Each booth includes exhibitor registration for two representatives. You may purchase up to two more registrations per booth. Additional representatives are $500 through April 7. After April 7, the price will increase to $550. The cost

ASPR Bingo Card Drawing – HAS GONE MOBILE!
ASPR will offer a Bingo Card Raffle after the Annual Business meeting on Tuesday again this year with one slight change – this year it will all be done electronically through the Mobile App! Each of you will receive a special code for your company to then be entered into each of the attendee’s mobile apps as they come around. Each code will give the attendee 1 point towards the point total they need to participate in the drawing at the Business Meeting. They will collect codes from sponsors and exhibitors in their mobile app throughout the conference until they hit a minimum by 1:00 pm Tuesday, May 2nd. Once this time hits we will pull the names of those that have made it to or surpassed minimum number of points and put them into a basket for you to draw from at the Business Meeting. We hope this program will provide you with greater opportunity to talk with as many attendees as possible.
If you choose to participate in the Mobile Bingo Card Raffle program, please notify Bridget Fox what your Raffle prize will be by April 7 so that it will be listed in the attendee registration materials. Prizes may not exceed $100 in value. You must be available to personally present your prize at the ASPR Business Meeting on Tuesday afternoon (at approx. 2:45 p.m.)
Exhibitor Door Prize Drawing
Exhibitors have the option to give away a door prize at their booth. Door Prize Drawing items will not be listed in onsite materials. There will be a board in the exhibit hall during the last break on Tuesday for you to post your door prize winners’ names. Exhibitors are responsible for contacting the winners directly. ASPR is not responsible for any prizes that are won and not collected.

Early Departure Penalty: $1,000
To enhance the experience of attendees in the exhibit hall, ASPR requires that all exhibit booths must remain fully set up and attended by a company representative until the specified tear-down time. To assist in enforcing this policy, ASPR has instituted an
early departure fee of $1,000 that will be assessed to any company that begins to dismantle its booth or leaves its booth prematurely unattended before the official tear down time denoted in the onsite exhibitor packet. Payment of this fee will be required before the company is allowed to register for a booth space at the following annual conference and the company will be placed at the bottom of the list for booth assignments at the next annual conference. ASPR is dedicated to making our attendee and exhibitor experience enjoyable and educational at all times. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation on this matter.
Written cancellation notice must be received via fax, mail, or email by February 27, 2017, to receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be given after this date. If ASPR cannot hold the conference due to acts of God, war, government regulations, disaster, strikes, civil disorder, or curtailment of transportation facilitating other emergencies making it inadvisable, ASPR Enforced Exhibiting Policies illegal, or impossible to provide the facilities or to hold the meeting, each prepaid registrant/exhibitor will receive a copy of conference handouts and any other materials that would have been distributed. Fixed conference expenses will be paid from the preregistration
funds. Remaining funds will be refunded to pre-registrants/exhibitors. ASPR is not responsible for any other costs incurred by pre-registrants/exhibitors in connection with the conference.
