Re: Convention contracts

Been to more conferences than I care to recall at the Mandalay Bay, and walked past the Border Grill many times. I think the issue here is that IGEL's stands/posters weren't *in* the Border Grill - looks from the picture like they were stood up in the walkway past it .... which is the property of the Mandalay Bay. Hence the event inside the Border Grill was allowed to go ahead, but MGM took exception to the promo material in the corridor (because VMware's conference contract probably gave them branding rights to the public areas around the Mandalay Bay).
