The following information will assist you in planning for dismantling your display. In addition to this information, Exhibits Management and Freeman will distribute a "dismantle notice" during the Show. This will reconfirm information that has been made available to you and will provide more specific information as it relates to this year's event.
The close of the Show on the last day (commonly called "the break" of the Show) is a very busy and hectic time. Don't leave anything to chance! Plan your work and work your plan.
When does the Show Close and what is the Dismantle Schedule?
The show will officially close at 3:00pm on Thursday, November 18, 2010. Dismantling of exhibits should NOT begin prior to this time. Respect your fellow exhibitor as they may still be conducting business.
Important Notice: ALL EXHIBITS ARE TO BE OCCUPIED AND IN OPERATION UNTIL THE OFFICIAL CLOSING HOUR OF THE SHOW.
All packing of booths should be completed by 3:00pm, Friday, November 19. No exhibitor shall have the right prior to 3:00pm on Thursday, November 18 to pack or remove any articles or exhibit. All carriers must check in by Friday, November 19 at 9:00am. Bills of lading must be turned in to the Service Desk by this time.

Removal of aisle carpet will begin at 4:00pm on Thursday. Your cooperation is requested so the removal can be accomplished as quickly as possible. Empty crates and cartons cannot be returned until the carpet is removed. Please keep all aisles clear to facilitate this process.
By order of the Fire Department, aisles designated "No Freight/Fire Aisles" must be maintained clear of crates and exhibit materials during move-in and move-out. These aisles are required for emergency access throughout the hall and to expedite freight and empty crate moving. Floor Managers will assist in enforcing the compliance of these rules.
Your cooperation is needed to assist in the movement of all freight empties, but our most important concern is for the safety of all exhibitors and workers on the show floor.
The return of empty crates will start after the aisle carpet has been removed on Thursday and will take several hours to complete.
Please remember that the empty crates and cartons were removed over a two-day period. Do not hold your empties until the last day of set-up. Do not attempt to tip empty crate personnel to return your empty crates, as it will NOT expedite the process.
Immediately at 3:00pm you should begin to pack and secure all valuable items for your own protection. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BOOTH UNATTENDED. THIS IS A CRITICAL TIME DURING THE BREAK AND YOU MUST USE CARE TO SAFEGUARD YOUR DISPLAY AND PRODUCTS.
Show Management, the building operator, the general contractor and the security company provide a measure of protection, such as providing perimeter security. But only you and your staff are responsible for your valuables. Some exhibitors hire designated booth guards to assist in this process. See Product Security Guidelines.
All dismantle orders for labor are part of the installation order forms found in the Freeman "Labor" section of this manual, and should be ordered in advance and then confirmed during installation or Show days at the Freeman Service Desk by Wednesday, November 17 prior to Noon.
Labor can begin dismantling in your booth at 3:00pm (except forklifts) on Thursday, November 18. Workers should not be on the floor prior to that time.
Note: Forklifts for booth work (rigging) will not be allowed onto the exhibit floor prior to 4:00pm on Thursday, November 18. Plan your dismantle work schedule accordingly.
All dismantling must take place within your booth area, and product, display, crates, boxes, etc. must not be put in the aisles.
All "No Freight/Fire Aisles" must remain totally clear to assist in the return of empties and to comply with Fire/Safety rules.
Electrical Service and Utilities will be turned off shortly after 3:00pm, November 18. Exhibitors requiring electrical or utility service past 3:00pm on Thursday must make advance arrangements prior to Wednesday at the Electrical/Utility Counters in the Service Desk Area.
