    Please Note:  On occasion, an IOUG photographer may take photos of participants at COLLABORATE 16, or of people participating in conference functions or activities. Please be aware that these photos are for IOUGs use only, and may appear in IOUG conference programs, brochures, newsletters, website and other publications and materials. Your attendance constitutes your permission and consent for this photography and subsequent usage.

    Privacy Information:  Exhibitors are provided with a list conference registrants before and after the conference. This list contains your key application information only; no phone numbers or fax numbers and you are provided an opportunity to opt-out of e-mail address inclusion. Choosing to include your e-mail allows exhibitors to mail materials publicizing their booth as well as their products, services and other offers that will take place by their company booth before and after the conference.

    Many exhibitors collect business cards and most scan badges at their booths during the conference. If you offer your business card or have your badge scanned, IOUG views this as voluntarily providing information to the vendor and many vendors will offer a prize or other incentives in exchange for your information. This is how vendors build their marketing lists. If you receive vendor materials via email, please be assured they did not receive you contact information from IOUG unless you did not opt-out, or scanned your badge at that booth onsite.

    Registration Contacts

    For questions regarding registrations, cancellations and substitutions, please contact the IOUG Headquarters Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. central.
