If there are any questions or concerns regarding any of the information contained in this document, please contact exhibitors@acsi.org or 888.892.4259.  

Booth Assignment: ACSI assigns exhibit spaces on a first-come, first-served basis after receipt of exhibitor application and accompanying payment and acceptance of the application by ACSI.  ACSI reserves the right to refuse any exhibitor application for any reason.

Exhibitors who have not paid in full for their booth will not be allowed to exhibit.  

Exhibitor Booth Description: Exhibitor booth space will include one 6'x3' or 8'x3' table (size determined by event site), with at least one chair.

Electrical Access for Booth Location: While most event sites are able to provide electrical access to many or most booth locations, and ACSI will do its best to accommodate those requesting electrical access when assigning booths, ACSI cannot guarantee electrical service to all those requesting it at a particular event site. If there is additional cost for access to electricity, it will fall upon the exhibitor to make payment directly to the venue for electrical service.

Payment Due: Payment for all requested booth space is due payable in full net 30 days or prior to the start of the first event, whichever comes first. Exhibitor may not be allowed to exhibit if payment in full has not been made prior to the date of event. Instructions for submitting payment will be provided on the invoice that will be generated and emailed following receipt of completed registration form. Should you need assistance in making your payment, please contact ACSI Member Care at 800.367.0798.
