Granting Participant Registration and Admission
S.H.E. Globl Media, LLC or their officially designated event management (together and individually, “Event Staff”), in their sole discretion, reserve the right to accept or decline an individual’s registration. Further, Event Staff reserve the right to prohibit entry or remove any Participant or other individual, whether registered or not, whose conduct, in their sole opinion is not in keeping with the Code of Conduct, these S.H.E.

When you check in at registration, you will receive a name badge. If you lose your badge it can be replaced for a fee. You must wear your badge at all times during the conference. Individuals are not allowed to pick up badges for Participants other than themselves, unless Event Staff give approval in advance of the conference. Participants may not have another individual participate in their place at any S.H.E. Summit-related activity without Event Staff prior approval.

You agree not to request, proffer, or serve alcoholic beverages to any minors, or to any persons who, in the opinion of the Caterer or Event Staff, are intoxicated. For the health and consideration of all Participants, smoking, including e-cigarettes, is not permitted at S.H.E. Summit.
You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Event Staff from any and all claims, demands, and causes of action arising out of or relating to your participation in S.H.E. Summit and use of any associated facilities or hotels.
S.H.E. Globl Media, LLC will have no liability to you on account of any loss or damage resulting from any delay, failure, or cancellation with respect to S.H.E.

Globl Media, LLC (each a “Force Majeure Event”). If S.H.E. Globl Media, LLC should have to cancel S.H.E.
