This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behaviour as well as the consequences for unacceptable behaviour.
We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive event experience for everyone.
- Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative.
- Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and speech.
- Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert event organizers if you notice a dangerous situation or someone in distress.
- Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you help to create eCom Wave 2022 and make it your own.

Consequences of unacceptable behavior
Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated whether by other attendees, organizers, venue staff, sponsors, or other patrons of eCom Wave 2022 venue.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behaviour, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the event without warning.
What to do if you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior
