Rules and Regulations

Very Important Note: Please carefully review the below (especially if you have participated at this conference before with a corporate display) as there are very specific restrictions at this year’s venue.

You may bring:

  • A laptop or tablet which may be set on top of your 6’ table.
  • A branded table cloth.
  • Marketing collateral for setting out on your table, however you are limited to a one day's supply. Storage is NOT allowed under your table.

Do not bring:

  • Pop-up (a.k.a. retractable or pull-up banners), trifold, briefcase, and modular displays, as well as traditional booths are prohibited.
  • A monitor/t.v./display to set on your 6' table as it will not be permitted. If you want to have one of these items as part of your corporate display, it will need to be ordered from the hotel and will be pole mounted and set behind your table. Please let us know if you would like to place an order and I can put you in contact with the hotel directly.

As a courtesy to other participants and attendees and in an effort to create a positive experience for everyone, on-site representatives should adhere to the following rules/regulations.

  • The corporate display is a table display, not an exhibit booth.
  • Table placement in the foyers will consist of one 6'x30" draped table, two chairs, and one wastebasket.
  • Storage is NOT allowed under tables and materials are to be limited to a one day's supply. Material distribution is limited to your corporate display area.
  • The space for your corporate display is not defined with pipe and drape; please respect your neighbor's space by staying within the confines of your 6ft table.
  • Staff your table during the scheduled refreshment breaks when attendees will be viewing corporate displays. Displays should be staffed by a maximum of two people. Too many people are intimidating to attendees and don't fit well within the confines of the space.
