EXHIBITORS FAQ

I heard NORTHEAST is cancelled. Now what?

AASP/NJ has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person version of NORTHEAST 2020 (originally scheduled for March 20-22 then postponed to August 21-23 prior to cancellation), in favor of a VIRTUAL event. This FREE event will enable attendees to visit exhibitors’ virtual “booth” pages online, view product information and videos, and even schedule virtual meetings with vendors. This will occur on a dedicated link that will be available beginning at 5pm EST on August 21 via the NORTHEAST website,  aaspnjnortheast.com. Exhibitors are invited to begin populating their virtual booth pages in preparation for the virtual NORTHEAST 2020 – please click here to complete your exhibitor profile.

My company is contracted to exhibit at NORTHEAST but we are unable to attend. Can we get a refund on our booth space?

Per the NORTHEAST exhibitor booth agreement, all deposits and payments on NORTHEAST exhibitor space are non-refundable. Submission of a completed booth agreement serves as an agreement to pay for contracted booth space regardless of attendance. Please view NORTHEAST exhibitor terms and exclusions as found on page 2 of the exhibitor booth agreement, or click here.

Can we get a refund on our booth space due to the cancellation of the in-person NORTHEAST?

NORTHEAST 2020 exhibitors have been given the option to shift their paid booth fees ahead to our 2021 in-person event, scheduled for March 19-21, 2021. Per the NORTHEAST exhibitor booth agreement, exhibitors requesting a refund are eligible for a refund on their paid booth fees, minus a proportionate share of AASP/NJ’s expenses towards the event. Please view NORTHEAST exhibitor terms and exclusions as found on page 2 of the exhibitor booth agreement, or click here. Please contact Event Management with any questions about this policy.

Can I reserve a specific booth location?

Exhibitors are asked to list their top 3 most-preferred booth locations when submitting exhibitor booth agreements. Upon receipt of signed agreement and 50% deposit, event management will make all attempts to honor exhibitor requests but cannot guarantee all requests will be honored.
