Am I required to schedule labor to set up my booth?
Stetson and Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center personnel MUST handle all labor for installation and dismantle of trade shows and exhibits.

Labor can be ordered in advance by completing the Labor Form located in your Exhibitor Kit.

What is material handling (also referred to as drayage)?
Material handling is the process of unloading your freight boxes from your shipping carrier, either at the warehouse or show site, delivering it to your booth, storing your empty containers, returning of your empty containers at the close of show, and then reloading your freight back onto your shipping carrier. All services are provided by Stetson Convention Services and can be discussed on site. Exhibitors are also permitted to carry in what one person can hand carry through the front door, in one trip, without the use of hand trucks or dollies.

How is drayage determined?
Drayage charges are based off the weight from your inbound shipment. Please note, the heavier the boxes, the higher the charges.

Do I need to order carpet for my booth?
The Exhibit Hall is not carpeted, however the aisles will be carpeted in black. For those exhibitors who are interested in carpet rental, please complete the order form in the Exhibitor Kit. Carpet is a great way to improve the comfort of your space and enhance your branding.
