     EXHIBITOR-APPOINTED CONTRACTOR (EAC)
     REGISTRATION
     Exhibitor Appointed Contractors (EAC) – EAC’s are
     independent contractors hired by exhibiting companies
     to design, set up and tear down their booth. In most
     cases they will place all orders for the exhibiting
     company. If you hire an EAC, they will need a wrist
     band and badge to access your booth during move-in,
     show dates and move-out.

     The Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Association (EACA)
     is once again assisting PACK EXPO / PROCESS EXPO
     and CPP EXPO with the registration and badging of
     EAC’s at this year’s show. By registering your EAC
     online, the processing of the EAC notification forms
     and insurance certificates will be greatly enhanced
     and simplified. Go to www.EACA.com and click on EAC
     Registration. If you do not have access to the Internet,
     please fax your EAC registration form to the EACA. (See

24   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
Section 1 of the Exhibitor Service Manual.) DEADLINE
FOR REGISTERING YOUR EAC IS August 22, 2011.

EXHIBITOR REGISTRATION
The majority of exhibitor personnel were pre-registered
by their companies on the exhibitor badge order form
provided in Section 8 of their Exhibitor Service Manual
or online at www.packexpo.com.

Badges must be worn in the hall at all times and must
be used in their original form (for instance, substituting
a business card for a badge is not permissible).

 Pre-Registered Badges – Show Management will
  provide exhibitors with one free exhibitor badge for
  each 75 square feet of contracted exhibit space,
  or fraction thereof, rounded to the highest number
  for pre-registered badge requests only (use the
  following formula: total square feet contracted ÷ 75
  = ___ free badges.) Pre-registered exhibitor badge
  requests in excess of the free allotment received by
  the September 7, deadline will be charged at $5.00
  per name, pre-paid only by a check drawn on a US
  Bank, credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, Diner’s

  exhibitor badges beyond your allotment.

  All pre-registered exhibitor personnel badges will be
  mailed to the OFFICIAL exhibitor contact on record
  using UPS through September 7. THESE BADGES
  SHOULD BE DISTRIBUTED BY THE CONTACT
  PRIOR TO THE SHOW.

  After September 7, you can continue to register your
  booth personnel online until 12:00pm Eastern Time,
  September 16; however, they will need to pick up
  their badges on-site.

     MOVE-IN / MOVE-OUT CREWS
     Individuals who are not EAC’s and are properly identified
     as authorized to work in the hall during specific
     times—installation, show days and dismantling—will
     receive an Installation and/or Dismantle sticker to

     the stickers instead of the official Exhibitor Badge prior
     to the Show opening. However, only your Exhibitor
     badge will get you on the show floor during show day
     hours. The Installation or Dismantle stickers can be
     obtained from a Floor Manager, Floor Management

30   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
DISPLAY MATERIAL – Defined as any item other
than the exhibitor’s product used in the booth. This
especially refers to such items as hanging signs,
graphics, light standards, signs, mirrors, display
racks, counters, display cases, planters and plants,
and similar items which are not normally sold by
the exhibitor. (See VCR’s, motion pictures, or sound
system restrictions.)

MACHINES – Machines may be exhibited in their
normal commercial form, regardless of height, but no
portion of any machine or skid may be closer than one
foot (1’) from any aisle. (See rule governing size of
booth.) The height may not be artificially increased
except that the machines may be on skids or platforms
of a reasonable size. However, all companies, which
display machines over 4’ in height, must place said
machines 5’ from the main aisle and 10’ from any
adjoining exhibits or cross aisle to avoid blocking
the view of a neighboring booth. Show Management
will review the location of these machines in the
exhibitor’s booths prior to or during the show.

BUILDING COLUMNS – If a building column falls
within the exhibit area that is restricted to 4’ height,
it may be decorated or used for display purposes,
provided:

1.   The decorative or display material is not over 12’
     high, (otherwise the column will be governed by
     the same height restrictions as display material),
     and;

2.   The diameter of the column is not increased by
     more than 24”.

LIGHTING – Show Management reserves the right to
restrict the use of glaring or irregular lighting effects,
including track lights. Light bulbs or other intense light
sources must not be visible from aisles. The use of
strobe lights or other flashing signs are not permitted.
The use of neon, fiber optic and rotating signs are
permitted as long as they are not flashing or a
distraction to neighboring booths.

All lights/standards shall be governed by the same
height restrictions as display material.


                                      EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK     31
     APPEARANCE – An exhibitor is responsible for
     keeping his booth sightly. Displaying an unfinished
     surface to neighboring booths is not permitted.
     Exhibitors must arrange to remove excessive amounts
     of trash or waste materials during show hours.

