The Assembly Show | October 22-24,2019 | Rosemont,IL
Dear ASSEMBLY Show Exhibitor,

Welcome to Volume 3 of The ASSEMBLY Show Exhibitor Bulletins. The purpose of this bulletin is to keep you up-to-date on information regarding The ASSEMBLY Show 2019, October 22-24, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
IMPORTANT EXHIBITOR INFORMATION & LOGISTICS
 
Height Restrictions & Hanging Banners
Hanging signs and banners are only permitted for Island or Peninsula Booths, 20x20' or larger.
The maximum height limitation on hanging signs/banners for The ASSEMBLY Show is 16ft., meaning the top of a banner/sign may not exceed 16ft. Most banners/signs are hung 11' from the ground to the bottom of the banner. Further information on hanging signs can be found in the Exhibitor Services Manual (pages 66-67).

For additional information regarding height restrictions for specific booths please contact Dave Houston at dhouston@rosemontexpo.com or 847-993-4654.
Transporting Your Booth Freight
Whether you ship your booth freight in advance to the RES warehouse, or directly to convention center, following are some helpful things to keep in mind.

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 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, boned, 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.

Ground — YRC 1-800-531-3976 | www.yrc.com
Air — Airways Freight 1-800-643-3525 | www.airwaysfreight.com
