TERMS OF PURCHASE

Code of Conduct

World Congress is committed to an event experience that is welcoming to all. Any behavior that harasses, threatens, or intimidates others - for any reason - will not be tolerated. Those found to be in violation of this code will be expelled from the event without a refund and may be banned from future World Congress events at the discretion of World Congress.

Promotional Policy

Attendees may not promote any competing products, companies, or events to conference attendees either on or off the event property without permission from World Congress. Organizations found to be in violation of this policy may be expelled from the conference without a refund may be banned from future World Congress events at the discretion of World Congress.

Vendors (Policy for attending conferences, without sponsoring or exhibiting)

World Congress, like almost all other conference organizers, expressly prohibits individual delegates from engaging in sales, marketing, or business development, outside of official sponsor or exhibit status. Our conference supporters invest in these meetings, for access, prestige, and exposure, and earn the right to promote themselves. As a delegate, your fee is intended to learn from the sessions and network with other like purposed executives. A delegate fee does not include active prospecting and client engagement. Sponsors and exhibitors will be upset to see such abuse of the delegate pass, and will be correct in advising show management of the breach. If observed, your pass will be immediately revoked without refund, and your account will be updated to be prohibited from future events.

Please respect the World Congress policies and purchase the appropriate program for your goals and objectives. Our sales team can develop cost effective strategies that include sponsor level access to delegates, mail list, marketing, and personal strategy support. Thank you for your cooperation
