Code of Conduct
We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free, educational and enjoyable event experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race or religion. To that end, this code of conduct details the behaviour we don’t support.
All communication and interactions should be appropriate for a professional audience. Comments or images that are defamatory, slanderous, discriminatory, obscene or of a sexual nature are prohibited.
Harassment includes offensive verbal or online based comments in relation to the above, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
We do not tolerate harassment of attendees, speakers or staff in any form during conference sessions, online or on the expo floor. Any delegates violating these rules will be asked to stop any harassing behaviour immediately and subsequently may be removed from the show without refund or liability.
If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed, or have any other concerns please contact the organisers immediately via the registration desk or speak to a member of security.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti harassment policy. Sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities or uniforms, which in any way could create a sexualised environment.
The use or dissemination of illegal drugs or abused prescription medication of any kind is strictly prohibited. Anyone found with or using illegal substances will be removed from the venue and banned from all future events. The consumption of limited amounts of alcohol is permitted during specific times and at designated locations by those who are of legal drinking age only.
All delegates are asked to please drink responsibly. If you have consumed alcohol and require assistance, please let the conference organisers know via the registration desk.
We thank all of our delegates and partners for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful and friendly to all participants.
