OpenWest Conference is committed to creating a conference that is as inclusive as possible. We want to showcase talent available around the U.S. and welcome international submissions as well.

We are also committed to ensuring the conference is a place where ideas are exchanged, old friends get together, new friends meet and harassment is not tolerated. We expect speakers, attendees and sponsor representatives to be professional and courteous to each other. We reserve the right to remove, without refund, ANY attendee (speaker or otherwise) who is unable to adhere to this policy.

Audience Peculiarities

It's always good practice to know your audience. Many of the OpenWest Conference attendees are Utah residents who prefer workplace appropriate language. Obscene remarks or the heavy use of profanity will not be appreciated by the majority of attendees.
