Can I serve food at my booth?

In order to serve food at your booth, you must complete a food and beverage form, provided by Centerplate. All food must be produced by your company, not an outside vendor. The food and beverage form can be found in your Exhibitor Kit.

When can I set up my booth? When can I tear down my booth?

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 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.

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 provide flooring in my booth?

All exhibitors are required to provide floor coverings for their booth. If you would like to order carpet, please find the Carpeting order form in your Exhibitor Kit. If you would like to bring your own carpet/flooring, you are welcome to do so.

How many Exhibitor passes do I receive?

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