Target Move In

Due to the amount of time available for move-in during DOMOTEX USA, each company has been assigned a check-in time at some point on February 26-27, 2019. The schedule below targets check-in time waves to accommodate set-up of these larger displays. Use the trade show floor plan to identify your booth number and corresponding color on the check-in schedule.

Exhibitors are required to strictly adhere to this schedule. If an exhibitor’s non-targeted move-in requires moving, dismantling, etc. of previously installed displays or display materials, exhibitor will be charged applicable labor and material fees.

If you cannot adhere to your assigned target and wish to change, please email your request to: Bryan.P.Jones@freemanco.com. Please include dimensions and weight of largest piece, total number of pieces, booth number, carrier, current target date and requested target date.

Every attempt will be made to accommodate your unloading times. Freeman will confirm all target changes in writing.

See floor plan for your booth’s color designation as it relates to the check-in time.
