    Welcome to the Aviation Networking Forum (ANF).  The following information is to serve as a guideline for your participation during this venue.  
     

    1.  Registration for the ANF is ONLINE ONLY at http://www.acpc.com.  All companies requesting a booth for  participation in the ANF, must have at least one paid attendee, from the company, registered for the ACPC Conference, before signing up for an ANF Booth.  Please note booth space is limited and is assigned on a first come, first served basis and after verification of payment for the conference and ANF booth space. Payment for the conference and for the ANF is by credit card only.  Deadline to register for the ANF is Friday, July 6, 2018 as long as this venue has not sold out prior to this date.

     

    2. Once registered for the conference, a registration acknowledgement confirmation number will be generated.  This confirmation number will be your access code to register for the ANF.  When you have completed the ANF registration, an acknowledgement ANF confirmation number will be generated.  The electronic acknowledgement will date and time stamp each registration.  This ANF acknowledgement confirmation number will determine only the assignment order of your booth.  This is NOT your booth number.

      

    3.  Booth locations will be numbered and assigned as your confirmed registration and payment is received.  Only one booth per company is allowed and the ACPC will not entertain any requests for combined booths or contiguous locations for sister companies, affiliated companies or wholly owned subsidiaries.

      

    4.  Cost for booth space is $750.00 per booth.  Electricity must be ordered directly through the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes Hotel.  Ordering electric is very costly and we suggest that companies bring an extra battery or power source that will hold a charge for the duration of the ANF.

      

    5.  The ANF is intended to provide networking opportunities to all registered participants.  It is not a convention or trade show.  Participants will be provided with a 6’ x 8’ booth, 1 standard 6’L x 24” W x 30” H table, 2 side chairs, 1 wastebasket and an ID sign.  Booths and/or freestanding displays are not allowed.  All displays, signs, demonstrations, sales activities, etc., must be contained to the top of the table space provided.  Display material is limited to 30” in height from the top of the table.  No posters or displays can be placed on the floor around the table or on the provided chairs.  Company name signs will be provided by the ANF and will be placed on the draping in the back of each space.  Company signage, floor displays, booths or other free standing apparatus will not be permitted.  A standard floor length trade shows table covering or table runners are permitted.  Please note that a standard table measures 6’L x 24”W x 30”H.  Please be respectful of your fellow suppliers in keeping a level playing field and not being a distraction to others.
