♦ Speakers and Panelists
a) IMTC attracts a number of experts and industry executives in different fields and areas that want to participate in the different events we produce. We choose speakers and panelists that we find interesting to all the participants to the Conference, Courses, Seminars and Workshops based on a wide variety of factors that change and evolve through time.
b) IMTC does not pay any fees to speakers for their presentations, nor “sells” speaker slots, and does not pay for travel or accommodations for speakers in presential events. We have made exceptions to this rule to participants from multilateral agencies, educational institutions, other non-profits and government officials, to encourage their involvement with the industry. Speaker and Panelists are normally required to pay for their registration into the conference but we do make the same exceptions.
c) IMTC gives priority to sponsors & exhibitors in designating a speaker or a panelist but reserves the right to accept such designation.
d) Most panelists are selected from the attendees already registered at the conference to lead or anchor a subject matter and open the discussion.
e) Most industry attendees are honored to be approached by IMTC and happily agree to be part of a panel, round-table, or discussion but, of course, participation is voluntary. Such participation is strictly done as individual-subject-matter experts and never on the name of the company they work for.
f) IMTC is not liable if a speaker or panelist is not able to be present at the time and place specified in the Agenda. IMTC is not in any way liable for the views and opinions of Speakers and Panelists invited.
