Sexual language and imagery, verbal threats or demands, offensive comments, intimidation, stalking, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact — all are not appropriate for any conference venue or conference-related events.
We expect event participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related events. At HardwareCon’s sole discretion, event participants violating this Code of Conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from an event without a refund, and/or banned from future HardwareCon events.If you experience or witness a violation of this Code of Conduct, please inform:

Exhibitors in the expo hall(s), sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to this Code of Conduct. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material, and booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
