Show Site Work Rules

Union Information

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.

Material Handling

Exhibitors may perform their own drayage, or material handling, provided that they use their own bonafide company employees and their own hand operated equipment to move exhibit material to their booths. Please note that exhibitors are limited to using non-mechanical equipment. Fork trucks, pallet jacks and other power equipment may be operated by the official contractor only using local union personnel.

Exhibit Set Up and Dismantle

Exhibitors are allowed to set up and/or dismantle their own booths, provided that they use their own company employees. Salesman, clerks and mechanics are all acceptable. Exhibitors are not allowed to bring in outside labor of any kind except for the above mentioned. Exhibitors who wish to employ display houses or exhibit manufacturers to install or dismantle their booth may have supervision of labor sent in from their supplier. Workers of this type cannot physically erect the booth, unless they are members of the appropriate Local Union. Please be sure to submit the required notification/authorization forms (Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Form) provided in this manual.

Flameproofing

The fire department has strict regulations governing trade shows. All electrical wiring must conform to National Electric Code Safety Rules. In addition, all draperies, decorations and materials must be flame proofed in accordance with local fire codes.
The use of decorations incapable of being flame proofed is not permitted. These include paper or those products with acetate cellulose or nitrate cellulose contents, decorative greens containing pitch and polyethylene artificial floral decorations. Exhibitor’s products displayed for technical presentation are exempt from the above rules.

Gratuities

Our work rules prohibit the SOLICITATION OR ACCEPTANCE of tips in cash, product or gifts in kind by any employee (union or non-union). Our employees are paid appropriate wages denoting professional status, therefore tipping of any kind is not allowed.
