We are happy to assist event planners, vendors and exhibitors with small show shipping and receiving needs. In order to provide the most efficient level of service possible, we have created a separate process for shipping and receiving for events with vendors numbering less than 20. For shows with more than 20 vendors, contact your show decorator for drayage options. Please visit our Shipping/Receiving page for details and for more information about our advanced shipping policies for meeting and event planners.
