Our sincere thanks to all of our 2017 exhibitors; thank you for a wonderful show! We look forward to seeing you next year. The documents below will be updated for 2018 closer to show. In the meantime, if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


The marshaling yard where you check-in prior to accessing the Convention Center loading dock is changing to Lot G (same as Fall 2017 and Spring 2018, this is just a reminder). The former check-in lot has been sold for development and is NOT available for check-in, parking during move in, or parking during the show. Please consult the new drive-on access schedule (posted by August 1st, 2018) and parking information below. Please advise your staff to avoid parking in the McLaurin Parking Lot (on Lenoir Street across from the Red Hat Amphitheater), or they may be towed. Thank you for your patience and cooperation with this unavoidable change.
