Attendance Policy

Attendance is for members of AUVSI's industry ONLY. Individuals not in the trade should not attend. AUVSI reserves the right to accept or reject registrations and to cancel any previously accepted reservations, at any time, at its sole discretion, without liability to the registrant or any other party. This policy was instituted to maintain the professional environment of the AUVSI show, while protecting the interests of our attendees and exhibitors.

Loud, abusive, or defamatory language, harassment or other unprofessional or inappropriate behavior is not permitted at any time at the show. If such conduct is engaged in by a registrant, please be advised that AUVSI may cancel any previously accepted reservations, at any time, at its sole discretion, without liability to the registrant or any other party, and the registrant agrees to exit the premises immediately.

AUVSI show badges cannot be reproduced and once a badge has been picked up, it cannot be resold or transferred to another individual. The AUVSI show badge constitutes a limited revocable license to attend the current AUVSI show. AUVSI show badges are the property of AUVSI and may be revoked at any time for any reason. AUVSI badges must be worn at all times at the show.

AUVSI has sole discretion over admission at all times and shall strictly enforce all show rules. Attendees agree to abide by these attendance rules, which may be updated at any time. Violators risk immediate confiscation of their show badge without refund and removal from the premises. Violators will not be allowed re-entry.

AUVSI, its sole discretion, reserves the right to decline the registration of any applicant that may violate national security or export compliance laws, including U.S. economic sanctions. Applicants must provide full, truthful information when registering, in accordance with registration terms and conditions.
