First Aid


First aid stations are located on the third floor, Main Lobby and Arena. The first aid station in the Main/Grand Lobby is centrally located and will be open with a nurse available throughout the event. This map shows the first aid stations and AED locations in the Anaheim Convention Center.

Food and Beverage Dispensing

Refer to Catering under Official Service Contractors. Exhibitors wishing to hand out food and beverage samples should contact ARAMARK at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Insurance


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 2013. 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: All lighting changes requested through the Anaheim Convention Center will incur a fee, and exhibitors will be responsible for changes to lighting. All requests must be approved by Exhibition Management and the Anaheim 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 impact 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.

Parking


The Anaheim Convention Center parking facility includes unlimited in and out privileges through the West Street entrance (exhibitors must present their daily paid parking receipts and exhibitor badges to be granted re-entry). Additional details, along with a Parking Guide, can be found in the Parking Lot Regulations.

Public Space


Souvenirs and literature can only be handed out from within the confines of exhibitors' booths. Passing out promotional material or literature in the aisles, outside the convention center, or public areas is prohibited. Also, posting signs anywhere other than within the confines of exhibitors' booths is prohibited.

Security


SIGGRAPH 2013 will provide perimeter badge checkers for the exhibit hall and public areas of the convention center. For special in-booth security, refer to the Booth Security Order Form.

Selling on the Exhibit Floor


Exhibitors at SIGGRAPH 2013 may sell their products directly to attendees from their booths on the show floor. SIGGRAPH Exhibition Management shall have control over the unsightliness of signs posting prices, notices of sales, etc. Review the California Seller’s Permit Application for further information.

Synchronization Licenses


If copyrighted musical compositions included in a film or video are performed at your booth, you are required to secure a synchronization license, which permits the inclusion of the music in the film or video. Synchronization licenses generally are issued by the music publishers of the individual composition. Find this information on the compact disc recording of the composition, or on the printed sheet music. Please contact the appropriate music publisher to secure the synchronization license. Alternatively, you may wish to contact an agency that is used by some music publishers to license synchronization rights. One such agency is:
