Where to Park and Unload Freight
If you are driving your own vehicle and booth freight to The ASSEMBLY Show, assuming your first stop is to unload, please read the following.
Cars, SUV’s, and/or Vans (no trucks or trailers), can go directly to Hall A overhead door for unloading. Please see page 72 of the Exhibitor Service Manual for “Freight Check-in Procedures” and a map of how to get to the Hall A overhead door.
Straight trucks, larger vehicles, or vehicles with trailers would check in at the RES Marshaling Yard prior to going to the convention center and being unloaded. Directions to the RES Marshaling Yard are on Page 72 of the Exhibitor Service Manual.

Once you are finished unloading (and before you begin setting up your booth), you will need to park your vehicle. Parking for all vehicles (with the exception of tractor trailers) can be accommodated at the convention center parking garage, which is located on Williams street directly across from the convention center near the Doubletree Hotel and Gibson’s Restaurant. Straight trucks and larger vehicles, and or vehicles with trailers would park on Level 1. The cost is $15 per day (24 hour period). Please note, there are not “in and out” privileges, i.e., each time you go in and out you will pay.

Exhibitors can purchase a parking pass at the RES Service Center (located inside the exhibit hall) for the duration of the move-in, show and move-out for $40.00, to include in and out privileges. You can purchase the parking pass after you initially park and go back to the exhibit hall to set-up your booth. There is a Sky Bridge connecting the garage to the convention center or you can simply walk across the street.

If you have any questions about parking, you can contact
