A Personally Operated Vehicle (POV) is a vehicle driven by you or your employee and Freeman will deliver the materials to your booth. Exhibitors with 400 square feet or less will receive the first 500 lbs. of materials free. Any freight over 500 lbs. will be charged the material handling rate for onsite delivery. Delivery must take place during move-in Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Monday, 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Exhibitors with 450 square feet of freight or larger must be moved as Material Handling by Freeman, and the applicable charges will be billed to your company.

Booth vehicles may be moved in once the booth is completely set up and empty freight has been removed. There must also be a clear aisle to get the vehicle to your booth. Once these criteria have been met, visit the Freeman Service Desk in your hall and a Freeman representative will assist you to your booth.

You must complete the Exhibit Space Design Notification Form and submit a drawing (hand drawing is acceptable), rendering or digital photo clearly detailing all booth dimensions, including length, width and height. For all multi-level booths, you must provide a copy of the architect/engineering drawing that has a current wet stamp of approval from a certified structural engineer.
You may hand carry freight if your display or product is capable of being carried into the hall by hand. Only small, two-wheel dollies can be used.
You can ship two (2) ways: Ship in advance to the Freeman Warehouse September 26 – October 24, 2024 (date subject to change) and Freeman will deliver your freight to your booth during your target time, or you can ship directly to the Las Vegas Convention Center (freight must arrive on your assigned target day). Drivers must check-in at the Freeman Marshaling Yard first to receive a Freight Door assignment before coming to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
This date has been established for the arrival of freight at the Las Vegas Convention Center using a common carrier. Target dates are listed by booth numbers. If you miss your target date, you may be required to pay a surcharge on material handling. If you ship in advance to the Freeman warehouse, the freight will be at your exhibit space at your designated target date. If you need to change your target date, e-mail Joe Boone of Freeman at joe.boone@freemanco.com.

Material Handling is the service to move and store your freight from the freight carrier. This service includes off-loading from delivery truck; delivery to your booth; removing empty crates and boxes; storing and returning the empties: and delivery to your carrier. This service is all provided exclusively by Freeman. It is a one-time charge for incoming and outgoing. See the Material Handling order form for rates. Exhibitors with 400 square feet or less will receive their first 500 lbs. of material handling FREE with no restrictions. It can be delivered to the Freeman Advance Warehouse, shipped directly to show site or delivered in a Privately-Owned Vehicle (POV) or a rental vehicle which is driven by your employee (not temporary labor) to receive the 500 lbs. free. Material Handling over and above the 500 lbs. or exhibitors with 450 square feet or more will be charged the material handling rate.

In order to qualify to hang a sign, your booth must be 20' x 20' or larger and may not be a linear booth.

Hanging signs may be hung at any height; however, the sign itself can be no more than 8' in height from top to bottom and must be finished on all sides. Freeman is required to hang all hanging signs and it is recommended that you ship in advance to ensure the sign is assembled and hung in a timely matter. Please note that Freeman costs for hanging a sign are incurred at both installation and dismantle so budget accordingly.

Lead Retrieval or Lead Management is a system designed to help exhibitors quickly and easily capture and qualify leads on the show floor. Using lead retrieval enables you to qualify leads with follow-up action codes, eliminates hand-keying leads into your database for quicker lead follow-up and gives demographic information on attendees. CompuSystems offers an array of lead management systems – see http://www.compusystems.com/order for ordering and more information.

If the animal is not under control or is disruptive or not housebroken, Show Management may require it to be removed from the Show premises.
