Setup and Dismantling

You can begin set-up of your booth anytime after your freight is delivered to your booth.

If you ship your freight directly to the show site, how long it takes for your freight to be delivered to your booth depends on many factors, so for planning purposes it is recommended that you schedule your set-up for late in the day (if you have a morning delivery time) or the following day (if you have an afternoon delivery time).

SET-UP COMPLETION DEADLINE

All crates must be emptied and labeled for removal by 3:00 p.m., and exhibits must be completed by 5:00 p.m., Monday, February 8, 2021.  Important Note: Please read the new "Clean Floor Policy"

SETTING UP YOUR OWN BOOTH(Click to Expand / Collapse)

Exhibitors are permitted to setup and dismantle their booths without assistance from the Local IATSE Union.  View complete list of tasks exhibitors are permitted to perform. Only full-time employees of the exhibiting company are permitted to erect and dismantle. Any labor services that may be required beyond what your regular full-time employees can provide, must be rendered by the Union. Labor can be ordered in advance by returning the Display Labor form, or at showsite, at the service desk. Proof of full time employment status may be requested by the Union Steward of any personnel working in your booth.

To authorize your staff to setup your own booth, you will need to do the following:

  • Provide ‘Exhibitor’ badges for your company setup and dismantling employees. Please remember that the Exhibitor Registration Desk will close at 6:30 pm on Monday, February 8. If you are arriving on Monday, please arrive before the Exhibitor Registration desk closes, or you will not have a badge (or access to the exhibit floor) until the following morning.

  • A representative onsite MUST possess and be prepared to show an original Certificate of Insurance indicating compliance with the minimum standards of liability insurance required of all exhibitors.

  • There are to be no carts or dollies on the exhibit floor during show hours.

 

USING AN EXHIBITOR APPOINTED CONTRACTOR (EAC)

If you intend to use contractors other than the Official IBS Contractors to assist in setting up or doing any other work in your booth (including yourself, if you are setting up your own booth), then you must review the EAC Section.

NOTE: If you use an Official IBS Contractor, you do not need to submit EAC paperwork.

  • Any mechanical assistance is limited to a small dolly.
  • The assistance of any motorized device or pallet jack is not permitted.

Exhibitors are permitted to hand carry items to and from the designated Personally Owned Vehicle area. Exhibitors may NOT unload or hand carry anything from the loading dock. See Self-Unloading Policy. Freeman does offer a lower cost "cart service" option to move your freight from your vehicle needing to be unloaded in the dock area. See Cart Service.

Hand carrying is permitted through the main entrance of the facility. In all other circumstances, items should be considered material handling. In no circumstance is any exhibitor authorized to use Freeman material handling equipment for any purpose.

 

24-HOUR ACCESS

Your exhibitor’s badge allows you to have 24-hour access to the exhibit floor, throughout the show. Please be reminded that, while your badge is 24-hours, the Exhibitor Registration desk is not. Please review the exhibitor registration schedule.

CRATE STORAGE

Empty crates and boxes will be removed from the booths to a storage area and returned to the Exhibitor at the close of the show. To protect against loss, small cases should be placed inside larger ones whenever possible.

“Empty” stickers will be available at the Exhibitor Service Desk. Affix the stickers to the empty crates and boxes you wish returned to your display location. Move all crates and boxes into the aisle. Laborers will remove all empty crates daily, and those not tagged will be destroyed. Remember to check crates for essential exhibit material that might be needed for your display. The storage area will be inaccessible once crates are removed from the exhibit hall.

Accessible Storage If you require access to stored materials for daily replenishing of supplies etc., please refer to the Freeman Accessible Storage Order form.

RESTOCKING MATERIALS

Accessible storage will be available to all exhibitors. The re-stocking of brochures, fliers or other materials to one's booth can only be done before the exhibit floor opens and after the exhibit floor closes at the end of the day. There are to be no carts or dollies on the exhibit floor during show hours.
