EARLY TEARDOWN POLICY & SHOW RULES
Early booth breakdown is strictly prohibited. Due to an increase in complaints from buyers and exhibitors on this issue, ASD Market Week is committed to eliminating these practices from the show floor on the final day of the trade show.
An exhibitor is in violation of early breakdown if they start to break down their booth, remove product from their shelves, box up product and are unable to conduct business in their booth PRIOR TO 3 PM on the last day of the Show (Wednesday). Show Management will have teams of staff on the show floor the last day to enforce compliance of this policy, if your booth is breaking down, we will take photographs and your company will receive a violation form on site with a fine of $500 for first time violators, $1,000 fine for 2nd time violators and 3rd time violators will forfeit opportunity to participate in the show.
Companies in violation of this policy are jeopardizing their booth location for future shows and the fine must be paid prior to being able to reserve space in subsequent shows. Please keep this in mind when making staffing decisions and travel arrangements for the final day of the show.
In addition, we will be offering a text service whereby exhibitors and buyers can report booths that have closed down or are breaking down. If your booth is unmanned or completely disassembled, we will take a photograph of your booth and send you a fine in the mail.
Exhibitors must adhere to all booth rules and regulations as outlined within the service manual including but not limited to:
- Merchandise or booths sold to buyers is not permitted to be removed from the show floor before 3pm on the last day of the show (Wednesday).
- Beginning at 3pm on Wednesday, buyers will be permitted to hand carry items off the floor. They may not use wheeled dollies or drag behind scooters.
