Terms and Conditions - Acknowledgement & Agreement
By registering for the Southern Automotive Conference (SAC), you acknowledge and agree to abide by the following terms and conditions:
To allow the Alabama Automotive Manufacturers Association (AAMA), and any of its affiliates, at their sole discretion, to reproduce your photo or likeness, or to use any video in which you appear, in any AAMA, SAC, or affiliated publications including the Southern Automotive Alliance Magazine, websites, or any other publication or posting.
Due to our need to fund certain expenses in advance, your payment is non-cancellable, and no refunds are possible. However, substitutions are allowed.
All registrations can only be applied to the current event, and cannot be applied to future registrations for any AAMA event nor to membership fees.
To allow AAMA, in its sole discretion, to release your name, company, and contact information to sponsors of the SAC, in advance, during, and following the event.
Policy on Suitcasing, Outboarding and Competitive Events. In order to protect our valued exhibitors and their investment in attending the SAC, our rules strictly prohibit “suitcasing” or “outboarding” by individuals, attendees or companies who transact business at the SAC or at official SAC hotel(s), who have not purchased an exhibit booth. By suitcasing or outboarding the show, an individual, attendee or company gains an unfair competitive advantage over SAC exhibitors that have invested money and other resources to exhibit. SAC rules also prohibit any individuals, attendees or companies from scheduling an event that competes with an official event sanctioned and publicized by SAC. “Competitive events” seek to draw conference attendees away from an official event sanctioned by SAC and are therefore detrimental to the success of the official event, and the investment by SAC sponsors. “Suitcasing” refers to those non-exhibiting companies or persons who go to the SAC as an attendee, but “work the aisles” from their suitcase/briefcase and solicit business in the aisles or lobby area. “Outboarding” refers to non-exhibiting companies that set up exhibits or events at off-site locations, hotel hospitality suites, or restaurants, and encourage SAC attendees to leave the conference and spend time with them. “Competitive Events” are any events that compete for conference attendees by being scheduled during the same or overlapping timeframe as an official event scheduled by SAC, whether the event is educational, an exhibition, or a social event. Those found to be in noncompliance with this policy may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Alabama Automotive Manufacturers Association (AAMA), be asked to leave the SAC, and may no longer be welcomed at, or allowed to attend, exhibit, or sponsor, at any future SAC events.
To abide by any noise restriction requests made of you during the event. This will apply primarily while stage presentations are underway, during which time Exhibitors and others in the Exhibitor area will be asked to be quiet out of respect for our speakers and those listening to them.
To produce photo identification if requested by AAMA and its agents and appointees, and to allow such individuals, at their sole discretion, to search any items you bring into the event area.
Failure to abide by any of these terms and conditions may result in your being asked to leave the event. Thank you for understanding.
