STORAGE NOTICE: Fire regulations prohibit storing products, literature, empty packing containers, or packing materials behind back drapes or under draped tables. Exhibitors may store a limited supply of literature or product appropriately within the booth area, as long as these items do not impede access to utility services, create a safety problem, or look unsightly.

MOVE-IN NOTICE: Any booth not occupied by 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 19 will be considered abandoned (unless show management has been otherwise notified) and will be forfeited by the exhibitor, and such space may be carpeted into a lounge, resold to a company on the waitlist (if applicable), or otherwise assigned by AIHA, without any refund of any payment to the exhibitor by AIHA. If there is a display in the booth and Shepard must set it up or “force the carpet,” the exhibitor will be responsible for the cost incurred by show management.

Exhibitors Beware

Be cautious if dealing with any housing companies or services that imply or claim an affiliation with AIHA Connect other than Maritz, the official AIHA Connect housing company. Unauthorized travel companies are often illegitimate, and most do not deliver as promised. Reservations made through an agency other than Maritz will be at your own risk.

Additionally, AIHA Connect does not sell or provide attendee lists to any sales companies. Offers to provide the contact information for previous conferences are fraudulent. For AIHA's full privacy policy, visit Privacy Policy.

We recommend reviewing the list of Official AIHA Connect Publications and Contractors before responding to any solicitations you may receive.
