The following Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations have been established by the International Association of Exhibitions and Events® (IAEE) to assist in promoting continuity and consistency among North American exhibitions and events. This revised 2019 edition is offered as a resource for exhibition and event organizers to use in creating consistent and fair exhibiting standards for their events. Recognizing that every show is unique, IAEE presents the information contained within as recommendations or suggestions for exhibiting standards each Organizer should consider. Organizers are encouraged to review the Guidelines and then develop their own show-customized set of exhibiting rules and regulations based on the individual features of their specific exhibition or event. Once an Organizer has finalized their show’s official set of display rules, it is good practice to provide access to a digital copy within the show’s exhibitor prospectus, an exhibitor services kit, and the official rules and regulations pertaining to exhibitor participation. By providing exhibitors with the professional standards expected of their displays and participation, they will be prepared to properly design, build and plan their booth’s layout and content allowing for an environment where all exhibitors will have the opportunity for successful interaction with their audiences. Important Note: Although compliance with fire, safety, the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other state, federal or provincial government requirements have been addressed, Organizers should always check with exhibition service contractors and the facility for specific details on local regulations and requirements. IAEE is a global association that serves as the foremost authority on exhibitions and events management and operations, and these Guidelines are the model for most North American exhibitions and events but in all instances, organizations should consult their legal counsel. In no event shall IAEE be held liable for damages of any kind in connection with the material, methods, information, techniques, opinions or procedures expressed, presented, or illustrated in these Guidelines or related materials.
