Exhibitor Press Room Guidelines

The ICAST Press Room is another way for exhibitors to get the word out about their products and services. Exhibitors are encouraged to place product information and press kits in the Press Room for media.

If you need assistance regarding press outreach, please contact Communications Director Mary Jane Williamson, (703) 519-9691, x227.

General Guidelines

  • Only ICAST exhibitors and American Sportfishing Association members can place materials in the press room.
  • ICAST sponsors will receive prominent reserved bin space, signage and other special visibility in the Press Room and in other ICAST promotions.
  • Bins are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. Each exhibitor is allowed one bin.
  • Exhibitors are responsible for keeping their bins stocked throughout the show, although ASA staff will certainly help as much as possible.
  • Press kits, catalogs and other materials may also be distributed in exhibiting companies’ booths, but not in the aisles on the show floor or other common areas.
  • Because of agreements with our host hotels, ASA must give prior approval for show daily-type publications or other promotional materials intended for distribution at the hotels.
  • ASA staff reserves the right to move or remove materials that do not comply with any of these guidelines.

Press Room Bulletin Board

Exhibitors planning press conferences, product demonstrations, celebrity guest appearances or any other special events or booth attractions may place posters, notices or announcements on the ICAST Press Room Bulletin Board. Please limit the size to 8.5” x 11”.
