SHIPPING AND RECEIVING / Arriving with Packages

Since the 25th anniversary event will be held in a non-traditional event space, there is limited space on-site for storage and shipping. Each vendor is being asked to ship their supplies to their local hotel, residence, or facilities, and bring it with them for set-up at 1:00 PM on Thursday, February 21. If other accommodations are needed, please email rebecca.younk@associated-hearing.com. 

When driving and transporting packages, use the loading dock entrance to bring packages into the building to avoid bringing them through the brewery lobby.

Return Shipment

After the Technology Expo, the space will be reset for our Dinner and Awards Banquet. In light of this, exhibitors will need to tear down and pack all equipment and supplies immediately following the Expo. Supplies will be taken down to the loading down for a scheduled FedEx pickup.