     AISLES – Aisles belong to the show and may not be
     used by an exhibitor. All business must be conducted
     within the booth and equipment must be so arranged
     that show visitors do not stand in the aisle while
     examining equipment or watching demonstrations.
     No exhibit or advertising matter will be allowed to
     extend beyond the space allotted to the exhibitor.
     No exhibitor’s product, equipment or booth
     construction may be so placed as to exclude the
     view of the neighboring exhibits from visitors
     passing through the aisles, as determined by
     Show Management.

     UTILITY CORE – Utility cores belong to the show and
     may not be used by the exhibitor for any purpose except
     connecting equipment to utilities. Any property found
     in the utility core before, during, or after the show will
     be removed without notice at the exhibitor’s expense.

     FIRE REGULATIONS – All booth materials shall be fire
     resistant. No exhibitor shall have more than one day’s
     supply of materials in booth or storage area. This is in
     compliance with the Clark County laws, ordinances,
     and regulations pertaining to health, fire prevention
     and public safety. Compliance with such laws is
     mandatory and the sole responsibility of the exhibitor.

     STORAGE – Exhibitors shall provide needed storage
     within their own booths. Supplies for more than one
     day’s requirements may be stored in the special
     area provided by Show Management. See above fire
     regulations.

     ATTIRE – In keeping with the business-like
     atmosphere of PACK EXPO, all booth personnel
     shall wear acceptable business attire or corporate
     identity uniforms. Show Management considers as
     inappropriate apparel and/or costumes not normally
     worn by most business people in offices or factories.
     This rule applies to company personnel and any exhibit
     personnel hired for the show period. Decision of Show
     Management is final in this regard.


32   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
APPROVAL – All exhibitors are required to submit their
plans in advance for approval by Show Management
if such plans include the use of unusual effects or
methods of presentations of the product.

show is to present a serious, business-like atmosphere
for the promotion or display of exhibitor products.
Activities such as games, on-site drawings/giveaways,
motorcycles, automobiles, putting games and animated
devices are allowed but must be conducted as to not
be disruptive to attendees and neighboring exhibitors.
All attention getting activities must be set back
into the booth a minimum of 5’ from all aisles and
neighboring exhibitors in order to allow sufficient
room for viewing, and under no circumstances
can such activities block aisles or a neighboring
booth. Exhibitors are responsible for the cleaning of
any excessive amount of trash or garbage in or around
the exhibitor’s booth and the exhibit hall caused by
such activities.

NOTE: Exhibitors must submit a request for approval
from Show Management regarding any of the above
activities.

Any device or activity that Show Management
considers to be objectionable, unsafe or disruptive
to neighboring exhibitors or attendees is prohibited
and will be halted. It is impossible to list every
conceivable idea which would fall under this
proscription, but included, and not limited to, would
be live performances, magicians, freaks, well known
personalities not regularly employed by the exhibitor,
shoeshine stands, photographic facilities, popcorn
machines, fortune tellers, dart games, live music,
live animals, fish tanks, golf simulators, strobe lights
and any other activities which creates an excessive
or disruptive amount of noise. Show Management,
at its sole discretion, may take any action it deems
appropriate (including, but not limited to, expulsion
from a show and/or suspension or elimination of
priority/seniority) against an exhibitor for conduct
detrimental to the show.

SALES SOLICITATIONS – An exhibitor shall not
solicit sales from another exhibitor except within his


                                     EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK    33
     own booth. Any exhibitor found to be in violation of
     this rule would be subject to expulsion of his exhibit
     from the show.

     An exhibitor shall not be permitted to solicit sales from
     another exhibitor or visitor on a “cash and carry” basis.
     Exhibitors shall be permitted to take written orders for
     a sale within the confines of his booth. Items can be
     shipped following the show.

     SIGNS – Every exhibitor must identify his booth by
     company name and location in a manner readily
     visible from the aisle. Lighted signs must conform
     to the requirements of Rule 14. “Sold To” signs are
     limited to a size of 8 ½ x 11 inches. If a machine
     or other items in a booth have been borrowed from
     another exhibitor, visitors may be referred to that other
     exhibitor by a sign, not over 8 ½ x 11 inches. This sign
     may give the name of the machine, the words “Loaned
     By” or “Supplied By” and the name and booth number
     of the other exhibitor. Products of a non-exhibitor may
     not be so identified. All other signs shall conform to the
     height limitations applicable to display material in the
     area of the booth in which the sign is used (see “Note
     Governing All Exhibits”).

