Exhibitor 8 Foot Table Display Rules and Requirements

Specific Rules for 8 Foot Exhibitor Table Top Displays

No part of any exhibitor display may exceed a maximum overall height of 90 inches above the table top.  No exhibitor display or materials may be placed on the floor, either in front of, on the side of or behind the table.  Exhibitor display power cords or wiring must hang behind the display.  All exhibitor electrical connections and wiring must conform to the hotel’s local fire code.  Exhibitors may NOT place materials under the table. All packaging must be stored with the hotel.  Exhibitors may use a custom table skirt as long as it is in good condition and entirely covers the table top and drapes to the floor in front and on the sides.  Electricity is provided. Any telephone, wired IP connections or special AV must be ordered in advance.  Please contact info@midwestacquirers.com for specifics. These services incur additional charges.  WiFi will be available, courtesy of a Sponsor.

General Rules for Exhibitors and Their Displays

Exhibitors displays must be in good taste and must be safe. Exhibitors and their displays may not create either audio or noise that is excessively loud nor have lights, pictures or video that are objectionable.  The MWAA Officers will be final arbiters of whether a display violates the MWAA exhibitor display rules.  If an exhibitor or exhibitor display is found to be in violation of the rules, the exhibitor will be notified and must immediately correct the violation.  Failure to do so will result in the exhibitor being banned from further participation in the MWAA conference.  Registration as an exhibitor for the MWAA conference will be understood to be a exhibitor’s acceptance of these rules.

Premium Sponsor Display Rules and Requirements

Specific Rules for Exhibitor Displays as a Premium Sponsor
