Selling of Products or Services
The purpose of the AGS exhibit program is to further the education of the registrants by providing an area for exhibitors to present information on products or services pertinent to their professional interest. With the exception of book publishers and EMR vendors, the sale of merchandise or equipment of any kind is prohibited in the exhibit hall.
- Carpet - to minimize costs at AGS19, the AGS has decided to eliminate carpet in the exhibit hall at the Oregon Convention Center. Exhibitors will not be required to carpet their individual booths. This is a significant cost saving.
- No booth may have any roofing that prevents sprinklers from operating properly.
- No exhibit may span an aisle with roofing or floor covering.
- Exposed unfinished sides of exhibit backgrounds must be draped to present an attractive appearance. In the event this is not done, and the exhibitor is not available, the Exhibits Manager will order such draping, which will be charged to the exhibitor.
