Exhibitor FAQ

The most important thing is to RETURN YOUR SIGNED SPACE CONTRACT with payment. This show will SELL OUT FAST, and we are unable to hold any space without a complete contract. You may also review the exhibit floor plan. Once we receive your contract, we will call you to discuss your space selection. Space is assigned on a first-come first-served basis in the order contracts are received. You can view the floor plan or download the exhibitor contract from the Exhibitor Page.

Material handling, often referred to as drayage, is the movement of your freight from the carrier to your booth and then back to the carrier at the close of the show. Freight handling includes unloading your materials, storage at our warehouse for up to 30 days in advance of the show, delivery of the materials to your booth, the handling of empty containers to and from storage, and removal of your material from the booth for reloading onto your outbound carrier.

Yes. Material handling charges are computed based on the weight of your materials. The weight is rounded up to the closest hundred pounds (cwt.) and charged according to the rates published in your show service kit. Check your show schedule carefully to determine whether or not overtime charges may apply to your shipment.

For your convenience, Show Managment recommends elitExpo. Representatives from this freight company will be on-site to assist you. Although as an exhibitor, you are free to use whatever carrier you like to transport your materials.

In most cases, an exhibitor may bring in what can be hand-carried in one trip without the use of the loading dock or hand trucks. Refer to the union jurisdictions in your service manual for specific information regarding your show.

YES - Badges will be required for all personnel to enter the exhibit area during move-in, move-out and show hours. Badges must be worn at all times while in the exhibit hall. Exhibitor Badges will only be issued to those working in the booth. Those helping to set-up or to teardown the booth will be given temporary worker badges – which will not be valid during show hours.

Allotment breakdown is as follows:
10x10 Booths = 2 complimentary passes per space

If you have used your allotment and require additional staff badges, or guest badges, you may purchase those at the current registration rate.

Show Management has set-up on-line registration for your convenience! Please visit the exhibitor service kit page for registration instructions.

With a log-in and password, which is the email address used when signing up to exhibit and the password is the company zip code, you can simply register your staff, make any changes, and keep track of your staff badges. If you prefer you may fill out the manual registration form and fax to (817) 277-7616.

You can pick up your badge at show site, at the registration counter located in Caesars Palace. For confirmation of your registration you may call (817) 277-7187 or (800) 576-8788.

Payment is refundable if CAR is notified in writing postmarked on or before the date posted on the contract, except for a $500 processing fee. Cancellation policy applies to all exhibiting firms. Failure to appear at the exposition does not release the exhibitor from the responsibility for payment of the full cost of space rented.
