Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Code of Conduct

At SupplySide West and Food ingredients North America, our goal is to connect buyers and sellers and support the flow of business and trade within our industry.

This can only be achieved if we create and maintain an environment where ALL people are treated with dignity, decency, and respect. As such, we expect every "participant" in any manner whatsoever, including, but not limited to, all exhibitors, attendees, speakers, guests, professionals, media, staff members, workers, contractors, vendors, security, or anyone else who participates in any way, to behave appropriately and in accordance with our Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Code of Conduct.

Each participant is solely responsible for their own conduct while participating in the event or any part of the event.

Code of Conduct Rules:

Please be aware of and respect the personal boundaries of your fellow participants so that everyone can enjoy their time at the event.

Informa has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for discrimination or harassment of any kind including, but not limited to:
  • offensive verbal comments
  • threats
  • inappropriate physical contact
  • unwelcome physical attention
  • stalking
  • intimidation
  • physical assault and/or battery
  • harassing or non-consensual photography or recording
  • sustained disruption of presentations and other events
  • bathroom policing
  • sexually explicit, suggestive and/or provocative behavior or signage
  • hate symbols

On account of (without limitation):

If a person engages in behavior in violation of this Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Code of Conduct at any time, Informa will take prompt action in any form deemed appropriate, including expulsion from the event with no refund.

Our policy applies to EVERYONE participating in an Informa event. ALL participants are subject to this Code of Conduct.

Anyone can report discrimination or harassment to event staff/security at any time. If someone's behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness discrimination or harassment happening to someone else, you should immediately contact event staff/security. If necessary, security or event staff will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing discrimination or harassment.

When you submit a report and throughout the investigation process, your identity will be kept confidential to the best of our ability, consistent with best business practices. If preferred, you have the option to remain completely anonymous, but this does inhibit the investigation team's ability to get sufficient information to make the right determination about your case. Informa also has a zero-tolerance policy for retaliation, and if you feel someone has taken retaliatory action against you because you made a report or participated in an investigation.

As a Participant in an Informa event we appreciate your support of and cooperation with the Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Code of Conduct. Your cooperation helps us improve Informa Policies that uphold the integrity of our events.
