Conference Policies


Your safety is a major factor in the success of NCVC. Because of the relevance and timeliness of some courses or speakers, overcrowding may occur. If this happens, NCVC must comply with the Fire Marshall’s regulations and limit access to a room that is full. We appreciate in advance your understanding and patience. We recommend that you arrive early for courses that you are especially interested in attending.


Mobile Device Policy

Please place your device on silent during lectures or labs. Under no circumstance should a call be made or taken in a lecture room during a presentation.

For sanitary reasons, the Raleigh Convention Center only allows service animals and animals used as part of an approved exhibit or event inside the facility. Otherwise, no animals or pets are permitted in the convention center.

Service Animals
Raleigh Convention Center welcomes all approved service animals recognized by the ADA. The role of service animals is to perform functions and tasks that an individual with a disability cannot perform for him or herself. Service animals are working animals, not pets. ADA approved service animals are currently limited to dogs and miniature horses.
