Exhibitor Rules and Regulations

The rules and regulations contained herein are intended by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) to serve the best interest of the conference, the exhibitors and the registrants, and to give notice to applicants and exhibitors of governing rules and regulations. All applicants, exhibitors and exhibitor-appointed contractors are bound by these rules and regulations.

NACAC shall have full authority to interpret or amend these rules, and its decision is final. Exhibitors agree to abide by any rules or regulations that may hereafter be adopted, which shall be as much a part as though originally incorporated. All issues not addressed herein are subject to the decision of NACAC. These rules and regulations have been formulated in the best interest of all exhibitors.

The exhibitor understands and agrees that the information contained in this document and the NACAC Rules and Regulations are an integral and binding part of the Exhibit Space Contract, and that signing the exhibit space application/contract indicates understanding and agreement to comply with all policies, rules, regulations, terms and conditions, and any others issued by NACAC regarding the conference; willingness to abide by the payment policy; acknowledgment of having read NACAC’s Rules and Regulations; and agreement to distribute them for proper execution to those individuals involved with exhibiting.


Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Exhibitors are fully responsible for complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regarding booth space, including, but not limited to, the wheelchair access provisions. Exhibitors indemnify, hold harmless and defend NACAC, its officers, directors, agents, members, and employees from and against any claims, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and expenses) resulting from or arising out of the exhibitors’ failure or allegations of exhibitors’ failure to comply with the provisions of the ADA. Information regarding ADA compliance is available from the US Department of Justice ADA Information Line (800-514-0301).

Live animals are not allowed in an exhibit for any purpose.

Appropriate Booth Behavior 
Exhibitor booth personnel and representatives may not enter the exhibit space of another exhibitor without permission from that exhibitor, and, at no time, may anyone enter an exhibit space that is not staffed. Attendants, models, and other employees must confine their activities to the contracted exhibit space.

Professional behavior is expected by each company, its representatives, and exhibitor-appointed contractors at all times during the NACAC Conference. Any provocation of another either verbally, physically or by any other means will result in all parties involved surrendering their badges immediately and being escorted off the premises by security, and all parties being prohibited from attending the remainder of the NACAC Conference. If there is more than one offense, NACAC will prohibit the parties’ attendance at all future shows.

Approval of Booths Schematics
All lighting and overhead rigging must be approved by NACAC. Self-contained visuals are permitted. Overhead rigging is not permitted on in-line booths or booths less than 400 sq. ft. Exhibitors with island booths must submit a booth schematic to NACAC Show Management for review and approval by Friday, July 22, 2022 to

Audio Use 
Utilization of audio is allowed, if audible only within a 2' perimeter. This includes live, projected and or recorded audio. Speaker units can be placed within the confines of the booth space but cannot be within 2' of the aisle. Exhibitor acknowledges and agrees that it shall be solely responsible for obtaining any licenses, permits, etc., which may be required for it to broadcast, perform or display any copyrighted materials including, but not limited to, music, video and software. Exhibitors indemnify, defend, and hold NACAC, its officers, directors, agents, members, and employees from and against any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or related to exhibitor’s breach of this provision.

Auxiliary Meetings 
NACAC realizes the value of networking with current or potential clients outside of the Exhibit Hall but asks that exhibitors do so within the parameters set forth by NACAC. Before any event can be contracted, exhibitors interested in hosting an event at any time during the week of the NACAC Conference (defined as the Sunday before exhibitor load-in, through the Tuesday following the last day of the conference) must complete and submit a Meetings Request Form (available in late March) for approval by NACAC. All events held in conjunction with the NACAC Conference, regardless of where the event will be held, must submit a form. NACAC reserves the right to require the exhibitor to adjust event times or locations based on NACAC events scheduled during the conference. All expenses associated with changing the date, time or location of an unapproved event are the sole responsibility of the exhibitor.

