RIM recognizes that this is late notice for the change, and has reached out to let those already registered know that if they cannot attend DevCon Asia in Singapore, they can get a full refund on the fees they paid for registration. Those still wishing to attend the conference may be eligible for travel compensation, and should have been contacted by now with details on that.
As reported in the forums by CrackBerry member Thetnaung:
I have already contacted the firstname.lastname@example.org which is the official agent for booking and I got the offer as below.RIM has posted a Q&A on the BlackBerry DevCon Asia registration site for those needing further information. I also wanted to mention that in October, RIM contributed one million Thai baht (approximately $32,000) and 50 BlackBerry smartphones to support the relief efforts and victims of the floods in Thailand. RIM has also stated that they "believe it is important to have a future BlackBerry DevCon Asia take place in Bangkok. Not only as it is a great location for the event, but also as we feel it is important to support the local economy as it recovers from the floods."
"The relocation incentive program being offered by RIM is to cover up to $550USD towards a flight and hotel if you book through official vendor "burnaby solutions.com" for those users who were registered prior to conference in Bangkok."
