Booth Guidelines and Exhibitor Rules of Conduct The booth guidelines and exhibitor rules of conduct are presented to create fairness for all exhibitors. In the case of a major violation of any of the guidelines the Pacific Dental Conference reserves the right to close any exhibit. For less serious violations, the Pacific Dental Conference will reduce the priority given to any exhibitor’s 2020 booth request. As each exhibitor is entitled to a reasonable sight line from an aisle regardless of the size of the exhibit, no background may be placed to obstruct, block, or interfere with the visibility of an adjacent booth. All exhibitor activities must be restricted to the booth space rented. Distribution of materials and samples outside of the booth is prohibited. Distribution of samples is permitted provided it does not interfere with an adjoining exhibitor. Aisles must not be obstructed at any time. If a display attracts a large number of attendees, including line ups, the exhibitor must still provide clear aisle space, and contain line ups within the booth space. The exhibitor must keep the exhibit open and staffed during exhibit hours and shall not close until after 5:30pm March 8th, 2019. Exhibitors shall be responsible for all damage to structures and furnishings which may be caused by their representatives. Any action which the Pacific Dental Conference considers to be an annoyance to other exhibitors will not be permitted. The use of live or recorded audio and video displays is permitted but must not be heard by adjoining booths. Distribution of food and beverages not manufactured or related to the activities of the exhibitor are to be purchased through the Vancouver Convention Centre. The use of drones, hoverboards or any other self-balancing scooters is not permitted in the Exhibit Hall or any meeting space in the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Acceptability of Exhibitors The Pacific Dental Conference reserves the right to review all applications for booth space to determine their suitability. Badge Policy Lost or stolen badges must be reported to the registration desk. Only employees/contractors of the exhibiting company may have an exhibitor’s badge. The misuse of exhibitors’ badges could result in expulsion of the violator from the Exhibit Hall and convention without obligation by the Pacific Dental Conference. Child Policy Only children twelve years and over are allowed in the Exhibit Hall and must have a paid ‘Exhibits Only’ badge. Disruptive behaviour will result in the revocation of attendance privileges. Infants are permitted in the Exhibit Hall in a ‘snugglie’ only and strollers are strictly prohibited. Smoking The Vancouver Convention Centre is a non-smoking venue. Smoking is prohibited at all times throughout the facility including Move In and Move Out hours. Subletting No exhibitor shall, without the written permission of the Pacific Dental Conference, assign, sublet, or apportion the whole or any part of the space allotted. Only the registered exhibiting company will be listed in the Final Program and PDC App. Compliance With Regulations The Pacific Dental Conference reserves the right to take such action and to make such changes as are considered necessary to the efficient and proper conduct of the exhibition. The Pacific Dental Conference reserves the right to restrict exhibits, which, because of noise or any other reason, become objectionable. Non-compliance with regulations, as determined by the Pacific Dental Conference, can result in the removal of the offending exhibitor or the closing of his exhibit, without indemnity, and the Pacific Dental Conference is released from any kind and all claims for damage which might result in consequence thereof. Fire Department Regulations The Vancouver Fire Department and Vancouver Convention Centre regulations are vigorously enforced. Fire hose cabinets must be left accessible and in full view at all times. All aisles must be kept clear and all exits to fire stairs unobstructed. All drapes, table coverings, display materials, and papers used for decorating purposes must be flame-proof and subject to inspection by the Vancouver Fire Department and the Vancouver Convention Centre. No flammable fluids or substances may be used or shown in booths. Dust covers, if required, must be supplied by the exhibitor and must be flame-proof.

The Pacific Dental Conference, and the Vancouver Convention Centre are not responsible in any way for goods while on exhibit or in storage. Exhibitors are strongly advised to maintain normal precautionary measures to protect their display material and equipment and to cover their property and person with suitable insurance. It is suggested that exhibitors carry a minimum of $2 million general liability insurance and all-risk legal liability insurance. General All matters not covered in these regulations are subject to the decision and control of the Pacific Dental Conference, notwithstanding anything in the application for space or contained in these regulations. The Pacific Dental Conference expressly reserves the right to change the dates of the Conference; to transfer the Conference to another building if, for any reason, the Vancouver Convention Centre should not be available; to change the floor plan or alter the location and/or alter the size of the exhibitor’s space. Limitation of Liability In case the premises are destroyed, or in case any circumstances whatsoever, which shall make it impossible for the Pacific Dental Conference to permit any exhibitor or exhibitors to occupy the premises, the exhibitor shall pay for space only for the period the space was or could have been occupied by such exhibit or exhibitors. The Pacific Dental Conference is released from liability of any kind and all claims for damage which might arise in consequence thereof. In the event that for any reason the exhibition is not held as proposed, the Pacific Dental Conference, on refunding all monies received from an exhibitor or exhibitors, shall be released from all claims for damage.

Application for approval of any variation from standard booth design must be submitted in writing to the Pacific Dental Conference by January 18th, 2019. Exhibitors will be notified as to the acceptability of the variance. The Pacific Dental Conference reserves the right to approve or make changes to any exhibit, which may be deemed detrimental to the Pacific Dental Conference. Governing Law Each and all of the provisions of these Conditions and Rules shall be deemed an integral part of the contract for exhibit space, with the same force and effect as if set forth in said contract.
