*CONFIRMED START TIME EXPLAINED: Due to contractual terms with the host hotel, the official start time for exhibitor move-in was effectively up in the air... until now!

Exhibitors setting up on Tuesday, November 14, may do so from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.

Shipping & Receiving 
Exhibitors are strongly advised to ship their booth materials to Southern Exhibition Services (our exhibit hall management partner) Advance Warehouse for delivery to and from the host hotel. Shipments may begin on Friday, October 13, 2023. Shipments received on or before Monday, October 23, 2023, are eligible to receive a 20 percent discount on prepaid orders (only). The deadline for shipments sent to the Advance Warehouse is Friday, November 3, 2023. 

If an exhibitor chooses to ship to the hotel directly the hotel staff advises that shipments will not be accepted more than 3 days before the show as they do not have storage of delivered items.  Note also that it is IMPERATIVE that exhibitors include their company name, dates of the show, and the name of the show--A&WMA's 2023 Air Quality Measurements Conference--on each and every package shipped. It can be extremely difficult to identify boxes that include only the shipper's name absent the additional shipper identifiers.

In addition, the hotel does not accept anything over 100 lbs. 
Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the Exhibit Hall. 
A garage door leading to the exhibit hall will be pulled down at the end of each day. However, neither the hotel nor A&WMA are responsible for any lost or stolen items. Exhibitors are encouraged to remove valuables prior to leaving the exhibit hall for the evening.
