  • Character of Exhibit guidelines have been updated to better address the professional and multicultural audience that SPE attracts. SPE reserves the right to prohibit an exhibit or part of an exhibit, including promotional materials and graphics that in its judgment could be discriminatory.  SPE may caution or eject booth personnel that in dress or behavior it feels is infringing on cultural or professional standards. View the complete Character of Exhibit guidelines from the SPE Exhibit Regulations, Section 7.
