Print Rules & Regs 2022 Rules and Regulations for Exhibitors
The Arizona Dental Association (the “association”) extends a cordial invitation to firms and organizations that provide dental supplies, services and equipment used in the practice of dentistry to professionally exhibit at the Fall Conference (the “convention”).

The association has the sole and absolute right to accept or reject applications. For example, if your company promotes/sells skincare creams or LED devices/skin stimulators of any kind, we will not accept an application as we no longer allow these types of products/services at any of our events.

General Eligibility Requirements

The association reserves the right to bar any exhibitor which is not suitable or in accordance with the ethics or interests of the dental profession. The Council has full and final authority to interpret, amend, or supplement the rules and regulations presented in this prospectus. Exhibitors, by applying for and accepting exhibit space, agree to these Exhibiting Standards and any rules or regulations that may hereafter be adopted, and Exhibitors agree to abide by them.

All applicants for exhibit space must be and remain in good financial standing with the association and its agencies and subsidiaries in order to be accepted and remain as an exhibitor.

Booth Assignment
Participation in the Arizona Dental Association’s Fall Conference is on an invitational basis. The association reserves the right to accept applications to exhibit at the convention from individual exhibitors who participated in the 2022 Fall Conference but is not required to extend an invitation to any individual exhibitor. The extension of such an invitation is based upon an exhibitor’s acceptability.

The association will not be required to provide exhibitor’s exhibit space or put on the convention if there is an unlikely event or occurrence beyond the association’s control. Exhibitors shall indemnify and hold harmless the Arizona Dental Association from any/all liability which might ensue from any cause whatsoever. In addition, in such event regardless of duration, all deposits and payments made by the exhibitor shall be used by the association to pay and reimburse the costs and expenses incurred or paid by the association in connection with the preparation for or presentation of the 2022 Fall Conference. Any excess of said payments over said costs and expenses shall be returned to the exhibitor on such basis as the association shall deem reasonable.

The Arizona Dental Association reserves the right at its sole discretion to redesign or rearrange the exhibit floor plan if necessary, without prior notice to Exhibitor.

Sales by Non-Exhibiting Companies
Solicitation by non-exhibitors is prohibited. Firms and representatives not sold exhibit space are prohibited from soliciting business in any form to attendees without having a separate agreement with the association. Violators may, at the association’s sole discretion, be subject to a fine of the applicable registration fee and/or expulsion from the convention and be barred from further entrance to the convention.

All exhibits personnel must be full-time employees of the exhibiting company or representatives who receive commission, brokerage or salary from the exhibitor. False certification of individuals as exhibit representatives, or any other method or device used to assist unauthorized persons to gain admission to the virtual exhibit platform, may, at the association’s sole discretion, be subject to a fine of the applicable registration fee and/or expulsion from the convention and the violator may be barred from further entrance to the convention without any obligation on the part of the association for refund of any fees. Upon the exercise of this authority, the exhibitor, their employees and/or agents waives any rights or claims for damages against the Arizona Dental Association, its agents, or subsidiaries, arising out of the enforcement of this paragraph. Each exhibit space is limited to individuals, business firms, manufacturers and dealers who have contracted and paid to exhibit.
