SOT Annual Meeting registrants (excluding registered guests) are allowed to bring children under full parental/guardian control into Scientific Sessions and the ToxExpo Exhibit Hall.

  • Parents/guardians will be liable for any damage to exhibits.
  • In consideration of other participants, disruptive children should be removed from the hall or session.

Also, SOT is exploring childcare options for the SOT Annual Meeting. Visit the “On-Site Services” web page for more information.
