Suitcasing by any of the above, i.e. gaining access to the event to solicit business in the aisles or other public spaces used for the conference is not permitted. This practice skirts the support of the vendor/exhibitors and sponsors who have contributed time and money to exhibit at the conference. Anyone who is observed to be acting as an exhibitor/vendor and soliciting business, booking meetings in the public spaces or handing out information on their business who is not a registered vendor will be asked to leave immediately. Any Hospitality suites and usage of Meeting Rooms must be approved prior to the event by the NEAA Executive Board.
Any person(s) reported for violating this prohibition will be removed from the conference and barred from attending future conferences.
