During the conference LRWA will host a variety of additional activities for your enjoyment including:

    Families:  LRWA invites attendees to bring their families to the conference.  However, we ask that all spouses, children, and guests wear a name tag during the conference which will be provided to you in your registration packet or you can get one from the registration desk.  We ask that all children have adult supervision at all times during the conference.  The attending adult will be held responsible for the child's and/or children's actions.  The exhibit hall is not a place for children to play.  There are vendors exhibited that have very expensive equipment and LRWA does not want anyone to get hurt.  Only the attendee is allowed to fill out the Exhibitor initial sheet to be eligible for the door prizes.


    Exhibit Hall Pass:  If you are not registered for a course, but you wish to view only the exhibits, you will need to purchase an Exhibit Hall Pass.  If other personnel from your system wish to view the exhibit hall, they must also purchase a pass.  Passes can be purchased before hand (see the registration form) or passes can be purchased at the registration desk. 


    Cancellations:  Should you need to cancel your registration at any time for any reason, there will be a $75 processing fee before July 1, 2011.  There will be no refunds after July 1, 2011.


    Exhibitors:  Exhibitors may not sublet or assign any of their space to others.  Advertising or canvassing outside the individual exhibitor's booth is prohibited.  Combustible materials and explosives are prohibited; fire extinguishers and exits must not be obstructed.  Please contact the LRWA office is your company will be hosting a hospitality room.  We will publish this information in our final conference agenda.  No public address system will be allowed.  Any audio/visual presentation equipment must be limited to the hearing area of the booth.  LRWA will not be accountable for copyrighted music.  Exhibitors may not distribute food or beverages unless approved through the Alexandria Exhibition & Riverfront Center.


    We do have room available for outside exhibits, although there is no security outside.  The Alexandria Exhibition & Riverfront Center does have security inside the building at all times.  If you wish to have your equipment (trailer) inside the building you will need to inform the LRWA office on the size and weight of the equipment (Center has a weight limit).  Exhibitors shall assume all responsibility for any loss, damage or injury they may cause, and they shall hold harmless the LRWA and the Alexandria Exhibition & Riverfront Center.
