EXAMPLE Exhibitor Check-In & Set Up for 2019


Please have a member of your team check-in as soon as you arrive at the Exhibitor Check-in table to be hosted in front of the Student Center entrance as you come in from Parking Lot B. Check- in will be open from 11:00AM to 12:00PM. Exhibitors who need more time for set up should arrive as early as possible, whereas exhibitors who have less set up can arrive closer to opening. We will be opening the Expo promptly at 1:00PM with a broadcast announcement throughout the entire event.


If you are planning to bring a truck or other vehicle to help you unload or as part of your exhibit, please contact Nadia Compton, at ncompton@sacSTEMfair.org or at 916.441.3150 to arrange accommodations.


Set Up & Where to Unload 


All exhibitors should enter the grounds via the Myrtle Avenue into Parking Lots A and B (see Directions and Parking). Look for directional signage to lead you to exhibitor parking, and check-in. If you need help bringing in your materials, please let check-in know.


Scheduled Move-In Times

A limited number of exhibitors may be required to move in during certain hours. Those companies involved will be notified in advance to make arrangements. If you have specific needs due to the size or structure of your exhibit, you must contact us to make arrangements for your move-in. If you have not made arrangements, you may not be able to install part or all of your displays until after other exhibitors have moved in.


Tear Down    

Exhibits must be removed from the grounds by 6:00 PM, Saturday, March 25. Items remaining in place on the grounds after this time will be removed by the volunteers and may be disposed of.


Official release time is 5:00PM. Staff will direct the official close time based on conditions to ensure the safety of attendees and exhibit workers. Please do not begin to dismantle your booth until the official announcement is made.


Exhibitor vehicles are not allowed to approach the building prior to 6:00 PM (unless previously arranged) so that attendees can leave without being impeded by vehicular traffic. Exhibitors are welcome to carry out any items through the regular entrances after they have been released.



Staffing your exhibit is an important element of booth planning. Fortunately, getting your staff registered and securing your registration won't be as complicated as deciding who is on the exhibiting team!
