Exhibitors are urged to provide insurance coverage protecting against damage, loss, or theft. Contact your insurance company or agent and request that this type of coverage be made available to you during SIGGRAPH 2015. The cost is low when added as a rider to your current policy.
Lighting in the Exhibit Hall
Lighting levels in the exhibition will be low and will be set during the installation period. If you require a particular amount of light, you will want to supply your own lighting in the event that the overhead lighting is not sufficient, or plan to obstruct the light if your presentation is light sensitive. Depending on the overhead lighting pattern at the convention center, you may or may not have direct overhead lights. If you require less lighting above your booth, you may request that the lights be turned out directly above your booth.
NOTE: Some lighting changes will incur a fee, and exhibitors will be responsible for changes to lighting. All requests must be approved by Exhibition Management and the Los Angeles Convention Center before any lights are turned off. Requests for turning off additional lights will only be approved if the decreased lighting will not significantly affect lighting of the aisles or other booths. Please have an alternate plan for your exhibit in the event that additional lights cannot be removed over your booth or if you require more light than the low lighting levels provide.
