As a condition of my participation in a Petroleum Equipment Institute meeting or event, I hereby waive and release any claim I may have against PEI and its officers, directors, employees or agents, or against the presenters or facilitators, and release these parties from and against any and all liability for damage, illness or injury that may arise from my participation or attendance at the event.

PEI is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all meeting participants. All participants, including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, sponsors, PEI staff members, vendors, and all others are expected to abide by this Event Code of Conduct. 

As a meeting attendee, you agree to refrain from the following:

  • Harassment, intimidation, or discrimination in any form.

Examples of  verbal abuse include, but are not limited to, verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, national origin, inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces or in presentations, or threatening or stalking any attendee, speaker, volunteer, sponsors, PEI staff member, vendor, or other meeting guest.
