Package Storage, Delivery and Shipping Services

All incoming packages should be specifically labeled and addressed to the Exhibitor or guest receiving package and marked with the name and date of your meeting. Because there is limited storage space, boxes can be accepted no more than three (3) working days prior to your meeting. Storage fees will apply if packages arrive prior to the 72 hour grace period or are left more than 72 hours following the conclusion of your function. Any items remaining after one week will be discarded. Delivery and/or shipping charges will also apply for all group related packages. Exhibitors will be charged directly for any applicable storage, delivery or shipping fees and are responsible for providing a method of payment.
