Photo Release

Attending the ACRM Annual Conference constitutes an agreement by the registrant to permit ACRM to use and distribute (both now and in the future and with no remuneration to attendee) of the attendee’s image or voice as captured in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions and audio files of events attended for any lawful purpose including, but not limited to, illustrating and promoting the conference experience.



Recording or photographing conference sessions, panel discussions or sponsor exhibits is strictly prohibited. Program PDFs and/or recordings will be made available to attendees who have purchased the World Pass or purchased access to these separately.



By registering, you agree not to solicit vendors or exhibitors.



We make our best judgment to assign rooms to the size that we think will match the estimated audience. Every year we try to improve this process. Seating is limited by the size of the rooms, and you are not guaranteed a seat in any session. Seating is first come, first served. Signing up for sessions that interest you in the ACRM app helps us to make sure the more popular sessions are held in the largest rooms to accommodate the most attendees.



To make the conference experience an enjoyable event for all attendees, we ask that you keep the following in mind:

  • As a courtesy to our speakers and other attendees, refrain from the use of pagers or cell phones during presentations. Participants of this conference are in attendance to learn so we ask that you take conversations unrelated to the program outside of the session rooms.
  • In order to accommodate environmental sensitivities of some attendees, if at all possible, refrain from or use moderate levels of scented products.
  • To maintain and demonstrate professionalism within our industry, conference attire is business casual.



Wear your badge at all times for access to conference events. Badges are not transferable.



For the comfort and health of all attendees, smoking is not permitted at any ACRM event. This includes general sessions, workshops, luncheons, receptions, and in the exhibit hall. You may smoke in designated areas located in the conference facilities.
