Badge Fees

Exhibitors may register up to four representatives free of charge for each 10’ x 10’ booth or equivalent. Requests for more than four per 10' x 10' booth require Exhibit Manager approval.

Companies requesting more than their allotted number of free exhibit badges will be charged $995 per additional badge/person. This assessment is made following the AAFP Assembly based on a final badge count. The return of unused badges to exhibitor registration must be made before 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 23, 2014, to not count against your company's allotment.

Badge Information

  • Booth personnel are not allowed admission to the exposition hall without an AAFP official badge. This applies to all exhibitors and other personnel such as models or temporaries. Personnel identification is required.
  • If badges are requested to be sent in advance, they will be sent via First Class Mail after September 30, 2014, to your designated company official. Requests for badges to be mailed must be received by September 19, 2014.
  • Badges may be held at the exhibitor registration counter instead of being sent by First Class Mail upon request in the online badge system.
  • Individuals requesting badges on-site may be required to show a business card and/or personal identification.
  • Badges are the property of the AAFP and must be relinquished on request. Failure to comply constitutes a violation of these rules and regulations.

Models or Temporary Personnel

If your company orders models or other temporary personnel, please provide them with the correct company name, booth number, and on-site contact name. These individuals cannot gain entrance to the exposition hall without an official badge; badges are not issued unless a connection with a legitimate exhibiting company is verified.

Guest Policy

The AAFP’s Exhibitor Advisory Council has recommended only qualified prospects be given access to the exposition hall. Therefore, badges are not issued to representatives of leasing companies, financial institutions, suppliers, vendors, and others wishing to make business contacts, nor to exhibitors’ family and guests.

Exhibits are open and must be staffed at the following times: Thursday, October 23, 2014 and Friday, October 24, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and Saturday, October 25, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Exhibitors are expected to make their airline reservations in accordance with this policy.
