Exhibit Hall Services
The exhibit hall has power and internet for exhibit tables. If you need to rent AV equipment for your exhibit table (example: monitor), you will need to order and pay direct with the onsite AV vendor. It will not be arranged by the NAPCP.
AV equipment may be rented through Stagevision at Allstream Centre. Click here for the rental and payment form. Please Note! If you rent equipment through Stagevision, you MUST use union labor for the set up and tear down. Union labor requires a 5 hour minimum so this will be very expensive compared to the price of the equipment rental. If you are needing AV equipment to support your exhibit table, it may make sense to purchase the equipment and bring in on one's own. Please consider the expense of labor when thinking on rental equipment. If you decide to rent equipment from an outside vendor, you will also be required to use union labor.
Questions, please contact Kara Austrum at NAPCP.
All can be arranged through Stagevision. Please contact:
Hank Smith, Stagevision Inc.
