Exhibitor Conduct

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 New York Marriott Marquis 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.
