NOTE: Fork lifts available only until 4 pm on Thursday

Due to liability and insurance concerns, working in your booth will ONLY be allowed during the allocated move-in/move-out times.

Exhibitors are responsible for the moving of exhibit materials to their booth location; a limited number of dollies are made available to assist with this process. Should you require the services
of a fork lift, please be sure to complete the Move-In Information form.

  • Upon your arrival, please come to the Show Office to register and received your exhibitor badges and parking pass.
  • Please ensure you have sent your certificate of insurance to Caneast Shows Inc. prior to move-in.
  • Your representative should accompany all goods in transit from the loading area to your booth.
  • Show management retains the right to inspect any box or crate that is removed from the exhibit halls.
  • Do not begin set-up until all your goods have been removed from your vehicle and your vehicle is removed from the loading area.
  • The complimentary show fork lift service provided will only be for the delivery of
    materials to your exhibit space from the loading docks/delivery area. Should you require a fork lift with a driver to assist with heavy materials to set up your exhibit, please order a dedicated fork lift service with Freeman prior to the move-in day (at extra cost), to ensure there are no delays with your exhibit set up.
