Visiting

The AMS attendee badge includes admission to the Exhibit Hall. Nonregistered guests of exhibitors should bring their invitations to the Exhibitor Check-In Desk to receive their guest pass. Guests are only allowed on the exhibit floor during show hours and must wear a badge at all times.

Suitcasing

Exhibitors at the AMS 102nd 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. To support registered exhibitors, the AMS has developed a Suitcasing policy, where suitcasing refers to those companies or persons who attend the Annual Meeting and “work the aisles” from their suitcase (briefcase) and solicit business in the aisles, conference areas, or hotels.

Only contracted exhibitors are permitted to promote their products, services, or company at the Annual 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 who violate this policy will be asked to leave the show and forfeit their badge. Additional penalties may apply. Any “suitcasers” observed by either attendees and/or exhibitors should be reported to the show management immediately.
