Shipping Information

Exhibitors have a choice in how they get their materials into the exhibit hall. Exhibitors may take advantage of the convenience of Teamwork’s Advance Receiving and Warehousing services, hand-carry materials into the exhibit hall, or participate in the NAPAMA caravan (available to NAPAMA members only).

Advance Receiving and Warehousing

-Small Package Rate-
$30 for the first small package not to exceed 25 lbs; $15 for each additional small package received as part of the same shipment.

-Standard Rates-
Uncrated/Loose Materials: $234+ tax minimum up to 200 lbs
Crated Materials: 200 lb. $180+ tax minimum up to 200 libs; $90 for each additional 100 lb. unit

Any exhibitor whose materials can be brought onto the show floor by one person, in one trip, without the use of rolling suitcases, dollies, bellman’s carts or anything else with wheels, may bring their materials directly into the exhibit hall at no charge.   

**An important note about hand-carrying**
In recent years, the conference decorator has been extremely tolerant of exhibitors who roll materials into the exhibit hall.  This will not be the case this year.  Exhibitors will be stopped at the point of entry if attempts are made to enter the hall with a bellman’s cart, rolling suitcase or any other device with wheels, or more than can be carried in one person’s arms.  Any such person will be charged a flat fee of $65 per rolling device for On-site Cartload Service .

For NAPAMA members interested in utilizing the caravan, please contact Andrew Delicata.
