Will late access to the exhibit hall be allowed?

Exhibitors are allowed 24-hour access to the exhibit hall during move-in days, show days, and move-out days. Please note that the exhibitor service desk will only be in operation from 8:00am-5:00pm on exhibitor move-in, show, and exhibitor move-out days, February 20 – March 3.

Does KBIS have a “clean floor policy”? When do my crates and skids need to be clear from the show floor?

In an effort to ensure a successful show opening for KBIS 2024, we are enforcing a Clean Floor Policy.

  • All cutting/sawing equipment must have dust collection bag attachments or have containers for collection while cutting is performed. Performing this activity outside of the contracted booth space may result in cleaning fees charged to the exhibiting company.
  • All empty crates and skids must be labeled for empty storage or for trash and removed from the facility by 3:00 PM on Monday, February 26.
  • All exhibits must be fully installed by 5:00 PM on Monday, February 26.
  • All ladders and large booth construction equipment must be removed from the exhibit hall by 7:00 AM on Tuesday, February 27.

Following this Clean Floor Policy schedule will allow Freeman sufficient time to complete the laying of the aisle carpet and the overall cleaning of the exhibit hall, as well as provide exhibitors the space to complete their booth set up by keeping aisles clear.

There will be no exceptions to this policy. Crates without empty or accessible storage stickers will be tagged by the area floor managers or Freeman and removed from the exhibit hall – whether full or empty. Exhibitors may request product to be returned to their booth at the exhibitor’s expense. Depending on where the crates are located, it may not be possible to access the crates prior to move-out.

What are the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show expo floor hours?

Tuesday, February 27: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Wednesday, February 28: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Thursday, February 29: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Where do I ship my booth materials?

Please review the Exhibitor Service Manual starting on page 15 for more information. 

Can I use my own dolly/hand truck and move my stuff in to my booth?

Full-time exhibitor personnel may carry materials in and out of the Las Vegas Convention Center by hand or with the use of an exhibitor-owned, non-motorized two-wheeled hand cart. This does NOT include pallet jacks or motorized equipment of any type. If needed, cart service and/or empty storage and return will be provided by Freeman at the prevailing rates.

Can I set up my own booth?

Exhibiting companies are required to make cleaning and labor arrangements for both material dismantle and/or removal. It is expected and required that all the exhibiting material be removed at the end of the show. It is not appropriate for bulk material to be left in the aisles during move-in or left behind during move-out. This includes, but is not limited to: flooring, large boxes and crates, racks, exhibit displays, literature, etc. If the exhibiting company does not want any or part of their exhibit material, arrangements for cleaning labor and dumpster/disposal need to be made in advance through Freeman. Exhibitors that do not comply with this policy and leave excessive literature and/or display materials in their booth during move-in or move-out will be deemed guilty of “material abandonment” and will be charged for the removal of these items.
