*Clean Floor Policy
Due to the volume of crates—and to facilitate the installation and cleaning of aisle carpet— a Clean Floor Policy will be enforced. All booths 400 sq. ft. or larger must have major construction complete, with empty crates labeled and ready for pickup, by 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27.

All aisles must be 100% clear of crates, product, ladders, gang boxes or any other items that may impede the installation of aisle carpet and will be removed promptly at 7:00 p.m., regardless of whether or not they are labeled. Requests to bring crates back from storage to the show floor before show opening are contingent upon the time it is requested and availability of forklift drivers. Labor fees will apply.

No Show Policy
Exhibitors who have not begun setup by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28 will be considered a "No Show" unless you have notified Show Management.

Health & Safety Measures
GES employees will adhere to all local government and facility requirements, participating in daily temperature screenings, mask wearing and additional safety protocols outlined here. Rented high-touch surface area items delivered to the booth will be disinfected, and all necessary paperwork will be available online to avoid standing in lines at the service desk, which will be equipped with plexi shields.
