 2 golden rules for displays

2) Lights need to be pointed up or down, not across the aisle into neighboring exhibitors’ booths.

Move out

Move out can begin no earlier than 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 28. If you take your exhibit down earlier than 3 p.m., you will lose your space for next year.

Your booth must be removed by 8 p.m.

Equipment must be removed from the Sanford Center parking lots by end of the day Friday, March 29.

Your empty boxes and crates will be on the Convention Center docks. 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.
