No exhibits may start tearing down until after 3:00pm. The takedown, removal, or repackaging of booth materials and/or displays during posted bridal show hours is strictly prohibited. Not only is this disrespectful to attendees and neighboring booths, but it poses a hazard while transporting said materials through the event facility. Early tear-down will result in forfeiture of the lead list and a $100 fine.
