Policy for Assignment of Space

It is not always possible to assign one of your preferred choices; however, we’ll try to make assignment in your requested area. The primary consideration in the assignment of space to exhibitors shall be in the best interest of SAWC. The SAWC may at its discretion accept or reject any application for space and reserves the right to relocate or reassign exhibit booths at any time.

Many booth spaces have already been assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applications received after the on-site booth assignment process is completed shall be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Space assignments are contingent upon a timely receipt of application; the size of exhibit requested; physical layout and characteristics of the exhibit hall; compatibility of exhibitors; and other factors as determined by SAWC, such as overall support of the meeting.

Installation/Dismantling

The official exhibit contractor, Freeman, will provide an exhibitor service kit containing literature and rates for all labor, services, electrical connections, furniture, and miscellaneous equipment to exhibitors after assignment of space has been confirmed. Please check your exhibitor kit for order deadline dates. Freeman also will provide instructions within the kit so forms may be processed online.
