Booth Labor & Freight

Booth Labor & Freight In Seattle, full-time employees of the exhibiting companies may set their own exhibits, provided that the exhibit can be set up in less than one half-hour without the use of tools or ladders. Any additional labor services that may be required must be rendered by the local carpenters union.

You may hire labor either through your choice of Exhibitor Appointed Contractor, such as Absolute I & D, or you may hire labor from the general contractor. Proof of full time employment status may be requested by the Union Steward of any personnel working in your booth.

Exhibitors may hand-carry their own materials into the exhibit facility. Wheeled carts or dollies are not permitted. The general contractor controls access to the loading docks and exhibitors will not be allowed to bring materials in through the docks.


Straight time rates apply from Monday through Friday, 8am-5:00 pm. Overtime rates are incurred outside of those hours on Monday through Friday as well as all day on Saturdays. Double time rates apply on Sundays and holidays. Lunch is from 12:00– 1:00 pm.
