If an attendee who is not officially representing any company showcasing in the Exchange exposition [a company registered as a trade-show exhibitor] is observed to be soliciting business from an attendee who is also not registered as a trade-show exhibitor, in the exposition hall or any other public space or facility under GEAPS’ Exchange show management, or in violation of any provision of this policy, that person will be asked to leave the facility or space immediately. Penalties may also be applied. Observed violations should be reported to GEAPS’ Exposition Services Manager.

GEAPS recognizes that “suitcasing” may also take the form of commercial activity conducted from a hotel guest room; a restaurant, club, or other public place of assembly over which GEAPS has no management control. This policy applies to only GEAPS’ events at venues including sites, facilities or portions of facilities under GEAPS show management to include any event, facility or space reserved by or for GEAPS.
