Make sure every item / box is very well labelled - on the outside of each box it needs to say your company name, your contact name, and your booth # (which we will have in April).  Someone from the Saltscapes team will deliver them to your booth. 

For boxes you wish to have sent back when the Expo is over, you need to fill out the weigh bills, have your shipment all ready and the courier called with arrangements to pick them up on Monday, April 24th. Saltscapes Expo only has the space until Monday at 12pm, so they need to be collected before then.   

Requirements for Forklifts / Scissorlifts / Hanging Banners or Signs from Ceiling:

Should you require items to be hung, large exhibits requiring forklifts for transport, etc., please be advised exhibitors must order this service in advance to ensure we are able to accommodate the request.

Contact Sandie Currie at scurrie@saltscapes.com to make these arrangements PRIOR to the show set-up days.
