October 2007 Dear Exhibitor, On behalf of the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) and the California Association of Winegrape Growers (CAWG), co-organizers of the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, We'd like to welcome you as an exhibitor for our 2008 event, which will once again be held at the Sacramento Convention Center on January 29 ­ 31, 2008. With over 10,000 people expected to attend, the Unified Symposium is the largest trade show of its kind in North America. The trade show is an important aspect of the overall event and is a tremendous marketing opportunity for you and your colleagues. The sold-out nature of the trade show is testament to the value and importance of the Unified Symposium, and we are pleased that you have chosen to be a part of it. Please read this Prospectus carefully. In addition to vital data, dates and requirements, it also provides some additional pre-show and sponsorship and marketing opportunities that you may want to explore (refer to page 5 for details). You are also strongly encouraged to read through our new policy regarding alcohol restrictions in your booth (refer to the Alcoholic Beverages and Food Services section on page 12 for details). Built with the joint input of growers, vintners and allied industry members, the Unified Symposium provides wine and grape industry professionals with direct access to the latest information they need to remain competitive. To ensure easy trade show access for our large number of attendees, we will again be offering these popular features:

A tailored program developed by industry insiders that includes wine tastings expected to continue to

About the Symposium

Hosting Organizations The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium is a limited liability company. The American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) and the California Association of Winegrape Growers (CAWG) are non-profit organizations and are its sole members. The common objective is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of research and technological developments and to promote education in winemaking, grapegrowing, marketing and finance. The Goal of the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium Jointly organized by ASEV and CAWG, the Symposium represents the collective experience and knowledge of the entire wine and grape industry. The program is developed in cooperation with our many industry organizations and universities. The Symposium has an established and well recognized history of providing vintners and growers with the information they need to remain competitive. The Symposium provides critical, practical information regarding global trends, challenges and issues facing the wine and grape industry. This event is an ideal forum for suppliers to showcase their products and enhance the comprehensive and educational program.

Sponsorship & Advertising

Why should you sponsor? It is the "must attend" event of the year -- the one venue that growers, vintners, suppliers, marketers, researchers and the media lock into their calendars years in advance. Following months of media coverage, the Symposium draws more than 10,000 attendees to Sacramento each year to convene for the latest news, trends and updates. Seminars, speeches and panel discussions mark the three days in January when the industry pauses to learn, share and plan. The Symposium is an ideal opportunity -- a rare chance to tie your company name to the industry's premiere gathering. Think about it. From a marketing perspective, a Symposium sponsorship gives you a unique chance to broadcast your message to your clients. It sets you apart from your competition as a supporter of a symposium hosted by two well-established industry associations. It demonstrates your commitment to advancing our wine and grape industry and helping your clients. And, it does all of this in an idyllic venue where your clients gather for three days to discuss the broader issues impacting their livelihood. Sponsorship of the Symposium puts your name before your clients -- not only while they are making buying decisions, but also while expanding their professional knowledge, networking and even dining. There are few sales or marketing opportunities as significant and powerful! As you develop your marketing plans for 2008, consider marrying your name and reputation to the Symposium as a sponsor. It is a marketing investment that pays long-term dividends.

Rules & Regulations

By signing the 2008 Contract/Application for Exhibit Space, exhibitor agrees to and is bound by the terms and conditions set forth in this 2008 Exhibit Prospectus.

