Suitcasing Policy

National Parking Association (NPA) greatly appreciates the support of our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors.

To protect the investment they make in our events and conferences, NPA has adopted a zero tolerance Suitcasing Policy.

Any NPA Convention & Expo attendee (non-exhibitor) who is observed soliciting business in the trade show aisles will be asked to forfeit their badge and leave the show floor immediately.

Violators of these policies will be ejected from the show and charged the single-booth rate ($4,999 member/$5,999 nonmember), which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future NPA conference or other event.

Please report any violation you observe to show management.


Definition of “Suitcasing”

Suitcasing at the NPA Convention & Expo is defined as any activity by one who has not paid an exhibition fee (i.e., purchased a booth) where the activity is designed to solicit or sell products or services to other exhibitors or attendees without authorization by NPA to engage in such solicitation. Suitcasing can occur by those who are registered as attendees or by parties misrepresenting their business or entity relationship to NPA.
