Freight Delivery OptionsAll exhibitors on the main show floor (booths 100 thru 2835) who wish to use the Navy Pier loading docks are first required to check-in at the marshalling yard at McCormick Place (31st Street and Lake Shore Drive). Your other options are to ship your freight in advance to the ADVANCE warehouse (highly recommended) or hand-carry in your own display and goods. All booths not on the main show floor (3000 thru 3233 and all lobby booths) do not have access to a loading dock. These exhibitors must either ship their freight in advance or hand-carry it in themselves.Need Loading Dock Access?NOTE: New Vendor Zone Exhibitors do not have access to the loading dock. You must advance ship, or hand-carry your items in.Each main floor booth is assigned a Marshalling Yard Arrival Time listed by booth number (see column 2 of the chart below). This is the assigned time of the day your carrier or vehicle must check into the Marshalling yard office (31st Street and Lake Shore Drive). This is NOT your actual unloading time. Once you check in at the Marshalling yard during your assigned time window you will proceed from there to the loading dock at Navy Pier on a first-come, first served basis. See Exhibitor Service Manual for details. Please contact Catalyst Exposition if you have any questions or concerns. If you cannot arrive during your assigned Marshalling yard time, you MUST contact the Catalyst Exposition by July 22 to reschedule or overtime charges will apply.Shipping Your Freight in Advance?This is always the best and easiest way to get your freight to your booth. Your shipment will be waiting in your booth by your assigned Set-up Time (see column 3 of the chart below) shown at the right. No waiting in line!