Booth Information

The booth rental fee includes a draped backdrop, side drapes, 3 foot side rails, a booth identification sign (company name and booth number) and exhibit hall vouchers to distribute to your guests. All services such as electrical are not included. Standard: All booths are 10 feet deep by 10 feet wide with the exception of island booths and large machinery areas. All aisles will be carpeted in the 1st floor exhibit hall. The ballroom level (3rd floor exhibit area) is completely carpeted. The floor of the tented exhibit area on the terrace will be covered with black AstroTurf. Carpet for booths may be rented from the Official Services Contractor for all three locations. Standard booths may not exceed the back wall height of 8 feet, including signs or special lighting. All standard booths and peninsulas must maintain the open sight lines as outlined in the Booth Construction Guidelines on page 14. Failure to maintain sight lines and/or any violation of the Booth Construction Guidelines may result in the dismantling of the booth or loss of priority points for future booth sales. No refunds will be issued for booths that are dismantled due to a violation of the Booth Construction Guidelines. Ceiling Height: Hall A - 30'; Hall B - 30'; Hall C-E - 19' Freight Door Dimensions: 17' 8" wide x 15' 6" high Freight Elevator Dimensions: 7' wide x 16' long x 9' high Freight Elevator Maximum Weight Allowed: 12,000 lbs. 3rd Floor Exhibit Area Ceiling Height: 25' 3rd Floor Exhibit Area and Terrace Floor Load: 150 lbs. per sq. ft. Terrace Ceiling Height: 8' (Weight distribution approval required by Sacramento Convention Center and GES.) Island: Renting island booths requires purchasing an additional two (2) booths to allow for 360 degree traffic access. For example, if a four (4) booth island is selected, Exhibitor will pay for six (6) booths. This requirement can be waived if the Symposium does not have to remove booths to create the island. For example, if an island is created from a group of 10 ft. x 10 ft. booths with existing rows approved by the fire marshal, the Symposium would not have to remove additional booths to make the island. Some islands are pre-drawn for aesthetic reasons with booths removed and renting two additional booths would be required. If two neighboring island booths exist, the two companies will share the cost of the two booths that would be removed. Peninsula: Peninsula booths (two or more booths

side by side at the end of an aisle) may not exceed the back wall height of eight (8) feet in the center 10 feet. Booths may also not exceed the back wall height of four (4) feet in the outer five (5) feet. Your booth neighbor also needs the same visual exposure from the aisles. (See diagram on page 14.) Large Winery & Vineyard Machinery: Designated areas are available for rental by suppliers that exhibit large machinery. Any equipment that has wheels must have rubber tires or a similar covering and all engines must have a drip pan underneath or the exhibitor will incur an additional expense for installation, removal and/or cleanup. This protection is required by the Sacramento Convention Center. Union labor spotting fees will apply for large machinery that can be driven directly into and out of the exhibit hall. This expense will be billed by GES, the Official Services Contractor. Refer to your exhibitor services kit for more details and fees or contact GES for an estimate of fees. Companies who wish to exhibit in a large machinery area must meet our minimum equipment requirements. Each piece of Large Vineyard or Winery Machinery must necessitate at least a block of four standard booths to meet the Booth Construction Guidelines on page 14. Any Exhibitor contracted at a discounted rate who do not meet the minimum machinery size or do not exhibit the equipment listed on the Addendum for Large Machinery Exhibitors will be invoiced at the standard booth rate. In the event that your machinery does not meet these requirements at the 2008 show, you will be invoiced at the standard booth rate of $18.00 per square foot. If you have any questions about the minimum size requirements, please contact AMI. Floor Space: Island booths and Large Machinery Areas are not restricted by the eight (8) foot height limitation. Full use of the floor space is permitted, however, any back walls or drapes set along the booth perimeter may not be higher than four (4) feet. Demonstration areas may not be set on the aisle line of the exhibits; space must be left within the exhibit area for attendees. Fire code stipulates that attendees or Exhibitor cannot interfere with the normal traffic flow in the aisles. If an unusual design is contemplated or if you are not certain if your booth meets show requirements, approval should be obtained from the Symposium before proceeding with design and construction. Large Machinery Areas that are split, such as E, must also adhere to the Floor Space guidelines. Failure to follow the perimeter guidelines may result in the dismantling of the booth or loss of priority points for future booth sales. No refunds will be issued for booths that are dismantled due to a violation of the perimeter height restriction. All Booths: No exhibit will be permitted to span an aisle by ceiling or floor covering. Exposed or unfinished sides and/or exhibit backgrounds must be draped to present an attractive appearance. Refer to Pre-Show Inspection section on page 9 for more details. Cancellations: Exhibitor is encouraged to


