Exhibitor Agreement & Rules and Regulations 

Click here to view INTA’s Exhibitor Rules and Regulations.

In purchasing an exhibit space, each Exhibitor agrees to adhere to all conditions and regulations outlined in the Exhibitor Agreement & Rules and Regulations document.

The Exhibitor shall at all times during the Event observe and comply with INTA’s Exhibition Rules and Regulations (the “Exhibition Rules”), as may be updated from time to time. INTA shall have sole authority to interpret and enforce the Exhibition Rules and to make any amendments thereto as shall be necessary, in the sole judgment of INTA, for the orderly conduct of the Exhibition. The Exhibitor further agrees to comply with the Exhibition Rules and with all applicable laws, ordinances, and regulations. All matters and questions not specifically covered by these rules and regulations are subject to the decision of INTA, whose decisions will be final. The Exhibitor agrees to accept and abide by such decisions. 

The Exhibitor will be held responsible for any damage done by its employees or representatives to the Event venue. INTA reserves the right at any time to prohibit or remove any exhibit, display, device, or part thereof, or prohibit the exhibit, display, device, or promotional material that, in INTA’s opinion, is not suitable to or in keeping with the mission of INTA. 


Exhibit Booth Assignment

Exhibitors are assigned booth space based on “Priority Points.” Each organization is allocated one Priority Point per year of exhibiting. Exhibitors do not select their booth space. INTA reserves the right to make the final determination of all space assignments in keeping with the best interests of the Exhibition.


INTA Priority Points System Guidelines

Tier 1 Exhibitor: 15+ years’ exhibiting at the Annual Meeting
Tier 2 Exhibitor: 5‒14 years’ exhibiting at the Annual Meeting
Tier 3 Exhibitor: 0‒5 years’ exhibiting at the Annual Meeting

INTA calculates accumulated Priority Points for all previous years exhibited. Your organization is awarded one (1) Priority Point for every year your organization has exhibited at the Annual Meeting. Tier 1 Exhibitors will be assigned exhibit space first, based on their Priority Points.

Consideration will be given to applicants that are INTA members.

In the case of a tie, the date on which the application was received with full payment will dictate the order of the space assignment selection. 

If your company elects not to participate in any given year or cancels, ALL Priority Points are forfeited. 

An Exhibitor that merges or acquires another Exhibitor’s space will assume the higher of the two (2) (or more) Priority Point totals. Priority Points will not be combined.

INTA will deduct Priority Points for infraction of rules and regulations (e.g., not completing setup on time, dismantling earlier than closing time, etc.

Organizations should be aware that prime space is typically assigned to organizations that have a longer exhibit history. 

INTA reserves the right to assign space to an Exhibitor and/or rearrange the floor plan and/or relocate any exhibit at any time before or during the Exhibition. 

INTA does not guarantee that an Exhibitor will not be placed next to a competitor.


Exhibitor Kit-Reference Only

The online version of the exhibitor kit for the 2019 Annual Meeting will be available in February 2019.

Exhibitor Insurance

An Exhibitor must obtain exhibition insurance through its own insurance company to cover its personnel, exhibit material, and equipment for the duration of move-in, show days, and move-out, including public liability, property damage, fire and theft, etc.

• Certificate of Insurance and Liability: An Exhibitor is responsible for general liability insurance against injury to persons and property of others in its stand, along with its exhibits and machines to and from the show and during the show.

The Exhibitor acknowledges and agrees that its participation in the Exhibition is solely at the Exhibitor’s own risk. An Exhibitor who hires a third-party contractor for the installation of its booth should first check to make sure that the contractor has insurance coverage. 

Exhibitors shall obtain general liability, property damage, and fire insurance of not less than $1,000,000 combined single limits at the Exhibitor’s own cost and expense. International Trademark Association (INTA) must be named as coinsured with limits of liability of at least $1,000,000 combined single limits, including bodily injury, property damage, fire, and theft. Proof of such coverage shall be furnished to Paula Lee (plee@inta.org) no later than Monday, April 3, 2019.
