To assist you in planning your participation in your show, we are certain you will appreciate knowing in advance that union labor will be required for certain aspects of your exhibit handling.
Teamsters handle all freight inside the exhibit hall. They unload all trucks or vehicles, deliver the materials to your booth, and remove and reload materials at the close of the show.
Exhibitors may carry their own materials in/out of the exhibit facility without the use of flat trucks, dollies, motorized equipment, etc.
Members of this union claim jurisdiction over all set up and dismantling of exhibits, including signs and laying of carpet. This does not apply to the unpacking and placement of your merchandise. The exhibitor may use their own full time employees, as long as they do not employ the use of power tools.
Members of these unions claim jurisdiction on the operation of material handling equipment, including unloading and reloading, and handling of empty containers. Exhibitors may bring their freight in through the front doors or through the loading area, provided that they do not use motorized carts.
