Floor Plan Modifications

Symposium Management reserves the right to modify the floor plan to accommodate space sales and/or avoid conflict to relocate exhibit booth as necessary after consultation with exhibitors who are affected by the modification. Every effort to consider location of competitors and accommodate special requests will be made, but cannot be guaranteed.
 

Inability to Hold Symposium
