Fern Exposition Services


Please visit the onsite Fern Expo Service desk for any questions regarding your booth, set-up, services, and any last-minute requests.


Unloading Vehicles


Load-in and load-out must be done through the designated loading dock area. Contact Shelley Frank at Fern Expo for additional information. 

Load-in and load-out through the hotel lobby is strictly limited to hand-carried items.

Materials that require the use of two-wheeled (or more) apparatuses must go through the designated loading dock area. Passenger elevators and escalators are designed for passenger use and not intended to carry heavy loads. 

Fern Expo will be there to assist with move-in. Please note that the loading docks may be busy at times and you may need to wait to unload.


Security


ASTA is employing several security measures during the conference, including hiring security personnel for overnight protection of the exhibit hall and badge checkers during show hours.

Exhibitors will be allowed access to the hall 30 minutes prior to the hall opening to refresh their booths. We ask that you close up and vacate the hall 30 minutes after the close of the hall so we can properly secure it.

Please note: No one will be allowed access to the exhibit floor after hours. If you need to access equipment or materials for a session, please plan accordingly.
