Exhibitors at the AMS 96th Annual Meeting have invested and committed their support to this industry. They have planned for several months or more to bring the Attendees the experience they seek and deserve. Suit-casing refers to those companies or persons who attend the Meeting and “work the aisles” from their suitcase (briefcase) and solicit business in the aisles, conference areas or hotels.
Suit-casing Policy: Only contracted Exhibitors are permitted to promote their products, services or company at the Meeting. All company promotion and product sampling must occur within the contracted booth space. This includes, but is not limited to handing out flyers, approaching Exhibitor booths to sell products, and leaving and/or distributing product information in public spaces and show floor aisles. Exhibitors found doing so will be sent back to their booth space and materials left will be confiscated and disposed of properly. Attendees will be asked to leave the show and forfeit their badge. Additional penalties may apply. Any “suit-casers” observed by either attendees and/or exhibitors should be reported to the Show Management immediately.
