SECURITY: Be fully aware of shoplifters who frequent
these shows. Never leave your table without someone watching it. Bring an old
bed sheet to cover your display if you must leave for any reason. Put smaller
items like lenses toward the back and do not get distracted by several persons
at your table at one time. REPORT ALL MISSING ITEMS IMMEDIATELY TO SHOW STAFF.

do not pack up your display early. Last year we had several people attend the
show late and were not happy that dealers were packing up as early as 1
o'clock. We had to issue those people refunds..This is not fair to other dealers who stay set up. It could also
cause lost sales. The show is advertised to be open until 3 o'clock.
We ask that
you pack up and leave the ballroom by 4 pm.
HAVE A GREAT
