At San Bernardino County Economic Development Agency , we want to connect people and provide educational experiences through the meetings and events with our members.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

A. Information You Provide to Us

Registration Information. When you register for an event, you give us your name, email address, cell phone number and other information depending on the event.

Filling out some profile questions is optional, but often in your best interest, as it will enable you to avoid registration lines to receive tickets and badges. It will also allow you to receive continuing education credits if offered and share your information with trade show exhibitors as you allow them to scan your badge.
