VPhA 142nd  Annual Convention
Refunds (minus a $500 administrative fee) will be granted for cancellations received in writing and acknowledged prior to January 13, 2023. Cancellations of sponsorship or exhibit space received January 13, 2023 – February 1, 2023, will receive a 50% refund if a written request is received and acknowledged by VPhA prior to February 1, 2023. Cancellations made after this date will not be eligible for a refund. Any refunds due will be processed within 30 days of receipt of written notice of cancellation. Refunds will not be granted due to inclement weather, no-shows, or illness.

Default in Occupancy
Any exhibitor failing to occupy contracted space is not relieved of the obligation of paying the full rental of such space, as documented in the signed application. If a booth is not occupied by the opening of exhibits for attendees, the Association may repossess exhibit space.

Liability

It is understood that neither Virginia Pharmacists Association, the Hotel Roanoke, nor their members, officers, directors, or employees shall be held responsible for loss or damage of any property belonging to the sponsor, exhibitor, or any person(s) while in transit to or from, or while at the Hotel Roanoke. The exhibitor assumes complete responsibility and liability, and agrees to protect, save and hold forever harmless VPhA, the Hotel Roanoke, the hired exposition service company and all their agents, officers, and employees for any and all injury to persons or property in any way connected with the exhibitors’ display.
The exhibitor indemnifies and agrees to hold harmless the indemnities against and from any and all losses, costs, damages, liability, or expenses (including attorney’s fees) suffered to any person or persons including the exhibitor. The authorized representative, acting on behalf of the company, acknowledges that the company is liable for all exhibit-related fees unless the formal cancellation policy, as outlined in the prospectus, is followed.

Booth Staffing and Exhibitor Conduct

Exhibit booths must be staffed during all exhibit hours by qualified employees of the exhibitor, who must be able to explain or demonstrate the products or services on display. Products or services displayed must be related to the practice of pharmacy, merchandising or management of the pharmacy and of an educational nature.
Convention-issued badges must be worn at all times during exhibit hours. Those not wearing Convention badges will be subject to removal from the Exhibit Hall. Onsite changes to badges will be accommodated at no cost upon initial check in only. The number of badges issued will be limited to a total of four for the Convention.
The rights and privileges of an exhibitor shall not be infringed upon by any other exhibitor. To ensure adequate staffing while limiting the probability of intruding upon the space of another exhibitor, each booth will be limited to four representatives throughout the Convention. VPhA reserves the right to restrict exhibits which may be objectionable or to order the removal of any portion of an exhibit which, in the judgment of VPhA, is detrimental and detracts from the general order of the exhibits. The restriction includes articles, conduct, dress, printed matter or anything objectionable to the exhibit as a whole. Due to safety and health considerations, no one under 16 years of age will be admitted into the Exhibit Hall.
It is the policy of VPhA that the promotion of tobacco and tobacco related products is banned from the Exhibit Hall. There is absolutely no smoking allowed in the Exhibit Hall at any time.
Canvassing or distributing advertising material outside the exhibitor’s own space is not permitted.
