We ask that you do not ship anything more than five days before your scheduled event and that no more than 6 pallets of equipment are sent. All shipped items must have the following:

Please keep track of what should be arriving and when so we at the hotel can keep an eye out for these. It would also be helpful if I had a list of what will be coming so I can arrange for a place to store the equipment.

For outbound shipments, you will need to schedule the carrier to pick up your package.
