POVs (Personal Operated Vehicles) at the Colorado Convention Center

The Colorado Convention Center and the local Union have strict rules regarding unloading of freight at the loading docks. Anything being delivered on site at the loading docks must be unloaded and delivered by a local Union worker. This is primarily for the safety of all, as the docks are shared with other halls and forklift traffic is high.
Exhibitors are strongly encouraged to ship to the advanced warehouse listed in the exhibitor kit (kit will be available soon). Your freight will be waiting at your booth upon your arrival. 
Exhibitors are allowed to hand carry their own freight in as long as they bring in through the front doors and not the docks. 

Fire Extinguishers

We are requesting all exhibitors cooking in their booth to have one ten-pound B.C. extinguisher ready in their space.
Dish washing passes will be available at the back of hall F on the trade show floor for $25 each at the following times:
  • Monday, April 22: 12-6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 23: 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 24: 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
The Colorado Convention Center (CCC) will be providing the electricity for booths. They also offer water and drainage services. All payments will be processed directly through the CCC. The order deadline is April 5.
You have two methods for submitting your order:
