IPMI has a zero tolerance policy regarding suitcasing.
Any IPMI Conference & Expo attendee (non-exhibitor) who is observed soliciting business in the trade show aisles will be asked to forfeit their badge and leave the show floor immediately.
Violators of these policies will be ejected from the show and charged the single-booth rate, which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future IPMI conference or other event.
Please report any violation you observe to the Conference team.
Definition of “Suitcasing”
Suitcasing at the IPMI Conference & Expo is defined as any activity by one who has not paid an exhibition fee (i.e. purchased a booth) where the activity is designed to solicit or sell products or services to other exhibitors or attendees without authorization by IPMI to engage in such solicitation. Suitcasing can occur by those who are registered as attendees or by parties misrepresenting their business or entity relationship to IPMI.
Meetings may not be booked at any IPMI contracted property if the organization is not a member in good standing and registered for the event.
