LIQUOR LAWS:       There are many Texas laws that prohibit the sale, purchase and
                   distribution of alcoholic beverages to anyone under 21 years
                   of age. In order to prevent sales and/or service of alcoholic
                   beverages to individuals under the age 21, the licensee, agent
                   or employee has the right to refuse to sell or serve alcoholic
                   beverages to anyone who is unable to produce adequate
                   written proof of identity and age. Adequate proof of age and
                   identity of an individual is a document issued by a federal,
                   state, county or municipal government including but not
                   limited to a driver's license; a selective service card; or an
                   Armed Services ID card.

                   It is unlawful for any person under 21 years of age to show or
                   present false or fraudulent written identification or use
                   identification other than his or her own to order, purchase,
                   attempt to purchase, receive or serve alcoholic beverages.

                   It is the policy of the Hyatt Regency DFW International
                   Airport not to allow our servers to accept alcohol as a gratuity.
                   It is a violation of our liquor license for any patron or guest of
                   the Hyatt Regency DFW International Airport to consume
                   liquor not purchased in our establishment. The Licensee,
                   agent or employee has the right to refuse to sell or serve
                   alcoholic beverages to anyone whom they feel may have
                   already had enough to drink or may be under the influence of
                   another substance.

                   The Hyatt Regency DFW International Airport does not allow
                   any person or group to bring in liquor for use in banquet
                   rooms or hospitality suites.

LOAD IN/LOAD OUT   Each and every person working in the Hotel must have
PROCEDURES:        a visitor's badge. The show manager/foreman/supervisor in
                   charge of the crew will be responsible for providing the
                   badges needed. No matter what time move-in or strike takes
                   place, everyone must be wearing a badge. Anyone not
                   wearing a badge will be asked to leave the Hotel.

                   Company badges are acceptable, as long as all crew members
                   have one. Any exceptions to the above must be approved by
                   the Convention Services Manager.




                           10
All forklifts and scissor lifts brought into the Hotel must have
white non-marking tires or have tires that are taped or carpet
covered. Lifts are to be brought in through the back of the
Hotel. Lifts are never to be used in any of the public areas
unless permission is obtained from the Convention Services
Manager in charge of the conference or Convention Service
Floor Manager. A reasonable speed is expected of the lifts at
all times avoiding burning and stretching of Hotel ballroom or
exhibit hall carpeting.

When rolling road cases or any equipment across carpeted
floors, plywood sheets or very heavy plastic is to be laid
across the area being traversed in order to prevent damage to
the carpet.

Damage repair costs caused by lifts will be the responsibility
of the contractor.

All scissor lift rentals should be scheduled through AVW, our
in-house A.V./Staging Company.

Individuals that will be in public areas of the Hotel should be
clearly shaved and attired. This is especially important for
those individuals eating in the Hotel restaurants.
No food or beverage of any kind will be allowed in the Hotel
catwalks or airwall pockets at any time. Food and beverage
will be allowed in the ballroom or exhibit halls only when
requested through formal channels by meeting planner or on-
site representative.

Production or exhibit staff/crew food and beverage set-ups
will be promptly refreshed or cleared by Banquets when
requested by the on-site representative.

No smoking will be allowed in any area of the Hotel, except
the designated outside smoking area.

Load-in and load-outs should be scheduled during off-peak
times to avoid heavy dock delivery traffic times. Specific
load-in and load-out information is to be provided to a
Convention Services Manager well in advance in order that
the Hotel can better prepare . . . (ask assistance from DPS for
traffic monitoring, dumpster moved, etc.).
Back hallways and service areas are to be kept clear of all
empty crates and cases. Empties are to be placed back on the
truck(s). Storage can be arranged through Convention
Services only when space is available.

Access to the catwalks is obtainable only through Hyatt
Security. Convention Services will notify Security of move-in
and move-out times. The catwalks will not be left unlocked
except at times a crew is working in these areas. This will be
monitored very closely. Crews are expected to let Convention
Services or Security know when they have completed their
work in the catwalks.




