All attendees of the 2018 Convention of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (“AG Bell”) agree to comply with all rules and conditions of the Convention, including all rules indicated on this website, in any written documentation, all future correspondence, and as may be posted at the Convention. 

Attendees of any Convention activity must wear the official Convention name badge. Name badges are required for admission to all events. Badges are closely monitored to prevent unauthorized persons from participating in the Convention. Convention registration may not be used for advertising, promotions, giveaways, sweepstakes or other trade purposes without express written consent of AG Bell.

Convention attendees must behave responsibly at all Convention events. Threatening physical actions or disorderly or disruptive conduct will not be tolerated and may result in removal from the Convention, denial of access to Convention facilities and other penalties.

Convention attendees voluntarily assume all risk and danger of personal injury (including death) and all hazards arising from, or related in any way to, the Convention, whether occurring prior to, during, or after the Convention, howsoever caused and whether by negligence or otherwise. Rules and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Convention attendees grant permission to AG Bell (and its designees and agents) to utilize the attendee’s image, likeness, actions and statements in any live or recorded audio, video or photographic display or the transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the Convention in any medium or context for commercial or promotional purposes without further authorization or compensation. All attendees authorize AG Bell to use photography taken during the course of the Convention in AG Bell promotional materials without remuneration. Convention attendees may not under any circumstances conduct any live or recorded audio, video or photographic activities without the express permission of the AG Bell Chief Executive Officer or Director of Communications and Marketing.
