Please ensure your exhibitor profile is accurate, as exhibitor move in times and dates will be communicated via email in October to the email we have on file. If you miss your designated move-in time you run the risk of not getting your equipment placed, as access to the large entry doors is very limited.

RULES AND REGULATIONS
Agri-Trade Management works closely with Red Deer EMS personnel to receive floor plan exhibitor placement approval. That means that your space outline or allocation must be adhered to without deviation. Each year we are physically inspected by Red Deer EMS personnel to determine that there are no infractions such as exit blockage. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.
Fire regulations prohibit the use of any kind of bales or other potential fire hazards within the buildings. Roofed buildings are also prohibited inside the pavilions as they block the sprinkler system from operating efficiently should an emergency occur. If you are concerned about anything you are planning to display, please contact show management.
Move In Times
If you require large door access and miss your move-in time you will be scheduled into the rotation with no guarantee of timing. Upon arrival to the building at your scheduled move in time, please check in with the Floor Manager for that pavilion and he will ensure you get your equipment in as soon as possible. All equipment must be cleared of snow before entering the building including boxes and accessories.
Exhibitors who are just carrying in materials may move in anytime Monday, November 5th or Tuesday, November 6th. All exhibitors in the Harvest Centre can move in at any time during those days and a forklift will be available to assist with larger materials.
