Supplier Booth Regulations

Travel South USA is a "brochures only" International Showcase. We strictly enforce no banners, backdrops, pop-ups, exhibits, posters, electrical, audio visuals or similar decorations from being permitted in the booth. No table-top displays or custom draperies (including table) may be used and will be cited for removal if in violation. You may bring a laptop computer or tablet. (Please note that electricity is not provided in the Supplier booths but can be obtained through the hotel.) In most cases, laptops and tablets can be adequately charged during breaks and between Marketplace sessions so electricity is not essential in the booth.)


Dress

Dress for the International Showcase Marketplace floor is professional business attire. Comfortable shoes are a necessity! The attire for evening events is casual.


Smoking

Smoking is prohibited in the Francis Marion Hotel and on the International Showcase floor and at all functions. There will be plenty of chances to step outside for a break if need be.
