Statement of Appropriate Event Conduct
NAR aims to provide a safe event experience for all attendees and does not tolerate inappropriate behavior or harassment in any form. Inappropriate behavior includes harassing or defamatory verbal or written comments, displays of illicit images or use of illicit language, threats, intimidation and unwanted physical contact.
If, at any time, you feel threatened or harassed, you are encouraged to report the incident directly to police via 911 or contact a show management staff member. Staff can be found at Registration or in the Staff Office. Virtual attendees should email email@example.com. Please include the date, time, location and a description of the incident being reported. Attendees who violate this Statement of Appropriate Event Conduct may be asked to leave the event without a refund. In addition, the attendee may not be permitted to participate in future NAR events at the discretion of the association management.
We value your attendance and thank you for your cooperation to ensure a safe experience for all.

- Accessible seating is available in the general sessions. Please see a staff person for more information.
Service and Comfort Animals at NAR Meetings
Note that while trained service animals are allowed under the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act, comfort animals are not covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act. NAR does not allow comfort animals in the NAR meetings, at the convention center, in education session rooms and special event locations, or on the trade show floor.
What Qualifies as a Service Animal
If you are traveling with a service animal and your need for a service animal is not immediately obvious (e.g., a dog is guiding a blind person), you may be asked “Is this service animal required because of a disability?” You can answer “yes” to be granted access to the event with your service animal.
In accordance with ADA, event staff may not ask about a person’s disability, require medical documentation, require a special identification card or training documentation for the dog, or ask that the dog demonstrate its ability to perform the work or task.
Any other types of animals, such as cats, rodents, birds or snakes, do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and are not permitted at NAR meetings. Please see below for information on comfort animals.
WHEN CAN A SERVICE ANIMAL BE DENIED ENTRY OR REMOVED:
An individual’s service animal may be denied entry or removed from the meeting when:
- The service animal is out of control, and the owner does not take effective action to control it; or
- The service animal is not housebroken.
What Qualifies as a Comfort Animal
Comfort animals may be permitted at your hotel, depending on the individual hotel policies. However, NAR does not permit comfort animals at NAR meetings held in hotels, in convention center meeting rooms, on the trade show floor and at special event locations.
