Early Departure Penalty: $250 USD
To enhance the experience of attendees in the exhibit hall, AICI requires that all exhibit booths must remain fully

policy, AICI has instituted an early departure fee of $250 USD that will be assessed to any company that begins
to dismantle its booth or leaves its booth unattended before the official teardown time denoted in the exhibitor
prospectus. Payment of this fee will be required before the company is allowed to register for booth space at the
following annual conference and the company will be placed at the bottom of the list for booth assignments at
the next annual conference. AICI is dedicated to making our attendee and exhibitor experience enjoyable and
