Where’s your empty boxes and crates? They will be on the loading docks. You will have to find them. You can use a hand cart to move them to your booth, or you can ask a forklift operator to move them for you. Coordinate this with the forklift operator boss on the floor. There are two bosses, one for the Arena and one for the Convention Center. Look for them by main exits.

Outbound shipping: Fill out a shipping form, move the boxes or crates to the Convention Center dock or have the forklift boss get them moved for you,. CALL THE SHIPPER TO REQUEST A PICK UP.
