Understandably, there may some questions about what’s in store for this year’s event. It is always our priority to continue to find new, creative and meaningful ways to safely bring together the northwest’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and to foster that near indescribable energy and connection that BVC brings. And with one COVID-era BVC under our belt, we are confident we will bring the best BVC to Central Oregon possible.

While the format and execution may look and feel a bit different this year, the impact for start-up companies remains the same. Join us as we make a difference for entrepreneurs!

If leading up to the event you have any symptoms associated with COVID-19 or have been direclty exposed to COVID-19, please do not come. Plan to join the conference virtually instead. We will refund you the price difference, just let us know.

We strive to comply with all gathering guidelines put forth by the CDC and the State of Oregon and individual venues. For example, as of today, the primary venue (Tower Theatre) is requiring proof of vaccine and/or a negative COVID test.

Event attendance comes with risks and an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By engaging in BVC, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation requests received by Friday, October 8, 2021, will receive a full refund.

Cancellation requests received between Saturday, October 9 – Tuesday, October 19, 2021, will receive a 50% refund. Other cancellations and no-shows will not receive a refund. We will, however, do our best to transfer a registration to another representative of your company at on-site registration.

If for any reason the conference needs to move to an all-virtual format, all in-person tickets will be converted to virtual tickets and the price difference will be refunded.
