Is there a policy on demonstrations during the Summit?

NMAC’s Community Engagement Policy states that those who will be organizing demonstrations or protests during any part of the Summit, including the Exhibit Hall, must:

  1. Inform NMAC’s Conferences and Meeting Services staff (conferences@nmac.org) ahead of time and designate a contact person for your demonstration.
  2. Limit all demonstrations in the conference exhibit hall to the hours of 10am and 2pm.
  3. Limit all demonstrations to no more than 15 minutes.
  4. Hold no more than one demonstration per day.

NMAC reserves the right to determine whether a demonstration is disruptive and/or detrimental to the mission and values of the Summit. We require all attendees to follow these policies. If you do not, you may be escorted out of the conference and be banned from attending future NMAC sponsored conferences and events.

NMAC and its program partners encourage freedom of expression, however we oppose the disruption of conference sessions, satellite meetings, or exhibitions that results in the inability of attendees to take full advantage of the learning and educational opportunities available at the event.
