Solicitors not Registering as Exhibitors
The SDABA and SDGFA host the Ag Expo as a convenience for companies wishing to solicit business. Every individual or firm that engages in solicitation or recruiting during Ag Expo must register as an exhibitor and pay an exhibitor fee. Solicitation and recruiting are defined as conducting any of the following activities anywhere on the conference hotel property, lobby, hallways, and meeting rooms or in the exhibit hall:
Distributing literature, brochures, corporate name/logo items or electronic media promoting a company, or its products or services.
Wearing or carrying any button, badge or sign promoting a company, or its products or services (logo apparel is normally acceptable but the Ag Expo Committee reserves the right to determine acceptability).
Verbally prospecting for buyers of a company's products or services; verbally making a sales pitch or proposal that promotes a company, its products or services.
It is the policy of Ag Expo to treat a company as an exhibitor if they have ever been an exhibitor at a previous Ag Expo's. Other companies will be considered exhibitors by the nature of their business, their services and their clientele. The Ag Expo Committee reserves the right to make the final determination as to who qualifies as an exhibitor and will be assessed exhibitor fees.
