As in past years, many of the presentations from the conference will be available on our website shortly after the conference. Some sessions at the conference will be videotaped, webcasted, live streamed, audio recorded, and/or photographed so service providers will have access to the content online after the event. The camera(s) will be pointed at the speaker for sessions that are videotaped or photographed. If you do not wish to be photographed, audiotaped, or appear on video you may ask our staff where the cameras are pointed to be sure you are sitting in an area that is not being recorded. By remaining in the immediate vicinity, you are giving your consent to videotape, record, photograph, live stream and/or webcast your picture, likeness, voice and statements online. You can speak to Best Start Resource Centre staff if you have any questions or concerns. Staff will be wearing ribbons that say "staff".

Perfume and scented products are very common and popular. Unfortunately, scented products cause negative respiratory reactions for some people. In some instances, these products make them very sick. Health Nexus asks participants to respect the needs of other conference attendants and refrain from wearing scented products. This includes hand lotions, perfumes, oils, etc.
