Q: When can I load into the Versailles Ballroom, Davos, Alpine I & II, Zermatt, Lugano, and Bern boardrooms?
A: Load in can begin 7 a.m. Thursday February 1, 2018.
Q: I am an exhibitor with a trading room or tables, and want moved to a different room or different tables. What are the chances to being moved?
A: Granting request for location moves can be quite tricky for show management. First, we don’t just yank someone from their spot just to accommodate someones wishes. The most common reason for a move is after an exhibitor “drops out” of the show, then we can plug someone else into that spot, which opens another spot, and so on. However, as we get close to the show dates, due to advertising and brochure publication deadlines, the potential moves are difficult to make and guarantee the inaccuracy of published materials. We can, and do move people, but it is not easy. When we do, we usually get someone who is elated, and someone who is upset with us.
