See the FAQ's below to learn all the other ways we are working to ensure every's Health & Safety.


HEALTH & SAFETY: What is being done to ensure everyone's health & safety?

OVERALL: Health, safety and well being is always top of mind and more so than ever at this time. For this reason we will be continuously monitoring the CDC and WHO recommendations. Keeping in mind that achieving a safer environment is a shared responsibility, we will be following all precautions recommended. 

Current CDC recommendations can be found HERE

Current WHO recommendations can be found HERE

THE HOTEL: We have chosen the Ritz-Carlton Cancun because, in the seven programs we have hosted with them, they continually demonstrate incredible service and high integrity in their operations.

“Providing a safer environment for our guests and associates is a top priority. Achieving this is a shared responsibility. Please join us in our efforts to enhance the safety of our public spaces by complying with local regulations and wearing a face covering - which is required - whenever you're in public areas of the hotel.” ~ Ritz-Carlton

Click below to see all the Hotel is doing to ensure the safest possible experience while on property.

PROGRAM MEETINGS: For the safety of all guests we are keeping the in-person attendance limited to a maximum of 125. This allows us to set up seating that is both comfortable and with appropriate social distancing. 

TRAVELING: What are the requirements for going to Mexico?

There are currently no vaccination or COVID-19 testing requirements for entering Mexico. However, those entering will be required to complete a health survey upon arrival.

If you show symptoms of COVID-19 upon arrival, you should ask for the International Health Team (“Sanidad Internacional”).

If you do not have a direct flight, please ensure you also comply with the COVID-19 requirements of any transit country.

Click HERE to see the Mexican Government website on traveling to Mexico, which will be updated as required.

Please note it's also important to know the rules for re-entering your home country.

The COVID-19 situation, including the spread of new or concerning variants, differs from country to country. All travelers need to pay close attention to the conditions at their destination before traveling.

We are working in partnership with the Ritz-Carlton to make available a mobile testing site at the Ritz within 72hrs of all our guests return travels.

PAYMENT OPTIONS: What forms of payment and plans are available?

Accepted forms of payment include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Wire Transfer*, and Check*. Payments are to be made in US Dollars (USD).

When you register, you will have the option to pay in full, or with a minimum deposit of $2000 USD. You will be able to make payments at any time until the balance due date, July 5th, 2022.  After this date, you will need to pay in full at the time of registration. 

Registration will close on August 1st, 2022 or when all of the spots are taken, whichever comes first!

*If you choose payment by check or wire transfer when registering, payment must be received within 14 days. Registration will not be confirmed until payment has been received.

TRANSFERS & REFUNDS: If I cannot participate, can I transfer my registration to another person, or get a refund?

Cancelations: Refunds will be provided for written or electronic cancellations received no later than 2 calendar weeks (Aug 7) prior to the Program arrival date. The refund provided will be less the non-refundable hotel accommodation and administration fee of $2000. This retained fee will be available to be applied to a future iLumn8 Summit for up to 2 years. 

Transfers: A one-time only transfer of a registration fee to a new registrant will be accepted up to 2 calendar weeks (Aug 7) before the Program arrival date. 

No refunds or transfers will be provided after Aug 7, 2022.**

If it becomes necessary to postpone the Program, you will be transferred to the rescheduled date or have the option to cancel as stated above. 

For support with transfer or refunds, contact the iLumn8 Customer Success Person:

Email: [email protected]

Or call 1-972-360-9694 (ext 703)

**Exceptions can be made, on a case by case basis, in the event of a life emergency.  In the event you needed to cancel your participation after the program has begun due to such an emergency, the transfer policy as stated above would apply.  

GROUPS: What if I want to bring my whole team or company?

YES!! The Summit is a excellent opportunity for teams to come together to create or re-create a shared vision and gain the skills to make it a reality!!

For groups of 3 or more people, a Group Discount of $250 per person is available. 

Groups must be an already recognized group (i.e. work or professional group), they cannot be a loose affiliation of friends. 

To take advantage of the Group Discount, please email us at [email protected] and we will credit the members of the group with the discount.

SHARING OPTIONS: Are there shared room options?

Due to the pandemic and our commitment to keep everyone as safe as possible, we will not be matching people with roommates as we have in the past. 

However, you are welcome to invite your own roommate. There are a couple of options. 

ONE: Sharing with another program delegate.

  In this case, you and your roommate would both choose the type of package (Ocean Facing, Ocean View, etc.) you want and then choose the “Shared” option during the registration process. This reduces the cost of each guest's Summit Delegate Package by $1000.  

TWO: Sharing with a Non-Delegate guest. 

 With this option you pay only for the number of days your guest will be joining you.  

Register using the Single Delegate Package option of your choice. During the registration process, you will have the option to add a “non-delegate guest” at a per day charge, choose the number of days your guest will be staying with you. 

Non-Delegate guests are fully included in our negotiated resort packaging and will receive the teams full service and attention. This includes airport transfers, accommodation, gratuities & resort fees, breakfast & receptions. Along with spa discounts! 

The Package costs including ‘Non-Delegate’ guest cost are for the Summit dates only, Aug 21-28.  If you would like to add extra nights either before or after the Summit see the FAQ tab about EXTRA NIGHTS.

EXTRA NIGHTS: Can I stay extra before or after the program?

YES!! We have arranged for our guests to stay up to 3 nights before or 3 nights after the Summit at our low package rate. The EXTRA night rate is inclusive of accommodation, taxes, fees and gratuities for the extra number of nights chosen.

The rates are charged per night and vary slightly by room type:

OceanView - $225

OceanFront - $255

Suites - $440

IMPORTANT NOTE: These must be purchased through iLumn8 and cannot be booked through the hotel directly. If you attempt to book extra nights with the hotel you will be asked to change rooms, be charged a higher rate and additional fees will apply.

To book extra nights or get full price quotes, contact the iLumn8 Customer Success Person:

SCHOLARSHIPS: Are there scholarships available?

We know the Global Pandemic has made it financially difficult for many people AND we know that now, more than ever, we need support to plan and create BIG solutions for the BIG challenges we face.

If you would like to participate and just don’t have the available funds at this time, please send us an email introducing yourself to [email protected], make a request for what you need and scholarships will be provided on an as available basis
