Can we work on our booth set up late?
We encourage all exhibitors to complete set-up work during scheduled hours when all staff is available for immediate assistance, and electricity is turned on for the booths. For those exhibitors needing extra time for set-up, we will accommodate exhibitors staying to work late on their booth as long as possible in the exhibit hall until security closes the lights and shuts down at which point they will ask everyone to leave for safety and liability concerns. Check with your assigned floor manager on site each day of set-up to find out what time the building will shut down each evening if you think you may need extra time.
For security reasons, we cannot allow exhibitors to enter or leave and re-enter the exhibit hall after hours. You must be in your booth by the close of normal access hours in order to stay late for continued set-up. Exhibitors remaining after-hours to work on their booth are also required to stay in their booth and not wander the floor. Late access on show days will not be allowed except for in-booth functions that have been approved in advance of the market.
