Trade Show Union Rules


Know the Union Rules of the Establishment

Union Rules vary from one convention to the other and also from city to city. They have many regulations and policies that you must be aware of including: Exhibit Set-Up Time, How long you have to set up & tear down. There are certain things the union will and will not let you do. If tools are required to set up your trade show display, it is almost certain you will not be allowed to set your own display up but will have to let a member or two from the union take over. (Yes you will pay for this) If you decide to purchase a Pop Up Display, be sure to buy one that does not need tools to set it up.

There are many other things the union will charge you for so be sure to check way before you get to the convention center so you are not caught off guard.
