Program Changes and Session Policies

Informa Tech, producers of the XRDC, reserve the right to make changes in the programs and speakers, or to cancel sessions if enrollment criteria are not met, or when conditions beyond its control prevail. Seating for all sessions and programs is on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrive early to ensure a seat! Recording devices and cameras - still or video - are prohibited.

Event Badges

Badges will be available for pick up on-site with your photo ID. Collecting multiple badges by a single person is not allowed. Please bring a copy of your receipt as verification of your registration. Touch 'N Go NFC badges will be in use at the event.

PLEASE TREAT YOUR BADGE AS CASH: A non-refundable replacement fee equal to the original purchase amount will apply to all lost, duplicate, misplaced, stolen, or forgotten badge requests. If your badge was complimentary, the fee will be the current on-site rate.

You can save 10% if you purchase 3 or more passes. Please note that the group discount applies only to the current registration price and additional discounts are not combinable with the group discount. Learn how to register your group here.
