What’s New for 2019?

Peninsula Exhibits (10' x 20' end cap)

  • A Peninsula Booth is an exhibit which occupies both corners at the end of a row of standard inline booths with an aisle on three sides. Due to this verify unique configuration, it is the responsibility of the exhibiting company to ensure that your processing and procurement department or anyone else involved in the design and construction of your exhibit has a copy of these rules and regulations. If any of the design rules are violated during the construction phase, TES has the authority to take action against the exhibiting company. The action taken will be determined on the basis of the particular circumstance of each case, but in cases involving major violations the action is subject to relocation, or immediate closing of an exhibit without refund to the exhibitor. All matters in question not specifically covered by the Exhibit Booth Configurations rules and regulations are subject to the decision of the AAPM Annual Meeting leadership through the staff or Board of Directors.
  • All display fixtures over 4ft (1.22m) in height and placed within 10ft (3.05m) of a neighboring exhibit, must be confined to that area of the booth that is at least 5ft (1.52m) from the aisle line to avoid blocking the sight line from the aisle to the adjoining booth.
  • Complete accurate scaled drawings of all peninsula booths must be submitted to TES for review and approval by April 26. This process is to ensure that the exhibiting company’s booth satisfies the basic criteria for technical exhibits.
  • Hanging signs are NOT permitted for peninsula booths.
