Important Reminders for Exhibitor Move-In, Hand-Carry & Personally Owned Vehicle (POV)

During Show set-up, exhibitors may hand-carry their merchandise from their Personally Owned Vehicle (passenger car, pickup truck, or van) into the convention center. Only hand-carried or wheeled items that can be rolled through a single glass lobby door are allowed. Loading or unloading anything larger will be prohibited.

The Lobby G Entrance off Convention Center Boulevard will be the closest option for gaining access to the DEMA Show Floor. There is no parking or temporary parking allowed on Convention Center Blvd. Plan your parking; Lots F and J are currently scheduled to be open.  

If you cannot hand-carry through the single glass Lobby G Entrance, you will need to come in through the marshalling yard and gain your dock pass. POVs must have one person remaining with the vehicle at all times and will have a maximum of 30 minutes to hand-carry items. No long-term parking will be allowed on the docks. To further assist you, TEG offers cart service for POVs. Flatbeds 15' or longer, U-Haul's, or other box trucks and vans are NOT considered POVs and will be subject to standard material handling rates.
