Can children attend the conference?

DevLearn is exclusively designed for adult learning and development professionals, making it unsuitable for children due to the nature of its content and the presence of alcohol during social events. Childcare services are not provided, and without proper supervision and activities, children may not have a positive experience. However, the event offers a nursing room for mothers who require it. The organizers encourage attendees to reach out for accommodations or any additional questions to ensure a comfortable and inclusive experience for all participants.
