If you need help

If you have an emergency, use the emergency contact information below or approach event staff immediately for assistance.

If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, or if you see someone else who needs help, please approach event staff or email the Code of Conduct Team. You are welcome to bring a friend along for support.

We are here to help make this a safe and welcoming environment for you. Even if you feel like your concern is small, or if you are not sure something is an issue, we encourage you to let us know. We're good at listening to people and are often able to offer advice for seemingly minor things.

For more information on what kind of help to expect from event staff and the Code of Conduct Team, or to report an incident online, please visit our reporting incidents page.

How to seek help

In person

Members of the Code of Conduct Team will be identified at the conference opening. You can approach them at any time and they will help you. If you are unsure who to approach, our event staff (identified by their colored shirts) can direct you to a member of the Code of Conduct Team.

When talking to you, we will make sure you are safe and cannot be overheard. Other event staff may be involved to make sure your report is managed properly. Once safe, we'll ask you to tell us what happened. We understand that this process could be upsetting for you, and we'll handle it as respectfully as possible. You can bring someone to support you.
