STC's Non-Commercial Policy:
STC Program Committee is seeking valuable educational sessions and are always critical of presenters or sessions that are self-promotional. STC policy requires that presenters do not use a conference session for commercial sales pitches, self-promotion or unwarranted criticism of a competitor. Presentations should only advance the educational process; sales pitches do not and are therefore not acceptable. Speakers are not permitted to distribute company promotional literature, brochures or sales materials in any form to attendees during their session.
