In service of making the Event as inclusive as possible, minors may be registered to attend by the adult who will be responsible for them. No one under the age of 18 will be permitted to register themselves, and individuals under the age of 21 will only be granted limited Event access. For safety, children will not be allowed on the show floor during setup days. For more information and guidelines, visit our Terms & Conditions page or contact our team.

Yes! In partnership with &Mother, there will be a Mamava pod—a dedicated, private lactation space—located in Hall One of the exhibit hall, near the concessions. This lactation space will be designated on maps both within the event mobile app and event signage, denoted by the international lactation symbol in &Mother fuchsia. Please note that outlets, refrigeration, and seating will be available. There will also be a mother’s room outside of the exhibit hall on the third floor of the Austin Convention Center.

Whatever you’d like! Most visitors wear comfortable clothing and sneakers.

Our 2024 Call for Education will open in April. Those interested in speaking are encouraged to submit a session proposal at that time. If you see one of our staff members at TRE, though, feel free to share your ideas!

Registrations may be cancelled if written notice is timely provided to [email protected]. However, Registration fees paid are non-refundable. Substitutions of registrants may be made to other employees at the same company at any time up to the start of the Event. Once a badge (either physical or virtual) is issued it cannot be transferred to another. Those in attendance whose identity does not match an issued badge may be removed and precluded from participation in future Diversified events. If an event is canceled by Diversified and a registrant does not timely request a refund or confirm what other event or service the fees should be applied toward, such fees will be forfeited.
