** To ensure the show floor is ready for opening on the morning of Tuesday, March 24, a Clean Floor Policy is being instituted this year. All crates and skids must be tagged for removal from the exhibit floor no later than 5:00pm on Monday, March 23, 2015. If crates and skids are not labeled for removal by this time, Show Management and Freeman personnel will label them for removal.

All displays are to be completely installed by 5:00PM on Monday, March 23. Show Management will consider any booth not set by 5:00PM vacant and appropriate action will be taken. Detailing and last minute adjustments may be made on Tuesday, March 24 from 7:00AM – 9:00AM.

For those exhibitors needing extra time for set-up, we will accommodate exhibitors staying to work late on their booth in the exhibit hall. Unfortunately, for security reasons, we cannot allow exhibitors to enter or leave and re-enter the exhibit hall after hours. Exhibitors staying 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 show.

All crates and skids must be tagged and removed from the exhibit floor no later than 5:00 pm on Monday, March 23, 2015. This will allow Freeman sufficient time to complete the laying of the aisle carpet and the overall cleaning of the exhibit hall as well as provide exhibitors the space to complete their booth set up by keeping aisles clear.
There will be no exceptions to this policy. Crates without empty or access storage stickers will be tagged by the area floor managers or Freeman and removed from the exhibit hall – whether full or empty. Exhibitors may request product to be returned to their booth at the exhibitor’s expense. Depending on where the crates are located, it may not be possible to access the crates prior to move-out.
