  • Unfinished portions of pop-up displays must be covered. Pop-up framework, raw wood or cardboard wings must be painted or appropriately covered if visible from another booth.
  • ICE Show Management reserves the right to restrict or remove exhibits and/or exhibitors, which in its sole judgment, because of noise, inappropriately attired personnel, or any other reason, are or become objectionable or, which in its sole judgment, may detract from the character of the Conference. Neither AAPG or its employees, agents, officers, directors, or representative thereof, shall have any liability, whether to any exhibitor or otherwise, as a result of such restriction or removal.
  • Photographing and video recording of other exhibitors’ displays is strictly prohibited.
  • All exhibitors must obtain Show Management’s written approval to have any photographers or video recording arranged at their booth.
  • Sound equipment may be used in your booth so long as the noise level does not disrupt the activities of neighboring exhibitors. Speakers and other sound devices should be positioned so as to direct sound into the booth rather than into the aisle. Sound and noise should not exceed 85 decibels. You should be aware that music played in your booth, whether live or recorded, may be subject to laws governing the use of copyrighted compositions. ASCAP, BMI and SESAC are three authorized licensing organizations that collect copyright fees on behalf of composers and publishers of music.

The main lobbies, escalators and passenger elevators are not to be used for this purpose. Exhibitors should verify show security arrangements and times for move-in and move-out to avoid problems with unattended equipment and materials.
  • No animals or pets are permitted in the facility except as required for use as a guide/assistance dog.

  2. Exhibitor Behavior (Item 19, Page 9 – CITCC 2018 Exhibitor Manual)

    All efforts to advertise, demonstrate and operate an exhibition must be conducted so as to not trespass on the rights of other exhibitors.

The CITCC reserves the right to limit and/or restrict operations which, for any reason, might be considered objectionable, without any liability for refund and/or damage fees. Work can be stopped or persons put offsite for failing to comply with Health and Safety Legislation.
