No exhibit shall extend beyond the official floor plan dimensions or into an aisle to prevent the exhibit space from being accessible to persons with disabilities. Except with special permission, exhibit materials placed along the side rails in the front 6 feet of the booth may not exceed 4 feet in height. Exhibit materials on tabletop displays may not extend beyond the tabletop dimensions of 8 feet in length or 48 inches in width. No exhibitor or vendor can change or move the arrangement of his or her tabletop or booth (this includes the drapes that will be used in the booth areas).

Audio and video devices operated in an objectionable manner in the opinion of the conference organizers may be prohibited. Booth or tabletop noises must not interfere with the conversation of other exhibitors, vendors or attendees.

Cancellation or Postponement of the Conference:

In the event of fire, strikes, riots, civil commotion, acts of God, war, terrorism, epidemics and other unavoidable circumstances rendering it impossible or impractical for any reason for the organizers to host this event, the vendors or exhibitors, shall be released from their contract. In such an event, all payments made by the exhibitors or vendors for exhibit space shall be returned minus any expenses incurred by the organizer on behalf of the exhibitor.
