Northeast Acquirers Association
2019 Annual Conference
Code of Conduct
Badges
Badges must be worn at all NEAA sponsored events during the conference.

Exhibitor (Vendor) Defined
An Exhibitor is defined as any person(s) or company that solicits another NEAA attendee to sell their product. Exhibitors can be identified by the color of their name badge. Only exhibitors may solicit business while the conference is in session. Please report any solicitation by a non-exhibitor to a Board Member immediately.

All exhibitors must be registered and paid before participating in the conference. Any person(s) or company that has attended a previous NEAA Conference as an exhibitor will be recognized as an exhibitor for the current and future events. Any person(s) or company recognized as an exhibitor may not register as an attendee.

Attendee Defined
An attendee is defined as any person(s) or company that seeks to sell a product or service, or otherwise solicit business, from a bankcard merchant. In addition, an attendee seeks information from, or resells the products of, the registered vendors. An attendee may also be a technical support or customer support representative of a business as long as their main job is to support their merchants. Attendees can be identified by the color of their name badge.

All attendees must be registered and paid before participating in the conference. We understand there may be person(s) or company(ies) that meet both definitions. Any person(s) wearing an attendee name badge are prohibited from soliciting business from other attendees during open conference hours. Please report any violation to a Board Member immediately.

Any person(s) reported for violating this prohibition will be removed from the conference and barred from attending future conferences.

Industry Expert Defined
An Industry Expert is defined as Senior, Executive, Sales or Technical Management of an ISO, Bank, Card Processing or Issuing company, Investment firm, Financial Services company, Lending company, Marketing company, Manufacturing company, Attorneys, Regulatory and Compliance companies, Software companies, POS companies, previous Exhibitor (Vendor) who is not exhibiting at a table and others deemed not applicable as an "Attendee" per an Executive Member of the NEAA Board.

Suitcasing by any of the above, i.e. gaining access to the event to solicit business in the aisles or other public spaces used for the conference is not permitted. This practice skirts the support of the vendor/exhibitors and sponsors who have contributed time and money to exhibit at the conference. Anyone who is observed to be acting as an exhibitor/vendor and soliciting business, booking meetings in the public spaces or handing out information on their business who is not a registered vendor will be asked to leave immediately. Any Hospitality suites and usage of Meeting Rooms must be approved prior to the event by the NEAA Executive Board.

Dress Code
Dress code for all events during the conference is business casual.
