Failure to Occupy SpaceSpace not occupied by the close of the installation period will be forfeited, and space may be resold, reassigned or used by CAI. No refunds will be made for failure to occupy space.Private Party PolicyAll hospitality suites and hosted events must be approved by CAI. Hospitality suites/hosted events are not permitted during official conference activities. Non-exhibiting companies/groups/individuals are not permitted to host OR attend events at the official hotel during the conference. Contact Carly Reid at firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests.
CAI Suitcasing PolicyCAI has a no-tolerance policy regarding “suitcasing," which describes the practice by nonexhibiting companies or individuals of soliciting sales or sales leads in conference hotel, on the tradeshow floor, in the aisles or lobbies and/or representing their services or soliciting conference participants for conflicting social activities (including Chapter Party) and wearing company logo wear. This also applies to Virtual Attendees. The use of company logos on virtual backgrounds, wearing logo clothing virtually, and solicitation to sell your product virtually in the conference platform is considered suitcasing.
Nonexhibiting suppliers participating in the conference as attendees or speakers are prohibited from soliciting business on the tradeshow floor, in or after sessions, in the conference hotel, or in the conference virtual platform.It is considered bad form to conduct business outside of your booth. Talking to clients or prospects in or in front of someone else's booth is also a violation of CAI policy and will not be tolerated. All parts of the exhibit must remain in exhibitor's assigned space. No exhibit will be allowed to infringe upon aisle space.Violators of these policies will be ejected from the show and charged the single-booth rate ($2,300), which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future CAI conference or other event. In addition, CAI will have the hotel cancel the illegal function at violator's expense.
