Attendee Registration and Admission Policy
OPIC, or their officially designated event management, in their sole discretion, reserves the right to accept or decline an individual’s registration for an event. Further, OPIC, or event management, reserves the right to prohibit entry or to remove any individual whether registered or not, be they attendees, exhibitors, representatives, or vendors, whose conduct is not in keeping with the character and purpose of the event. Without limiting the foregoing, OPIC and event management reserve the right to remove or refuse entry to anyone who has registered or gained access under false pretenses, provided false information, or for any other reason whatsoever that they deem is cause under the circumstances.
Access to Conference Events/Children Younger than 18
All conference technical and networking events require a badge for admission. Registered attendees may bring children with them as long as they have been issued a badge. Registration badges for children under 18 are free and available at the OPIC registration desk onsite. Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult at all times, and guardians are asked to help maintain a professional, disturbance-free conference environment.

By registering for an OPIC event, you waive any right to inspect or approve the use of the images or recordings or of any written copy.

To verify registered participants and provide a measure of security, OPIC will ask attendees to present a government-issued photo identification at registration to collect registration materials.
