To create an event focused on big ideas, high-value networking and your personal comfort, we’re limiting the Forum to just 350 guests. If you’re as ready for the excitement and energy of an in-person forum as we are, join us in Palm Springs:

  • Connect face-to-face to new opportunities with the North American ecosystem and beyond. Seventy-five percent of the 300 places are reserved for innovation companies and investor/corporates. Expect quality, in-person deal-making.
  • Meet leading innovators including companies in the 2023 Global Cleantech 100.
  • Gain insight into trends and innovations powering a cleaner, cooler world. See the in-person agenda.

Guidelines on ticket types and discounts

Please start by deciding between in-person or digital tickets. Then find out if you qualify for a discount in our section on Available Discounts.

Scroll down for full information on ticket types.

Ticket allocation is limited in each of three categories of attendees:

  • innovators
  • investors and corporates
  • all others.

At least 75% of tickets will be allocated to innovators and investors or corporates. And at least 50% of innovator places will be for US companies.

Available Discounts

All discounts are offered via online registration and payment, unless otherwise agreed by Cleantech Group.

Discounts are available to the following people:

  • Cleantech Group subscribers: Our subscribers receive a discount off the registration fee. You must register with the email address you use to log into i3. If you have any issues with your subscriber discount, please email us at forums@cleantech.com.
    • You can find more information about our services and subscription offerings here.
  • A loyalty discount for recent Cleantech Forum San Francisco attendees: We think it’s fair to reward people who have registered as a paying attendee for at least one Forum in the last three years. This discount applies only to an in-person ticket but does NOT apply to innovation companies (who already have their own flat rate)
    • Do you qualify for a loyalty discount? Please email us at forums@cleantech.com and we’ll make sure you receive it.

Please note that only one discount type/code can be applied against the standard rates published above. Cleantech Group reserves the right to reject any registrations where a double discount has been applied or the individual was not entitled to use a discount code.

Volunteering

Are you in business school or a graduate program? Apply to volunteer at the in-person part of the 2022 Cleantech Forum San Francisco in Palm Springs on 23-25 January and get access to unique networking and learning opportunities.

Please note that this opportunity is open to those still in school, with occasional exceptions made for recent graduates.

Media

Media registration is by invitation only and is only available for the digital part of the Forum.  For a media pass, please contact us.

Terms & Conditions

For the full list of terms and conditions, please click here. Here is a summary of the key provisions:

Substitutions:

  • A request to transfer a registration (be that for an in person or a digital ticket) to a colleague should be made by giving written notice, anytime up to two working days before the event start date, via email to forums@cleantech.com.
  • Cleantech Group reserves the right to deny a request for such a substitution, but will not unreasonably do so.

Cancellation by You:

Participants wishing to cancel their registration must do so in writing via email to forums@cleantech.com; Applicable refunds (or future credits) for participant cancellations are outlined as follows:

In Person tickets

  • Up to and including Friday 10 December, 80% will be refunded on cancellations by participants (or 100% can be applied as a credit towards a future Cleantech Group event registration fee to be used within 12 months of the cancellation date).
  • Up to and including Thursday 23 December, 50% will be refunded on cancellations by participants (or 75% can be applied as a credit towards a future Cleantech Group event registration fee to be used within 12 months of the cancellation date)
  • From Friday 24 December (1 month before the event), no refunds will be due on cancellations by participants

Digital tickets

  • No refunds for online/virtual events are available. Tickets can be transferred as above.

Changes or Delays to In Person Events:

  • All our events are built with the ability to deliver them, even if we have to convert in person experiences to virtual ones.
  • If Cleantech Group changes or delays an event that is either wholly or partially in person, be that due to Covid-19 or some other reason that renders this necessary to ensure the event’s viability and/or participants’ safety, our standard terms and conditions do not oblige Cleantech Group to refund, but to deliver equivalent value.
  • That will be achieved either from a future credit for the full value of what was not delivered (usable within 12 months) or, in the case where an in- person event (be that the whole or part of the overall event) is converted to online, the ticket type will be converted and the number of tickets will be increased to deliver equivalent value.

Cancellation by Cleantech Group

  • In the unlikely event where Cleantech Group chooses to cancel an event, a full refund would be owed except in the case where an event is cancelled, through no fault of Cleantech Group (e.g. a force majeure event).
  • This is a standard and necessary protection across the event industry (particularly aimed at the situation where a very late cancellation is forced upon the organizer/host at which point all the time and costs for hosting the event have been expended).
