What if I have space in both halls?

Our preference is that all stock and items be loaded in on Wednesday to the Lower Level, then the Freight Elevators can be used to move all items upstairs to the Gaming Hall on Thursday after 9:00am.

The last Exhibitor will be allowed onto the Lower Level Dock and the Monroe St pull out at 9:00pm. All Exhibitors must leave both halls by 9:45pm on Wednesday and Thursday.

Exhibitors may load-in from the street level on Wednesday and Thursday. However, parking/loading areas are limited and monitored by police and security.

How do I RSVP for a load-in time?

To help ease traffic and spread out Exhibitors during load in, we've set up an RSVP system. Those in the Lower Level Lobby and Exhibit Hall wanting to access the dock, and those in the Gaming Hall wanting to access the Monroe St pull-out will need to reserve a time to load in.

RSVPs are now closed.

Where do we enter the facility on show days?

Exhibitors have several options to access the facility starting Friday. All Exhibitors and their belongings included box, bins, merchandise, bags, etc will be searched when going through security.

Entrance E

If you are bringing in stock, boxes, bins... anything larger than a backpack, you will need to enter the facility through Entrance E. Entrance E will be opening at 7:30am to allow Exhibitors in early. This entrance is located on 5th St between Washington St and Monroe St.

Entrance F

This entrance is for Exhibitors without any boxes or bins and have, at most, a backpack. This entrance will be open from 7:30am to 11:00am Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Access through this entrance stops at 11:00am.

Entrances A, B & C

These entrances open at 8:30am and may be used as long as you do not have boxes, bins, restock, etc that needs to be searched.

Exhibitors may access the hall as early as 8:00am each day and stay until 8:00pm on Friday and Saturday. Exhibitor Badges are required for early and late access to the halls.

Security will be onsite in both halls before and after hours.

Load-out for everyone

Load-out is the hardest part of any show. While we've had up to a day and half to set up, we only have a handful of hours to pack up and load-out the show. We ask everyone to be patient, be safe, and be kind.

All Exhibitors must be packed up and loaded out by 11pm.

 

Load-out: Exhibit Hall & Lower Level Lobby

Our goal is to have Artist, Author, Creator and Dealer Tables cleared by 8:30pm. Once tables are cleared, we can pull vehicles into the facility to have load-out go faster.

For Dock Access, Exhibitors will receive a Tonto Pass once their space is packed up and staff have checked them out. The Tonto Pass can then be taken to the Tonto Marshaling Yard to stage to access the dock. Exhibitors cannot enter the Tonto Marshaling without a Tonto Pass.

Once at the Tonto Marshaling Yard, Exhibitors will be staged by vehicle type for access to the dock. Once ready to access the dock, Exhibitors will be given a dock pass and cannot enter the dock without it.

Security will be managing the lines for the elevators.

Load-out: Gaming Hall

Exhibitors will use Monroe St pull out to load-out. Once spaces are packed up, Exhibitors will be given a Monroe St Pass to access the pull-out. There may be some wait times depending on how long others take to load their vehicles. Vehicles will still need to be able to make a u-turn into the pull-out.

Exhibitor Lunch

Exhibitor Lunch orders are now closed.

Weapons Vendors

Exhibitors selling foam or prop weapons - all items must be secured down (zip tied to grid wall, in a case, etc) and out of reach of attendees. Items cannot be handled by booth staff or attendees.
