Check-In/Check-Out Procedures


When you arrive to set up your booth space, visit the exhibitor check-in table near the front of the exhibit hall to pick up your exhibitor packet which includes lanyards/badges, program guide, and a letter to exhibitors.


No early take-downs on Saturday are allowed. Check out is Saturday night at 5:30 PM. Before you begin packing up your booth, please return the all lanyards/badges in the exhibitor envelope to the exhibitor table. We re-use the lanyards/badges to help keep our costs low.
