Media Guidelines for Exhibitors
Exhibitors are welcome to provide press materials for display in a designated exhibitor area of the ACG 2018 Press Room subject to the following guidelines:
- All Exhibitor press materials must be on letterhead from the sponsoring company or organization and inside a folder clearly identified as from the company or organization.
- While prior approval of Exhibitor press materials is not required, Exhibitor press materials should not be written in such a way that a reader might mistake the source as ACG. All Exhibitor releases displayed in the ACG 2018 Press Room should make absolutely clear the source of the release, and while they may convey that the information was presented at ACG 2018, in no way should the release imply that ACG endorses a particular study or supports the conclusions drawn in any Exhibitor press materials. ACG reserves the right to remove from the Press Room any Exhibitor press materials in violation of this guideline.
- Exhibitors releasing information to the media based on research presented at ACG 2018 or events at ACG 2018 should honor the ACG 2018 embargo.
Photography and Videotaping
Exhibitors, Attendees, Guests and Media are strictly prohibited from taking video or audio recording of the Exhibit Hall or any educational session or event of the meeting for publication, rebroadcast or placement on a non-ACG website or print publication without prior written permission from the ACG. Still photography is permitted only for personal, non-commercial purposes, including social media. For more information, email email@example.com. Media should email ACG Media Staff.
Outside Press Conferences
Press conferences at ACG 2018 sponsored by exhibitors or groups other than ACG are outside press conferences. The College requests that no group schedule a press conference at the same time as any ACG-sponsored Media Briefings. Groups holding outside press conferences are responsible for securing their own space, but are welcome to coordinate with ACG VP of Meetings and Exhibitions Elaine McCubbin to try to identify an appropriate venue. As a courtesy, please notify ACG of plans to hold a press conference at ACG 2018 by either calling the ACG Office at 301-263-9000 or by emailing ACG Media Staff.