These events include, but are not limited to, any of the following:

  • Social Events or Hospitality Events
  • Chapter/Non-profit Events
  • Media Events
  • Focus Groups
  • Educational programming
  • Trips
  • Sales/Staff Meeting
  • Consulting Meeting


All drape is provided by The Expo Group in show colors, and no other drape is allowed.

Helium balloons, of any kind, as part of the exhibit or as a giveaway are strictly prohibited. NACAC staff reserves the right to confiscate any helium balloons on the exhibit floor. If helium balloons get loose in the exhibit hall, it is the exhibitor’s responsibility to retrieve them. Any costs required to retrieve helium balloons in the exhibit hall are the exhibitor’s responsibility. 


Cancellation Policy
All requests for cancellation of space must be received in writing. If cancellation request is received by May 31, 2022, the exhibitor will receive a refund less the cancellation fee of $100.00 per 10' x 10' booth space. Booth downsizing is treated as booth cancellation. In addition, priority points are cumulative, and all priority points will be lost at the time of cancellation. There are no refunds after June 1, 2022.

Care of Premises
No part of an exhibit, signs or other materials may be posted, nailed, taped, or otherwise affixed to walls, doors or floor surfaces in a way that will mar or deface the premises. The use of Velcro, stick-on decals, or similar items and/or tape on any vertical surface, including, but not limited to, painted walls and portable walls within the facility is strictly prohibited. Exhibitors are responsible for any damage to the facility.

Carpeting/Floor Covering
Flooring is not provided as part of your booth fees but is required in each exhibit booth. Exhibitors can rent carpet from The Expo Group, our general services contractor, or can provide their own carpet or floor covering. If providing their own, the carpet or floor covering must fit the full dimensions of the booth space. 

If flooring is not installed in a booth by 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21, NACAC will request The Expo Group install carpet in the booth and provide the exhibitor with a bill for service, which is the Exhibitor’s responsibility. 

Carpet installation will not be allowed during booth finishing, between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 22.

Children under the age of 18 are not allowed in the Exhibit Hall at any time. Because of the professional nature of the program and limited seating, children are not allowed in the conference sessions at any time. 

Counselors’ College Fair (CCF)
Exhibitors are not permitted to conduct activities (sales, recruitment or other) in or near this event. NACAC reserves the right to deduct exhibitor priority points from a company’s total for violating this rule. NACAC retains the right under this agreement to remove any exhibitor from the premises who, at NACAC’s sole discretion, engages in inappropriate behavior. Removal may also include the termination of the exhibitor’s license to exhibit, granted herein, and the closing and removal of the exhibit. Exhibitor hereby waives any and all claims for damages against NACAC by reason of such removal. Removal under these circumstances may result in an exhibitor being barred from future NACAC shows.


Demonstration areas must be organized within the contracted exhibit space. Demonstration tables cannot be placed closer than 2' from the aisle. Should spectators or samplers interfere with the normal traffic flow in the aisle or overflow into neighboring exhibits, NACAC reserves the right to require the exhibitor to immediately discontinue the activity.

Dismantling Exhibits
As a consideration to NACAC attendees and your fellow exhibitors, no exhibit dismantling or removal may begin until official exhibit hours have ended at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 24, 2022. Dismantling exhibits includes packing equipment, literature, display materials, graphics, giveaways, or in any way altering the appearance of an exhibit. Dismantling exhibits or “preparing to dismantle” before the show closes is prohibited. NACAC reserves the right to deduct exhibitor priority points from a company’s total for violating these rules. Neither NACAC nor NACAC’s general services contractor, The Expo Group, will assist with an early dismantling, including delivery of empty crates/boxes or shipping. Empty crates/boxes for display materials will be returned as promptly as possible to each booth after the official closing time. NACAC and the facility hosting the meeting do not assume any responsibility for loss or damage to exhibits, equipment or personal belongings during the dismantling period. All exhibitors with booths intact through the full hours of the show will receive five (5) additional priority points toward their totals. NACAC's exhibits manager will check booths between 1:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 24.

