The OAHP may withhold or withdraw permission to distribute souvenirs, advertising materials or other items it considers objectionable at its sole discretion.
Reassignment, subletting or sharing any part of the allocated booth space is strictly prohibited. Exhibitors who fail to observe these conditions of contract, or who, in the opinion of the officials of the Ohio Association of Health Plans, conduct themselves unethically or unprofessionally will be dismissed from the meeting without refund.
Payment may be made by check or credit card payable to OAHP and is requested within 45 days of registration date.

Cancellation or Withdrawal
All cancellations must be received in writing to the OAHP by March 31, 2017 to receive a refund and approval of cancellation. Cancellations made on or before March 31, 2017 will be subject to OAHP retaining an amount equal to 50% of the total exhibit fee even if OAHP is able to resell the space. No cancellations will be accepted, or refunds issued after March 31, 2017 or once logos have been utilized on any promotional materials or on the OAHP website. Refunds will not be made for no-shows.
The assignment and the confirmation of exhibit space will be made in the order in which requests and payments are received in the OAHP office. The receipt of the registration form will establish the assignment date. Any opportunities not confirmed will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. In cases where the sponsorship reservations are received simultaneously, preference will be given to OAHP members. OAHP reserves the right to review any sponsorship registration/contract for appropriateness for our audience and support of our conference objectives. Final booth assignments, exhibit hall floor plan, and an exhibit show kit including details of the official Show Decorator will be forwarded to exhibitors within 60 days of the conference dates.
Every effort will be made to maintain the general configuration of the floor plan for this conference. However, OAHP reserves the right to modify the plan, if necessary, as determined solely by OAHP. For liability reasons and to insure the highest level of safety, all electrical connections and/or power requirements performed must be contracted through OAHP. One electrical outlet power strip will be provided to each exhibit space upon advance request.
