Exhibitor Facility Tour - Monday, October 7

There is a small registration fee of $30 per attendee and you must register to attend so we can plan accordingly. The conference will be in the South Building of McCormick Place. As the first time in this building, you may have questions about the facility or the overall flow of the show including:
  • Where will registration be located?
  • How the traffic will flow from sessions to/from the exhibit hall?
  • Where is the freight access for the hall?
  • What are your rights as an exhibitor (union rules, exclusive services, etc.)?
If you are looking for answers to the questions above you will need to register for the walk through by September 17. During this walk-through, we will review the overall convention space and exhibit hall regarding potential traffic flow. In addition, Freeman, Choose Chicago (convention and visitors bureau), and McCormick Place staff will be available to answer any specific questions you have regarding labor, material handling, internet, etc.