       11
Any rigging into the ballroom ceiling must be provided and
coordinated through AVW/Telav. A plan must be submitted
for approval in advance of load-in.

Availability of electrical service in the Enterprise Ballroom
and Exhibit Halls is limited at times. For very large
productions, it may be necessary to bring in a generator. We
have (1) 200-amp grid, (1) 100 amp grid and (1) 50 amp grid
available in the Enterprise Ballroom. There are future plans
for an additional 400-amp tap. If a generator is to be used, the
production company should notify the Hotel in advance of
move-in, to schedule placement.

A Hotel electrician is to be present when hooking up any
complex wiring, lighting, sound or other A.V. equipment that
requires power beyond the wall outlets permanently installed.
Charges are to be at prevailing hourly rates as established on
electrical order forms.

In-house audio visual (AVW) is to provide an on-site
technician when utilizing the ballroom house PA system or
lighting systems. Charges are posted at hourly rates.

Fire Marshall approved Production or Exhibit Diagrams (3-
draft size) are to be submitted to the Convention Services
Manager ten (10) working days prior to move-in day.

During show set-up and teardown, nothing is to be leaned
against walls or doors, thus causing possible marring or
tearing.

No nails, paste, tape, hooks, etc. are to be affixed to any
meeting room or public area walls or pillars.

A hotel representative will inspect for damage resulting from
carelessness during show set-up and tear-down and cost for
repairs will become the responsibility of the contractor. All
areas are to be left in a clean and orderly fashion. No
equipment or materials of any kind is to be left behind after
move-out.

The Hotel will not accept or ship out any exhibitor materials
of any kind. It is the responsibility of the contractor to inform
the exhibitor both prior to, and during the show of their
shipping policies. All shipping forms such as UPS, Federal
Express and Airborne are to be made available to the exhibitor
at the exhibit service desk. Do not send exhibitors to the Hotel
bellstand or package/receiving office with shipping requests.

A Catering/CS Manager is to be provided with an
exhibitor/booth list and freight information, as well as exhibit
show agenda (to include move-in and move-out) thirty (30)
days prior to show set-up day. Last minute bookings are an
exception of course, but the above information should be
provided as timely as possible.

                       NOTHING is to be hung from the sprinkler lines in any of the
                       function space. It will be removed!

                       food/drink from such.

LOCKS:                 Hyatt Regency DFW utilizes the Vingcard electronic locking
                       system on all guest room doors. This system requires the use
                       of a credit card type key and the lock is recoded each time a
                       guest checks out.

Government
The United States government and its employees,
including military personnel, traveling on official
business are exempt from the state hotel occupancy taxes
regardless of the method of payment to the hotel.

taxing authority to be certain.

commissions and institutions (except institutions of higher
education) and their employees traveling on official
business must pay the state and local hotel occupancy
taxes. However, designated state employees issued a
special Hotel Tax Exemption Photo ID or Tax Exempt
Cards are exempt from the state, city and county hotel
taxes. Individuals issued a Hotel Tax Exemption Card
include, but are not limited to, judicial officials, heads of
agencies, members of the Texas Legislature. State
agencies may request a refund of the hotel tax paid.

Diplomatic personnel who present a Tax Exemption Card
issued by the United States Department of State are
exempt from state, city and county hotel taxes.

City and county governments and their employees must
pay the state and local hotel taxes.

A person or business entity working under a federal, state
or local government contract must pay the state and
local hotel taxes.

Permanent Residents
(the 30-Day Rule)
Guests who occupy a hotel room for 30 consecutive days
will qualify for an exemption from tax as permanent
residents. There must be no interruption of payment
during that period.

Guests who notify the hotel in writing, upon arrival, of
their intentions to stay 30 consecutive days will be
exempt from the beginning of their stay. Guests who do
not advise the hotel upon arrival that they intend to stay
30 consecutive days must pay the tax for the first 30
