On behalf of the GLTE Experience Team, we present our Suitcasing Policy at the Great Lakes Trade Exposition:
• Suitcasing is the act in which unauthorized individuals or companies attempt to solicit business at GLTE on the trade show floor without purchasing a booth. The unauthorized individuals may have registered as show attendees or be sharing booth space with companies who are registered as legitimate exhibitors.
• Suitcasing is not permitted at GLTE on the trade show floor. This policy includes attendees trying to solicit business for themselves, as well as exhibitors who are letting non-registered companies share their booth space. All exhibiting companies must be contracted with and through show management. All companies that wish to exhibit at GLTE should purchase a booth space.
• Any attendee who is observed to be soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces on the trade show floor, in another company’s booth, or in violation of any portion of the Show Guidelines, will be asked to leave immediately. Please report any violations you observe to Show Management. Please call Amy Upton at (517) 331-8896 or flag down any MNLA team member as we walk the show floor.
• Please try to get the business card of the individual who is suitcasing. Show Management will do our best to find the “suitcasers” and remove them from the building.
