First Things First: Before the Set Starts

There are a number of things you can do when you first arrive at a set up. In fact, it can set the tone for the whole show.

When you first show up, a quick visit to the site and your space can put at ease and get you started.

I usually arrive mid- to late-afternoon the day before we are scheduled to start set up. Some of the things I do, if I have time are:
  • Confirm electrical order and/or placement
  • Make sure a hanging sign is in place or ready to be hung
  • Spot freight for easy installation or confirm freight is to be unloaded
  • If the service center is open, check n your orders
  • Check out the hall location with reference to the hotel and meeting rooms
  • Pick up or change badges
  • Say hello to the association staff and get an schedule changes

There are other things. But the fact you are there early gives you a slight edge to your start of work on Day 1.
