When can I move in/out?
Each exhibiting company is assigned a target move-in and move-out date, which is the date an exhibitor’s freight is scheduled to be delivered to their booth or loaded out. To find your targeted move-in date/time, check the color-coded map in the online Exhibitor Service Manual which will be available in the Spring.
What are the target move-in & move-out dates?
Each exhibiting company is assigned a target move-in and move-out date, which is the date an exhibitor’s freight is scheduled to be delivered to their booth or loaded out. Dates are determined based on the booth size, location and time allotted for access to the hall. The larger the booth and the farther the booth is from the freight doors and to freight aisles, generally the earlier an exhibitor’s target move-in date will be.
Adhering to the target move-in date is vital to allow all exhibitors accessibility to their booths and to guarantee the show will open on schedule. Off target move-ins will incur a charge. Find your target date by viewing the targeted floor plan.
Please email email@example.com if you need to work late.
Exhibitors must be set and in place by 5 PM on Tuesday, October 17, 2022.
** PLEASE NOTE (New this year): Advance warehouse shipments will be the same price as direct to show site. Machinery, uncrated items, oversized crates and single pieces over the weight of 5,000 lbs. cannot be accepted to advance warehouse and should be shipped directly to show site. If needed, split your shipment and send as much as possible to the advance warehouse to have your freight in your booth on your target date and time.
