The MAICON Code of Conduct
MAICON represents a critical opportunity to explore the next frontier in digital marketing transformation. It is an environment intended for discussion, learning, and problem-solving.
As such, we’ve designed MAICON to be a safe, positive space for attendees, speakers, sponsors, staff, volunteers and other guests.
We expect all conference participants to abide by this code of conduct during the conference and at all conference-related events. Together, we can create the ideal environment to discover the present and future potential of artificial intelligence.