     HEADROOM, UTILITIES – See space diagram for
     information on headroom. Utilities such as electricity,
     compressed air, water, drain and telephone are
     available from the LVCC, but Show Management makes
     no guarantees as to the availability of such utilities and
     the exhibitor agrees not to hold Show Management
     responsible for any failure or unavailability of utilities
     or installation personnel.

     DVDS, MOTION PICTURERS, SOUND SYSTEMS,
     NOISE – All sound systems used with demonstrations,
     motion pictures, and product presentations, etc.
     must be constructed to contain the sound. Motion
     pictures relating to the exhibitor’s product will be
     permitted, as will DVDs and self-contained audio visual
     devices, but the sound systems shall not be audible
     in a neighboring booth or from the aisle. Machines
     or devices that create excessive noise may be
     restricted to periodic operation. The decision of
     Show Management in this regard shall be final.



34   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
All motion pictures, sound systems, DVDs and
audiovisual devices shall be governed by the same
height restrictions as display materials, and must be
set back 5’ from any aisle.

Any     oversized     multi-media/image       devices
presentation must be 10 linear feet from a cross aisle
or neighboring booth.

MUSIC PERFORMANCE – The exhibitor acknowledges
that any live or recorded performance of copyrighted
music, which occurs in their booth, must be licensed
from the appropriate copyright owner or agent. The
exhibitor undertakes full responsibility for obtaining
any necessary licenses and agrees to indemnify and
hold harmless PMMI from any damages or expenses
incurred by PMMI due to the exhibitor’s failure to
obtain such licenses. Machines or devices that create
excessive noise may be restricted to periodic operation.
The decision of Show Management in this regard shall
be final.

SUPPLIES OR OPERATING EQUIPMENT –
Arrangements must be made with the official Show

Show Management.

SOUVENIRS AND REFRESHMENTS – Exhibitors may
dispense promotional items such as sales literature,
buttons, stickers, lapel pins, etc., but only from within
the confines of their booth.

NOTE: Magnets are not allowed as promotional
giveaways because they de-magnetize the
visitors’ credit cards (when carried in pocket).

Refreshments, including alcoholic beverages, may
be distributed and served from within the exhibitor’s
booth at the exhibitor’s own risk and expense. The
serving of all refreshments must be confined within

                                     EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK     35
     the exhibitor’s booth so as not to block aisles or a
     neighboring exhibitor.

     Exhibitors must comply with all applicable Federal,
     State and Local Sanitary and Safety laws and must
     comply with the Center’s Catering Department’s food
     and beverage distribution and sampling regulations.

     amount of trash or garbage in or around the exhibitor’s
     booth and the exhibit hall caused by such activities.
     The serving of popcorn and shell peanuts and the
     use of a popcorn machine are prohibited.

     distribution rights within the Las Vegas Convention
     Center. All food and/or beverage items used to generate
     traffic to a specific exhibitor booth must be purchased
     through ARAMARK’s Catering Department. Sale of
     any food or beverage product is strictly prohibited.

     Restaurants and snack bars will be located throughout
     the Convention Center, but should an exhibitor
     prefer to have refreshments brought to their booth,
     this service is provided exclusively by ARAMARK.

     Exhibitors utilizing food service in their booth for
     attendees or exhibitor staff personnel should have an
     area of space designated that is not readily visible to
     show visitors.

     PHOTOGRAPHY AND SKETCHING – Cameras of
     any type/size or videotaping equipment* may be
     carried in exhibit area by exhibitors or their official
     representatives, but under no circumstances may
     photographs or videotapes* be taken without
     expressed authority of the exhibitor concerned in each
     case. Use of photographic equipment with tripod or
     other aisle obstruction will not be permitted during
     show hours. Sketching or drawing machinery on
     display is prohibited.

     *Additional videotaping guidelines have been provided
     in your Exhibitor Service Manual, formulated to specify
     required labor and to monitor electrical safety as
     specified by the Clark County’s electrical code.

     IV. SECURITY
     CARE OF BUILDING
     No exhibitor may allow an article to be brought into,
     or permit any act to be done in the LVCC, which will
     increase the premiums or void policies of insurance
     held by PMMI. No exhibitor may permit any act by its
     employees by which the premises shall in any manner
     be marred or defaced. Exhibitor must surrender the
     space occupied by him in the same condition as at the
     commencement of occupation. Any damage done to the
     premises by the exhibitor shall be made good to PMMI
     or the buildings owners, as their interests may appear.

