The services provided by the official service contractors for SIGGRAPH 2016 are represented in the exhibitor service center.

First Aid

A first aid station is located in the lobby area of the Anaheim Convention Center. The first aid station is in operation during the entire installation, operating, and dismantling periods.

Food and Beverage Dispensing

Aramark is the exclusive food services supplier for the Anaheim Convention Center. No food or beverage may be brought in without the proper consent. To order, use the Catering Order Form. Exhibitors planning to hand out food and beverage samples should contact Aramark at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Insurance

Exhibitors are urged to provide insurance coverage protecting against damage, loss, or theft. Contact your insurance company or agent and request that this type of coverage be made available to you during SIGGRAPH 2016. The cost is low when added as a rider to your current policy.

Lighting in the Exhibit Hall

Lighting levels in the exhibition will be low and will be set during the installation period. If you require a particular amount of light, you will want to supply your own lighting in the event that the overhead lighting is not sufficient, or plan to obstruct the light if your presentation is light sensitive. Depending on the overhead lighting pattern at the convention center, you may or may not have direct overhead lights. If you require less lighting above your booth, you may request that the lights be turned out directly above your booth.

NOTE: Some lighting changes will incur a fee, and exhibitors will be responsible for changes to lighting. All requests must be approved by Exhibition Management and the Anaheim Convention Center before any lights are turned off. Requests for turning off additional lights will only be approved if the decreased lighting will not significantly affect lighting of the aisles or other booths. Please have an alternate plan for your exhibit in the event that additional lights cannot be removed over your booth or if you require more light than the low lighting levels provide.

Parking

There are multiple parking areas in close proximity to the Anaheim Convention Center: Parking Map. Parking rates can vary so please contact the ACC at +1.714.765.8950 for the most up to date rates.

Security

Synchronization Licenses

If copyrighted musical compositions included in a film or video are performed at your booth, you are required to secure a synchronization license, which permits the inclusion of the music in the film or video. Synchronization licenses generally are issued by the music publishers of the individual composition. Find this information on the compact disc recording of the composition, or on the printed sheet music.

Please contact the appropriate music publisher to secure the synchronization license. Alternatively, you may wish to contact an agency that is used by some music publishers to license synchronization rights. One such agency is:
