Delivery within 3 days prior to event date would be highly recommended since limited storage space. On event day, each exhibitor has to collect these items from the Shipping and Receiving Department at the hotel.

Outbound shipping*: Service charge on top of shipping charge would be incurred for all outbound shipment by Hotel Shipping and Receiving Department. Due to limited storage spaces, we would suggest exhibitors handle their own outbound shipping on their own and arrange all outgoing delivery to be picked up on Tuesday, August 6 at 3:00 PM.
