Suitcasing Policy

Turnaround Management Association greatly appreciates the support of our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. To protect the investment they make in our events and conferences, TMA has adopted a Suitcasing Policy.


Suitcasing Policy
Suitcasing is a business practice of non-registered individuals and those from non-exhibiting and non-sponsoring companies who solicit business from attendees during a TMA event/conference in the TMA event space as well as other public areas surrounding that space, including the nearby hallways, a hotel lobby, bar or restaurant.

Out of respect to our sponsors, registered attendees and TMA generally, suitcasing is strongly discouraged at TMA conferences and events. Unregistered individuals and representatives from non-exhibiting and non-sponsoring companies who are observed soliciting business at a TMA conference/event or other nearby public space will be asked to leave. Additional penalties may apply such as being banned from future TMA events and conferences. 

Registered attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors are encouraged to advise TMA staff if they observe or are aware of any violations of our suitcasing policy. Please contact conferences@turnaround.org.
