  • 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 regarding suitcasing.

  • 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.
