IPI has a zero tolerance policy regarding suitcasing.
Any IPI Conference & Expo attendee (non-exhibitor) who is observed soliciting business in the trade show aisles will be asked to forfeit their badge and leave the show floor immediately.
Violators of these policies will be ejected from the show and charged the single-booth rate ($3,795), which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future IPI conference or other event.
Please report any violation you observe to show management.
Definition of “Suitcasing”
Suitcasing at the IPI Conference & Expo is defined as any activity by one who has not paid an exhibition fee (i.e. purchased a booth) where the activity is designed to solicit or sell products or services to other exhibitors or attendees without authorization by IPI to engage in such solicitation. Suitcasing can occur by those who are registered as attendees or by parties misrepresenting their business or entity relationship to IPI.
