Private Event Policies
Private events may not conflict with scheduled Forum events (including sessions, workshops or receptions) including any event before, during and after an IAMC event that involves IAMC members.
There is a limit of 10 Active members per private event during the Forum. And, private events must be registered with IAMC.

Over the course of North American Forums, Saturday evening is reserved exclusively for the Host Committee Dinner, and IAMC's Welcome Reception and Dinner is held on Sunday evening. On Monday and Tuesday evenings nights, after IAMC networking receptions, many Associates members host private events.
Effective April 13, 2017, Service Provider event hosts must be a Forum sponsor at the bronze level or higher. Economic Developers may individually or collectively host a private event as long as one of the economic development hosts is a bronze sponsor or above and the invitation and marketing material must indicate the event hosts that are sponsors.
- IAMC offers no partial or daily registrations
- Personal guests must register to attend any or all of the Professional Forum meetings and events
- Personal guest registration may NOT be used by co-workers or industry peers

The official IAMC Professional Forum badge is required for admittance to all events. This applies to all registrants and personal guests so that no one infringes upon space reserved for IAMC attendees, either unknowingly or purposely. Badges must be displayed for all meeting sessions, social functions and other events. Anyone attempting to enter IAMC events without proper identification will be challenged and may be denied admittance.
