BOOTHS The cost of each booth includes space, a 6-foot exhibit table, two chairs, and copies of the Attendee Directory based on level of sponsorship. This cost does not include custom brokerage, placement, or special storage of display-related equipment, decorations, or any type of labor, special lighting, or additional electrical power.
SECURITY During off hours, the exhibit area will be secured. However, the safekeeping of the Sponsor’s property shall remain the sole responsibility of the Sponsor. Synova Associates LLC, its agents, and the Hotel assume no responsibility for damage or loss of boxes, crates, equipment, or any other sponsor materials.

SPONSOR BADGES Synova Associates-issued sponsor name badges grant admission to all non-ticketed events, including concurrent sessions.

Synova Associates-issued sponsor badges will be furnished to Sponsors and their representatives according to level of sponsorship.

No more than one additional representative per sponsor will be accepted.
