All who attend, exhibit, and participate in the PCA23 Show in any capacity will be held to the highest standards of personal and professional conduct. As such, all participants and guests agree you will not disrupt the activities of others, disturb or harass other attendees, staff or Show attendees, precipitate the intervention of security or public law enforcement, or in any other way disrupt the smooth operation of the Show.
PCA reserves the right to determine in its sole judgement when an attendee or representative of an attendee has violated the standards of conduct, and take any action deemed necessary to protect the safety of Show attendees and the public, up to and including immediate termination of trade show privileges, expulsion from the Facility, and barring the attendee or company from participating in future PCA events.
PCA has entered into a contract with the Venetian Resort Las Vegas for the trade show. These contracts specify designated smoking areas and times that Show Management, Exhibitors, Attendees and all other members or non-members associated with the Show must adhere to in order to be in compliance with these contracts. This is a serious issue that is important in order to be able to host future trade shows, not only in Las Vegas, but throughout the country.
Smoking at the PCA trade show is only allowed in the designated PCA convention and meeting areas during trade show hours.
Smoking is strictly prohibited in the following restricted areas:
• Common areas
• Meeting Rooms
• Any non-smoking areas as designated by the Venetian/Palazzo Sands Expo & Convention Center
Attendees and participants of the PCA23 Trade Show understand that if anyone who may be associated with, or a representative of an attending company, is caught smoking outside of the specified times and locations or in the restricted areas, that company may be fined $7,500, removed from the Show and banned from all future shows. Additionally, PCA membership may be suspended until the fine is paid in full.
Attendees, exhibitors and all representatives agree not to disturb the activities of others in attendance, especially where related to the consumption of alcohol.
All guests of the PCA23 Trade Show are expected to drink responsibly and ensure they have a safe, responsible means of transportation before leaving the facility. Any guest who is intoxicated before entering the event may be denied entry to the facility. Any guest found intoxicated within the event and causing a disturbance, as determined by management, will be asked to leave the facility without refund and may be subject to further consequences.
The possession, smoking or consumption of marijuana is NOT allowed at PCA23. Violators will be trespassed from the show and not allowed to return.
The following exemptions to display of CBD products are allowable by the Sands Expo Convention Center and PCA. CBD or Cannabidiol is defined as a non-intoxicating product found in cannabis and hemp and is often used to help alleviate pain and other symptoms. With the use of CBD becoming more widely legal and available, PCA agrees to allow exhibitors to display and place orders for products containing CBD with a few stipulations. Furthermore, PCA will adhere to any changes in state, local or federal government laws as well as the policies as brought forth by the Sands Expo Convention Center regarding the display and ordering of CBD. Exhibitors may display packaging and marketing materials for CBD products with less than 0.3% THC (“CBD Products”) during the Event.
