Am I required to schedule labor to set up my booth?

The Local Union claims jurisdiction over the installation and dismantle of trade shows and exhibits. Full time employees of your company, however, may set up your booth without assistance as long as it does not involve power tools. Any labor services that may require power tools and beyond, must be rendered by the Union. Labor can be ordered in advance from Expo Contractors by completing the Labor form located in your Exhibitor Kit.

What is material handling (also referred to as drayage)?

Material handling is the process of unloading your freight boxes from your shipping carrier, either at the warehouse or show site, delivering it to your booth, storing your empty containers, returning of your empty containers at the close of show, and then reloading your freight back onto your shipping carrier. All services provided by Expo Contractors and can be discussed on site.

How is drayage determined?

Drayage charges are based off the weight from your inbound shipment. Please note, the heavier the boxes, the higher the charges.

Do I need to order carpet for my booth?

No, the exhibit hall is carpeted with a multicolor design. If you would like to order a specific color carpet, please find the Carpeting order form provided by Expo Contractors in your Exhibitor Kit.

How many Exhibitor passes do I receive?

For each 10x10 booth, you will receive 4 exhibitor passes. Offerings vary for alternative booth sizes.
