This policy is strictly enforced.

3) For guaranteed entrance to the event, please purchase your ticket by paying for it as it is a very nominal price that confirms to us that you will be attending and take this opportunity seriously. Complimentary tickets purchased using a code can be cancelled at any time leading up to the event if we hit our capacity. If you get a complimentary ticket using a promotional code, please note that the attendance will be on a first come basis on 28th September until we reach the capacity. Given the high number of no-shows associated with free tickets, having a complimentary ticket does not guarantee you entrance to the expo as it will depend on the day. We encourage you to come at 10:30 to maximize your chance.

3) Due to the nature of the business, exhibitors or leaders may change at any point.

4) The breakout room seating is on first come and first serve basis. Registration starts at Expo opening. The breakout rooms are extremely popular and are sold out months in advance every year. Please arrive well before 11:00 to secure your spot as we cannot guarantee it once the event starts.
