Only official exhibitors and sponsors are allowed to conduct other hospitality events during non-expo hours. All violations will be directed to the COPSWEST Committee and/or the CPOA Board of Directors for penalties and sanctions against the violating company. CPOA reserves the right to remove ineligible persons from the show floor.
