The Exhibitor is responsible for the arrangement and expenses of shipping materials, exhibits or any other items to and from the facility through Capital Convention Contractors. Capital recommends shipping exhibit materials up to 30 days prior to event move-in to their Advance Freight Receiving Warehouse. Making advance shipping arrangements will ensure a prompt and secure delivery to your exhibit site! The Royal Plaza Trade Center will not have the facilitie to receive and store materials in advance and may refuse your shipment and additional charges may occur.
For Advance Shipping to Warehouse: All freight shipments must be shipped prepared and received in Capital's warehouse no later than March 27, 2019. A 35% late charge will apply if orders for advance shipping are received after this date.
For Direct Shipping to Show Site: DO NOT ship exhibit materials direct to show site to arrive prior to April 2, 2019. You MUST designate your shipment for arrival during exhibitor set-up date only and label your materials c/o CAPITAL CONVENTION CONTRACTORS.
Additional shipping information is available in the MCOPA Service Kit and Capital Conventions Optional Exhibitors kit.
