Hand Carried Freight

HAND CARRIED FREIGHT GUIDELINES

Washington State Convention Center has a temporary small vehicle delivery area within its facility. This space is reserved by Show Management to allow safe access for exhibitors to transport materials to and from their exhibit areas. Show Management will publish the dates and times established for the operation of Hand Carried Freight (HCF) in advance.

Exhibitors must use the 8th Avenue parking garage entrance. Passenger elevators and escalators may not be used for transporting freight. Clearance at this entry is 6'5". Vehicles exceeding this height must schedule deliveries through the loading dock (standard full size vans will not clear this entry).
