Show Management Office

During move-in and show days, Show Management may be reached at the Show Management Office located on the Concourse level, at the top of the set of stairs nearest the entrance to the parking garage. 


Children WILL NOT be allowed on the show floor during exhibitor move in and move out.   Children accompanied by an adult will be allowed on the show floor ONLY during official show hours.  Badges are required for anyone 5 years old and older.  Please make appropriate arrangements for your children.

Floor Covering Requirement

In accordance with building and show regulations, ALL booths must have floor covering. If you do not have your own or planned for floor covering, you may rent carpeting from Freeman at the Exhibitor Services Desk, located in the West hall behind the 1500 aisle.  

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Only tape that is easily removed may be used to adhere floor covering/carpet to the venue floor.  Approved types of tape for usage include brands such as Gaffers, Echo, and Inertape. Please Note: Duct tape, Gorilla tape and clear packing tape are NOT allowed.  Any costs for the removal of tape residue from the floor of booths will be charged to the exhibiting company.

Empty Crate Removal

If you wish to have your empty crates and cartons stored by Freeman, they must be labeled with “Empty Crate” stickers, which can be obtained from the Freeman Service Desk, located behind the 1500 aisle in West Hall.  Please label your crates as soon as they are empty so that we can clean the exhibit floor and install the aisle carpeting. Items that are not labeled with an “Empty” crate sticker may be considered trash and discarded. Storage of empty crates is included in material handling (drayage) charges.


Never leave your booth unattended during show hours.  We recommend that you take portable or valuable equipment with you each evening when you leave the exhibit hall and bring it with you to the opening of the show each morning.

Aisle Selling

Exhibitors are permitted to conduct business only within their booth space. All selling and promotional activities must be contained within the exhibit area described in your Application for Exhibit Space.  Distribution of materials outside your exhibit booth space is strictly prohibited. No selling or distribution of printed matter or materials of any nature will be allowed in the aisles, other exhibitor booths, entrances or exits of the Exposition or other public areas.


For the protection of all Pacific Marine Expo exhibitors, only those companies whose Application for Exhibit Space has been received and approved by Show Management will be allowed to present and sell their products at Pacific Marine Expo. If you see a representative from a non-exhibiting company soliciting business on the show floor, please request a business card from that person and bring it to the Show Management Office on the concourse level.


To reserve exhibit space for 2024, please visit our sales team in the Sales Office.