     GUARDING YOUR GOODS AT PACK EXPO
     Show Management (PMMI) provides 24-hour general
     exposition security, uniformed guards, and plain-
     clothes police during installation, show days and
     dismantle periods. In spite of this, exposition facilities
     such as the LVCC cannot be made totally secure
     because it is large and expansive with many doors,
     stairwells and service entrances.

     Exhibitors should be aware that Show Management,
     the LVCC, and security contractors, do not assume any
     responsibility for exhibitors’ property/protection.

     Exhibitors should include in their insurance
     policies (or have a rider attached to them) coverage
     for the shipment of property, from the period of
     their equipment/material leaving their warehouse,
     during the installation, show days and dismantle,
     and return of their property to home base. Also be
     advised that for the direct hire of local employees,
     special workmen compensation laws exist for the
     State of Nevada. Please contact your insurance
     agent for additional information.

     It is extremely important that you take every
     precaution to protect your personal and exposition-
     related property. Here are some suggested guidelines:

     1.   Take advantage of the PACK EXPO Las Vegas
          Exhibitor Security Rooms, which is a free service
          to you. Check your valuables into the Security
          Rooms before leaving the building. The Security
          Offices will be located in C-102 in the Central Hall
          and in Room S-101/102 on the lower level of the

38   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
     South Hall. Look for clearly marked signs for the
     Security Offices.

2.   Ship in locked trunks or crates.

3.   If you use cartons, be sure they are security taped
     or banded; under no circumstances should you
     mark on the outside the name or type of articles
     contained in the cartons. Consider numbering the
     boxes and keep a copy of the contents for each
     article with you.

4.   Ship with a qualified trucker or forwarder. Do not
     hire your shipper solely on price . . . make sure
     they have adequate insurance, are bonded, have
     adequate equipment and reliable references.
     (Official Show Designated Van Carrier, Air Carrier
     and Freight Forwarder can be found in Section 7
     of your Exhibitor Service Manual.)

5.   Be sure to furnish your shipping company with an
     accurate bill of lading.

6.   Installation/Dismantle days are particularly
     vulnerable times—make sure your property is
     secure before you leave your exhibit at any time.

7.   Do not leave merchandise in containers to be
     stored with “empties”.

8.   Make sure all your personnel are properly
     badged. Exhibitor badges are recognized during
     set-up, show days, and teardown. Numbered
     work badges/stickers will be provided to move-
     in/move-out workmen and show days workmen,
     and can be obtained on-site from the Show
     Management Office or from a Floor Manager.

9.   Exhibitors may want to order special security
     guards for their own individual booths from PACK
     EXPO Services (See Section 3 of your Exhibitor
     Service Manual for order form).

10. Portable items of all sorts should be kept in a
    sturdy, locked place. A temporary constructed
    office within your booth is probably not secure.
    Use a strongbox with a heavy padlock, or rent
    a security cage. These wire cages hold a great


                                     EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK    39
          deal and offer good protection. Remember to
          bring your own padlock. (See Section 3 of your
          Exhibitor Service Manual for order form).

     11. Do not leave your booth unattended at any time
         during show hours.

     12. Advise your personnel to be especially careful
         with tools and toolboxes. Remember, there are
         hundreds of workmen carrying toolboxes in and
         out of the halls—identify yours prominently to
         alert guards or deter a thief.

     13. Keep your personal possessions protected—it
         takes only a moment for a thief to steal a
         handbag or attaché case, tape recorder, lap
         top computer, suit coat, etc.

     14. Do not hide things under a table or in back of your
         display. Thieves know where to look.

     15. Carry small items to your hotel room/safe each
         night.

     16. Don’t bring your airline tickets, large amounts of
         cash or credit cards with you to the show. Take
         only what you may need that day. Put the rest in
         a safe.

     17. VCR’s, slide projectors, calculators, personal
         computers, are things most often stolen. Guard
         them!

     18. Report any suspicious actions at or about your
         booth to floor managers or security personnel
         immediately.

     19. NOTE: Parcel Passes must be submitted to
         guards for every item carried out of the LVCC
         exhibit hall. This applies to items, which you
         may carry, or materials carried by others from
         your booth. Parcel Passes are obtainable from
         the Show Manager’s office, or from the Floor
         Manager’s station located on each exhibit level.

     Preventing theft and keeping your valuables protected
     takes advance planning and communication to your
     entire PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011 booth personnel
     team . . . this should be a high priority.

