AUDIO/VISUAL, ELECTRICAL AND SHIPPING NEEDS:  Heartbeat International will be using a drayage company for all our Exhibiting needs.  All fully paid exhibitors will receive a copy of the Exhibit Services Kit containing order forms and rates for all amenities and services.  All orders placed through the kit are the sole responsibility of the exhibitor.  Please be certain to read all materials contained within the Kit.  Electric must be ordered through the hotel directly.

RECORDING RELEASE: The Heartbeat Conference will be recorded.  Your registration constitutes your organization's consent to such recording for the booth representatives and/or any guests.

CANCELLATION:  If written notification of cancellation is received by February 27, 2013, all exhibitor monies, less a $50 processing fee, will be refunded.  No refunds will be given after midnight February 27, 2013.  Ads may be withdrawn from the program book until February 27, 2013.  Failure to submit ads by February 27, 2013 may result in omission from the program book.  Monies, minus a $50 processing fee will be returned.

USE OF SPACE:  Exhibitor shall not assign, sublet, or share the space allotted without the knowledge and consent of Heartbeat International.

EXHIBIT SETUP AND TEARDOWN:  The 2013 conference begins with registration at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 3 and runs through Friday, April 5. Heartbeat International has contracted with the hotel to allow for exhibit set-up beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2. We request that you make every effort to have your exhibit set up by 8:00 a.m. on April 3; however, if you cannot come until later, you must make arrangements with Heartbeat International. The Exhibit Hall closes at 2:30 on Friday, April 5, 2013 for teardown

Failure to occupy the exhibition space does not release exhibitor from the obligation to pay the full exhibitor fee. Please contact us at 888-550-7577 if special arrangements for late arrival need to be made.
