Exhibiting companies are encouraged to protect their investment and report any violations to EPIC management. Attendees observed soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, or in another company’s booth will be ejected and removed from the event and may be banned from future events in EPIC’s sole and absolute discretion.

All EPIC badges are the property of EPIC and must be returned to EPIC upon request.