     LIABILITY – PMMI shall not be liable to the exhibitor
     in any respect for any claims, losses, expenses,
     injuries, or damages arising out of or related to the

     agents, or any third person, whether based on breach
     of contract or warranty, negligence or other tort, or
     strict liability, unless directly and solely caused by the
     gross negligence or willful misconduct of PMMI. PMMI
     disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including,
     without limitation, warranties of merchantability and
     fitness for a particular purpose. PMMI shall not be liable
     to the exhibitor for any indirect, special or consequential
     damages, including lost profits, whether based upon a

     liability or other tort, even if PMMI is aware of the
     possibility thereof. Notwithstanding any other provision
     of this Agreement, the maximum liability of PMMI to
     the exhibitor will in no event exceed the lesser of (i) the
     amount of exhibit fees paid by the exhibitor to PMMI
     or (ii) $5,000; recovery of such amount shall be the

V. SHIPPING, INSTALLATION ANd
   dISMANTLE
CRATE STORAGE
Crates will be removed from the floor when the
exhibitor has placed an “Empty” sticker on them.
They will be stored and then returned as quickly as
possible after the Show closes. If you have employed
riggers to uncrate your equipment, they will take care
of storage at the time of uncrating and return the skid
and machinery crate when it is needed after the show.

TIP: Before empties are removed, stack your skids and
mark them for easy identification through color coding
or stenciling. It is hard to differentiate your skids from
the other exhibitors’. Labels often tear and are not easy
to identify. Please note: All empties, including skids,
will be removed from the facility, placed on trailers and
returned at the break of the show.

EXHIBITOR WORK HOURS
Exhibitors are allowed in the exhibit halls at 7:00am.
each day during installation, show days and dismantle
and will close at 4:00pm. Exhibit halls will stay open
longer if there are sufficient exhibitors who must work
overtime. PMMI reserves the right to close the halls and
require all personnel to leave at its discretion. Admission
before or after that time or to remain in the halls after
closing, must be approved in advance with your Floor
Manager or at the Show Management Office located in
Room S-219 on the upper level of the South Building.

EXHIBITOR SERVICE CENTERS / PACK EXPO
SERVICES / CUSTOMER ACCOUNT MANAGERS
(CAM’s)
The Exhibitor Service Centers will be located on the
Concourse Lobby of the North Building in Room N-110,
and on the show floor of the upper level and street level
of the South Building. Your Customer Account Manager
(CAM) will be located in these Centers. All services,
including labor, will be handled in the Service Center with
the exception of telecommunications and food services.

NOTE: Telecommunications is located in the lobby
of the LVCC between the North and Central Halls.
ARAMARK (food service) is located at the front of the
Central Hall (outside entrance) across from the shuttle
bus and taxi drop-off.

                                       EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK     43
           PAYING FOR SERVICES / SIGNING BILLS – All
            of the services offered by PACK EXPO Services
            (the General Contractor) cost less when ordered
            and paid for in advance. (Deadline for services
            is August 15, 2011).

            For post-show billing, it is essential that
            a company representative sign the bill,
            authorizing payment before the show closes.
            This is for your protection because it is difficult
            to settle differences after the show has closed.

            If you disagree with a bill presented for your
            signature, question it immediately. If you
            cannot come to a satisfactory understanding
            with your Customer Account Manager, see
            Show Management … but do not delay the
            dispute. Get all bills in order before the show
            is closed.

           THIRD PARTY BILLING – All exhibitors who
            request third-party billing for any services
            will receive a copy of their final invoice post
            show. In the event the third party named on
            the “Third Party Authorization Form” does not
            make payment, such charges will be presented
            to the exhibiting company, and the exhibiting
            company will have to make payment to PACK
            EXPO Services prior to the close of the show.

     INSTALLATION AND DISMANTLE OF EXHIBITS
     The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) Marshalling
     Yard is located at the corner of South Las Vegas Blvd.
     and Pebble Road. Operating hours for check-in are
     5:00am to 3:00pm every day during installation. During
     dismantle; the Marshalling Yard will be open at 4:00
     am to 3:00pm.


     Please refer to the inbound freight target schedule for
     your exact move-in date and time. The target schedule
     is located in the Exhibitor Service Manual in Section 6.

     The first day of installation for designated exhibitors is
     Tuesday, September 20, 2011.

          Exhibit halls will be open to exhibitors at 7:00am
          each day during installation, show days and
          dismantle and will close at 4:00pm. Exhibit halls will

44   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
     stay open longer if there are sufficient exhibitors
     who must work overtime. Show Management
     reserves the right to close the hall and require all
     personnel to leave at its discretion. Admission
     before or after that time or to remain in the hall
     after closing must be approved in advance with a
     Floor Manager or at the Show Management Office.

