ABAI’s priority is always the safety of our members and exhibitors. Please know we are closely monitoring CDC guidelines and local recommendations to ensure attendees have a safe and productive in-person convention experience.


Guidelines and recommendations change quickly. We recommend double checking all local guidelines, especially regarding testing requirements, a week before your planned departure. Currently there are no requirements for entry to the event. We do highly suggest social distancing and masks when there though.




 ABAI reserves the right to determine the suitability of all exhibits and advertisements submitted, and to reject those inconsistent with its mission. All exhibits will be reviewed and approved by the ABAI Practice Board. You will receive confirmation from the ABAI office when your application is approved.

Any exhibit space not occupied by the end of move-in hours is subject to reassignment or resale by the association without refund, unless prior approval is obtained in writing from ABAI.

Exhibitors may not assign, sublet, or apportion the whole or any part of the space allocated to them, or the exhibit therein, or permit any other person or firm to exhibit therein any goods other than those manufactured or distributed by the exhibitor in the regular course of business, without written consent.



No exhibit will be permitted to span an aisle by roofing or floor covering. The exhibit should be installed so as not to project beyond the space allotted or obstruct the sight lines of or otherwise interfere with other exhibitors. Exposed unfinished sides of exhibit backgrounds must be draped to present an attractive appearance. Inspections of the exhibits will be made during set-up time and an effort made to advise exhibitors of any deviation from the exhibit rules. In the event an exhibitor is not available, the exhibit manager will order necessary draping, and costs will be charged to the exhibitor.



Exhibitors are responsible for any items necessary for their displays, including furniture, material handling, draping, accessories, signs, electrical outlets, and so on, beyond those provided by ABAI.


Order forms for these items will be provided in an exhibitor service manual from the official decorator and will be available online.



Exhibitors must surrender space occupied by them in the same condition it was in at the commencement of occupation. Exhibitors or their representatives shall not injure or deface the walls, columns, floors, or furniture of the exhibit facilities. All property destroyed or damaged by the exhibitor must be replaced in its original condition by the exhibitor at his or her own expense. The exhibitor shall be liable for all property damaged.



Exhibitors may promote products only from their booths and take orders. No direct selling by exhibitors is permitted.



Canvassing or distributing advertising materials outside the exhibitor’s own space is not permitted.


It is strictly prohibited to publicize and/or maintain any extracurricular activities, inducements, or demonstrations away from the exhibition area during the exhibit hours.



ABAI will provide limited roaming security in the hall throughout the event. Do not leave items of value unattended. Exhibitors will be responsible for the security of booth materials and personal items at all times. Valuable items inside the booth space may require additional security at the exhibitor’s own expense.



Electrical or other mechanical apparatus must be muffled for noise and positioned so as not to interfere with other exhibits. X-ray equipment may not be operated. Volatile or flammable oils, gases, unprotected picture film, other explosive flammable material, or any substance prohibited by city laws or insurance carriers are not permitted on the premises.



If an exhibitor chooses to use its own contractor for material handling; labor; rental of mechanized equipment, standard and specialty furniture, carpet, or flooring; staging; exhibit rental; installation and dismantling labor; or transportation, the exhibitor must provide to the official decorator at least 30 days prior to the convention move-in date (i) a written statement setting forth the identity and intended use of the contractor and (ii) evidence from the contractor of the following minimum insurance coverage: (a) workers’ compensation insurance in the minimum amount as required by state law; (b) automobile liability insurance in a minimum amount of $2 million covering all owned, hired, and non-owned vehicles; and (c) commercial general liability insurance in a minimum of $2 million. Additionally, the contractor must list the official decorator and ABAI as additional insured on the policies.



The exhibitor agrees to ensure that its exhibit booth space is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To comply with the ADA, exhibitors should make every effort to accommodate attendees who are disabled.



Insurance and liability are the full and sole responsibility of the exhibitor. Neither ABAI; nor any of its officers, employees, or representatives; nor the owners, employees, or representatives of the official decorator or the convention center shall be responsible for injury, loss, or damage that may occur to the exhibitor’s property prior to, during, or subsequent to the exhibition period, provided such injury, loss, or damage is not caused by the negligence or willful act of one or more of the aforementioned parties. Exhibitors, by accepting space and making application for space, acknowledge the above terms and expressly release the above-named association, individuals, and firms from any, and all claims for such loss, damage, or injury.



The communications policy applies to all forms of written and verbal communication, including correspondence and online communications, as well as presentations and in-person communications. The policy is designed to preserve the mission of ABAI as a scientific organization and the safety of members, non-members, and staff.

Communication is meant to stimulate respectful conversation, share information, and invite dialog, not to create unnecessary conflict. ABAI values diverse opinions but expects members to express those opinions in an appropriate manner that is not offensive, demeaning, or derogatory. ABAI strictly prohibits defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, and illegal content and actions. All communications should be professional in nature. When in doubt, if the language would not be used or allowed in a work setting, it is likely not appropriate. Remain cognizant of how communications could potentially be perceived as offensive and/or bullying.

Please observe the following guidelines:

Stay on topic. When engaging in online or in-person communication, please keep comments on topic. Communication should be relevant to the scientific community and rely on accurate, verifiable information as much as possible. Communications should not be used for commercial solicitations including solicitations for money, goods, or services for charitable purposes or private gain, unless you have obtained proper permission.

Do not bully or harass others. We welcome professional and thoughtful dialogue on issues relevant to our mission. If you disagree with another person's opinion, please keep your communication respectful and intended to promote scientific dialogue. Do not threaten, bully, or harass other users.

Refrain from using hateful speech. Be respectful of others. Communications that may be perceived as an attack on other users based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or medical condition will not be tolerated. All presenters at ABAI events are expected to abide by this policy. Discriminatory and derogatory language with respect to individuals or groups based on their personal characteristics (e.g., race, gender) will not be tolerated at ABAI.

Do not use vulgar language or profanity. Although some terms might be informally accepted between friends, it is best to avoid using these types of language at all times.

Observe confidentiality laws at all times. Do not share confidential information inside or outside of the organization. This includes but is not limited to individual names, addresses, telephone numbers, and email addresses, if the individual has not given consent. Online communication platforms are open to anyone and intended for behavior analytic practitioners, scientists, researchers, and students; they are not an appropriate place for patients to seek information. ABAI requires all member communications to omit all identifying information from historical data and images, and to comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) restrictions regarding protected medical information.

Observe fair use, copyright, and disclosure laws. Always list the source of copyrighted materials and ensure you have permission to use them. This includes pictures, charts, graphs, tables, and excerpts of text. Materials that have not been authorized by the source for release should not be shared.

Be truthful. Never represent yourself in a false or misleading way. All statements must be true; all claims must be substantiated.

Violation of Communication Policy

ABAI reserves the right to take any action deemed appropriate for violations of this policy including but not limited to issuing a warning, removing content, and restricting access to group communications.

ABAI Rights

We reserve the right to update or modify this communication policy at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version on this site.
