AFM Badges (also referred to as “Badges”) must be worn and displayed at all times during the AFM and shown to AFM security whenever requested by AFM security. Certain AFM Badge categories allow access to most AFM screenings but do not guarantee access to every AFM screening. Badges must be shown to AFM security in order to access restricted areas of the AFM. If any Participant wears a Badge other than his or her own, AFM security will ask the Participant to surrender the Badge. Failure to comply with such request may result in the Participant being barred from participating in a current or future AFM(s). Surrendered Badges will not be returned to the Participant; however, if the surrendered Badge belongs to an Exhibitor, the Exhibitor will be contacted regarding the surrendered Badge.
Lost or stolen non-transferrable Badges must be reported to AFM security and there may be a 24-hour period before a new Badge is issued. IFTA is not required to issue a replacement Badge. IFTA will not issue a replacement for lost or stolen transferrable Badges.
Counterfeit badges are strictly prohibited. If any Participant is found wearing a counterfeit badge, AFM security will ask that Participant to surrender the counterfeit badge, that Person will be excluded from the restricted areas of the AFM, and the Participant will be denied access to the public space of the Hotel. Any Participant found to have produced, used, distributed, authorized, sold, or in any other way participated in the use of a counterfeit badge will be subject to fines or other sanctions, including prohibiting such Participant, its Affiliates, and/or any or all of its employees from participating in a current or future AFM(s). The AFM, including AFM security, may refer such individuals and organizations to law enforcement authorities in its sole discretion.
In the event that an AFM Badge has been revoked, IFTA shall have the absolute right to prohibit that Person’s entry into the AFM. Also, in such event, the Person shall not be entitled to a refund or rebate of any fees previously paid to IFTA relating to the AFM, nor shall IFTA be responsible in any way for any of the costs which the company, or such individuals, may have incurred in connection with, preparation for, or attendance at the AFM.
