New load in and load out guidelines

In light of some Safety concerns that have been brought up over the past years, we have instituted some new guidelines to ensure all of our colleagues, vendors and guests are kept safe during Tradeshow move in and out. During Move in and Out, the area can be similar to a Construction site with forklifts, pallet jacks and large pieces of machinery and equipment moving through the Halls. I have itemized the newest point below, and ask that you circulate to your exhibitors moving in:


For the Safety of all parties, no persons under the age of 15 may be present on the show floor during move in, move out or when heavy machinery is operating. It is the Show Manager’s responsibility to communicate this to exhibitor’s prior to the start of move in.


As this is a new policy in place, our Security staff will be circulating during the move in to ensure the policy is being followed, and will bring any concerns to you if exhibitors are violating the policy. This may result in them being asked to leave the venue if they do have children with them, which of course is something we want to avoid.
