MOVE OUT INFORMATION

Tear down begins Sunday at 6:15pm. Packing up your display before the show closes is a direct breach of contract and will result in a fine.

Once your booth is completely torn down you must notify the Central Display Service Desk. They will visually confirm and then allow your vehicle access. There is no waiting in line ahead of time, this holds up everyone else and the city tends to ticket vehicles waiting.

There will be a Central Display Service Desk located in the North West corner and South West corner during move out for any questions or service.

North Side exhibitors use North West Service Desk

South Side exhibitors use South West Service Desk

*Construction waste (e.g. Carpet, wood, bricks, cabinets, etc.) MUST be removed from the venue by the exhibitors. Pack out what you pack in!

Most displays should be out on Sunday. If you have a big display (10x20 or bigger) and would like to come on Monday all displays must be out by 2pm. The loading dock is open from 7:00pm on Sunday until 2:00pm on Monday. Feel free to come during the night – this is the quietest time.

 

If you have any concerns or something the team should know (another show in another city right away), please contact Kayla Donaldson.

The hours for vehicle traffic each day are as follows:

Sunday, April 10th

Monday, April 11th
