All Indications Call For a Great Show, And We Are Excited To Be In Chicago.
A Few Notes:
- We rate LIGHTFAIR, Freeman, and the Union an A+ for the move in and set up: Your humble editor has talked to about 20 companies so far and we have heard only praise. A few companies volunteered that it was their best move-in/setup in years. One union boss boasted to me that they always do a great job, but they were told to be especially nice to our group because they want us back. We have seen several companies dropping equipment, booths, and literature at the front door with no hassles.
- Free WiFi in the show: And it is easy to connect and has been relatively fast. It will likely slow down once the pass is full, but so far so good.
- Exhibitor’s Bill of Rights: To ensure fairness to exhibitors, McCormick Place has developed an Exhibitor’s Bill Of Rights.
Employees, of 6 months or more, may perform work on booths of any size, even using power tools.
Exhibitors may deliver materials using non-commercial vehicles.
Exhibitors may unload materials using non-electric and non-hydraulic equipment.
