You may not solicit business from other attendees during MDMC, including but not limited to: distributing marketing materials; hosting demonstrations of any product or service (either scheduled or unscheduled) for more than one person; setting up marketing materials, such as signage, which includes wearing signs or holding signs; distributing samples; sitting at tables for the express purpose of marketing to conference attendees; offering specials to those attending MDMC; disrupting the traffic flow of other MDMC attendees in an attempt to market goods or services. You may not coordinate on-location gatherings that involve distribution of samples, raffles, or other incentives.

If you violate this provision, MDMC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove your badge and ban your re-entry to MDMC, with no refund due to you.

In some limited exceptions, MDMC may grant approval for certain marketing activities. You must have written approval available for inspection by a member of the MDMC staff at all times while engaging in a pre-approved promotional activity.
