Will IBEX take place September 29 – October 1, 2020?

Yes, we are moving ahead with plans for IBEX 2020. We are developing new guidelines to implement on-site, along with the Tampa Convention Center and our show vendors, to maintain safe distancing and increase sanitation practices during the show.

IBEX will open on schedule and run from Tuesday, September 29 – October 1, 2020 at the Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, Florida USA. The Pre-Show Education Sessions will be held on Monday, September 28. We will continue to monitor developments with the pandemic and keep the IBEX community informed as new information is available.

Will The Show Make Changes To Adapt To The Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic?

Yes, Show Management is staying up-to-date on the current pandemic and will adhere to any local, state, or federal guidelines. We are also developing new guidelines with the Tampa Convention Center and our show vendors to implement on-site to maintain safe distancing and increased sanitation practices during the show. This is an ongoing and ever-changing issue and we will continue to plan accordingly.  Our new safety & sanitation policies and plan will be shared when ready.

Is Registration Currently Open?

IBEX registration is scheduled to open for exhibitors in early June.  You will receive an email letting you know when it is open and that it’s time to register your booth staff.

How Will I Know If The Show is Cancelled?

All exhibitors will be notified via email in the event of a show cancellation.

What Happens to Booth & Sponsorship Paid Fees If The Show Is Cancelled?

If IBEX 2020 were forced to cancel, we would apply your booth and/or sponsorship payments for IBEX 2020 to IBEX 2021.  This automatic renewal would confirm your current booth location, and or, place your company in line based on seniority and points if we needed to re-allocate the floor plan.  If you do not wish to have your booth & sponsorship payments applied to IBEX 2021, exhibitors are entitled to the return of the rental fee for the exhibit space, less the pro rata share allocable to the exhibit space of the expenses incurred by IBEX, LLC in connection with the exhibition.

What Is the Exhibit Space Contract Cancellation Policy?

As outlined in the 2020 Exhibit Space Contract, the IBEX Exhibit Space Contract cancellation is as follows:

Cancellation Policy:

Exhibitor may cancel his reserved space assignment by written notice to IBEX, LLC, effective upon IBEX, LLC’s receipt of such written notice. If Exhibitor fails to make payments due here under on the date or dates specified, then IBEX, LLC may cancel this agreement or change Exhibitor’s space assignment, at IBEX, LLC’s sole discretion and without further notice. IBEX, LLC may close an exhibit and cancel this agreement at any time for failure of Exhibitor or any of its officers, agents, employees, or other representatives to perform, observe, or comply with any term or condition set forth herein or stipulated in the Exhibitor Service Manual. In such event, IBEX, LLC may immediately remove Exhibitor’s display at the Exhibitor’s sole expense if Exhibitor fails to do so, and IBEX, LLC may re-let the space to others. If a reserved space assignment is canceled, voluntarily or involuntarily, for any reason, or if Exhibitor for any reason shall be unable to exhibit at the Show, Exhibitor shall not be entitled to a refund of any portion of exhibit fees paid and shall be liable for all exhibit fees accrued and unpaid to the effective date of cancellation or termination.

a) A contract cancellation penalty representing all or a portion of the total contract price will be assessed according to the following formula:

25% contract penalty- Completion of application to April 6, 2020

75% contract penalty – April 7, 2020 to July 6, 2020

100% July 7, 2020 to show set up.

b) For all exhibitors requesting a space reduction, IBEX, LLC reserves the right to relocate the exhibit or reconfigure it as determined by IBEX, LLC.
