October 26-28, 2021
Rosemont, IL
We are getting really excited about coming together again as a community at The ASSEMBLY Show on October 26-28, 2021 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. These exhibitor bulletins are intended to remind you of important information you'll need as you design your booth and prepare for the event.

At a little over 3 months away, we want to make sure you are ready and put your best foot forward at one of the first in-person tradeshows for our industry.

 
Mike Mlady will be returning as the exhibit hall floor manager and will be available to assist you with any logistical questions you might have about your exhibit space at The ASSEMBLY Show. Please don't hesitate to reach out to him directly for assistance at 630-248-7181 or mike@theassemblyshow.com.
 
IMPORTANT EXHIBITOR INFORMATION & LOGISTICS
Transporting Your Booth Freight
Below are some helpful things to keep in mind when shipping and transporting freight to the convention center, either directly or in advance to the RES warehouse.

Don't forget - your exhibit space fees include ALL onsite drayage costs - but only if you ship direct to the convention center (not in advance to the warehouse).

All Vehicles Must First Check-in at the RES Marshaling Yard.
Whether you will be shipping your booth freight via a company owned truck, a 3rd party ground/air shipping company, or in a personally-owned vehicle, for the move-in of the show, all direct shipments to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center must first check-in at the RES Marshaling Yard. The same procedure applies for move-out, i.e., all vehicles must first check-in at the marshaling yard before coming to the convention center to pick-up freight.

Hiring a Ground/Air Shipper
If your company has a preferred shipper that you use to send your products to customers, that would be the most logical shipper to contact about arranging shipping of your booth freight to and from The ASSEMBLY Show. However, many exhibitors will hire a 3rd party shipping company to transport their booth materials to and from the show. Make sure whatever shipper you select is licensed, bonded, and insured. The shipper should be able to provide you with a tracking and/or "pro" number, so you can track your shipment. The shipper should also provide you with a certified weight document/certificate indicating the number of pieces and weight of the shipment. We recommend that you contact the following official show carriers to receive a quote.

Air — Airways Freight 1-800-643-3525 | www.airwaysfreight.com
