Move-Out Information

IEEE PES and Freeman would like to thank you for your business. It has been a pleasure serving you. Below are a few items to assist you during move-out and following the show.
  • 2018 IEEE PES T&D Exposition will close promptly at 3 pm on Thursday, April 19
  • Do NOT begin packing or dismantling your booth prior to 3 pm.
  • Do not leave any personal items, laptop computers, electronic equipment, valuables or supplies unattended in your booth space. Exhibitors are responsible for all contents within their booths.
  • Any exhibitor requiring forklifts, display labor, boom lifts, or other special handling of exhibit material should make arrangements at the Freeman Service Center BEFORE the close of the show.
  • Freeman will remove the aisle carpet first and then freight doors will then open for empty containers to be returned.


  • To facilitate an orderly and timely move out, it is imperative that all aisles remain clear of exhibit material so that empty containers can be returned. All freight free aisles must be kept clear during move- out.
  • Freeman will begin returning cartons, plastics cases, wood crates and other material sent to empty storage at 4 pm or as soon as the aisle carpet has been removed. Freeman anticipates having all empties returned between 11 pm - 12 am.
  • All exhibit material leaving the show floor (from the docks) will require a Material Handling Agreement which can be prepared for you at the Freeman Service Center (located in Lobby D)
  • The UPS Business Center is located on the Meeting Room Level, across from the 300 Meeting Rooms. It will be open Thursday from 9 am -6 pm. Small hand carried items can also be shipped out from the UPS Business Center.
  • After your materials are packed, labeled and ready to go; return the 'completed' Material Handling Agreement to our service center. Do not leave your Material Handling Agreement with your equipment at your booth. If you leave the Material Handling Agreement in your booth with your freight, we will not know that your freight is ready to be loaded out. You can also use Freeman Online Mobile to submit your outbound paperwork without going to the service center, go to FOLMobile. from your Smartphone.
  • If you are not using Freeman Exhibit Transportation, you must contact and confirm the pickup times with your carriers. All material must be packed and ready for out- bound loading and all drivers must be checked in at the marshalling yard by 10 am, Saturday April 21.


  • If you rented a lead retrieval unit from CDS, please return the unit no later than 4 pm, Thursday.
  • Your scanned leads are loaded and available in real-time. Login information to access leads are located on the order confirmation or can be received by visiting our lead retrieval service desk in Lobby D.
  • You can still purchase the post show eblasts or a mailing list (no emails or phone numbers included). Order either option online, your company ID is required to login.
  • Post-Show Mailing Lists will be available for download beginning May 1. Exhibitors will receive an email with link when the list is available.
