EXHIBITING INFORMATION  

BOOTH PACKAGE & EQUIPMENT

Exhibit space includes carpet, (2) 75 Watt track lights per each 100sq ft, a 150 Watt electrical outlet and one wastebasket.  Each booth will be identified with a clean, simple Booth Identification Sign that includes the space number and company name.

Each exhibitor receives the Basic Equipment Package when filled out and ordered with the show contract. Please contact Walter Young at (312) 527-7988 or wyoung@themart.com if you have questions on placing additional equipment orders. See the Booth Equipment Order Form for a listing of standard booth equipment and to order additional quantities you may need.

In order to facilitate on-site requests as quickly as possible, we require that all exhibitors submit the Method of Payment Form by August 9, 2016.

BOOTH FLOORING

All booths and aisles will have carpet.

BOOTH LIGHTING AND ELECTRICAL SERVICE

Aside from the lighting that is included in your booth package, all electrical services will be provided or supervised by Showtime on The Piers technicians. Electrical services should be ordered in advance using the Electrical Services Order Form. Prepayment is required. No one other than a Showtime Electrician can make any electrical connections or install/remove electrical cables or fixtures. Therefore, if you provide your own light fixtures and cables, Showtime must do the installation and removal of your light fixtures and cables. There is an additional labor charge for this service. Rates are posted on the Electrical Service Order Form.

Electrical equipment must conform to City of New York code requirements.

Examples of these requirements are as follows:

  1. All wiring or flexible cords shall be 3-wire, "hard usage approved", 14 gauge, grounded, unless the cord is a component part of an assembly approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory or the City of New York.
  2. Only porcelain socket lamps or plastic lamp holders may be used. Brass-shelled socket lamps are prohibited.
  3. Exhibit spot or floodlights must be positioned so as to be "unreachable" by the public, free from and unattached by any material or fabric.

Any questions regarding electrical utilities should be directed to Showtime at (212) 977-7414.

BOOTH CLEANING

MMPI ensures that all booths will be vacuumed prior to the first day of the show at no charge. If you require additional cleaning services, please complete the Cleaning Order Form .

DRAYAGE

Also known as “materials handling,” drayage is the labor to receive freight during move-in, delivering it to your booth, removing empty containers, storing and returning them after the show, and loading materials for outbound shipping. This cost is included in your booth package.

EMPTY CONTAINER STORAGE

Due to City of New York Fire Ordinances, packing materials may not remain on the show floor while the show is open. Flammable containers must be removed from the floor.

When your containers are empty, obtain "EMPTY" labels from the Exhibitor Service Desk. Use the labels to mark your crates, boxes, and containers with your company name and booth number. Leave the containers in the aisle; for your convenience, these empty labeled containers will be picked up by MMPI staff and returned to you at the end of the Show. Please remember that you will not have access to these containers during the show.

PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEOTAPING & BROADCASTING

Photographing, videotaping, filming, or sound recording is prohibited without the prior written consent of Show Management. Permission should also be obtained from individual exhibitors prior to the filming of their exhibit.

SECURITY

Show security will be on duty 24 hours a day from move-in to move-out, but cannot and should not be counted on to provide more than a presence to inhibit theft. Exhibitors can hire the services of a guard by contacting Show Management at (312) 527-7988 or emailing Walter Young at wyoung@themart.com

SERVICE DESK

The Exhibitor Service Desks, located on the show floor, can respond to questions about shipping, material handling, and billing, and will be happy to assist you in placing orders for booth services or equipment.

SMOKING

Piers 92/94 are non-smoking facilities.

TIPPING

Show Management requests that exhibitors do NOT tip labor. It is considered a destructive practice leading to a lack of rapport between management and labor.
