It is the policy of IPI to hold meetings, conferences and other professional events where barriers of any type do not exclude people from attending or participating.

Use of Personal AssistantShould you require an aide or personal assistant to help navigate the IPI Conference and Expo, IPI will register your aide as a complimentary guest.

Food AllergiesIPI is diligent about handling food allergies for all IPI events. Onsite, all food is labeled by the facility to provide attendees with potential allergens. Upon registration for IPI meetings, please make sure to answer the question about specific allergies so that the registration system can capture your responses and specific information.
IPI's goal is to have a varied menu to appeal to the majority of attendee's dietary needs.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to ask specific questions about your allergy.
