Non-commercial Nature of IAEE's Education Program

To maintain the educational integrity of the education program, presenters are advised not to use their session(s) as a platform for promotion of their products and services or for monetary gain. IAEE provides a unique forum for professionals to have an open dialogue and a creative exchange of ideas free from commercial content.

Honoraria, Travel Expenses and Complimentary Registration

Persons selected to speak will be provided with the option of a one-day complimentary registration for the day of their presentation or a discounted rate for those who wish to attend the entire meeting.
