Every exhibit space should allow for the visibility of other booths. All island booth designs must be approved by NASPGHAN
prior to set-up. All exhibits must conform to the standards set by the Healthcare Convention and Exhibitors Association, which are as follows:
No obstructions in the front half of an in-line booth above a height of 40 inches are permitted. The booth height of 8 feet, inclusive of company name and logo, may be maintained up to 50% of the distance from the back wall toward the front of the space.
Standard In-line Booth
Electrical or other mechanical apparatus must be muffled so noise does not interfere with other exhibitors.
No part of any equipment or signs relating thereto shall be posted, nailed or otherwise attached to columns, walls, floors, or other parts of the building or its furniture, in any way to deface same; damage arising by failure to observe these rules shall be payable by the exhibitor.
A standard in-line booth is 10 feet wide, 10 feet deep and 8 feet high.
A corner booth is 10 feet wide, 10 feet deep and 8 feet high, and is at the end of a row of in-line booths with access to two through aisles.
An island booth is 20 feet wide and 20 feet deep, with an 8 foot high restriction. The island booth cannot cause a visual disadvantage to adjacent exhibits that is greater than would be caused by an in-line booth in the immediately adjacent space. Island booth layout must be submitted to NASPGHAN by August 7, 2018 for approval.
BOOTH FEES, ASSIGNMENT OF SPACE, CANCELLATIONS
ASSIGNMENT OF SPACE
Priority for space assignment will be based on the date on which applications are received. Applications for exhibit space must be made on the Official Application form. Tentative reservations may be made by phone and will be held for ten working days. Within this time period, the application and required booth space fees must be forwarded to NASPGHAN or tentative space will be released. No space will be assigned until both an application and payment have been received.
Exhibitors wishing to avoid assignment of space adjacent to that of a particular competitor should indicate this on their application. Careful consideration will be given to all such requests, but relocation cannot be guaranteed.
In the event of conflicts regarding space requests or conditions beyond the control of the exhibit management, NASPGHAN reserves the right to revise, relocate, or reassign exhibit booths at any time for the overall benefit of the meeting. A revised floor plan will be provided upon request.
