Can I set up my own booth or do I have to hire labor?
Exhibitors can install and/or dismantle their own display providing the total time for installation does not take any more than thirty (30) minutes for one person to complete without the use of tools.

Can I bring in my own material?
One person, in one trip, may hand carry items onto show floor. Exhibitors may move a "pop-up" display, equal or less than 10' in length, if capable of being carried by hand, or a 2 wheel baggage cart, by one full-time employee of the exhibiting company

Is there security on the show floor?
Show security guards will be on duty 24 hours a day from move in to move out. However, show security should not be relied upon to provide more than a presence to inhibit theft. Show Management, its agents, vendors and the convention center do not offer nor accept responsibility for exhibitors' property. As an additional safeguard, exhibitors may hire security service to provide exclusive security for their booth. Check with your insurance provider for information on an inexpensive Show Exhibiting Insurance Rider.
