Event Security
The safety and security of all attendees is PMI’s highest priority. In order to ensure a safe and productive event for all attendees, we request your cooperation in the following areas:

Clearly display your PMI name badge at all times.

  • Do not bring unnecessary items into the sessions (recording devices, video cameras, laser pointers).
  • Do not leave bags, briefcases, laptop computer/cases, luggage or other valuable items unattended at any time.
  • Whenever possible, do not bring valuable items to the symposium. Use the safe or lock-boxes provided in your hotel.
  • Immediately report any suspicious behavior to any PMI staff member or a member of the hotel.

Private Social Functions Policy for PMI Events
Hosted parties or meetings held by any company/entity that invites symposium delegates are not permitted to occur during any official PMI activity.

Photography and Videography on Premises at PMI Events
The use of cameras, cell phone cameras, video recorders and any other type of recording device is prohibited for any commercial or non-personal use in the Exhibit Hall, during any general session or keynote presentation, during educational sessions or in any PMI space in the hotel or any PMI contracted venue except by authorized PMI personnel. A professional photographer and videographer will be on-site to document events and activities. Photographs and videotapes are the sole property of PMI. By registering for and attending these events, attendees understand that PMI may use their likenesses for future promotional purposes. If you do not wish to be photographed, please notify the photographer/videographer on-site.

Professional Development Units (PDUs)
PMI will automatically register Professional Development Units, or PDUs, for all attendees of the congress. All educational sessions that are eligible for PDUs will have staff posted at entrances to scan for delegate PDUs. PDUs will be automatically be uploaded to the PDU transcripts of participating delegates that hold one or more of the following credentials: PMP, PgMP, ACP, RMP, SP. PDUs will appear on delegates’ transcripts within 72 hours from completion of the attended session.

It is your responsibility as an attendee to ensure your badge has been scanned if you want your PDUs recorded.

For questions regarding PDU reporting/scanning, please speak with an Experient representative at the on-site registration desks. For questions regarding the number and type of PDUs available per session, please speak with a PMI Customer Care representative at the information desk.
