  • What is target move-in and how can I change it?

Targeted floor plans are developed to ease the transportation of freight on show floor. At SEMICON West, we "target" the move-in of freight. This is intended to minimize your carrier’s waiting time and maximize the efficiency of freight move-in.

In order for everyone to take full advantage of their move-in period we are be unable to change your targeted move in schedule.

The 2016 Targeted floorplans will be available in early November

  • What are my rights as an exhibitor regarding freight handling?

As the official service contractor, Freeman is the exclusive provider of freight handling at show site.

  • What are my rights as an exhibitor regarding material handling?

Also known as drayage is the movement of freight material from the loading dock to the booth space. The union has jurisdiction over all unloading and reloading of materials. The union also has jurisdiction over the operation of all material handling equipment – this includes all dollies and hand trucks. You may hand carry what you can manage by yourself (one person) in one trip, using no equipment. Current union jurisdiction precludes hotel personnel from delivering material to exhibit booths

  • What are my rights as an exhibitor regarding labor?

By definition, the installation or dismantling of exhibits which requires the use of hand tools, or takes one person more than 30 minutes, or exceeds ten feet in any direction, falls within the jurisdiction of the union

  • What is the maximum booth height?

The maximum height for all configurations, including all booth elements such as truss and signage is 20 feet / 6 meters, with exceptions as noted on the floorplans

  • What is the cubic content rule?

This rule allows exhibitors to make maximum use of their booth space. Under the cubic content rule, each exhibitor may build right up to the front of his booth, up to the maximum allowable height of 20 feet / 6 meters, with exceptions as noted on the floorplans

  • What are the regulations for hanging signs?

Show Management must approve all hanging signs for inline booths. Engineering drawings must accompany signage on-site and be available in booth. All hanging signs should be sent to the Advance Warehouse by June 28, 2016

  • What is an EDC?

EDC stands for Exhibitor Designated Contractor. An EDC (a.k.a., EAC (Exhibitor Appointed Contractor)) is any company (other than one of the official designated contractors) that an exhibitor wants to use inside the exhibit hall before, during or after the show. Submit your EDC Application by June 10, 2016 through the Exhibitor Console / eBooth portal
