2001 Fall Meeting Exhibits Information

6. Booth Design and Funishings

A standard booth is 10' x 10' and includes an 8' high draped backwall, 3' high side rails, and a 7" x 44" placard with the exhibitor's name and booth number. The aisles will be carpeted. It is mandatory that all booths be carpeted at the exhibitor's expense. The exhibitor's booth must be arranged so as not to obstruct the general view or hide other exhibits. Regular and specially built backwalls, including signs, may not exceed 8' in height. Panels more than 4' high must not project forward from the backwall more than 4'. All display fixtures over 4' in height and placed within 10 lineal feet of an adjoining exhibit, must be confined 5' back from the aisle. Audio-visual devices used in the exhibitor's booth must be approved by AGU. In the course of the exhibition, no audio-visual device or sound system shall be operated in a manner that disturbs or interferes with other exhibitors; AGU will be the sole arbiter of whether or not a given device is disturbing to other exhibitors. Attention-attracting, noise-making devices, loud-speaker systems, and flashing lights must be approved by AGU. Unfinished tables and exposed unfinished sides of exhibit backgrounds must be draped to present an attractive appearance. All boxes and extraneous materials must be stored from sight during show hours. All laws and regulations of local, state, and federal governments pertaining to fire, public safety, and consumer safety shall be observed by each exhibitor.

7. Assignment of Booth Space

To ensure that you get your location preference, send in your contract with a 50% deposit as soon as possible. The balance must be paid by November 1, 2001. Booths will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, determined by the date of receipt of the contract with deposit. We will also look at exhibitors' history with AGU where there are discrepancies. Please Note: Early takedown in 2001 may eliminate your company's participation in the 2002 Fall Meeting.

It is mandatory that all booths be carpeted at the exhibitor's expense.

9. Payment, Cancellation, and Rejection Policy


Payment: A 50% deposit of the total amount due must accompany the Application and Contract. Full payment must accompany the Application and Contract if submitted after November 1, 2001. (Government agencies may submit a purchase order for the full amount but AGU must receive payment in full by November 1, 2001.) Descriptions for exhibitors will not be published unless full payment has been received by the appropriate deadline.

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be made in writing and refund will be based on the following schedule:

September 7 - November 1, 2001 (50%) of full payment due.

Rejection Policy

AGU reserves the right to refuse any applicant for exhibit space as well as the right to restrict or evict any exhibitor that, in the opinion of AGU, detracts from the general character of the meeting. This policy applies to displays, printed matter, promotional materials, noise, personal conduct, and method of operation. In the event of such restrictions or eviction, AGU will not be liable for any exhibit expenses.

10. Security, Liability, and Insurance

Security guards will be furnished in the exhibit hall on a 24-hour basis, but the furnishing of such guards shall not be deemed to increase the liability of the sponsors. AGU shall not be held responsible for the loss of any material by any cause and usage. The exhibitor will exercise normal precautions to discourage loss due to theft or any other cause. AGU will exercise reasonable care for the protection of the exhibitor's materials and displays. However, the exhibitor expressly releases the foregoing named from any and all claims for such loss, damage, or injury in the absence of negligence. Exhibitors desiring to carry insurance will do so at their own expense. In the event the meeting/exhibition is canceled, the liability of AGU shall be limited to the money paid by the exhibitor for exhibit booth rental, less a proportionate share of all expenses incurred by AGU for the exhibition.
