Cannabis Conference Exhibiting Policies


Suitcasing is the act of soliciting business in the aisles during the exhibition or in other public spaces by non-exhibiting companies, including another company's booth or a hotel lobby. It is Cannabis Conference Show Management’s objective to do everything legally possible to protect our Exhibitors from suitcasing. We want our Exhibitors to know that Cannabis Conference is tough on suitcasers, and that we are vigilant in our efforts to stop them in order to prevent Exhibitor unhappiness and show erosion.

Please note that while all meeting attendees are invited to the Cannabis Conference, any attendee who is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, in another company’s booth, or in violation of any portion of the Exhibit Policies, will be asked to leave immediately. Additional penalties may be applied. Please report any violations you may observe to Show Management.

Outboarding is defined by the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) as the creation of a concurrent event that is related to an existing exhibition or event but that is not sanctioned by the organizer, and which seeks to benefit from the audience the organizer attracts.

Our Exhibitors and event Sponsors invest significant financial and other resources in the planning and execution of their events. Their financial resources are at risk as are the business reputation and good will that are vital elements of an exhibitor’s business success. Cannabis Conference works diligently to protect our exhibitors’ and sponsors’ investment in the event by taking a firm stance against outboarding. We encourage official exhibitors to host parties and special events to enhance Cannabis Conference before and after show hours, but these activities should never be functions that compete against those who are making an additional investment in their brand at Cannabis Conference. During show hours, it is strictly prohibited to conduct education inside of meeting rooms or to promote any activity that directly competes with Cannabis Conference.

ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING/VAPING etc. inside the venue outside of the casino. While smoking is allowed in the casino, as well as in the smoking optional hotel rooms, it is prohibited in non-gaming areas of all Nevada casinos, including restaurants and bathrooms. Violators will be subject to ejection without refund. Additionally, Hemp, Marijuana or Cannabis plants/plant parts, their intermediary products, or their consumer products in any form cannot be displayed, sold, or distributed at this event. No Exhibitor/Vendor or Attendee shall be in open possession of Cannabis at the event facilities. No sampling or ingesting of edibles or combustion of any sort that is infused with Hemp/Cannabis/THC or CBD is allowed on the premises.

The use, distribution or sale of any product’s containing THC is strictly prohibited at Cannabis Conference including in the exhibit hall, conference session rooms, or any other space where conference events are conducted. Any individual who possesses, distributes, or consumes any THC-based products is solely responsible for his/her compliance with local and state regulations.

Show Management reserves the right to remove or to deny admission to anyone who is deemed a risk to the professional atmosphere of the event, who fails to comply with the rules & regulations of the event or hotel, or for any reason whatsoever. Show Management reserves the right to do so without liability for refund of any fees paid or due, and without liability for any other damages caused by such action. While hemp and marijuana are both from the Cannabis sativa plant, there is a legal distinction between the two terms based on the level of THC present in the plant. Hemp is any Cannabis sativa plant that contains a THC level of 0.3% or lower, while any plant with >0.3% THC is commonly referred to as marijuana. Marijuana remains illegal on a national level.

Hemp or cannabis plants of any kind are strictly prohibited from Cannabis Conference.

Additionally, this event excludes the use of live cannabis plants and plant parts (ex. seed, flower, leaf, stem), intermediary products (ex. extract, distillate, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers), THC products, consumer products, retailers, and consumers while on-site.