NO VISITOR will be permitted in any exhibitor’s booth
at any time during installation or dismantle of the
show or during non-show hours, unless that person is,
or is accompanied by, a person able to identify himself
positively as an employee or authorized representative
of that exhibitor’s company. (Representatives or
employees should be wearing exhibitor badges!)

All set-up personnel should bring copies of order
forms with them for verification... especially
shipping documents, electrical specifications and
labor order forms.

Dedicate sufficient time in your schedule to allow for
possible delays in set-up and teardown. All booth set-
ups must be completed by 4:00pm, Sunday, September
25, 2011. Dismantling of booths will start only after
the close of the show at 4:00pm on Wednesday,
September 28, 2011. No teardown of booths in any
manner before that hour will be permitted. Penalties
may be invoked for violation of this provision. The
exact times to complete move-out will be given in a
final exhibitor bulletin delivered to all exhibitors by
Tuesday, September 27, 2011.

Keep in mind that it can take 10 to 12 hours to
return all the empty crates and skids after the
close of the show.

 SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS – Your in-house shipping
  department or a local agent may be your best
  source in selecting a carrier you have worked with
  in the past. UPS Enterprise, J & J Motor Service
  and Airways Freight have been named the official
  carriers for the show. See Section 7 of your Exhibitor
  Service Manual for full details on their service.

If you ship to PACK EXPO Services Advance
Warehouse, the cut-off date is on or before
Thursday, September 15, 2011.

                                     EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK     45
     If you ship to the LVCC, observe your target date and
     make sure the carrier checks into the marshalling
     yard before 2:00pm to avoid overtime charges. If your
     carrier delivers on any day other than your specified
     target date, it must wait until scheduled vehicles are
     unloaded first. This may increase your chances of
     overtime charges.

     Take advantage of the 30-day storage at PACK EXPO
     Services advance warehouse. The warehouse will
     receive shipments Monday through Friday during
     the hours of 8:00am to 3:00pm. See Section 6 of the
     Exhibitor Service Manual for full details.

     1.   On your assigned target date, we strongly
          suggest you have a representative present at the
          show that will:

          a) Mark the floor before product arrives to indicate
             exactly where the machines will be placed;

          b) Be present during machinery spotting; and

          c) Advise the rigging labor on the use of the
             exhibitor’s pre-rigging methods and accessories.

     NOTE: In order to save money, machinery should
     arrive and remain on skids.

     2.   If you ship on your own truck, the bill of lading
          must reflect accurate weight (all shipments
          must have a certified weight ticket, both empty
          and full) so that proper unloading equipment is
          available to unload your machines.

     3.   If possible, disconnect large control cabinets for
          safety in unloading and spotting.

     4.   Pre-rig machinery whenever possible. Rigging
          equipment such as slings, hooks, bars, etc., must
          be shipped with each machine and attached to the
          machine itself. If this is not possible, then clearly
          identify the pre-rigging equipment by the machine
          model numbers and ship it on the same truck.
          Following the unloading process be sure to store
          your unloading tools at the PACK EXPO Security
          Offices located in both the Central and South
          Exhibit Halls. (Look for signs on the locations.)


46   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
 OUTBOUND FREIGHT – As with your inbound
  freight, outbound shipments have been assigned a
  target date. Outbound shipping is NOT automatic.
  You should make arrangements for your Outbound
  Shipping before the show.

International shippers must make certain that their
customs broker has been notified of the target date
and that all paperwork is in order.

Bills of lading should be turned into the Exhibitor
Service Center after the dismantle of your exhibit
and/or machinery is complete.

The Marshalling Yard opens at 4:00am for outbound
shipments. All vehicles are handled on a first-come
first-served basis. Drivers must report in at the
marshalling yard before 2:00pm on the assigned target
date. At that time, drivers will receive bills of lading for
their loads. Again, it will be necessary to line up at the
proper building to load out.

Please keep in mind that all shipments must be removed
from the LVCC by 5:00pm Saturday, October 1, 2011.

If your carrier does not arrive on time, PACK EXPO
Services may be forced to assign another carrier
to expedite removal of show equipment from the
exhibit hall.

NOTE TO EXHIBITORS: If the carrier’s name listed
on the outbound Material Handling Agreement (Bill
of Laden) DOES NOT MATCH the name of the carrier
that checks into the marshalling yard to pick up your
company’s freight – IT WILL NOT BE RELEASED.
Please make sure there is a phone number where you
can be reached to help solve this problem.

 SIMPLE SHIPPING GUIDELINES

  •     With proper planning, unnecessary surcharges
        can be avoided. Make certain your shipping
        department receives the information in the
        Exhibitor Service Manual.

