Crash Course: What You Need to Know about Trade Show Logistics
What if your freight doesn't make it to your event on time? Or, what if everything goes well but there is a surprise when you open your final invoice? During this session, you'll learn the basics of trade show shipping.

 •  Identify the variables that make trade show shipping different from shipping other types of goods.
 •  Explore how to decide between shipping to the advanced warehouse or direct to show site
 •  Share examples of the documentation that is vital to event shipping
 •  Discuss the liability limitations of general service contractors and understand your insurance coverage options
