This includes, but is not limited to verbal communication, business cards, flyers, product giveaways, handouts, digital items and printed materials. Failure to comply will result in immediate removal and application of fees. Violators will be banned from the event.
Management, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to refuse entry to or remove anyone from the Expo who may be disruptive, threatening or who may violate procedures and/or policies.
