The Mesa Convention Center does not have the ability to store or receive freight deliveries prior to move in. Please direct freight carriers not to deliver prior to move-in or arrange drayage with the show decorator. Early arriving freight will be refused. In like manner, all exhibit materials must be removed during move-out or consigned to the show decorator. Any exhibit materials remaining at the conclusion of move-out are considered abandoned and will be disposed of.

Due to Fire Code restrictions, move-in or move-out activities are not permitted during show hours or while attendees are on the show floor.

Exhibitors must park in the designated Third Place parking lot. Vehicles and/or trailers left on the grounds overnight will be required to purchase a $10.00 parking permit and are also restricted to the Third Place parking lot. This permit is obtained through the Mesa Convention Center Administration Office (480-644-2178). Please note: This service is not available more than 24 hours prior to move-in.
