Show Rules

ICAST is open only to qualified members of the trade. All attendees must be badged for the duration of the show.

Exhibitors and attendees must be in compliance with local, state and federal laws and any valid federal or state court order.

Exhibitors and attendees must refrain from any conduct that would be viewed as detrimental or disruptive to the operation of the show, including, but not limited to: inappropriate dress, lascivious behavior, excessive noise, unauthorized use of another exhibi­tor’s product or product concepts or any other activity that the American Sportfishing Association (ASA) determines to be unacceptable or unethical.

ASA reserves the right to determine whether the character and/or attire of booth personnel is accept­able and in keeping with the best interests of other attendees and/or ICAST.

Orders may only be taken within the exhibitor’s booths. Retail sales are prohibited during the show.

Unless promotional materials are included in an ASA/ICAST sponsorship program, exhibitors and/or attendees are not permitted to place promotional materials outside their booth or on the show floor.

Any attendee who is observed to be suitcasing – soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, in another company’s booth, or in violation of any portion of ASA’s rules and regulations – will be asked to leave immediately and will forfeit his or her badge. Additional penalties may be applied.

Any company that is not an official exhibitor that hosts an exhibit or other function at a non-official show venue is in violation of show rules and may lose priority points, seniority and/or the ability to exhibit at ICAST.

Only credentialed photographers and videographers (Media Editorial badge) are permitted to film during the show. All photography and videography must take place in designated areas or within an exhibitor’s booth. Prior consent is required.
