Has the Robert O’Neill lecture been rescheduled?

The previously postponed April 7, 2020 lecture with Robert O’Neill has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 18, 2021 at the Sea Pines Resort in the Harbour Town Clubhouse Champions Ballroom. Guests will be given the option to choose between two separate seating options: 4:00 PM ET or 7:30 PM ET.

Do I need to exchange my previously purchased Lowcountry Speaker Series 2020 subscription ticket or individual Robert O’Neill ticket for a new ticket for the rescheduled event?

Yes. Because our venue has changed to the Sea Pines Resort Harbour Town Clubhouse, your originally selected seats are no longer valid. Rest assured that the Champion’s Ballroom offers a much more luxurious and intimate setting, and we will make every effort to place you in a comparable seat. To help with this process, please fill-out the NEW VENUE SEATING FORM no later than November 11, 2020. Once we receive responses from all existing guests, we will re-issue new tickets via Eventbrite before November 25, 2020.

Why are there two separate seating options for the Robert O’Neill lecture?

Your safety and welfare are of the utmost importance, and we are taking all necessary precautions to plan, prepare, and proceed with a successful live post-quarantine event. Currently, South Carolina recommends mass gathering limits to less than 250 people. We are optimistic that, in the coming months, these guidelines will become less restrictive.

Part of our plan is to reduce the number of guests in attendance by offering two separate seatings in Sea Pines’ Harbour Town Clubhouse Champions Ballroom for Robert O’Neill’s lecture: Group 1 Lecture 4:00-5:30 PM and Group 2 Lecture 7:30-9:00 PM. Each ticket-holder will also have the option to view the lecture virtually via live stream.

Will there be an option to participate in the Robert O’Neill lecture virtually?

Ticket holders that opt not to attend the face-to-face event at the Harbour Town Clubhouse Champions Ballroom will be provided virtual viewing access via live stream.

What if it is deemed unsafe to attend large gatherings when the Robert O’Neill event is scheduled to take place?

We will reschedule.

Are refunds for the Robert O’Neill lecture being provided?

If you purchased ticket(s) to the originally-scheduled April 7, 2020 event and would like to request a refund, refunds are now being honored on an individual basis. Because there have been so few refund requests, there is no guarantee you will be able to secure a new ticket once they are available for purchase on November 25, 2020. To request a refund, please email tickets@lowcountryspeakerseries.com and include your name and physical mailing address.

There is a no refunds or exchanges policy for tickets purchased on/after November 25, 2020.

When will tickets to the Robert O’Neill lecture go on sale?

Tickets for the Robert O’Neill lecture will be made available for purchase on November 25, 2020, after all existing guests have been reassigned seats from the previously postponed event.

Can I get a recording or transcript of the lectures?

By contract, the Lowcountry Speaker Series is strictly prohibited from distributing video, audio, or written transcripts of any presentation.
