Move-In Information

To ensure a safe and efficient move-in process, the CPMA Trade Show follows a targeted freight move-in schedule which means all exhibitors who require the loading docks must have their truck arrive during their designated move-in slot to have their freight unloaded.

Exhibitors Using The Loading Docks:
A colour-coded move-in floor plan for freight arrivals has been designed to create a controlled environment on the Trade Show floor. If you are using the loading docks, you must have your carrier or trucks arrive during your scheduled move-in time and communicate any difficulties well in advance. If you miss your scheduled move-in time, you must reschedule and be prepared to wait, as your priority status is revoked for that time slot. Additionally, you may be subject to off-target fees.

Trucks should check-in directly at the loading docks (163 St. Antoine West, Montreal, Quebec). Please note that there are four (4) entrances to the convention centre, however loading docks are only accessible through St. Antoine West. Please anticipate a waiting time at the loading docks. Schedule your labour accordingly.

Move-out begins Thursday, April 4th at 4:30pm after show close. Empty containers will be returned stating at 5:30pm after the aisle carpet removal. More information on move-out procedures can be found here.

Exhibitors Who Do Not Need Access To The Loading Docks:
Exhibitors who do not require the loading docks may move in at any time during the hours specified below. If you have ordered carpet or furnishings from GES, these will be set-up in your booth prior to your arrival according to your scheduled move-in time on the floor plan. Materials brought through the front of the exhibit hall must be a small quantity/size that the exhibitor can carry in by hand - no dollies or carts allowed. All other items must go through the loading docks.

Exhibitor Move-In Hours Are As Follows:
Monday, April 1: 7:00am - 6:00pm (freight as per targeted move-in schedule)
Tuesday, April 2: 7:00am - 6:00pm (freight as per targeted move-in schedule)
Wednesday, April 3: 7:00am - 12:00pm (noon)
**All exhibits must be show ready by noon on Wednesday, April 3**

All exhibitors, service providers and personnel working on the show floor during move-in and move-out periods are required to wear approved personal protective equipment, at a minimum safety shoes or steel toes. Hard hats, harnesses, fall protection, gloves and safety eyewear must be worn when warranted by safety considerations.
