HPBExpo Connect Event Platform

HPBExpo/HPBA has partnered with a third-party vendor to produce HPBExpo Connect 2021 virtually. HPBExpo/HPPBA cannot guarantee that the virtual event will operate without any interruptions or malfunctions. Any disruptions in the virtual platform to sessions that are being streamed, or any other incidents during the virtual event, that are out of the Show organizers’ control will not be eligible for a refund. Employees will be available to try to address technical difficulties where possible. HPBExpo/HPBA is not responsible for any issues that may arise due to the attendee’s internet provider or computer equipment.

Code of Conduct

By registering for HPBExpo Connect 2021, all attendees and exhibitors agree to the following Code of Conduct:

HPBExpo/HPBA is committed to creating a safe and inviting online environment for all attendees, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, nationality or religion. We invite all attendees to help make HPBExpo Connect 2021 a safe and welcoming space for all attendees.

All communication during HPBExpo Connect 2021 should be appropriate for a professional audience. We do not condone harassment of HPBExpo Connect attendees or participants in any form.

HPBExpo/HPBA strictly prohibits the act of “suitcasing” at the HPBExpo Connect event.  Suitcasing is the act of non-exhibiting companies soliciting business at the virtual event. Any virtual attendee who is observed to be suitcasing will be removed and barred from the platform immediately. Additional penalties may be applied.

Attendees are not permitted to copy material from the platform, whether by photographing, screenshotting, or video or audio recording content.

HPBExpo/HPBA reserves the right, at its discretion, to remove participants from the platform, without refund, for any unacceptable behavior or violation of the Code of Conduct.
