Move-in & Move-out

Below are the dates and general move-in times.

Exhibitors will be emailed specific move-in times two weeks before the show date.

Please note:

  • Exhibitors are permitted to move-in during or after their specific move-in time.
  • Hard-toed shoes are to be worn during move-in and move-out.
  • Exhibitors may continue to set-up and organize their booths after their scheduled move-in time.

All Exhibitors must complete the Lange Move-in Questionnaire. It allows Lange to understand the move-in requirements for each booth.

Also, it gives Lange a rough estimate of how much freight each Exhibitor has coming on to the show floor.
