Demystifying the General Service Contractor Role
When preparing to exhibit at Outdoor Retailer, there are many details to take care of. A General Service Contractor, or GSC, is a helpful single source for event management and exhibitor resources, assisting with your exhibit needs. For Outdoor Retailer, that GSC is Freeman. Sourcing products and services in one place means greater efficiency and less demand on you.
