**Early Teardown - AVOID FINES
Early booth breakdown is strictly prohibited. Due to an increase in complaints from attendees and exhibitors, American Camp Association is committed to eliminating these practices from the show floor on the final day of the show.
An exhibitor is in violation of early breakdown if they start to break down their booth, remove product from their shelves, box up product and/or are unable to conduct business in their booth prior to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 22, 2018. Show Management will have teams walking the show floor the last day to enforce compliance of this policy. If your booth is breaking down EARLY, we will take photographs and your company will receive a notification of the violation within 30 days post show. The fine is $500. This policy will be strictly enforced at all ACA, Inc. shows. Note that the violation fines will be as follows: $500/first time violations. $1,000 fine for any next show violation, and third time violations will forfeit their booth placement at subsequent shows in addition to the fine(s). Companies in violation of this policy are jeopardizing their booth location for future shows and the fine must be paid prior to being able to reserve space in subsequent shows. Please keep this in mind when making staffing decisions and travel arrangements for the final day of the show. If your booth is unmanned or completely disassembled, we will take a photograph of your booth and send you a fine in the mail.
This early teardown policy supersedes any conflicting language in the terms and conditions to the exhibit space contract including but not limited to the terms and conditions stated therein in item number 5, and is a valid and enforceable amendment to the exhibit space contract. By exhibiting at the Event, you hereby agree to this early teardown policy.
All exhibitors are welcome to attend educational sessions, (meals not included).
