ANY vendors who do NOT have receipt of payment, will have to wait for verification from management. • Vendors have between 45 min-60 min to unload their vehicle unless otherwise authorized by show management or by convention center security. Security will catalog vehicles and will begin announcing when vehicles need to move. If a vehicle is not moved within the allotted time, convention center security reserves the right to have the vehicle towed at the expense of the owner.
