AzHIMA 2024 Show Management Rules and Regulations

I. INTRODUCTION
The Arizona Health Information Management Association, hereinafter know as AzHIMA, is a component state association (CSA) of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). The CSA is not a partner or agent of AHIMA. AHIMA does not review or control, and is not responsible for, any obligation the CSA may incur or any liability to which the CSA may be subject. Upon submitting a Booth/Sponsorship Application for the 2023 AzHIMA Annual Meeting & Exhibit, the exhibitor agrees to subscribe to all AzHIMA requirements, restrictions, and any other directives issued by AzHIMA. AzHIMA reserves the right to reject any and all applications at any time, for any reason or no reason at all; to reclaim any space; to have any of your representatives removed from the property for failure to conform to the Rules; to re-allot the space; and to offer requested space when available. All rights and remedies under this agreement shall be cumulative and none shall exclude any other rights and remedies allowed by law. Exhibitors in violation of the below conditions, rules, and regulations governing the Annual Meeting are subject to prompt disqualification from participation in this and future Annual Meetings. Exhibitor shall comply with all conditions, rules, and regulations regarding the Annual Meeting and with the requirements set forth in this and the Annual Meeting Booth/Sponsorship Application.

II. ELIGIBILITY TO EXHIBIT
The exhibit is an extension of AzHIMA’s continuing education program; therefore, exhibitor’s products and services should be relevant to the health information management (HIM) profession. To exhibit at the Annual Meeting, exhibitors must be in good financial standing with AzHIMA. AzHIMA has the right to refuse exhibit space rental if products, services, or displays are not compatible with the general character of the quality of the exhibit. The rules, policies, and regulations outlined on this form and the Booth/Sponsorship Application are part of the exhibitor’s contract.

III. SPACE ASSIGNMENT
Actual booth/space assignments will be available upon arrival to set up the booth on June 5, 2024. If exhibit hall space is sold out, notification will be made within 2 business days, and the organization applying to exhibit will be placed on a waiting list.

IV. BOOTH SPACE RENTAL FEE
The rental fee per 8’ X 10’ is $500 for 1(one) booth reserved on or before May 1, 2024, and $600 for 1 (one) booth reserved after May 1, 2024.

V. SUBLETTING OF SPACE
Exhibitors may not assign, sublet, or apportion the whole or any part of the space allotted to them and may not advertise or display goods or services other than those manufactured or sold by them in the regular course of their business.

VI. EXHIBIT REFUND POLICY
Monies to be refunded are based upon total booth space fees. Even if monies have not been paid in full at the time of cancellation, the appropriate amount due or to be refunded will be calculated based on the refund schedule listed here. Monies could still be due. Notification of cancellation must be in writing and received on or before the dates listed.

VII. TERMS OF PAYMENT
Payment for exhibit space should be made by credit card at the time the application is submitted, though arrangements can be made to pay by check. Please see the application/registration for further information. A receipt for the registration and payment will be provided via email to the Primary Booth Contact.

VIII. CANCELLATION
AzHIMA has the right to cancel allocated booth space upon reasonable cause or due to events that make performance impossible. In the event of such an occurrence, AzHIMA will provide written notification and agrees to negotiate in good faith toward a refund.

IX. CANCELLATION OF ANNUAL MEETING/EXHIBITION
In the event the 2023 AzHIMA Annual Meeting and Exhibit is cancelled due to disasters, strikes, government regulations, or causes preventing its scheduled opening or continuation, AzHIMA and its exhibitors agree this agreement will be terminated. Considering expenditures and commitments already made, AzHIMA will determine refunds on an equitable basis.

X. MERGERS
In the event of a merger of two or more exhibiting companies, the following rules will apply: One main contact will be designated by the purchasing company to AzHIMA, for all related correspondence and questions. The exhibit booth will have one identity both in the physical space and in the on-site program. A courtesy listing (example” ABC Company – see World Alliance) will be provided if requested in writing in the event of mergers or buyouts only, an additional listing can be purchased for each company now under the umbrella organization. The listing will be limited to the company description and product listing sections only. These additional listings are subject to the approval of AzHIMA and available only in the event of a merger, buyout, or the like. The same cancellation policy of fees and dates will apply to the mergers regardless of the ability of AzHIMA to resell the booth space.

XI. INSTALLATION AND DISMANTLING OF EXHIBIT
Installation begins June 5, 2024 (exact time TBD) and must be completed not later than 9:00 PM on the same date. Dismantling begins at 12:00 p.m. on June 7, 2024. Exhibitor booth space must be staffed during the specified exhibit hall hours with complete display intact. Companies dismantling prior to show close may lose their right to exhibit the following year. NOTE: The exhibitor assumes all financial responsibility for installation and dismantling of the exhibit. Times are subject to minor change depending upon changes to the education schedule of the show.

XII. EXHIBITOR USE OF SPACE & DEMONSTRATIONS
