What if a non-official Contractor contacts me? Can I use them?
Companies not selected by the NRA may reach out to you in order to solicit your business. This is happening most aggressively with housing companies. Please note that ConferenceDirect is our exclusive housing provider. If you provide your credit card information to any other unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged, but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in Dallas.
Who are the main contractors? What do they provide?
Global Experience Specialists (GES) is the Official Service Contractor for the Show, providing material handling, furniture rental, carpeting, labor and more.
The Convention Center provides electric.
Smart City provides telephone and internet.
You may browse all these services in the Exhibitor Manual, which is sent you when you have paid in full.
What is Material Handling?
Material Handling is the moving of materials from point A to point B. Whether your materials are sent in advance to the Service Contractor's warehouse or directly to Show site, they still need to get to your booth after the carrier drops them off. Paying for handling entitles you to have your freight brought to your booth from the loading dock, empty containers stored during the Show, empty containers returned to your booth at the close of the Show, and your freight carried back to the loading dock and loaded onto the carrier at the conclusion of the Show. Then you arrange for a carrier to pick up your exhibit materials for transport to the next destination. There is usually a 200 pound minimum per shipment charge for material handling.
Can I bring my booth materials using my personal vehicle?
Yes, you are able to drive your personal vehicle directly to a loading dock to unload during POV Move-in time (Thursday, May 3, 8:00am-2:00pm). You must be able to unload your vehicle within 20 minutes to qualify for this time.
