Material Handling


All transactions on work of this type are between the Material Handling Contractor and the exhibitor.  In case an exhibitor’s representative is not present, Show Management reserves the right to order his equipment and/or material to be moved from the receiving door to the exhibitor’s area.  The charge for this service will be invoiced to the exhibitor by the official Material Handling Contractor.

N.B. Capacity of show forklift trucks is 5,000 lbs.  Exhibitors with heavier equipment (material handling required for 5,000 lbs and over per piece) should speak directly with:

Hand Carried Material

If you do not require a forklift to move your materials to/from the show, push dollies will be available at the loading doors.

Unload your vehicle as quickly as possible and return your dolly to the loading door.  A crew is available if you require help.  (Check with the Official Show Contractor – GES for applicable rates.)

Crate Storage

Empty containers will be picked up, stored and returned to you as a complimentary service from SME. Forklift operators will be working as rapidly as possible; we ask that you please be patient as there are many exhibitors to be serviced.

Carefully identify every empty case, skid, crate, or carton you wish returned to you by completing and affixing the proper storage labels.  Storage labels are available from the Loading Dock and at the Show Office.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL STORAGE WILL BE PLACED ON THE LOADING DOCKS.  Place Bonaventure Fire Rules & Regulations stipulate that no storage boxes can be left in the booth.  Exhibitors are advised that storage areas are not, and cannot be, secured.  Therefore, no valuable materials of any kind should be consigned to storage.

Please be advised that no drums containing fuel or oil can be sent to storage.  Only empty oil drums may be placed in this area and these drums will be thoroughly inspected by the Fire Marshall. 

Labour & Tipping

Exhibitors are required to abide by the prevailing labour conditions and rates effective in the exhibit hall.  All employees of Show Service Contractors are adequately paid and there is no need to tip.  Please report immediately to Show Management any discourtesies or attempts to imply that service will be speeded up or improved by tipping.

U.S. & International Freight

Exhibitors who are shipping goods to the show from outside of Canada are strongly recommended to use the Official Customs Broker for the show.  Representatives will be on-site throughout the show to ensure all your customs needs have been looked after.

Payment Of Space

All payment of exhibit space must be made 90 days prior to move-in as contracted.  SME Show Management reserves the right ot refuse move-in and use of space to any exhibitor who has not made full and final payment.
