At time of check in, you may be asked to provide a form of photo identification. Attendee badges must be worn at all times in Event areas.

It is solely your responsibility to comply with any government visa requirements and failure to do so does not constitute a basis for a refund.

Although every effort is made to ensure that the material related to Conference, such as maps, agendas, programs, etc. are distributed to all attendees, IFA does not guarantee a copy of such materials to every attendee.

IFA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) refuse to accept or to retain any person as a registrant of the Conference, at any time in its sole discretion, and (ii) make such alterations to the program, or any part of it, in any manner and at any time as it deems necessary or desirable.
