  2. Take advantage of our Hanging Sign+ Packages! See the FAQ for details to see if you qualify for this all-inclusive service.
  3. Be sure to complete the following information below to avoid delays or additional cost:
    • Send your sign to the GES advance warehouse. Please have the sign in its own container or box separate from your other freight and clearly labeled HANGING SIGN.
    • Make sure you are providing the correct dimensions and weight of your sign. This information is very important also when selecting the Hanging Sign+ Package that applies to you. If the incorrect package is selected, or falls outside of the description, actual time and materials will be billed onsite accordingly. The package price will not apply.
    • Elevation - what is your desired elevation of your sign (Number of feet from floor to top of the sign) This must follow the Show Organizer rules and regulations.
    • Is your sign electrical or non-electrical? Please be sure to select the correct Hanging Sign+ Package that applies to avoid delays on installation. (Rotating motors are considered electrical signage)
    • Pick Points - number of structural pick points on the sign.
    • Floorplan - you must submit a floorplan indicating placement of your sign within the booth to include adjacent booth numbers for orientation.
    • Approval - When applicable, make sure you have submitted for approval to show management/GES. This information will be stipulated in the GES online ordering site/Show Management tab.
    • Select a date and time for installation/removal of your sign. You also have the option to select "OK to Proceed" without your supervision. Completed instructions, sign delivered to our advance warehouse and all hardware must be provided, and GES' goal will be to hang your sign prior to your arrival or selected date and time.
  4. Structural Engineered drawings - if applicable or requested by GES, you may need to provide a stamped drawing indicating the weight and location of the rigging points. GES reserves the right to not hang any signage/structure that in our opinion is not deemed structurally sound.
