Children

Under no circumstances will children under the age of 18 be allowed at the conference or in the Exhibit Hall during installation or dismantling. For insurance reasons, children under the age of 18 are not permitted on the show floor. Because of limited seating capacity and the highly technical nature of the programs, children under the age of 18 are not invited to attend presentations.
