Whenever competitors within an industry gather together, appropriate care must be exercised to ensure that violations of anti-trust laws do not occur. All Retreat participants should avoid any collusive practices or discussions. Collusion is an agreement to fraud and most usually is evidenced in the following anti-trust violations: product boycott, restrictive market allocation, refusal to deal with a third party, and price restraining activities. There need not be written or verbal agreements to fraud. Conversation regarding any of these sensitive areas may be construed as implicit violations. You should avoid discussion of pricing, such as the prices you pay and prices you charge, including labor costs; market share and allocation; quality ratings of products or suppliers, particularly those that may cause a competitor to lock out or to cease purchasing from a specific supplier; any other areas that might have anti-competitive repercussions. For your own protection and the protection of your company, CAI recommends that should one of these subjects be brought up in any discussion, it would be in your best interest to voice your objection to it and disassociate yourself from the discussion should it continue.

Full refunds will be issued if written cancellation is received by August 25, 2017. Cancellations received between August 26-September 7, 2017, are subject to a 50% administrative fee. Registration fees are not refundable after September 7, 2017. Email cancellations to Holly Carson at

CAI has a no tolerance policy regarding "suitcasing," which is the practice of non-sponsoring companies or individuals soliciting sales or sales leads in the lobbies, and/or representing their services or soliciting retreat participants for conflicting social activities. Non-sponsoring suppliers participating in the retreat as speakers are prohibited from soliciting business in the hotel. Violators of this policy will be charged the Tabletop Sponsorship rate ($5,500), which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor or sponsor at any future CAI event. It is considered "bad-form" to conduct business outside of your own tabletop area. Talking to clients or prospects in-front of someone else's display is also a violation of CAI policy will not be tolerated. 

PRIVATE PARTY POLICY: All hospitality suites and hosted events must be reserved, approved, and paid for through CAI. Hospitality suites/hosted events are not permitted during official Retreat activities. Non-sponsoring suppliers are not permitted to host events at the official hotel during the Retreat.

Violators of these policies will be ejected from the Retreat if applicable, and charged $5,500, which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future CAI events.
