People pay anywhere from $29 to $199 to "come and get a recharge, and return to work pumped up and ready for serious business," said Brian Forte, vice-president for Get Motivated Seminars.
He said he is unaware of any attendees requesting refunds for missing part of the program, but said his company "will do everything to accommodate its customers."
Forte also praised Coffey's response.
"It's really unprecedented.We typically don't have a venue take responsibility for things like this, so we really appreciate that," he said.

On Sept. 7, that company filed a federal lawsuit in Tampa against Brian Forte and two of his related companies in Hillsborough County, alleging they stole trade secrets and other confidential information from Get Motivated.
Forte, a former senior vice president for Get Motivated Seminars who the lawsuit says left the company in December 2011, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Wolfe said Get Motivated planned to hold seminars in Denver in September and in Orlando in November, but had to cancel them because of "issues" with Forte.
On Sept. 7, that company filed a federal lawsuit in Tampa against Brian Forte and two of his related companies in Hillsborough County, alleging they stole trade secrets and other confidential information from Get Motivated.
Forte's Success Resources is scheduling its own seminars in the same two cities on the same dates, featuring celebrity speakers such as sports stars and politicians.
Wolfe seeks an injunction against Forte and his related companies to stop them from holding seminars that mimic ones developed by Get Motivated's creators, who founded the business in the 1980s.
The suit contends Forte is an owner, officer or director of the competing company set up by Tamara Lowe.

Brian Forte, a senior vice president at Get Motivated, said ticket prices used to be higher, but the company recognized that most people could not afford hundreds of dollars to get in.
"The only way for us to make this work economically is to produce an event that is so excellent that attendees and their companies will want to continue to do business with us," Forte said in an email statement.

"We have it all, from politics to sports to Hollywood," said Brian Forte, senior vice president of Get Motivated Seminars, based in Tampa, Fla. "The best part - it is at an affordable price."
Forte said the price is so low because of the economic downturn. He said the lower-priced seats are high up in the arena.
Prices start at $49 for an entire office at the Hampton Coliseum. Choice seating is available for those who are willing to pay more, he said.

Brian Forte, senior vice president for Get Motivated, said the problem was created by so many people showing up at once about the time the event started at 8 a.m.
"That's a lot of people at once," he said. "The arena has been great to work with, but they're not used to that many people coming at once. Most of our people show up right on time. That creates a challenge."
Forte said the organization didn't oversell the event.
"Much like the airline industry, sometimes people will book a seat and then not show up," he said. "We take all of that into account.
"We've been doing this for 30 years. We have a pretty good idea (how to put on an event)."
Forte estimated that 50 to 100 people had to wait to get in, but most of those eventually did get a seat Intrust or watched from Century II. He said anyone who asked for a refund would receive one.
Forte said groups who wanted to sit together but couldn't find enough seats at Intrust were sent to Century II on shuttle buses.
