HIMSS AsiaPac17 Conference & Exhibition
 

GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS


The HIMSS AsiaPac17 is committed to the success of all exhibiting companies. Our intent is to have a professional and balanced marketplace during exhibition. Therefore, all exhibitors are expected to adhere to all rules and regulations stated in this service manual and on the back of your exhibit space contract. Objectionable activity will be reviewed by HIMSS Asia Pacific management and may be ceased or changed at any time during the course of the exhibition.

Building Regulations
No nailing or screwing shall be driven or holes drilled into the floors, walls, doors, pillars or other parts of the structure in the exhibition halls or any part of the building.

Demonstrations & Marketing Activities
Exhibitor demonstrations and all marketing/promotional activities must be conducted within the confines of your booth space. Demonstrations should not obstruct the aisles nor prevent access to nearby booths. Any activity that results in the obstruction of aisles, or prevents ready access to nearby exhibitors’ booths, or produces sound levels that exceed 75 decibels, will result in a loss of exhibitor points after the first warning. If you intend to conduct any activity that will attract large numbers of attendees, you must purchase enough booth space and orient your booth structures so that the crowd can be accommodated within your booth space. Distribution of pamphlets, brochures, etc. must take place within your booth space only. Orders may be taken during the normal activity on the exhibit floor but retail sales are not permitted.

Direct Selling
Exhibitors are required to remain in their own booth space during exhibit hours. Solicitation outside your booth in any way is strictly prohibited. Orders may be taken during the normal activity on the exhibit floor in your purchased booth space, but retail sales are not permitted.

Subletting
Exhibitors may not assign, sublet, or share their exhibit space with another business or firm unless approval has been obtained in writing from HIMSS. Exhibitors must show goods or services manufactured or dealt in by them in the regular course of business. Should an article of a non-exhibiting firm be required for operation or demonstration in an exhibitor’s display, identification of such article shall be limited to the usual and regular nameplates, imprint, or trademark under which same is sold in the general course of business.

Sound/Noise
The use of megaphones, loudspeakers, or public address systems by exhibitors is prohibited. The decibel level of sound emitting from your booth must not exceed 75 at the edge of the stand. Speakers must face into the exhibit booth itself and not into the aisles or into neighboring exhibits. Live music is prohibited in the exhibit hall. The HIMSS AsiaPac17 reserves the right to determine at what point sound constitutes interference with other exhibitors and it must be discontinued.

Move-out/Dismantling
No move-out or dismantling is permitted before 17:45 on Wednesday, 13 September.

Unpaid Booth Balances
Final booth payment is due no later than 31 July. On 31 July unpaid booth spaces will be released. Any company with an unpaid balance will have their freight refused by HIMSS Asia Pacific until the balance is paid in full. If your badges are denied due to your failure to pay the balance on your booth, HIMSS cannot be held responsible.

Children
No persons under the age of 18 are allowed on show floor at any time.

Smoking
Smoking is not permitted by HIMSS Asia Pacific in the Marina Bay Sands Ballroom or Meeting Rooms during set-up, show days or tear down.
