s registration is not secured until a $1,500 deposit has been met. If your team completes their registration and Destination Imagination, Inc. receives full payment or a purchase order covering the entire balance by May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, you will be eligible for Express Check-In at the event! Accepted payment forms are check, credit card, money order, wire transfer or purchase order. After May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, all changes for Housing Packages will incur an additional $50 per person fee. Changes made between May 2 and May 9 must be sent via email to [email protected] or faxed to 856-881-3596. Changes made after May 9 will be done on-site at Registration upon Team Manager check-in.
5) Download, print and sign forms and bring them to Global Finals.
All attendees must complete the appropriate consent forms, which will be available for download below. Please complete the forms before leaving for Global Finals. The Team Manager will submit the originals to University of Tennessee (UT) at Registration. We strongly recommend that the Team Manager make a copy of each form to keep with them during the event.
Changes can be made to team and individual registrations until May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time. To avoid all additional penalties, all registration must be completed by this date.
Team & Individual Late Registration
If the entire team registers after May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, there will be an additional $500 penalty. Registration fees, including the additional $500 penalty, must be paid immediately and in full. Please note, registration is contingent on University of Tennessee (UT) advising that the housing will be provided. If an individual All-Inclusive Registration is added after May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, there will be an additional $100 penalty for that registration. Changes from the standard to early access all-inclusive registration will incur a $75 per person penalty.
Team & Individual Late Cancellation
If the entire team cancels before May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, Destination Imagination will refund all registration fees except 50% of the $1,500 deposit (i.e., $750). Starting May 2, no refunds will be issued for cancelled teams. If the deposit is not paid by May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, the team will automatically be cancelled and Team Late Registration rules will be enforced if the team would like to be reinstated. Refunds for cancellations prior to May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time will be processed 6 to 8 weeks after the event, less cancellation fee of $750. Cancellation fees are not transferable. If an individual cancels after May 1, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, no refunds will be issued for the registration or pass. This includes ALL Team Registrations, Event Passes and Day Passes.
Registration and Passes After the Deadline
Late registrations, cancellations and changes must be submitted by the Team Manager via email to [email protected] or by fax at 856-881-3596. Penalties as previously described will apply. Starting May 10, non-refundable cancellations and changes can only be made in the Registration and Orientation Area at time of check-in at TRECS in Knoxville. You are responsible for the full cost of the number of registrations and passes in the registration system on May 1 regardless of no-shows/cancellations.