telephone or fax AMI to cancel reserved booth space. However, the cancellation is not effective until AMI receives notice in writing by fax, mail or e-mail. e reasons for cancellation must be included in the written notice. The date the cancellation is received in writing will be the official cancellation date. (1) If Exhibitor canceled prior to August 31, 2007, the exhibitor will not forfeit any portion of the booth fee payment. (2) If Exhibitor cancels any booths on or after August 31, 2007, but prior to November 1, 2007, Exhibitor will forfeit 50% of the total contracted booth space fee of the cancelled space unless the space can be reassigned. If the space can be reassigned, Exhibitor will forfeit 25% of the total contracted space fee to cover the overhead expenses incurred by the Symposium. (3) If Exhibitor cancels any booths on or after November 9, 2007, but prior to December 3, 2007, Exhibitor will pay 100% of the total contracted booth space fee of the cancelled space, unless that space can be reassigned and unless all other booths have been sold. If the cancelled space can be reassigned, Exhibitor will pay 50% of the total contracted booth space fee. (4) If Exhibitor cancels any booths on or after December 3, 2007, Exhibitor will pay 100% of the total contracted booth space fee of the cancelled space. (5) For any assigned space not claimed and occupied, or for which special arrangements have not been made by 12:01 am on January 30, 2008, Exhibitor will not be entitled to a refund. The Symposium can opt to reassign the space. Sharing: Sharing of exhibit space is not permitted without the consent of the Symposium. If a booth or booths are to be shared, the primary contracted Exhibitor (a contracted Exhibitor with accrued points that is eligible for a booth assignment is the primary contracted Exhibitor) must submit a letter of intent to share space that lists each company and complete contact information and product(s) or service(s) that will share the booth space. Additionally, a completed and signed contract must be submitted by each company sharing space as well as a certificate of insurance and endorsement (Form CG 2026) (see page 11). e primary exhibitor must be present at the show to be eligible for the next year's presales opportunity. Exhibitor sharing space who is not the primary contracted Exhibitor will not receive priority points for the contracted booth space. Only the primary contracted company will be issued priority points and be eligible for booth sales in the next year. Exhibitor sharing space who is not the primary contracted company can acquire booth space for future shows by joining the waiting list for booth assignment. The waiting list assignments are made based on availability after the completion of booth sales for renewing Exhibitors. Although sharing your booth space may be allowed, Exhibitor shall not sell or sublease their booth space.

If Exhibitor is representing more than one company, such as in the case of a distributor, a fully completed contract for the primary company must be submitted with completed contract(s) from the legal representative(s) of any such company on behalf of the company to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth in the Contract Instructions for the 2008 Symposium and Exhibit Prospectus. This requirement is necessary to proceed with booth assignment. Companies that submit contracts received after December 3, 2007, may not be included in the Official Program and Product Guide that is given onsite to attendees.

Change in Management or Ownership & Trade Show Rights

The Symposium shall not assume any responsibility or liability for a company's changes that potentially impact the company's organizational structure. Such changes may include lawsuits or similar legal activity between companies or legal changes such as mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcy and/or liquidation including auctions. The Symposium also shall not assume any responsibility for change such as when an individual marketing representative changes employment and/or is party to organizing a new or different company. There are no trade show rights, such as accrued booth assignment points, that can be sold or transferred. Exhibitor understands and accepts that accrued points are not owned by the Exhibitor or transferable or part of any contractual documents other than that as stipulated in the Symposium Contract/Application for Booth Space. If there is a change in distributors for a specific product and/or product line, any booth points previously accrued by the prior distribution company will not be applicable for a new distributor under such circumstances. If one company is purchased by another company as a whole and a similar product category continues to be offered, allowance for any accrued points to be carried forward will be considered by the Symposium. If both the purchasing company and company being purchased already have booth assignment points, the highest number of accrued points and number of booths will be retained for future booth assignments.

Pre-show Inspection

A walkthrough will take place by show management at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, January 29, 2008. Any booths not meeting the rules and regulations of the Exhibit Prospectus by this point in time are in violation of show standards. A notice stipulating required action will be posted at applicable booths. This includes exceeding booth height and width restrictions as specified on the Booth Construction diagram on page 14. Any popup, pre-fabricated or other custom designed booth that appears unfinished from side(s) or back will be draped by GES and billed to the contracted Exhibitor. Failure to follow the Booth Construction Guidelines will result in the dismantling of the booth or loss of priority points for future booth sales. No refunds will be issued for booths that are dismantled due to a violation of the construction guidelines.

