Hospitality Guidelines for Private Functions
Out of respect for our sponsors and activities organized by ILMA, the ILMA Board of Directors promotes the following hospitality guidelines:
Excluding the tabletop displays in ILMA Base Camp, private signs, sales displays and distribution of sales literature in public areas are not allowed.
Hospitality suites and private entertaining may not conflict with scheduled business or social functions open to all registered meeting participants.
ILMA asks that companies not schedule meetings during the Opening General Session (Monday, October 3 from 9:45 – 11:15 am) so that all may attend this important community event.
Companies hosting hospitality suites or private functions for groups of 10 or more must inform ILMA of the planned event by September 31, 2022.
For groups of 10 or more, buses or other transportation cannot depart before 7:15 pm on Saturday and Sunday, October 1st and 2nd.
ILMA reserves the right to require that companies move their entertainment time if there is a conflict with these guidelines.
