Entering the conference site implies your agreement with all preventive and monitoring measures taken by IBB or the safety team of the event location including potential frisking and bag searches. Failing to comply with these measures will lead to refusal or withdrawal of the right of access.
You accept that the images, approved by you, interviews, and videos taken during the event are published and broadcasted on the radio, TV, in print media, books and online media without having any right to compensate.

Changes to the program are no reason for a full or partial refund of the event Ticket.

We reserve the right to substitute announced speakers and take other required changes concerning the event schedule to eliminate possible realization hurdles by preserving the event’s character and by accommodating all concerned interests.
