Frequently Asked Questions

What are Angelbeat's privacy and optin/optout policies

Each attendee acknowledges/understands that financial support from Angelbeat sponsors allows him/her to attend this event at no cost, and that the sponsors will be given your contact information 2 days after the event for follow-up email and telephone communications. All sponsors are required to provide you with an opt-out option, allowing you to be removed from their database.

However each attendee can opt-out of sponsor follow-up by informing Angelbeat staff at the event, or by emailing Angelbeat immediately after the event, but before Angelbeat releases the attendee list to the event sponsors.

If you have any questions regarding Angelbeat’s privacy policies and how your contact information is used, please contact CEO Ron Gerber directly at 516-277-2057 or at

What if I am a government employee and cannot accept free meals and/or win raffle prizes

If you are a government employee and cannot accept free meals, then you can pay Angelbeat $35/person, to cover the cost of breakfast. Please contact the event organizer at to arrange payment.

Each sponsoring company/exhibitor handles its own raffle prize drawing; Angelbeat itself has nothing to do with these prizes and attendees are not automatically entered for any raffle prize drawing. Since each attendee must individually signup to win a raffle prize, then government employees (who are not eligible to win these prizes) can simply not signup for the drawing.

Who is eligible to receive a free pass

There is no charge to attend for an end user IT professional who works in the telecom/IT/networking/security/data center/desktop/purchasing departments of corporations (private and publicly-held, large and small), universities, school districts, government agencies, hospitals, manufacturers, retailers, banks, financial services firms, insurers, real estate/construction/property management, insurance/brokerage agencies, pharmaceutical companies, law/accounting/consulting firms, trucking/transportation/logistic firms, etc. and use, support, purchase and/or are involved in or influence the purchase of products and services offered by our sponsors. If you are a government employee and have limitations/restrictions on your ability to attend free events, then please contact the Angelbeat team by clicking below. For instance, some individuals simply reimburse Angelbeat for the cost of the meals, to avoid any perception of conflict-of-interest.

All free attendees must be pre-approved in advance by Angelbeat and Angelbeat reserves the right to accept or reject a free pass request at its sole discretion. As a general policy Angelbeat does not offer free passes to individuals at companies that are looking to sell their products/services to the end user personnel described above who attend our events at no charge. If you fall in this category and would still like to attend then the fee is between $100 to $300/person. To sign up please complete the credit card form on the eventbrite page for that city. If you are a non-sponsoring vendor/integrator/consultant and would like to attend but avoid paying this fee, then you must be accompanied by one of your clients who has not previously registered, and is a CIO, CISO or IT Director that meets the end user criteria above. Full-time reporters from major newspapers, websites, television and radio stations can attend as our guest, but again must be approved in advance.

If you do not meet the above criteria and still try to register, then you will receive an automatic reply/confirmation from Eventbrite. However you will shortly receive another email from Angelbeat, rejecting and cancelling your registration.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event
