CHECK IN:

After you have parked, please visit the Check In table. At check in, we will confirm your fees have been paid and you can request unloading assistance at that time. Even if you have already paid and even if you do not need any assistance, we ask that you still check in first.  If you have already paid your fees – Thank you! If you have not or are unsure, please contact us immediately. We ask that everyone please take care of your fees before the day of the event, as this will greatly expedite the check in process for everyone.

There will NOT be any space assignments this year, unless you are a sponsor, have previously requested electricity, or have otherwise been notified. Your location will be determined on a first come, first serve basis. But you MUST still check in first, before proceeding to a space.

There will be VOLUNTEERS stationed throughout the area designated for you to set up in and will direct you to which areas are available. There are several areas that are reserved, so please follow the directions of these volunteers and do not set up in any space unless they have confirmed it first. 

We will also have volunteers & golf carts with trailers to assist you in transporting your materials. We only have a limited number of volunteers available. Please only request assistance if it is absolutely necessary.

All exhibitors and vendors must be completely set up by 10:30am.

UNLOADING AND SETUP:

We recommend coming as early as possible to set up.
(Maybe come setup early, leave to grab some breakfast, and then come back around 10am.)

We will have volunteers & golf carts with trailers to assist you in transporting your materials. Volunteers will be on hand to direct you to your designated area after you have checked in.

If you had previously requested to rent any equipment or needed an electric hookup, please notify us during check-in and we will make those available to you at that time.  

AGAIN, All exhibitors and vendors must be completely setup by 10:30am