Display Regulations
Following are the listing of height restrictions and display regulations for each booth type allowed at NACAC Conference 2022:

  • Linear Booths are sold in increments of 10' wide and 10' deep (i.e., 10' x 10'). The back wall height may be a maximum of 8'. Regardless of the number of linear booths utilized (e.g., 10' x 20', 10' x 30', 10' x 40', etc.), display materials should be arranged in such a manner so as not to obstruct sight lines of neighboring exhibitors. For 10' x 10' or 10' x 20' booths, the maximum height of 8' is allowed only in the rear half of the booth space, with a 4' height restriction imposed on all materials in the remaining space forward to the aisle. (Note: When three or more linear booths are used in combination as a single exhibit space, the forward space 4' height limitation is applied only to that portion of exhibit space, which is within 10' of an adjoining booth). Linear booths are generally arranged in a straight line and have neighboring exhibitors on their immediate right and left, leaving only one side exposed to the aisle; however, they can offer two sides exposed to an aisle when they are at the end of a straight line of booths. They are on the “corner” of that line, and all of the above rules apply to these booths. View Linear Booth line drawing.
  • Perimeter Booths are Linear Booths that back to an outside wall of the exhibit facility rather than to another exhibit. All guidelines for Linear Booths apply to Perimeter Booths except that the maximum back wall height is 12'. In addition, a hanging sign is allowed with the restriction that the top of the sign is permitted at 12' or below. View Perimeter Booth line drawing.
  • Island Booths are 20' x 20' or larger. The entire cubic content of the space may be used up to the maximum allowable height of 20'. Hanging signs are allowed with the restriction that the top of the sign is permitted at 20' or below. View Island Booth line drawing​. All lighting and overhead rigging must be approved by NACAC. Self-contained visuals are permitted. Exhibitors with island booths must submit a booth schematic to NACAC Show Management for review and approval by Friday, July 22, 2022 to

The exhibitor is responsible for arranging all shipments, supplies and drayage services. No arrangements will be made with the convention center to receive any shipments from any supplier. Drayage information will be enclosed in The Expo Group Exhibitor Services Kit (sent to all exhibitors in late June). 


Enforcement of Rules and Regulations
In purchasing an exhibit space, each exhibitor agrees to adhere to all conditions and regulations outlined in this document. Any violations shall subject the exhibiting company to these penalties:

  • Suspension from exhibiting at the current conference.
  • Loss of priority points
  • Loss of all exhibiting privileges (i.e., company will not be invited to exhibit at any future NACAC conferences).

Any exhibiting organization that fails to notify NACAC, in writing, prior to the conference of its intent to cancel is deemed a no-show. A no-show may result in a loss of exhibiting privileges at future NACAC conferences, and no refunds will be issued. Infractions of the spirit of the rules by potential exhibitors at any time may be considered in determining whether to accept an application from such company seeking to exhibit at any NACAC Conference. Each exhibitor is granted nothing more than a terminable license to exhibit, subject to all the rules herein and the approval of the association. If NACAC determines that any exhibitor has failed to comply with any rule herein or any directive issued to the exhibitor, the association may terminate the license and close that exhibiting company’s exhibit. If this occurs, the exhibitor will be notified in writing. In all interpretations of the NACAC Rules and Regulations, NACAC’s decision is final.

Removal may also include the termination of the exhibitor’s license to exhibit, granted herein, and the closing and removal of the exhibit. Exhibitor hereby waives any and all claims for damages against NACAC by reason of such removal. Removal under these circumstances may result in an exhibitor being barred from future NACAC shows.

Exhibits are subject to the approval of NACAC. NACAC reserves the right, even after an application has been approved, to refuse exhibits, curtail activities or close exhibits or parts of exhibits that do not, in NACAC’s determination, comply with the NACAC Rules and Regulations governing the NACAC show; are contrary to NACAC’s public policies, positions, statements, or guidelines; or otherwise reflect unfavorably on the character of the meeting.
