ORDER IN ADVANCE! Ordering in advance will ensure that you have the power you need, as well as save you a significant amount of money.
The most common power request is for 20 AMP 110 V single outlet. This is sometimes called "household power" or standard current. A normal room in a home can use this amount of power.
Remember, heating elements and some appliances can draw as many as 11 AMPs each. Look for an electrical label or call if you are not sure about your equipment’s requirements.
$85 fee is for the first hour only. Each additional hour is $25. After four total work hours, a one hour break must be taken. A break longer than one hour will start the $85 rate again.
Exhibitors shall not attach signs, banners, pennants or any other devices to the walls, windows or ceilings of the facility without written permission.
Exhibitors are responsible for removal of all approved signage after the event. If an exhibitor fails to remove the signage or leaves any attachment residue, they will be charged the full sign hanging charge. (The only approved tape for use on the walls and windows of Century II is masking tape or painter's tape.)
Signs or banners hung from ceilings or building exterior shall be hung by the Exhibitor Services Department. Rates are determined using the following criteria:
- SIGNS - under 4' x 10' in size weighing less than 70 lbs;
- BANNERS - under 20' in length weighing less than 140 lbs.;
- OVERSIZE - anything over 20' in length or weighing more than 140 lbs.
Pricing for signs or banners with multiple sides (e.g. 3-sided, 4-sided) will be calculated by multiplying the cost for a single banner and the number of sides to be hung.
