The Finishing Touches

The last day of set up is always a day of punch lists and tending to do the last-minute details. Before you can leave the booth that one last time before the show opens, did you:

  • Put out the pen holders and other office supplies?
  • Label the last crates as "Empty"?
  • Cut the poly off the carpet?
  • Put out the wastebaskets?
  • Distribute keys?
  • Lock up?
  • Secure the last badges for the latecomers?
  • Give the booth one last heavy wipedown?

There's more, but that comes with making lists with some thought.

Have a great show!

Lesson learned: remember the details and the big things don't become big problems.
