This policy applies to all exhibitors who share a common parent company. The parent company must notify CEDIA Show Management of all exhibitors who fall under the same parent company in writing by June 2 prior to the opening of the current year’s show.
Each exhibitor is required to submit a Space Application Form and is permitted individual identity on the exhibit floor. Each exhibitor under the same parent company is able to select its own exhibit space, or share with another exhibitor. Each exhibitor will be listed as an exhibitor with full rights in all trade show materials and program listings.
Each exhibitor is responsible for the cost of their booth space. The parent company is able to make payments towards subsidiary exhibitors’ invoices.
Impact on priority points:
Exhibitors owned by the same parent company will continue to accrue priority points separately.
For booth selection - Exhibitors owned by the same parent company may select exhibit space at the same time as the exhibitor with the highest priority points. The selection will be in order of priority points within the group, beginning with the highest points and continuing with the next highest, etc.
For example: Exhibitor A, B, and C are owned by XYZ Corporation. Exhibitor A has 100 points, Exhibitor B has 15 points and Exhibitor C has 10 points. As part of the same parent company, Exhibitors A, B, and C are able to select at the same time. Because Exhibitor A has the highest points between the three exhibitors, Exhibitors B and C will also select with Exhibitor A, but still in order of points. Company Dissolves that falls under Parent Company:
The Parent Company can do one of two things (1) Parent Company will acquire all of the points that the dissolved company has to that point (2) Parent Company can choose to add dissolved companies points to another one of their brands. This transfer of points can only happen once and cannot keep switching around points between brands.
