Health Care Quality Congress Disclaimer

The Health Care Quality Congress, its contractors, and attending news media may be photographing or videotaping scientific sessions and events at the meeting. By attending Health Care Quality Congress, attendees acknowledge these activities and agree to allow their image to be used by the Health Care Quality Congress in association publications, on the Health Care Quality Congress website, and in marketing and promotional materials.

No refunds will be issued after August 22, 2018 for any reason—no exceptions.

Children

Under no circumstances will children under the age of 18 be allowed at the conference or in the Exhibit Hall during installation or dismantling. For insurance reasons, children under the age of 18 are not permitted on the show floor. Due to limited seating capacity and the highly technical nature of the programs, children under the age of 18 are not invited to attend presentations.

Session Seating

Seating is limited for all session rooms and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
