Registrant acknowledges and agrees that its participation in Event, including being a spectator or a participant in competitions or demonstrations is undertaken in the course of their employment or in the pursuit of their business interests. In order to ensure the Event achieves the goals it has set for participants Diversified reserves the right, in its sole discretion to limit or deny access or remove any entity or individual, including but not limited to those soliciting outside of exhibitor booths or other designated areas and those not deemed by Diversified as appropriate part of the industry the Event is serving as well as those disruptive to the Event by any means. In service of making the Event as inclusive as possible, provided appropriate precautions are taken, 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*. Diversified’s policies regarding allowable attendees and allowable behavior will be strictly enforced. All participants regardless of their age or their role (support providers who are not members of the industry are welcome) must be registered without exception and that registration badge shall be displayed upon request.

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.
