Maximize the LTEN Experience at the Conference and Beyond. New Members and First-time Conference Participants Welcome!
New to the conference? Wondering how to get the most value for your membership? Then this discussion is for you. Join us Monday, June 5, 3:00 -4:00 PM. See mobile app agenda for location and details.
Learn how to make the most out of your conference experience through exploring the conference program, popular activities and new offerings. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to investigate what resources LTEN has to offer and to network with their peers before the conference officially begins.
In order to protect our valued exhibitors and the significant investment they have made to participate as a partner at the conference, our rules strictly prohibit solicitation by attendees who do NOT have exhibit booths. Any non-exhibitors who are observed soliciting business at the conference—a practice known as “suitcasing” or “outboarding”—will be asked to leave immediately.
Show management recognizes that outboarding may take the form of commercial activity by non-exhibitors conducted from a hotel guest room, hospitality suite or nearby restaurant or club. For the purposes of this policy, outboarding violations may occur at venues other than the exhibition floor.
Additional penalties may also be applied to individuals and companies found to be showcasing or outboarding, including:
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact Christine Gaudet, director of events, at cgaudet@l-TEN.org or (215) 357-1077.
