Important Update from GES for Exhibitor Set-Up Day on Monday, October 17th

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the move-in times for the PGA Buying Show have been condensed for this year. GES will be setting up during the morning move-in hours 8am – 12pm. GES will do their best to set-up priority areas first, but this push will be limited. If you are moving-in between 8am and 12pm, please be aware that there will be delays during setup.

With this latest update, all Exhibitors that DO NOT require the loading dock apron and plan to walk their booth items in from their vehicle, we ask that you do not arrive at the venue for set-up until AFTER 2:00pm if possible. We understand that this may not work with your schedule, however, we are trying to prevent delays for everyone during the move-in process.

Book Your Move in Time
If you require the loading dock apron, please ensure you book a time ASAP using the Voyage Control System. Please refer to the previous email sent to you for this to book your time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Trevor Rioux by email ([email protected]).
