Michigan CAI Chapter has a no tolerance policy regarding “suitcasing”, which describes the practice of business partners, management companies or individuals soliciting sales or sales leads in any of the Chapter events where a paid sponsorship is required to participate, (i.e. Tradeshow, golf, luncheons, etc.). This includes any clothing or items that display a company logo.
The tradeshow has booth exhibitors and luncheon sponsors; in this case the luncheon sponsors are only allowed to attend the luncheon portion and are not allowed to enter the tradeshow floor at any time. Talking to clients or prospects in or in front of someone else’s booth is also a violation of the CAI policy and will not be tolerated. All parts of the exhibit must remain in the exhibitor’s assigned space. No exhibit will be allowed to infringe upon aisle space.
Violators of these policies will be ejected from the event and charged the amount of the event the member or nonmember has chosen to attend without proper permission. The charge must be paid in full before they are able to participate in any future function of the Chapter.
