The Fine Print

Expo Layout and Format

This conference will provide you with opportunities to network with the attendees during expo hours, over meals, during breaks, and during the evening social event.

Display Restrictions

All display items must be within the confines of the booth – no banners/counters/etc. on the floor and nothing in the aisle without prior approval by show coordinator. Absolutely no glitter or confetti allowed (violators will be assessed a $200 clean-up fee). No open flames allowed.

Your Exhibit Space

Booths are assigned based on sponsorship and the date payment is received in full. Exhibitors are able to request their top 5 booth preferences on the exhibit contract. MHCA does not assume responsibility for location of exhibit space selected or its proximity to any other exhibitors. Booths may not be shared with other vendors.

Want to Add Additional Booth Reps or Change Names?

Booth fees include two complimentary booth representatives. Additional representatives will be charged $150. If you did not list the names of your representatives or need to change them, please contact the MHCA at 651-635-0783.

Hotel Information and Reservation Details to be announced.

Event Cancellation and Refund Policy

Expo cancellations must be in writing and received by MHCA 60-days prior to the event. No refunds for cancellations made after the cancellation deadline (March 16, 2018) or for no-shows (exceptions will only be made to this policy, should we be sold out with a wait list and able to secure a replacement).

Expo booths must be paid in full within 30-days of receipt of invoice. Sponsorships must be paid in full to be secure or promoted. Booths may not be shared with other vendors.

Event sponsorship is not refundable.

Additional Rules of Conduct – Suitcasing Policy

Exhibitors will not distribute souvenirs or coupons outside of the exhibitor’s paid-for display space, post signs or other advertising displays elsewhere in the hotel, or sponsor any event that conflicts with the expo. Any distribution of sales materials or business cards or the attempt to solicit business from exhibitors or show visitors by non-exhibiting companies is a form of criminal trespass and strictly prohibited; violators will be removed by security. Please report any such activity to MHCA staff – violators are unfairly and unethically taking business and attention away from you, the paying participant. Exhibitors are discouraged from entering drawings for other exhibitors’ show prizes.
