During event move-in and move-out, the docks are available between the hours of 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. Please note that due to guidelines set by the Fire Marshal, the docks will be closed during exhibit hall events. During this time, vehicles are not allowed to operate but are allowed to park in designated areas.
Labor Unions claim jurisdiction over all unloading and reloading of freight, exhibit materials, product, empty containers, and related equipment. They also have jurisdiction over all material handling equipment including but not limited to forklifts, towmotors, dollies, pallet jacks, etc.
Exhibitor Hand-Carry Procedures
Exhibitor hand-carrying of small items through the lobby entrance is limited to items easily carried by hand without the use of freight handling equipment.

Brede National Exposition Services will control access to the loading docks in order to provide for a safe and orderly move-in/out. Unloading or reloading at the dock of any and all contracted carriers will be handled by Brede National Exposition Services.
