SfN will cancel exhibitor hotel rooms proportional to the reduction of exhibit space and entire room blocks held by a company cancelling the entire exhibit space.

Any exhibitor failing to occupy space is not relieved of the obligation to pay full rental price for space. The Society will have the right to use exhibit space as it sees fit, provided the space is not occupied one hour prior to the scheduled exhibit hall opening.
No subletting or sharing of exhibit space is permitted. Exhibitors may not release or assign any of their contracted space to another company.
In the event that an exhibiting company merges with, is acquired by, or purchases another exhibiting company, the seniority accumulated by either company (whichever is highest) will be used. Exhibit Management must be notified in writing of such changes, including public announcement of the transaction.
If two or more companies wish to be assigned exhibit space adjacent to one another, each company must submit the request under comments on the exhibit application with an explanation of why you would like to be located next to each other. Exhibit Management is not responsible for accommodating adjacent booth assignment for exhibit space applications that arrive separately or without documentation. Upon receipt of the application, the exhibit space assignment will be made by averaging the co-marketing companies’ priority points. Exhibit Management will locate adjacent space based on the best use of the exhibit floor space. Requests for specific locations may not be honored. If two or more divisions of the same company wish to exhibit together, they may exhibit under one company name. All housing, badges, and Exhibit Guide listings will be conducted in one name only. Multiple housing blocks are not permitted.
Exhibitors are provided one complimentary alphabetical listing in the Exhibit Guide. Exhibitors may purchase additional alphabetical listings in the Exhibit Guide for $900 per listing.
When two or more companies have joint rights to a product and the contract stipulates all company names must appear with the product, the Society reserves the sole right to determine how or if the name of the non-exhibiting company will appear on all exhibit related materials.
