Exhibitor Set-Up

Tuesday, August 21 – 12pm to 5pm
Wednesday, August 22 – 7am to 9am

Exhibitor load-in will be on Tuesday, August 21 from 12pm – 5pm and Wednesday, August 22 from 7am – 9am. Please refer to the rules and regulations regarding “Hand Carry” and “Cart Load” services, they will be strictly enforced. Management will not have equipment available (including rolling racks) to assist with unloading. If assistance is needed, labor can be arranged for a fee at least one month in advance of the show.


Cartload service is a less expensive alternative to the standard drayage program for smaller exhibits. To utilize the cartload service, exhibitors must transport freight in a P.O.V. (a privately-owned vehicle i.e. car, van or SUV) and have 8 pieces or less weighing less than 250 lbs. total. There is one cartload allowed per vehicle. Commercial vans, trucks and trailers are not allowed. For detailed information download the cartload service form or visit page 30 within the Freeman section of this manual.
