We recognize the legitimate serving of alcoholic beverages in the process of conducting business and social activities.

We strongly oppose the abuse and misuse of alcohol.
Americans with Disabilities Act

Mobile/Cell Phone Policy
As a courtesy to the speakers and your fellow attendees, please turn off all mobile phones during meetings and sessions.
All OTC sessions are protected by US copyright laws. Photography and video/audio recording of any kind are strictly prohibited in the sessions and throughout the exhibition area.
One of the key components to the success of OTC is the safety of our attendees and presenters. Due to the popularity of some session topics, it is possible for overcrowding to occur in a session or meeting room. Should this occur, we must comply with the Fire Marshall’s policies regarding room capacity and limit admittance to a room that is at capacity. Please make plans to arrive early for sessions that you have a strong interest in attending.
In the event of an emergency, OTC staff and/or convention center staff will provide conference attendees with any necessary information and instructions.
Reliant Center and Reliant Arena are nonsmoking facilities. Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the centers except in designated smoking areas.
