Exhibit Regulations

The AMS Exhibit Program conforms to the rules and regulations of the International Association of Exhibitions and Event (IAEE) with one exception, noted below. AMS will designate Official Contractors to provide various services to the exhibitors. Such contractors will provide exhibit services, except supervision. The Exhibitor shall provide only the material and equipment he/she owns to be used in his exhibit space. All other items used in the booth are to be provided by the Official Contractors.

AMS has been following IAEE’s Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations for many years. This includes regulations on such things as lighting, sound/music, storage of excess materials and height of booth structure/signage.

Visiting the Exhibits

The AMS attendee badge includes admission to the Exhibit Hall. Non-registered guests of exhibitors should bring their invitations to the Exhibitor Check-In Desk to receive their guest pass. Guests are only allowed on the exhibit floor during show hours and must wear a badge at all times.

For more information, please contact Jenn Rosen, AMS Exhibits Manager (tel: 617-226-3972; e-mail: jrosen@ametsoc.org).


Exhibitors at the AMS 38th Conference on Radar Meteorology Conference have invested and committed their support to this industry. They have planned for several months or more to bring the Attendees the experience they seek and deserve. Suit-casing refers to those companies or persons who attend the Meeting and “work the aisles” from their suitcase (briefcase) and solicit business in the aisles, conference areas or hotels.

Suit-casing Policy: Only contracted Exhibitors are permitted to promote their products, services or company at the Meeting. All company promotion and product sampling must occur within the contracted booth space. This includes, but is not limited to handing out flyers, approaching Exhibitor booths to sell products, and leaving and/or distributing product information in public spaces and show floor aisles. Exhibitors found doing so will be sent back to their booth space and materials left will be confiscated and disposed of properly. Attendees will be asked to leave the show and forfeit their badge. Additional penalties may apply. Any “suit-casers” observed by either attendees and/or exhibitors should be reported to the Show Management immediately.


There are several sponsorship opportunities available at the 38th Conference on Radar Meteorology. All sponsors will receive recognition on the conference website, conference program and signage at event sponsored. Interested companies and organizations should contact Jen Ives at jives@ametsoc.org.
