Terms & Conditions
Last updated: September 14, 2023
- This is a PRO Event: MarketingProfs' AI for Digital Marketers is an eight-week online event for PRO subscribers and event ticket holders. All PRO members with active subscriptions in good standing (meaning your account is not expired or canceled) may attend the live or watch the on-demand event presentations—as may those who have purchased tickets to the event separately. If you are not already PRO when you register, and you select the Go PRO option, you'll become a PRO member and you'll pay nothing more for your AI for Content Creators event registration (yay for you!). Should your account lapse, your registration and access will automatically be canceled.
- Price and Payment: PRO members may attend AI for Digital Marketers for free. The price for individual, non-PRO members is $229 for the event only, or $279 for the event + 12 months of PRO. If paying by invoice, we must receive your payment before upgrading you to PRO or providing access to AI for Digital Marketers or any other PRO content.
- Groups: If you have a group of three or more, you can buy passes for your entire group at $129 per person (remember, PRO members already register for free, so you don't need to pay extra for them). You can also upgrade to a PRO Team account for $179 per person and get the event plus 12 months of PRO benefits. After that, everyone on your PRO Team subscription can register for AI for Digital Marketers for free as PRO members.
- No Shared Passes: Each attendee requires a separate registration. PRO subscriptions, login credentials, and registrations for AI for Digital Marketers may not be shared.
- Promotions: From time to time, we issue limited-availability discount and incentive promotions for both PRO subscriptions and event registration. Such promotions only apply to qualifying individuals for qualifying products, and you may only apply one promotion per purchase. Discounts may neither be applied retroactively to prior purchases nor extended beyond the expiration date. Unless otherwise noted, promotions do not apply to workshops.
- Attendee Cancellations and Refunds: If you are not yet PRO and are purchasing AI for Digital Marketers as a single event, you may cancel your event ticket up to January 3, 2024—one week prior to the live event kickoff session—for a full refund. If you upgraded to PRO as part of your event ticket purchase, please see the PRO subscription refund policy for details about our seven-day refund policy.
- Cancellations or Postponements by MarketingProfs: MarketingProfs may cancel or postpone some or all AI for Content Creators presentations due to a change in circumstances at its sole discretion. In the event that the event or a specific presentation is rescheduled, your registration will transfer to the new date and time. Please see the Attendee Cancellations above for refund details should you wish to cancel your registration rather than attend the new date.

Reporting Unacceptable Behavior
Persons experiencing unacceptable behavior, or witnessing others being subjected to inappropriate behavior, are encouraged to report it by one of the methods listed below and provide as many details as possible.
- Remove yourself from the offender's presence, if possible.
- At an in-person meeting/event, contact venue security or dial "9-1-1".

To the extent possible, MarketingProfs will endeavor to keep the reporting concerns confidential; however, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. Reports may be made anonymously, although MarketingProfs can investigate and handle a complaint more effectively if the identities of the persons involved are known.
Follow-Up & Investigation
MarketingProfs' office will receive complaints, initiate an investigation, and take appropriate action. An on-site representative may handle that responsibility during an in-person meeting or event.
Upon receiving a report of unacceptable behavior, MarketingProfs' priority will be the safety and security of participants. Event staff will be available to help an affected participant as appropriate, including contacting venue security or local law enforcement, providing escorts, or assisting the affected participant in feeling safe for the event.
In most situations, the person investigating on MarketingProfs' behalf will discuss the complaint details first with the individual filing the report, and may also contact the alleged offender. Findings will be reported to the MarketingProfs executive in charge.
Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
Sanctions for violating this Code of Conduct may include:
- A verbal or written warning;
- Being denied access to the remainder of a meeting/event;
- Barring the offender from future meetings/events;
- Blocking the offender from online platforms; and/or
- Notifying law enforcement if it appears that laws were broken.
All determinations of appropriate or inappropriate behavior are at MarketingProfs' sole discretion, and the decisions of MarketingProfs' personnel will be final.
Retaliation against a person reporting harassment violates this Code of Conduct and will not be tolerated. It is also against MarketingProfs' policy to report an incident in bad faith. MarketingProfs will take action against any person found to be committing a willful violation.