Booth Construction Guidelines



Space dimensions shown on the floor plan are from center line of booth equipment such as side rails and/or back drape. Exhibit structures must be constructed to allow sufficient space and structural tolerance on each side for this equipment and for utility service at rear of booth. Standard Booth Definition: One or more standard units in a straight line. If display is over 4 feet high, it is to be confined to an area within 5 feet of the back line. Depth: All display fixtures over 4 feet in height and placed within 10 lineal feet of an adjoining exhibit, must be confined to that area of Exhibitor's space which is within 5 feet of the back line. Intent: Exhibitor is entitled to a reasonable sightline from the aisle regardless of the size of his or her exhibit. Exhibitor with larger space (30 lineal feet or more) should also be able to effectively use as much of the total floor space as possible as long as they do not interfere with the rights of others. The limitation on display fixtures over 4 feet and within 10 lineal feet of a neighboring exhibit is intended to accomplish both of these aims. Height: All standard booths will be confined to a maximum height of 8 feet. Intent: Any portion of an exhibit extending above the 8 feet of high draped booth background will detract from the overall impact of the exhibit directly behind that booth regardless of how the rear of the offending exhibit is finished. Peninsula Booth Definition: Peninsula booths (two or more booths at the end of an aisle) may not exceed the back wall height of 8 feet in the center 10 feet. Booths may also not exceed the back wall height of 4 feet in the outer 5 feet.



5' 5'





Intent: Exhibitor is entitled to a reasonable sightline from the aisles. Please refer to Pre-show Inspection & Violation Notice section on page 9. Island and Large Machinery Booths Definition: Island booths are a collection of four or more 10 ft. x 10 ft. booths contracted by one Exhibitor with 360 degree aisle access. Large Machinery Areas are designed for the use of Exhibitor who displays a piece of machinery that would be unable to fit into a standard booth space without violating the booth construction guidelines. Since island booths and Large Machinery Areas are by design separated by the width of an aisle from all neighboring exhibits with the exception of split-lettered areas, the 8 foot height limitation does not apply. Full use of the floor space is permitted; however, any back walls or drapes set along the booth perimeter may not be higher than 4 feet. Split-lettered Large Machinery Areas such as E must also adhere to the perimeter guidelines. Intent: Island booths are designed to allow for Exhibitor to enjoy a greater presence at the show. Large Machinery Areas are designed for exhibitors who would be unable to display his or her product in a standard booth. Please note that Large Machinery Areas are not designed to be used as conventional booth spaces.

Unified Wine & Grape Symposium 2009 Booth Pre-Sales

Booth pre-sales for the 2009 Symposium will be conducted in the months directly following the 2008 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium. The LLC members maintain a policy that requires your cooperation by maintaining the number of booths contracted for 2008 as a maximum for 2009. For example, if a company has purchased three booths for 2008, no more than three will be allowed to be reserved for 2009. This will allow as many suppliers as possible to exhibit in 2009. New or returning companies who did not exhibit in 2008 will be restricted to one booth space maximum based on availability. Point System Booth assignments will take place using a point system. Every company exhibiting and present at the show will be allocated points based on the number of booths contracted for 2008, the number of years the company has exhibited, and points per year exhibited at ASEV through 1998. For companies with the same number of points, 2009 booths will be assigned in reverse alphabetical order, excluding articles such as "the," "a" and "an." Exhibitors who choose to not exhibit in 2009 will not be included in the pre-sale for future shows. Exhibitors sharing space who are not the primary contracted exhibitor will not receive priority points for the contracted booth space. Only the primary contracted company will be issued priority points and be eligible for booth sales for renewing exhibitors. Exhibitors sharing space who wish to acquire separate booth space for future shows must be placed on the waiting list for booth assignment. The waiting list assignments are made based on availability after the completion of booth sales for renewing exhibitors.
