New this year, exhibitors may purchase electronic lead retrieval for $199. Using the conference app, exhibitors will be able to scan attendee badges to capture leads seamlessly. You can track your ROI in real-time with key metrics displayed across a dashboard and add notes for follow-up.
Exhibitors will be able to easily give away their own prizes with the new lead retrieval option, so new in 2022, attendees will be provided with an exhibit hall passport. Exhibitors will initial the passport, confirming that they visited their booth. After the passport is completed (75%), it may be turned in at registration to be entered in the drawing.
By submitting the Exhibit Registration, the exhibitor is contracting with GHSA and agrees to follow all the rules explained herein. Please note that benefits of exhibiting at the GHSA Annual Meeting do not include use of GHSA’s logo without express written consent.

Liability & Indemnification

We appreciate all our exhibitors and attendees and strive to make our Annual Meeting a welcoming space for all who join us. To that end, we ask exhibitors to abide by the following conduct guidelines:
- Each representative of an exhibiting company is expected to conduct himself/herself in a professional manner.
- An exhibitor representative should be present in the booth during all posted show times.
- All product demonstrations must be conducted within the exhibitor's contracted booth space.
- Distribution of marketing materials, branded giveaways, and other promotional items is prohibited outside the exhibitor's contracted booth space.
- Demonstrations, discussions, and business conducted in the booth space should not disrupt or disturb other exhibitors.
- Exhibitors may not deface any part of the exhibit facility or hotel property. Nothing may be affixed to the exhibit facility or hotel property without the express permission of the official exhibit contractor and the hotel.
Failure to adhere to these guidelines will result in a verbal warning to in-booth personnel and email notification to the official booth contact. GHSA reserves the right to evict any exhibitor who, because of noise, conduct, method of operation or other distraction, detracts from the educational nature of the exhibit. Should an eviction occur, the exhibitor forfeits all monies paid and will not be entitled to a refund.
Any costs arising out of negligence will be the sole responsibility of the exhibitor. Exhibitors acknowledge that GHSA and the Louisville Marriott Downtown do not maintain insurance covering exhibitor property and that it is the sole responsibility of the exhibitor to obtain business interruption and property damage insurance covering losses by the exhibitor.
Exhibitors acknowledge their responsibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act to make their booths accessible to persons with disabilities. The exhibitor agrees to indemnify and hold harmless GHSA, the hotel and exhibit company against costs, liability or damages arising out of or caused by exhibitor’s failure to comply with the Act.