  •     Pre-rig machinery whenever possible. Most
        handling systems used in plants are adaptable
        to the show.


                                       EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK      47
       •    Take advantage of cost-saving incentives.
            Schedule your trucks to arrive on your
            assigned target date/time. All shipments must
            arrive by your target time on your target date.

       •    When your truck arrives at the marshalling
            area, remind your driver to check in at the
            desk.

       •    Consolidate—put smaller items into one large
            crate.

       •    Ship machines uncrated or on skids that will
            remain under the machines during the show,
            if possible.

       •    Machines can be shipped on open-top and
            open-side trucks with top and sides removed
            before arrival at the exhibition hall.

       •    Be present at time of delivery. Machines that
            do not require uncrating, un-skidding or that
            will remain on skids will be spotted at no
            additional charge.

       •    Be sure your materials are insured from
            the time they leave your plant until they are
            returned after the show. Familiarize yourself
            with the “Limits of Liability.”

       •    Make sure your on-site personnel have copies
            of all pertinent correspondence, bill of lading,
            insurance carrier, international forwarder, etc.

       •    Remember, when in doubt, call PACK EXPO
            Services. They have staff with many years of
            experience that can assist you in planning and
            shipping your machinery.

     PACKAGES (SMALL)
     Small packages, cartons and envelopes may be
     consigned c/o PACK EXPO SERVICES and sent directly

PARCEL PASSES
Security is one of the major challenges at any
exposition. For your protection, a record is kept of
every item that leaves the exhibit hall.

Guards at the doors are instructed not to permit any
items to be taken out unless a parcel pass, signed by
a floor manager or a member of the floor manager’s
office staff, is turned in. Please cooperate with this
rule. For items, which you will carry from the hall every
day, you may obtain a permanent pass at the Floor
Manager’s office.

Also, remember that if you give a workman or local
booth attendant some item that he will carry from the
hall, your authorization is required. Since this usually
occurs only during dismantling, full details concerning
the proper procedure will be included in the official
dismantling bulletin to be distributed by Tuesday,
September 27, 2011.

ANSWERS TO COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q What happens if my truck shows up early or late?

A Those trucks checking in early or late, not on their
  assigned target date, will be held in the marshalling
  area until all trucks targeted for that day are
  unloaded. All efforts will be made to unload off-
  target shipments on straight time. If the exhibitor
  is present, he will be given the option of unloading
  on overtime.

Q What if I do not want to use the preferred
  carriers listed in the exhibitor service manual?

A Exhibitors have the option of using any carrier
  they choose for the transportation of their freight.


                                     EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK     49
       However, it is important to pick a carrier with trade
       show experience and make certain they are aware
       of your target date and time.

     Q Can I use my own riggers/labor to install my
       machinery/exhibit?

     A The LVCC is a union facility. Any work performed
       in the building must be done by Official Contractor
       union labor. Independent rigging companies may
       perform work on your machinery outside the LVCC
       facility. An exhibitor also has the option of hiring
       an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC). You must
       follow instructions in Section 1 of your Exhibitor
       Service Manual.

     Q Why does my truck have to go to the marshalling
       area?

     A It is the staging area for all traffic coming into the
       facility. At that point, all paperwork is checked for
       accuracy and an organized traffic flow into and out
       of the loading area is maintained.

     Q What are the operation hours of the marshalling
       yard?

     A The operating hours are 5:00am to 3:00pm for check-
       in, and 4:00am to 3:00pm for outbound. However, the
       yard is open 24 hours a day for truck arrivals.

     Q What is done on my target date?

     A The inbound target date is when you need to deliver
       your freight to the LVCC. Those exhibitors with
       multi-loads may be assigned more than one target
       date. Your freight will be unloaded on your target
       date and placed in your booth. Your outbound target
       date is when your exhibit and machinery needs to
       be dismantled, packed and ready to be loaded.

       The Material Handling Agreement (Bill of Laden)
       needs to be turned in when all machinery and
       materials are packed the day before your outbound
       target date and turned into our Exhibitor Service
       Center. Your carrier must also have checked in
       before 2:00 p.m. on your outbound target date in
       order to be loaded at the straight time rates.


50   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
NOTE TO EXHIBITORS: If the carrier’s name listed
on the outbound Material Handling Agreement (Bill
of Laden) DOES NOT MATCH the name of the carrier
that checks into the marshalling yard to pick up your
company’s freight—IT WILL NOT BE RELEASED.
Please make sure there is a phone number where we
can reach you to help solve this problem.

Q Where do I go for riggers?

