Responsibility for the information and views expressed at the event remain entirely with the conference participants. Neither Vertra nor any person acting on behalf of Vertra may be held responsible for the use which may be made of the information obtained through the event. Circumstances beyond the control of Vertra may require alterations to the program agenda, speakers and/or content including substitutions, cancellations, changes to topic and schedule, and delivery of the conference may change from in-person participation to virtual, online, and on-demand access or a combination of formats. Vertra reserves the right to change program date, meeting place, speakers and/or content, and convert your access to the conference from in-person to virtual, online and/or on-demand without further notice and assumes no liability for these changes.

Sharing any content provided is not permitted. Conference materials may not be shared with other entities. Each registration is designed for use by One (1) Authorized User and intended for use by the Authorized User only.

Health & Safety: As the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve, the event will adhere to the official government and local authority guidance in the province of Ontario, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. By confirming your registration, you acknowledge and agree to all Government safety requirements including but not limited to providing proof of full vaccination or a timely negative test as well as all other Covid-19 safety protocols necessary to conduct the conference. Participation will remain an individual decision to be assessed by the attendee and/or their organization in the absence or presence of any Government safety requirements. While Vertra and the conference venues we partner with may have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 during the pandemic, Vertra cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with Covid-19.

Substitutions are welcome at any time provided you notify Vertra at least two business days before the event. Client acknowledges and accepts that registrations are non-refundable and non-creditable after this time without exception. Conference materials purchases are non-refundable. Non-payment and failure to attend does not constitute cancellation. Vertra reserves the right to refuse registration and/or access to conference materials to any individual or organization considered by Vertra to be incompatible with the event. In the unlikely situation where Vertra concludes it is impractical or not possible to proceed with the event in-person or online, the Client will receive a full refund of the registration fees paid and accepts that Vertra, its associated companies and its employees shall assume no liability including responsibility for covering airfare, hotel, travel cancellation fees or consequential losses incurred by the Client as a result of the postponement, substitution, conversion of delivery format from in-person to virtual, or cancellation of an event for any reason including, but not limited to any force majeure occurrence.
