Welcome to the Air & Space Exhibitor Service Center. This will be the one stop for
any and all exhibitor information relating to the Air & Space Technology Exposition.
Exhibitor Service Kit
- Current Floor Plan
- AFA Display Rules -- In order to maintain a professional
appearance and ensure equal visibility for all exhibitors, AFA follows the IAEE
Guidelines for Display Rules & Regulations. Please refer to these guidelines while
designing your booth space. If you have a need to deviate from the rules as written,
you must contact the AFA Exhibit Manager for authorization. Deviating from the rules
without permission could result in the required correction of any violation at your
risk and expense at any time during the event.
Suitcasing Policy - Suitcasing is a parasitic business practice in
which unethical companies will gain access to an event by obtaining some type of
event credential (attendee badge, expo-only badge etc.) and then solicit business
in the aisles or other public spaces used for the conference. This practice skirts
the support of the organizer and the industry. This does not pertain solely to soliciting
the attendees of an event. As we all know, some of your biggest customers/vendors
can be other exhibiting companies. So, when a salesperson for “Joe’s Manufacturing”
(who is not exhibiting) shows up in your booth in an attempt to earn your business
as a sub on your next big contract, they are suitcasing.
AFA has a zero tolerance policy
- Publication Distribution
Policy -- The Air Force Association prohibits the unauthorized distribution
of any materials (printed or electronic) at its conferences, expositions and symposia.
Exhibiting companies may display and distribute their materials from their booths
only. Representatives of non-exhibiting companies who violate this prohibition will
be considered to be suitcasing and will be required to purchase booth space (if
available) or surrender their credentials and vacate the conference area, in keeping
with AFA’s suitcasing policy. Exhibitors who violate this prohibition may be expelled
from the exhibit floor without refund.
