    Where do exhibitors load in at?

    Exhibitors are only permitted to load-in from 7th & J St or 10th & J St. Due to the high volume of exhibitors in the short amount of time, you will need to drop off all your equipment then move your car right away.

    Where do exhibitors park?

    Where is my space?

    We will be sending out an email 7-10 days prior to EDAY with your location as well as a final confirmation on Thursday, September 26th as there may be some shifting around due to the volume of last minute exhibitor sign-ups.  You can visit the Check-in Booth located on 8th Avenue and J Street. Look for the Check In Sign.
