ADVERTISING MATERIALS: REQUIREMENTS

DIGITAL DATA IS REQUIRED FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS.
Preferred format is PDF/X-1a. Note that a standard PDF is not a preferred format; files should be PDF/X-1a which is a PDF subset specific to printing. Publisher shall have no obligation or liability to Advertiser of any kind (including, without limitation, the obligation to offer Advertiser makegoods or any other form of compensation) if an ad is supplied to Publisher by Advertiser in any format other than Publisher's preferred formats. Non-preferred or non-acceptable formats will be charged a $150 processing fee. All files should be built to exact ad space dimensions purchased. For detailed instructions on preparing PDF/X-1a files and submitting ad files to the correct size, visit www.AdsAtAdvanstar.com .

PUBLISHER WILL NOT SUPPLY A FAXED OR SOFT PROOF FOR ADVERTISER-SUPPLIED FILES.
Advertiser is solely responsible for preflighting and proofing all advertisements prior to submission to Publisher. If Publisher detects an error before going to press, Publisher will make a reasonable effort to contact Advertiser to give Advertiser an opportunity to correct and resubmit Advertiser?s file before publication.

ACCEPTED METHOD OF DELIVERY:
The preferred method of delivering ad files to Advanstar is via a Web-based ad uploader at www.AdsAtAdvanstar.com. Files also may be submitted on CD-R or DVD-R disc format.

AD PROOFS:
To ensure that Advertiser's ad is reproduced correctly, a SWOP-certified color proof that has been made from the same file that Advertiser supplies to Publisher must be provided. Publisher cannot provide Advertiser any assurances regarding the accuracy of reproduction of any ad submitted without a SWOP proof. Publisher shall have no obligation or liability to Advanstar of any kind (including, without limitation, the obligation to offer Advanstar makegoods or any other form of compensation) for any ad supplied to Publisher by Advertiser without a SWOP proof.
