Cart Loading for Small Exhibits

As you begin to prepare shipping for onsite move-in, I’m sure for some of you the question of “do I really need to ship anything?” has popped up. Well, for smaller companies with minimal materials, the answer is no. As stated in the Labor Jurisdiction/Cart Loading documents of the service kit, an exhibitor may move the material that can be hand carried by one person in one trip without the use of dollies, hand trucks, or other mechanical equipment. 

Labor Jurisdiction

Security and Children on the Exhibition Floor

In the interest of safety and injury prevention, no one under 21 years of age (infants included) will be permitted in the exhibit hall during move-in, the duration of the Exhibition, and move-out. Show Management reserves the right to require proof of age prior to admission to the Exhibition.
