Exhibitor Policies

Liability

Neither Texas Society of Architects (TxA) nor any officer or staff member thereof will be liable for any personal injury or damage to any and all persons or property caused by the exhibitor, his/her agents, representatives, or employees. The exhibitor indemnifies and agrees to hold harmless TxA, its members, officers, directors, and employees against any and all liability arising from any and all damage to property or personal injury caused by an exhibitor or his/her agents, employees, or other representatives.

 Exhibit Hall Access and Booth Assembly.

Exhibiting companies may allow representatives to assemble their allotted exhibit space prior to the Design Expo opening to attendees. Representatives must check-in with TxA representatives before assembling their booth. During the designated Design Expo days, booth representatives must have a conference badge to access the exhibit hall. Each 10’ X 10’ space will receive four (4) complimentary exhibitor badges. Additional booth personnel that exceed the complimentary allotment require additional registration fees.

Booths must remain intact until 5:00 PM on the final day of the Design Expo. Exhibitor representatives are not allowed to deconstruct their booth until after the close of the Design Expo and all conference attendees have exited the exhibit hall.

Exhibit Cancellation

After the deposit or final payment is received, the following schedule applies on cancelled exhibit space:

If the date of cancellation is between June 1, 2022, and June 30, 2022, the exhibitor will forfeit 30% of the payment; between July 1, 2022 and July 31, 2022, the exhibitor will forfeit 60%; on or after August 1, 2022, the exhibitor forfeits 100% of the payment. All cancellation requests must be submitted to the Texas Society of Architects office in writing and must contain a brief explanation for the cancellation.

Third Party Vendors

We do not contract with third parties to sell its attendee or member data. Be careful of companies emailing and posing as vendors for our event. Some scams include housing, mailing lists, directory listings, and onsite services. TxA never sells attendee lists.

“Spending time at Design Expo was exceptional, both connecting to old friends and relating to new product lines for our upcoming builds. The TxA trade show allows us to personally meet and shake hands with our new suppliers.”
