March 23-25, 2022

Toronto, ON

…and online!

We can’t wait to welcome NAMT members to our first-ever Spring Conference in Canada! Join us in Toronto — or online — to discuss the future of marketing in 2022 and beyond. (We are watching COVID news and shutdowns closely, and will adjust our plans as needed. As of now, we are moving forward with plans for an in-person Spring Conference with vaccines and masks required and all local and travel regulations followed. This will also be a hybrid event, allowing even more members to attend remotely.)

Important pre-event information will be sent via email. Please provide each attendee’s information on the registration form. You may register multiple attendees from the same organization, and you may combine in-person and online registrations on the same form.

Check payments must be received by March 14, 2022. If a registration is canceled due to non-payment, attendees may have to re-register at the current pricing.

Guidelines

Participation Guidelines

NAMT is committed to recognizing and celebrating the diversity of experiences, talents, skills, cultures and opinions that our members bring to our community, and specifically to our events. We invite you to participate in all of our Conferences, Roundtables, Festivals and other events, both online and in-person, in a spirit of open-mindedness, curiosity and respect.    

We want every NAMT event to be a safe, inclusive and productive environment for all participants. In that spirit, we ask you to…

  • Be inclusive, actively seeking and inviting diverse perspectives
  • Recognize that some people are comfortable responding quickly and verbally and others are not, and create space for those who may need more time to be heard
  • Listen to understand
  • Participate in an active and direct way, with professionalism and respect for others
  • Be considerate, kind, constructive and helpful in your language and actions
  • Use “I” statements and avoid generalizations
  • Assume good intentions but acknowledge impact
  • Ask questions if something isn’t clear, and receive both questions and answers with openness and generosity
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and language
  • Respect confidentiality requests by speakers and other participants

We may take action (up to and including expulsion with no refund and exclusion from future events) to redress disruptive, disrespectful or offensive behavior or any other actions perceived by NAMT staff and/or Board to be in conflict with the above guidelines. 

We know that learning and working together can produce both joy and conflict. We recognize that to learn is to stumble, and we are striving to provide a space for risk, creativity, respect, appreciation, growth and collaboration. When addressing conflicts of any type, we commit to these Participation Guidelines.

Thank you to every NAMT community member for helping to make all of our events informative, inclusive and respectful.

COVID-19 Info

Event COVID-19 Policies

Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine will be required for in-person entry to the Spring Conference. Guests who are unvaccinated due to a disability will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of entry to the event, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of entry to the event in order to attend. 

Guests can display proof of vaccination on a smartphone (including a government-issued electronic pass) or present a physical copy, along with a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport.

Masks are required in indoor public spaces in Ontario, when not eating or drinking, even if you are vaccinated.

It is essential that guests not enter the venue if they are unwell. We will make every accommodation possible in order for both NAMT staff and attendees to feel empowered to stay home if they feel unwell. Please let us know if you are unable to attend in person and we will be happy to change your registration to online so that you may join us remotely.

We are continuing to monitor city, provincial and federal guidelines as we plan for the Spring Conference. As public health conditions and guidance for public gatherings evolve, we will remain flexible and adapt to applicable health protocols. As such, these requirements may change.

If you do not intend to be vaccinated in time to attend the Conference in person, you may join us online!
