If a person engages in harassing behavior at EQUITANA USA, EQUITANA USA Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from EQUITANA USA with no refund.
Our policy applies to EVERYONE at the convention. Exhibitors, Attendees, Speakers, Guests, Professionals, Press, Staff, Volunteers and Security are all subject to our Anti-Harassment Policy.
Anyone can report harassment. If someone's behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact EQUITANA USA Staff, Security Team. You may also come to EQUITANA USA's Show Office. If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of EQUITANA USA.
