Please indicate on your contract if you are shipping materials to the hotel and we will send you shipping instructions and printable box identification forms, which enable us to locate your boxes. Be sure to schedule shipping so boxes do not reach the hotel until 2 days prior to the meeting in order to avoid storage charges. DO NOT ship any boxes without contacting us for the proper labeling. Boxes shipped to hotel will be in your booth at 8 AM ON SUNDAY - THEY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE EARLIER! The hotel imposes a box handling fee (see contract), which we will pass on to you.
