If your freight/materials are arriving to show-site via a commercial carrier or company vehicle (not personal vehicles): all drivers must report to the Marshalling Yard first during the specified move in time for your booth. They will then be directed to the convention center for off-loading. Any carriers that show up directly to the convention center will be re-directed to the Marshalling Yard to be assigned a loading time & dock. All drivers must have certified heavy and empty weights when they report to the Marshalling Yard.  If not, this will most likely cause missed targeted move-in as they will be sent to get the weights.  That will result in off-target costs.

If you are bringing your freight/materials using a privately owned vehicle (POV – non-commercial vehicle): You may proceed directly to the convention center docks during your specified move-in time.

  • Exhibitors in aisles 1000 – 13000 report to Welton St. Docks
  • Exhibitors in aisles 14000 – 24000 report to Champa St. Docks.

Will Union Labor be required to move-in/set up my booth? Please review the Colorado Convention Center Labor Jurisdictions so that you know what to expect during setup.

Move-Out Procedure:

Exhibitors may begin dismantling their booth immediately after show end, 3:00pm Thursday (no earlier).

  • Freeman will begin delivering empty boxes/crates, based on booth size (see below) about 2~ hours after end of show, once aisle carpets have been pulled up.
  • Because of this timeframe, exhibitors with larger (400+ sq ft) booths are free to leave after show end and come back to the convention center later Thursday evening to finish dismantling.
  • All exhibitors must stop dismantling by 11:59pm on Thursday.

All outbound shippers/freight carriers hired to pick up your shipment must check in at the Freeman Marshalling Yard before proceeding to the convention center (see attachment) by the specified driver check in time below
