Exhibitor Information

Avid outdoor enthusiasts gather under one roof to attend the weekend shows and to see for themselves all the seminars, demonstrations and booths filled with tackle, gear, boats, fishing & hunting accessories and services. People are far more apt to buy and become regular customers when they can initially see, feel and hear about your products. Become an exhibitor at any or all of the four Florida Sportsman Expos scheduled for 2016.

MOVE-IN/MOVE-OUT INSTRUCTIONS, FT. MYERS 2/9/17 – 2/12/17

MOVE-IN/OUT, FT. MYERS, LEE CIVIC CENTER

1.Upon arrival at the Lee Civic Center for set-up on Thursday (Feb 9) or Friday (Feb 10), you must check in with the Show Office BEFORE you begin to set up your booth. You can unload through the large roll up door behind the main building. Park in the outside lot, behind the fence, in the back of the main building during the Expo over the weekend. Do not park up against the building, this area must remain open during the show.

2.All boats/trailers/RVs that will be indoors during the Expo can begin move-in any time on Thursday, Feb 9, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. If desired, you can stage outside Thursday morning beginning at 8 a.m. Please note: Because of the complex floor plan that allows for booths mixed with boats, stages, casting ponds, etc., this schedule is critical to an orderly move-in and set-up. Boat, trailers or RV move-ins on Friday would create difficult or impossible situations and cause delays because of narrow aisles, tight corners and scattered hand trucks, boxes and dollies. Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated.

3.Booth Exhibitors and Outside boats, trailer and RVs: On Friday, Feb 10, the doors will open at 10 a.m. until 8p.m.

4.Move-ins are not allowed Saturday morning or during the show. The Lee Civic Center will be open to exhibitors beginning at 8 a.m. each morning of the show, but do not attempt to start or complete your move-in Saturday morning. Expo hours: Sat., Feb 11, 10 to 5; Sun., Feb. 12, 10 to 4. Please be present each morning before the expo opens.

5.Move-out: As a courtesy to late-arriving attendees, start tearing down only when the show closes at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Move out should be completed by Sunday evening, although if needed we will be present Monday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
