We strive to make check-in and check-out as efficient as possible. We will send out detailed instructions for each show well in advance, so read them carefully and let us know in advance if you have questions. For each show, we will have a check-in window which is usually the day before and day of the show. For example, for a three-day Friday-Sunday show, check-in usually begins on Thursday, often around 10am, and ends at 6pm. For those who can set up quickly, there is usually a Friday window for, say, 7am-9am, for a show beginning at 10am.
When you arrive, you will check in at the Check-In Station and receive a packet, which usually consists of a parking pass, two exhibitor badges (you can get more if needed), and directions to your booth. We try our best to allow you to drive as close as possible to your spot, but depending on conditions at the site, this is not always possible. Be prepared to work together. For example, we may need to let people with a physical handicap drive on the field but not others.
We expect everyone to stay setup until the very end of the show. For safety reasons especially, no one may drive off the site until the patrons have exited. If we work together, we can get in and out safely and efficiently.
