Registration Cancellation, Refund, and Substitution Policy

Cancellation requests must be emailed to by August 16 to receive a full refund on registration. Cancellations after August 16 will incur a cancellation fee of $49. Refunds are not approved for no-shows.

We accept substitutions at any time. However, badge sharing, splitting, and reprints are strictly prohibited.


Just steps away from the Tampa Convention Center, these hotels provided discounted rates for RTO World attendees.


If you need to cancel your hotel reservation, please contact the hotel directly at least 72 hours in advance of check-in to avoid a cancellation fee. You can cancel or adjust your reservations by following the link in your confirmation email, by logging into your hotel rewards account, or by calling the hotel at the number below:

  • Marriott Water Street: (813) 221-4900
  • Westin Waterside: (888) 236-2427
  • Embassy Suites Tampa: (813) 769-8301

FRAUD ALERT: Protect Yourself from Pirates

The hotel pirates are already at it this year, making fraudulent claims that they can set you up with hotel arrangements for our upcoming RTO World in Tampa, Florida. Protect your identity and your money. Never book a hotel room that’s not through the official room block link provided by APRO and TRIB Group.

Any other housing companies contacting you and offering hotel reservations at significant discounts are fraudulent. Protect yourself by not engaging with these emails or phone calls.

If contacted by someone other than APRO or TRIB Group, please forward the email to info@rtohq.

Event Cancellation or Postponement
RTO World reserves exclusive right to modify, postpone/reschedule or cancel programs for any reason, including but not limited to emergency, inclement weather or other ‘acts of God.’ If there is an event cancellation, every attempt will be made to reschedule, and registration fees will be applied to the rescheduled event date. Any travel, lodging, or incidental expenses incurred related to a canceled event cannot be refunded under any circumstances. If a canceled event cannot be rescheduled, RTO World will determine an equitable basis for the refund of a portion or all of the registration fees, after due consideration of circumstances and expenditures.
