Convention Center Deliveries LOADING & UNLOADING

Receiving Your Shipment

  • Loading and unloading must be done through the designated loading dock(s) assigned to the show.

  • Roll-up doors within the loading dock area allow for entry of large equipment like fire trucks, school buses, tractors, etc.

  • Loading in and loading out through the Convention Center lobby is strictly limited to hand-carried items and must be approved in advance.

  • Materials that require the use of a wheeled apparatus must go through the dock area.

  • All unauthorized vehicles left in the loading area will be towed away at the owner’s expense.

Convention Center Deliveries

  • Deliveries will be accepted 3 business days prior to your event. Deliveries before this must be approved by your Event Manager and may be charged a storage and handling fee.

  • All packages should include Attn: EVENT NAME.

  • The Exhibitor is responsible for packaging shipments, making arrangements with carriers, and applying proper labels for any shipments leaving the Convention Center.

  • Any palletized shipments that require use of pallet jack or forklift may acquire additional labor charges.

Do I need to be present at my booth during delivery?

No. Your shipment will be delivered to your booth by Convention Center personnel. Please ensure your shipments are properly labeled for expedited delivery to your booth. 

After the show, how do I coordinate return shipment?

After the show, you will need to box up and label your shipments. Once you have made arrangements with your preferred carrier, boxed everything securely, and labeled it for shipment, deliver it to the shipping area of the back loading dock for pick-up in the appropriate spot by your carrier.

What if I discover I did not bring everything that I need for my booth display?

The Convention Center does have items available for rent on a first come, first served basis.
