Return Shipping of Packages:
Employer representatives must repackage their materials and displays, attach the correct mailing labels, and call their shipping carrier for package pick up at the end of the fair. You will need to supply your carrier with the following information:
Pick Up Location: Packages will be kept in a locked closet adjacent to the fair location, G29. Drivers must enter the building to get the packages. A staff member will unlock the closet where packages are stored. Packages will not be on the loading dock once the fair is over.
Type of Carrier Service: Please specify which service you are requesting as carriers often determine which vans to send depending on the shipping method: ground, overnight, express etc.
- Labels: Make sure you attach a return label that includes a correct account number, package label number, etc. Often, the account number is not shown on the label, and carriers will not schedule a pick up without the account number.
- We usually see about 2 or 3 reps per table. If you plan to bring more representatives during the day, there will be an extra charge.
- You may cancel your registration before the payment deadline and receive a refund. No refunds are given after Friday, February 6th, 2015. If we have to cancel for weather related or other reasons, a credit will be given to a future fair.
