2022 EXHIBITOR TERMS & CONDITIONS
SHOW FLOOR LAYOUT
Booth assignments are subject to change at the discretion of the EXPO Committee. Booth assignments will NOT be provided until FULL payment has been received. Complete show floor layout will be determined in the month prior to the show.
Exhibit staff should be full-time employees of the exhibitor or persons employed for the duration of the show and listed in the registration. If changes need to be made to attendees, exhibitor will notify RMRPPA within 24 hours of the show. Badges are printed two weeks before the show so a substitute may not have a badge.
Registration received without payment will not be processed for booth assignment until payment is received. There will be no refunds. If the show is sold out, and if the exhibitor gives sufficient advance notice of inability to attend, and RMRPPA is able to resell the booth space, then RMRPPA will apply a credit of the fee already paid toward the next year's shows.
This year's layout is a table top vs. the pipe and drape events of the past. There are limited premium booths that will be placed again the outer walls, with the remaining tables to be placed back to back in the center of the area.
DEVICES/DISTRIBUTION OF ADVERTISING MATERIALS
No signs or advertising devices may be displayed outside of your exhibit space. Nothing may be posted, tacked or otherwise attached to columns, walls, floors or other parts of the building or furniture. All necessary and proper measures must be taken for the protection of the building, equipment or furniture at the expense of exhibitor.
Exhibitors may not distribute or display products, circulars, catalogs or publications outside the confines of their exhibit space without advanced approval of show management at its discretion.
No exhibitor, distributor or others attending the show may conduct himself or herself in a manner offensive to decency or good taste. Attendees may not do anything detrimental to the success of the show or interfere with the business goals of any of the attendees. This includes but is not limited to disturbances or demonstrations of any kind, picketing against other registrants, and distributors and other attendees dropping off literature to supplier booths.
Exhibitor Etiquette Helps Ensure Success:
As important as your pre-show promotion is, as consequential as your pre-show planning, as critical as your booth design and integrated marketing approach, these vital elements can be forgotten and useless if your booth personnel make some all too common mistakes. Those mistakes can cost your company business, hurt its reputation, and result in the money and time you spent on your exhibit being wasted.
RMRPPA requires that EXPO booth personnel adhere to the following guidelines during show hours:
1. Stay out of other vendor booths / competitor booths
2. Do not solicit in the aisles (suitcasing)
3. Do not disrupt other vendors / exhibitors
4. Tables are meant for display, not for relaxation
5. Conducting business via cell phone or laptop should be avoided while staffing your booth
