Exhibitor Set-up Hours

Monday, April 24, 2023
3 p.m. – 5 p.m.

If you come to set up on Monday, You Must Use the Loading Docks and Entrances. Please see additional loading and unloading information below.

Estimated Attendance: 3,000


You must use the loading docks if you set up on Monday even if you are carrying boxes or have small roller suitcases.  The loading docks are located behind the convention center and may be accessed by Holt Boulevard.  See map here.  The dock entrances will be open during set up hours both days. You will be given a wristband when you enter the dock area whether you are walking or driving.

On Tuesday morning if you use the main public entrances, you will need to bring or show the NACAC exhibitor pass to bypass the bag search line. Your exhibitor parking pass will be included in your exhibitor emails.  The person who registered for the fair will receive the emails.  The pass is not for the general public. You may also enter through the docks on Tuesday morning.

**If you have the NACAC exhibitor pass or a wrist band from the Convention Center, you will not need your bags and materials searched. You can go through the expedited line.  If you don’t have a wristband or the pass, you will need to go through the metal detectors and have your belongings searched. This is a requirement from the Convention Center.  Security at the entrances will not be able to make exceptions for those without a pass or wristband.

Please allow enough time to get through security lines and metal detectors on the morning of the fair, if necessary.  *Your bags and boxes may be subject to search upon entering.
