Floor Plan & Booth Assignments
Directions to Waterfront Conference Center Loading Dock
Once at the loading dock – exhibitors will need to load in through the loading ramp. Ocean Rental Exposition Services (ORES) will assist any exhibitors that need help unloading. Security will be scheduled for the dock to maintain traffic. Once unloaded, the exhibitors will need to take the freight elevators to the 2nd floor where the exhibits will be taking place in prefunction and in the Avalon ballrooms. The freight elevators are in the same location as the loading dock/ramp. If any exhibitors ship directly to the hotel, they will incur handling and delivery fees.
