In a situation where this is unavoidable, access will be allowed onto the tradeshow floor during show hours but the parent/guardian will be responsible for ensuring appropriate behavior is maintained and any unforeseen damages. No on-site daycare is available. Note: Due to the professional classroom setting, no children are allowed in the seminars.
