These terms (the “Agreement”) govern your online registration and attendance at the event, that can be held either online or in presence (the “Event”).

By registering for the Event on the website https://connect.board.com (the “Website”), as well as by otherwise submitting your information to Board, for the Event, you are agreeing to these terms, which form a legal agreement between Board International SA or its subsidiaries (“Board”), and the registered attendee (“you”). If you are registering on behalf of another individual, it is your responsibility to ensure that the person attending is aware of these terms and accepts the same and, by completing and submitting the registration, you warrant that you have made the attendee aware of these terms and that they have accepted the same. If you do not wish to be bound by these terms, please do not register or attend the Event.

2. Ticket and Admittance

Once the registration is successfully finalized on the Website or otherwise confirmed by Board, you will receive a confirmation email for the Event to the email address you have provided.

The confirmation email shall be deemed as a valid attendance permission and so it can be used to gain entry to the Event.

Board, in its sole discretion, and without any liability or obligation to refund, reserve the right to refuse admittance to or to eject from the Event anyone that Board determines:

The Event may be subject to limited availability. Board may reject your attendance request should the maximum number of tickets available has already been sold out.
