Attendee Terms & Conditions
Any person, media representative, speaker, sponsor, or exhibitor who is present at a Type-A event (the “Event”) automatically agrees to the terms and conditions set forth below (the “Terms and Conditions”). These Terms and Conditions apply to each person (the “Attendee”) regardless of whether or not they have received a formal registration. Speakers and sponsors may be accountable for additional terms and conditions as described in the Speaker and/or Sponsorship agreements they’ve entered into separately with Type-A.
Influencer Media Group, Inc. (“Type-A”) reserves the right to render, in its sole and absolute discretion, all interpretations and decisions in connection with the Terms and Conditions and to establish further regulations binding upon the Attendee as may be deemed necessary to the general success and wellbeing of the Event and/or any person(s) affiliated therewith. Type-A’s decisions and interpretations shall be final in all cases.
Registration Badges. The Attendee’s registration badge must be worn at all times during the Event. Access to the Event facilities will not be granted to those without proper credentials. If an Attendee loses, misplaces, or forgets his or her registration, a replacement badge may be issued at full ticket price.
Age Restrictions, Allowances & Expectations. Attendees under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Attendees under the age of 21 may not attend receptions at Events unless prior written consent is obtained from Type-A, the hotel or convention center, and the reception Sponsor. In some states or counties, law may prohibit anyone under 21 from entering reception areas.
Attendees under the age of 2 years old may attend for free. Attendees over the age of 2 years old must be registered with a full-price pass to cover that Type-A and/or it’s Sponsors will incur for the child’s attendance at meals.
Type-A understands and appreciates that some Attendees cannot attend the Events unless they are able to bring their children. Type-A honors parents by allowing children to attend Events. In return, Type-A expects that Attendees with accompanying children will honor the other Attendees, many of whom have gone to great lengths to arrange for childcare at home, by not allowing their children’s behavior to disrupt the other Attendees’ experience. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Exiting sessions when your child is loud (whether unhappy or happy noises);
- Situating your family to the side or back of session rooms with children who aren’t held/seated. They are welcome to play on the floor and roam, so long as it’s not distracting other Attendees;
- Not allowing children to play with toys that make noises and/or flash lights, or watch videos without headphones.
Due to liability constraints, Type-A does not offer childcare options, toys, or equipment for children at events. However, Type-A welcomes Attendees traveling with children to contact the Event hotel or convention center to make arrangements for children. Type-A will work with Event hotel or convention staff to accommodate the arrangements you’ve made with them. Type-A also encourages Attendees traveling with children to connect with local Attendees to arrange for equipment (carseats, toys, cribs, etc) and childcare (private babysitters). Finally Type-A encourages Attendees traveling with children to connect with one another to arrange rotating schedules and equipment sharing.
Agenda Modifications. Type-A reserves the right to modify the Event agenda at any time and without notice.
Refund Policy for Event Registrations and Sponsorships. All Event registration and sponsorship sales are final and nonrefundable. A registration may be transferred to another individual, provided that this individual is not already registered and the registration is used for the same event (same date and location). There is a $50 fee to transfer the registration. This must be done by the deadline stated on the registration form, and approved in writing by Type-A using the email address registration -at- typeparent.com

Harassment Free Code of Conduct. (Adapted from the Conference Code of Conduct) Type-A is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexually provocative images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexually provocative clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create asexually provocative environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they’ll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.

Most meeting rooms at Events are wheelchair accessible. Attendees who require onsite assistance during the Event should request it at the desk in the registration area.
