A/V Recording Policy

Due to the large number of proprietary new products and prototypes being displayed at IBEX, the taking of photographs in the exhibition hall is restricted and video is strictly prohibited. You must have a press badge or have prior written approval to use a camera on the show floor. To obtain permission for on-site photography, please contact Andrew Golden at Exhibitors retain the right to restrict photography of their products or displays, and such decisions are within the discretion of the exhibitor and are not controlled by IBEX. If you use a camera without permission, you will be escorted off the show floor and your badge will be confiscated. In addition, IBEX speakers and attendees are encouraged to openly discuss proprietary matters; therefore audio or video recording of IBEX seminars is strictly prohibited.
