    ** If the booth was reserved on April 8th or later, this timeline does not apply. Please allow 1 week after your booth confirmation to receive your login to order badges and booth materials.

    • I understand there WILL NOT be a table or chair in my booth upon arrival. I will load-in our own furnishings, OR have ordered* from the official show contractors* Find table & chair order form HERE.

    • I'm aware that AAA never will provide an attendee list. If I receive an email that advertises a list, it is a phishing scam that I will block & ignore the sender. Instead, if I would like a post show list, I will sign up for show lead retrieval through Eleventh & Gather.  Lead Retrieval Form

    When can I set up and take down my booth?

    Booth Load-In will take place on Tuesday, May 14th from 8 am - 5 pm.

    The times below help us to minimize congestion at the loading dock from all exhibitors arriving at the same time. If you cannot make your assigned time but will arrive before 5pm, that is fine.

    If you WILL NOT set up your booth on Tuesday, May 14th, you must notify the AAA event's team that you intend to do a "walk-in" setup. 

    Walk-In Set Up Information: For those that do not have much to set up in the booth, the exhibit hall will open on the 15th starting at 10am.

    REMINDER the large loading doors will not be open that day so anything you bring will need to fit through a standard doorway. The hall exhibit hall will close at 12: 30 pm for the opening ceremony outside the doors to the hall. 

    At the completion of the show, you will be allowed to hand carry items out of the exhibit hall but will NOT be granted re-entry until the next day. Anything leaving the exhibit hall on Wednesday, May 15th will need to be accompanied by THIS property removal form that will be checked by security while exiting. 

    Booth Load - Out will take place on Thursday, May 16th from 8 am - noon.
