Admission, Refunds, and Other Boring Stuff

Conference Admission

Conference admittance is restricted to registered Attendees displaying an official badge. All personnel representing an Exhibitor or its authorized agents must be properly identified with an official badge.

Cancellations, Refunds, and Registration Transfers

Show Management reserves the right to cancel, change location of, or amend Event programs, speakers, or other activities as necessary.

Show Management has the absolute right to cancel any Attendee registration and this Agreement with any Exhibitor or Attendee if such fails at any time to comply with any of the terms, provisions or conditions of their respective application, registration, or this Agreement.

Badge Replacement Policy, Attendee Refunds and Attendee Transfers

Do not lose your badge. Badges are non-replaceable if they become lost. Badges are necessary for any Event function and to gain access to the Facility. Exhibitors, Attendees, and any Event guests are required to display their badge at all times. If you are asked to show your Event badge, please do so.

Attendees may request a full refund of their registration fee up to ten (10) business days before the Event. Show Management shall make its best efforts to refund such Attendees within 30 days.

Minors & Children

InfoSec Southwest welcomes those excited to learn about information security and hacking of all ages, but is targeted toward adults. We ask that minors be accompanied by parents or legal guardians at all times.

Attendees under 21 will not be allowed to participate in our Reception or Project Mayhem.

Americans with Disabilities Act Accommodation

Show Management not only welcomes, but encourages, the participation of those with special needs and will work to make participation in the Event as accessible as possible. Attendees and Exhibitors must communicate any special needs within 3 months of the Event.

Each Exhibitor shall have the sole responsibility for ensuring that its exhibit is in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and any other laws and regulations on disabilities or accessibility. Exhibitors agree to comply with all laws and regulations that apply to their exhibit space. The Exhibitor will ensure the accessibility of its exhibit space and agrees to hold harmless and indemnify Show Management, the convention facility and the official contractors against any claims, damages or loss, including attorney’s fees and costs, arising out of or related to any alleged ADA violation. Necessary compliance efforts may differ with the nature of the exhibit so exhibitors should consult their own attorney regarding these requirements.

Animals

Service and assistance animals are permitted in all public areas and at all times. No other animals will be permitted in convention space.
