The above forms is just a reminder regarding the union jurisdictions at the PA Convention Center, specifically regarding installation and dismantle labor. Above is a reference which shows what tools can and can not be used to erect your display. If you need to use the "prohibited" tools in any function, a union carpenter must be hired through General Exposition Services to assist in that capacity.

Please note, ordering labor in advance of the show is less expensive than ordering on show site.
Also note, if your display is larger than 600 square feet, carpenter labor will be required to install / dismantle anything in your booth outside of placing product. If there is any questions regarding this, please feel free to call or email show management so that we can clear up any discrepancies before we get to show site.
PLEASE BE FAMILIAR WITH THESE RULES, AND LET US KNOW IF WE CAN HELP IN ANY WAY.
