 Loud Noise & Strobe Light Use

Due to complaints from HamEXPO participants of high noise levels in the exhibition hall, we request vendors and participants to not demonstrate or use devices that make loud noises such as sirens, bells, whistles and amplified speakers.  We also recommend that caution should be taken in the use of strobe lights.  Bright strobe lights are known to trigger seizures for some people.  The HamEXPO staff requests your cooperation.
