The code is QP2U27H1 and is supposed to apply to flights 7 days pre and post conference. The code gives a 10% reduction in fares but may not apply to the lowest (Tango) fares in North America. If your flight involves a star alliance partner (Lufthansa for example) and is booked on Air Canada an Air Canada ticket then the discount should apply on the whole flight.
