POLICY REMINDERSEarly Teardown
Early booth breakdown is strictly prohibited. Due to an increase in complaints from retailers and exhibitors, Outdoor Retailer is committed to eliminating these practices from the show floor on the final day of the 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/or are unable to conduct business in their booth prior to 6:00 p.m. on January 12, 2017. Show Management will have teams walking the show floor the last day to enforce compliance of this policy. If your booth is breaking down EARLY, we will take photographs and your company will receive a notification of the violation within 30 days post show. The fine is $500. This policy will again be strictly enforced at Winter Market 2016 and all subsequent shows. Note that the violation fines will be as follows: $500/first time violations. $1000 fine for any next show violation, and third time violations will forfeit their booth placement at subsequent shows in addition to the fine(s).
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.
If your booth is unmanned or completely disassembled, we will take a photograph of your booth and send you a fine via email.
This early teardown policy supersedes any conflicting language in the terms and conditions to the exhibit space contract including but not limited to the terms and conditions stated therein in item number 12, and is a valid and enforceable amendment to the exhibit space contract. By exhibiting at the Event, you hereby agree to this early teardown policy.
The following regulations took effect on January 1, 2014:
OVERHEAD SIGNAGE (2010 NFPA 188.8.131.52.3-3.1.)
- Overhead signs shall be mounted at least 18” below the deflector of any fire sprinkler; and
- Overhead signs shall not contain any horizontal element that is greater than 4 ft. (48”) wide in the least horizontal dimension.
- The limitations above include the use of any material in a horizontal element of overhead signage, including open grating or mesh material.
Due to the volume of display crates and the limited aisle space available during set-up of the show, a Clean Floor policy will be enforced at OR Winter Market 2017.
Please review the following regulations:
January 8, 2017
- 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.: Apply "Empty" stickers to all crates, cartons or fiber cases that are ready for removal.
- 1:00 p.m.: Accessible Storage items must have a work order submitted for pick-up and be labeled for removal.
- 6:00 p.m.: Crates, cartons, fiber cases and packing material must be empty and labeled with "Empty" stickers for storage.
- 8:00 p.m.: All aisles must be 100 percent clear of product or any other items that may impede Freeman installing aisle carpet. Any items in the aisles after 8:00 p.m. will be removed from the aisles and placed in empty storage.