A There will be a rigging desk located at each Exhibitor
  Service Center. IMPORTANT—Advance orders
  for riggers are considered a tentative order.
  You need to confirm all labor by 2:00pm prior to
  the day needed. This can be done at the Exhibitor
  Service Desks. Those orders not confirmed by
  2:00pm the previous day can’t be guaranteed labor
  by 8:00am the next day.

Q Why does my truck have to wait?

A After checking into the marshalling yard, all trucks
  are put in line. On a typical day by 8:00am, it is not
  uncommon to have checked in 150 trucks. Due to
  the dock space, the number of unloading crews,
  types of freight coming in, and booth accessibility, it
  can take 2-3 hours once a truck has reached a dock
  before it is unloaded.

Q How long does it take to get my crates/skids
  back?

A At the close of the show, crates for display materials
  will be returned after the aisle carpet is removed.
  Aisle carpet removal will take approximately one
  hour. Crate return will take between 10-12 hours.
  Skids will not be returned until you are ready for
  your riggers. During installation, stack your skids,
  label, and mark them with your company’s color for
  easy identification.

Q What color are the standard booth draperies and
  aisle carpet?

A Central Building – Blue Aisle Carpet and Grey
  Drape; South Building – PACK EXPO and CPP
  EXPO Exhibitors will have Blue Aisle Carpet with
  Grey Drape. NOTE: The Showcase of Packaging


                                     EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK     51
       Innovations® will have Black Carpet with White
       Drape; the Brand Zone will have Tuxedo Carpet

       Booth drapery is provided at no cost to you if you
       use the show color and will automatically be set
       for all those exhibitors with in-line and perimeter
       wall booths. Exhibitors with island and peninsula
       booths must contact their CAM to order booth drape
       by August 15. In addition, standard booth signs
       must also be ordered by August 15, 2011.

     Q May our company identification sign hang from
       the ceiling?

     A Yes. However, all hanging signs are governed by
       the PACK EXPO Las Vegas Rules and Regulations.
       Please see Section 1 of your Exhibitor Service
       Manual—Rules and Regulations—for complete
       details.

     Q Will my rental carpet be installed before my
       machines arrive?

     A Every attempt, if so advised, will be made to lay
       carpets ordered in advance of September 20, 2011
       prior to target dates assigned if all utilities have
       been installed.

     Q Is there any additional charge to cut carpets
       around a column? My machinery?

     A We encourage exhibitors to place their machinery
       on top of the already installed carpet. We are able
       to do this because of the extra thick poly covering
       provided for this type of show. If rental carpet is
       provided, there is no additional charge to cut around
       columns. Any carpet cut around machines will be
       charged. Please contact your CAM for details.
       Advance order discounts apply.




52   EXHIBITOR TIP BOOK
Q Can I hang my own signs in the booth?

A Exhibitors may hang their own corporate logo,
  small pictures and graphics when such items are
  designed to be attached by pre-set velcro strips,
  permanently mounted hooks or signs. No tools
  should be required to hang signs and the total time
  to attach signs should not exceed one hour.

Q What happens to my rental exhibit graphics
  after the show is over?

A Unless prior arrangements are made, the graphics
  will be cleared from the panels and disposed.

Q What happens if I want to rent a Modular Display
  Unit, but my space is not 10’ x 10’, 10’ x 20’, or
  20’ x 20’?

A Call PACK EXPO Services and speak to your
  Customer Account Manager (CAM) about designing
  a display to work within your space and budget.
  PACK EXPO Services (PES) will adapt the exhibit to
  your space and adjust the price accordingly.

Q If I rent a display from PACK EXPO Services, do I
  need to order labor to set up or tear down?

A No. Each package is turn-key with labor setting the
  exhibit before you arrive and dismantling after you
  leave.

Q Can I have a rental booth designed that will
  meet my particular needs and have an identity
  all its own?

A Absolutely. PACK EXPO Service’s in-house design
  department will customize an exhibit to meet your
  needs and represent your company in a first class
  marketing environment. Call (972) 751-9400 and
  ask to speak to your Customer Account Manager.

an exhibit, they should carry positive company
identification, such as a medical identification card or
payroll stub.

This rule prohibits the utilization of workers hired from
a non-union agency or company.

To secure labor, please utilize the labor forms in

     may not be permitted access to the loading dock/
     freight door areas.

     GENERAL INFORMATION – Union labor at all levels
     has been instructed to refrain from expressing any
     grievances to or directly challenging the practices of

     break. Any attempts to solicit a gratuity by an employee
     for any service, should be reported immediately to
