*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 pick-up, by 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 14. 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 fork lift drivers. Labor fees will apply.
No Show Policy:
Exhibitors who have not begun set-up by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 15 will be considered a “No Show” unless you have notified Show Management.
