NO exceptions. On-site babysitting services are available (bring your own diapers, wipes, blankets, food, etc).

- In order to attend the Expo and walk the show floor, you MUST be in the hospitality industry. For example, an “Attendee” is someone in the following businesses: hotel, motel, bed & breakfast owners and managers, condo managers, restaurant owners and managers, liquor and convenience stores, catering companies, coffee shops, ice cream stores, campgrounds, hospital, school cafeteria and nursing home managers and purchasing agents. Expo management reserves the right to determine if your registration fits these parameters.
- If you are considered an “Exhibitor,” (someone who sells and services the industry), you will not be allowed to attend without purchasing an exhibit booth ~ sorry ~ we must protect those who purchase booths!
