To exhibit at the member rate, your membership dues for HAI fiscal year 2017–18, equal to the annual dues level appropriate for your organization, must be received before or at the time space applications are received.
The deadline to cancel or reduce space and receive a partial refund is December 1, 2017. For details, see the Important Deadlines page or No. 12 of the Rules and Regulations. Cancellations or reductions of space may result in booth relocations.
An exhibit hall must be laid out so as to facilitate the flow of traffic of attendees and to provide an overall balance to the hall, while addressing the locations of utility ports, columns, fire marshal regulations, facility move-in/out door sizes and locations, and other restrictions. HAI reserves the right to assign space subject to these parameters and to relocate a booth, should unforeseen circumstances arise.
HAI has identified four HAI HELI-EXPO anchor exhibitors: Airbus, Bell Helicopter, Leonardo, and Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company. Each of these companies’ exhibits has continuously exceeded 10,000 sq. ft. on an annual basis for many years. Therefore, these four companies will be placed first within the exhibit hall assignments, on a yearly rotation schedule. To qualify for future anchor designation, a company’s exhibit space must exceed 10,000 sq. ft. for a minimum of two consecutive years.
The remainder of HAI HELI-EXPO booth assignments are determined by two separate lotteries: Lottery 1 and Lottery 2. HAI uses these lotteries to ensure that booths are equitably assigned among exhibitors.
Outside of the lottery guidelines stated below, the date on which your application is received by HAI holds no bearing on your booth placement. Once you are ranked by the lottery, your booth preference requests and other details of location preference are given full consideration, subject to your position in the lottery.
Along with your application for space, HAI must receive your payment for you to be eligible to participate in either lottery, as well as the after-lottery assignments.
Confirmation of space assignments for Lottery 1 will be sent to the exhibitor contact by August 11, 2017. Confirmation of space assignments for Lottery 2 will be sent to the exhibitor contact by September 29, 2017. All other confirmations will be forwarded as quickly as possible following booth assignment.
Lottery 1 consists of four stages and is open only to HAI HELI-EXPO 2017 exhibitors. To be considered for Lottery 1, applications with payment must be submitted by June 23, 2017. In all stages, exhibiting companies are treated equally, and the placement sequence is determined randomly:
Lottery 2 is open to any exhibiting company (including those that have not previously exhibited) that returns the application with payment by August 25, 2017. This lottery consists of three stages:
All drawings are completely random, with no exhibitor given priority for any reason.
Applications for space received after August 25, 2017, will be considered for placement on the floor after all Lottery 2 exhibitors have been placed. Such applications will be assigned space in the order they are received. Applications for space must be received by December 22, 2017, for companies to be included in the Program & Exhibit Guide.
