Use of space
Products and services to be exhibited must be in keeping with the interests of the Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology (SIMB). No subleasing of space is permitted. No side rails or counters may exceed 4 feet in height; background must not exceed 8 feet in height, including signs. Exhibits should be no higher than 48 inches above the table or wider than 6 feet. If you have a tabletop exhibit exceeding these limits, please contact email@example.com. Demonstrations or displays away from the exhibit hall during exhibit hours, except with permission of SIMB, are prohibited. No table may block the view of surrounding tables and must have adequate see-through area. Exhibitors may not place anything in the aisles during exhibit hours. SIMB reserves the right to limit or restrict operations, which for any reason might be considered objectionable, without any liability for refund or damage.
It is mutually agreed that in the event of cancellation of the RAFT® exhibition due to fire, strikes, picketing, embargo, injunction, acts of war, acts of God, governmental regulations, emergencies, any act beyond the control of SIMB, or any causes which would prevent its scheduled opening or continuance, then and thereupon this agreement will be terminated and SIMB shall determine an equitable basis for the refund of such portion of the exhibit fee as is possible, after due consideration of expenditures and commitments already made.
Requests for cancellations must be submitted in writing to the SIMB office. Refunds are available until October 7, 2022, if space can be resold, less a $75 administrative fee. No refunds will be issued after October 7, 2022.
