In order to promote a safe and coordinated flow of traffic among all exhibit areas, staggered hours are anticipated between different exhibit halls so different halls open and close at different times (e.g., 8:30am – 4:30pm, 9:00am – 5:00pm, 9:30am – 5:30pm). Precise hours for each exhibit area are still to be determined, and will be made in consultation with local governmental authorities pursuant to anticipated large gathering restrictions.

**For security reasons, labor will not be permitted in the hall until 5:00 PM after show closing on Friday.
Firearm crates will be returned first followed by cartons and containers, and then crates. Crate return starts at 5:00pm and is completed by 8:00am Saturday.
Show Management reserves the right to determine and verify the eligibility of Exhibitors and their products and services at any time.
