Move-In Details 2021
Live-in / Set-up - Sunday, June 27, 2021 - between 12 noon & 4 pm
In an effort to expedite the exhibit move-in process we ask that you plan to arrive at the Convention Center to unload your exhibit during your time slot. Times are listed below. Once you finish unloading your vehicle(s), it is important that you move your vehicle out of the loading area. Security personnel will enforce this policy.
All exhibits must be set up by 4:30 pm on Sunday, June 27. Booths requiring very little set-up time may move-in on Monday morning between 8:45 am and 10:00 am provided MML is notified prior to June 19.
All display vehicles and equipment will be located outside the convention center. Vehicles and equipment that will easily fit within your booth space(s) along with your booth staff and display may be located inside the exhibit hall.
If you plan to have a vehicle or equipment inside your booth, MML must be notified in advance to ensure your equipment will have access to your booth space. There is no additional charge for equipment located within your booth space. Vehicle and equipment move in time slots for Sunday, June 27 between 1 and 3 pm will be provided.
Contact MML for details, 410-295-9100.
Absolutely NO unregistered personnel will be allowed in the exhibit halls during exhibit hours. This includes tech support, guests, clients, and spouses.
For their safety, PLEASE no children in the halls during booth move-in on Sunday or booth dismantling on Tuesday.
Children, guests, and unregistered personnel will not be permitted in the exhibit halls.
Temperatures in the convention center can vary greatly from location to location. Please be prepared for both warm and cold conditions.
Service and Rental Order Form
If you need any items for your booth such as carpeting or internet access, the EXPO SERVICE and RENTAL FORM must be completed and sent with payment to the Convention Center as soon as possible.

If you do not need carpeting or any additional furnishings, it is not necessary to return this form to the Convention Center.
Booth items include a 30" x 30" x 6’ draped table, two chairs, trash can, and a 500 watt outlet.
