All refunds will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee, which will be deducted from all refund checks. Refunds will be processed within six weeks from the close of the event.

Exhibitors may refer to their 2022 PFCS Exhibitor Booth Contract for their cancellation and refund policy.

No Suitcasing
Suitcasing refers to those companies or persons who go to shows as attendees but “work the aisles,” soliciting business from other attendees and exhibitors.  Any attendee who is not affiliated with the conference as either a sponsor or exhibitor and is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles, other public spaces, or another company’s booth, will be asked to leave immediately.  Public spaces include hotel guest rooms, hospitality suites, PFCS networking event venues, restaurants, or any other public places of assembly.

Attendees and non-exhibiting persons are not permitted to have inventions or products on the show floor at any time.  This includes prototypes and any documentation for distribution purposes. This applies to anyone who is not a paid exhibitor.

No Liability
Show management is NOT responsible for injuries, property damage or loss of any kind, or for any other incidents, directly or indirectly connected with attending the show.  Attendees assume all business and personal risk before, during, and after the show.

Sole Discretion
Show management shall have sole discretion over admission at all times and shall strictly enforce all show rules.  Attendees agree to abide by these attendance rules, as well as all other rules applicable to their badge type, which may be updated at any time. Violators risk immediate confiscation of their show badge without refund and removal from the premises. Violators will not be allowed re-entry.

Any violations of the stated above will be reviewed and will result in revocation of attendance privileges for future conferences.

Regardless of which route you take, we’ll be sure to keep the drinks and snacks coming.

Calling all industry newcomers, veterans, and everyone in between!

Although this event will be held offsite, you won't have to venture far as the venue, Knotty Barrel, is less than a mile away from the Hyatt. INCLUDED WITH REGISTRATION.
