Minors & Childcare Services


Children are not permitted entry into session rooms. Also, children under the age of 18 are not permitted on the Exhibit Hall floor during setup or dismantling hours. During scheduled show hours, exceptions are made when parents or guardians complete and sign a Minor Release Form. This form is available at the Registration Assistance Counter in the North Lobby of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.


Childcare Services

Tots on the Spot will provide childcare during the meeting.  Tots on the Spot is a fully insured small business.  They carefully select the children’s activities, taking into consideration their ages, genders and abilities, with safety and fun in mind.  The children’s room is fully childproofed prior to the start of the event.  The caregiver–to-child ratio is equal to the national standards for childcare.  They follow proven security procedures during all events.  Tots on the Spot caregivers are all mature adults that have worked with children for many years in the fields of teaching, mentoring, caregiving, or parenting.  They are fingerprinted and background checked, reference checked and are current on their CPR and First Aid Certifications.  All caregivers follow appropriate health and safety guidelines.
