Policy Administration

These Exhibition Rules and Regulations are part of the contract between the exhibiting company ("exhibitor") and the  Wisconsin Chapter of the National Emergency Number Association ("WI-NENA") along with the Wisconsin Association of Public-Safety Communication Officials ("WI-APCO").  WI-NENA/WI-APCO shall have the authority to interpret and enforce these Rules and Regulations. All matters not covered by these regulations are subject to the decision of WI-NENA/WI-APCO. All decisions so made shall be binding on all parties. The exhibitor or its representative who fails to observe these conditions or contract may be excluded from the Exhibition without refund.


Eligible Exhibits


WI-NENA/WI-APCO has the sole right to determine the eligibility of any company or product for inclusion in the 2017 WI-NENA/WI-APCO Exhibition.


Assignment of Exhibit Space

Booth location will be assigned by WI-NENA/WI-APCO based upon:


1.   Exhibitor will be allocated space as available; however, WI-NENA/WI-APCO will follow the general rule of “first-come, first-served”. No Exhibitor may assign or sublet the whole or any part of the allotted space; one company per booth unless previously approved by WI-NENA/WI-APCO. Final allocation of exhibit space will be made by WI-NENA/WI-APCO. WI-NENA/WI-APCO reserves the right to relocate exhibit areas for the benefit of the Exhibitor or the betterment of the WI-NENA/WI-APCO Exhibition.



In the event the Exhibitor cancels all or part of the exhibit space contracted hereunder, the following provisions shall apply:


1.   If written notice or cancellation for partial and/or bulk booth space is received by WI-NENA/WI-APCO prior to August 24, 2015, the Exhibitor shall pay a cancellation fee equal to fifty percent (50%) of the cancelled exhibit space rental fee.

2.   If written notice of cancellation for partial and/or bulk booth space is received by WI-NENA/WI-APCO after August 24, 2015, the Exhibitor shall pay a cancellation fee equal to the full one-hundred percent (100%) cancelled exhibit space rental fee. This cancellation policy includes reduction in booth space.

3.   Exhibit space must be paid in full when due (September 15, 2015) per this contract. If total cost of such booth space is not paid in full when due, WI-NENA/WI-APCO has the right to cancel such space. This does not relieve the Exhibitor of the obligation to pay the cancellation fee according to (1) and (2) above.

4.   Any refunds due to the Exhibitor under this cancellation policy will be paid within 90 days after the ending of this exhibition.

5.   WI-NENA/WI-APCO reserves the right to exclude any Exhibitor who may have any outstanding debt to WI-NENA/WI-APCO.
