What are the rules for unloading and setting up displays?

If you’re bringing your display with you by car, truck, or trailer, and have a lot to unload, please see the Convention Center’s staging, loading, and unloading guidelines.

Exhibitors are allowed to set up their own booth display, but are not allowed to do any rigging or use their own forklift. Equipment and labor may be ordered in the Exhibitor Kit, or at the showsite service desk. If exhibitors want a third party other than Fern Expo to help with set up of their booth, they must complete and submit the Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Approval Form included in the Exhibitor Kit (available first of January).

Fern Expo and the Oregon Convention Center need set up plans from any exhibitor with displays over 3,000 pounds.
