2018 LAKE HAVASU BOAT SHOW EXHIBITOR GUIDELINES AND POLICIES
(please note -- any exhibitor planning to include a box trailer, tilt trailer, RV, large truck, media screen, etc, inside its designated exhibit space, MUST CONSULT with show management regarding the placement of that vehicle prior to, or during move-in. It is show management's intent to avoid placement of such vehicles that might block or otherwise hinder the visibility of other adjacent exhibitors.)
Guidelines for Boat Manufacturer Exhibitors
Boat manufacturers (selling manufacturer direct without a retail dealer network) may only display “for sale” boats (new or previously owned) they manufacture. No other make or brand of boat is allowed to be displayed “for sale” unless that boat manufacturer also has an existing “dealer” agreement in place to represent another brand/line of boats. If the boat manufacturer does not have a Lake Havasu City place of business, it may not display “for sale” a foreign brand of boat if it is already being exhibited by a Lake Havasu City marine dealer. All sales at the boat show must be through the manufacturer (state of origin and local regulations pertain), and a valid Lake Havasu City business license must be in force. If a manufacturer does not have an Arizona DMV RV/trailer license, the RV or trailer must be plainly marked, “For Display Purposes Only.” ). It is imperative that a manufacturer list all products it intends to offer for sale or display at the Boat Show on the original space application. Products not listed by brand and model on the space application may be denied display/for sale privileges at the Boat Show. Show management reserves the right to deny exhibiting privileges to any manufacturer (Lake Havasu City based or not) who in the judgment of show management is conducting itself in a manner that presents unfair competition to others in the show.
Guidelines for Marine/Retail Dealer Exhibitors
Lake Havasu City marine dealers will be given first opportunity to exhibit (commitment deadline is January 19, 2018). Requests for exhibit space from dealers located outside of Lake Havasu City will not be granted until such time that the application has been reviewed and voted upon by the Lake Havasu Marine Association Board of Directors who will decide whether the admittance of that dealer does, or does not, constitute a conflict of interest and potentially unfair competition to local dealerships. There shall be no duplicate brands of new boats displayed “for sale” at the boat show by separate dealers. An exhibitor may, however, display boats of a duplicate brand “not for sale” in order to show specific products and services (engines, drives, accessories, rigging, installation, etc.) it offers to the public “for sale.” Dealers may display new and/or used boats “for sale”. In order to be eligible to participate in the Boat Show, dealers must have the following documentation in place: A) an Arizona DOT license for trailer sales. B) An Arizona G&F dealer license. C) A Lake Havasu City business license. D) Sales tax license from the State of Arizona. E) Documentation indicating that the dealer has exclusive distribution/sales rights to their boat brands to be displayed at the boat show in the Lake Havasu area (dealer of record). F) Documentation from the motor manufacturer(s) that are installed or accompanying the boat models offered indicating a service agreement to sell or "rig" and service said motors. G) Dealers mush have a physical place of business, not a Post Office Box. Normally space applications are reviewed at regularly scheduled monthly LHMA Board of Directors meetings. Urgent issues can sometimes be accommodated on a special 5-day notice. If a dealer does not have a valid Arizona DMV RV/trailer license, the RV or trailer must be plainly marked, “For Display Purposes Only." It is imperative that a dealer/retailer list all products by brand and model it intends to offer for sale or display at the Boat Show on the original space application. Products not listed on the space application may be denied display/for sale privileges at the Boat Show. Show management and/or the Lake Havasu Marine Association reserves the right to deny exhibiting privileges to any dealer (Lake Havasu City based or not) who in the judgment of show management and/or the LHMA is conducting itself in a manner that presents unfair competition to others in the show.
Guidelines for Vendors/Booth Exhibitors
Vendors/booth exhibitors selling name brand merchandise must have a distributor agreement in place with the manufacturer of that product. There shall be no duplicate name brand products “for sale” at the boat show by separate dealers. All sales at the boat show must be through the vendor/booth exhibitor, and a valid Lake Havasu City business license, annual or temporary, must be in force. ). It is imperative that a booth/vendor list all products it intends to offer for sale or display at the Boat Show on the original space application. Products not listed by brand/model on the space application may be denied display/for sale privileges at the Boat Show. Show management reserves the right to deny exhibiting privileges to any vendor/booth exhibitor (Lake Havasu City based or not) who in the judgment of show management is conducting itself in a manner that presents unfair competition to others in the show.
ADDITIONAL BOAT SHOW POLICIES – PLEASE READ
NOISE LEVELS -- Please keep sound at a level that allows neighboring exhibits to be able to conduct business. We will ask you to turn down or turn off any sound system/amplifier that is bothering your neighbors. Failure to do so will result in loss of power from your exhibit. Noise makers (air horns, bull horns, sirens, etc) are not permitted.
SECURITY -- Show management is responsible for providing security coverage beginning at the official, published move-in time and ending at the official, published move-out time. Exhibitors are responsible for security of their booth and any loss or damage to their property during official move-in hours, moveout hours and show hours, including 1 hour prior to show opening and ½ hour after show closing. The Sand-Water-RV Expo assumes no liability for any loss, damage, or injury to any property of the exhibitor or to any of its officers, agents, employees, or contractor, whenever attributed to accident, fire, or any other cause whatsoever.

Do not leave your booth unattended at any time! AV equipment, cash registers, and product should be placed under a table or in a box. ⊥ Cover your tables and products after move-in and after show hours by using a sheet or something similar. The sheet can be secured with bungee cords or duct tape. Do not indicate the contents on the outside of your boxes and crates. These items pass through many hands during the shipping process as well as during the show. Permanent identification on your property will reduce temptation and make the return of these items easier should they disappear. NEVER leave money, purses, wallets or laptops unattended in your booth. Take your cash, credit cards, and credit card receipts with you at the end of each day. Do not leave valuable items/ personal items in clear view or within reaching distance of other people. Once the show closes, always be sure to pack your valuables first.
