Your driver must check in with Freeman by 3:00 pm on Thursday. If your carrier does not arrive within the allotted time, your freight will be shipped out via alternate carrier.

Shipping, Storage & Handling
You may ship by any carrier of your choice. Freeman has been designated as the official storage and handling contractor and as such is prepared to warehouse, transfer and move all exhibits into and out of the exhibit area. This includes the handling and care of empty containers. Because of liability considerations, Freeman will assume complete responsibility for maintaining in and out traffic schedules. Complete shipping information and rates are included in this manual.

If your exhibit is unusually large or complicated, please notify SAE and Freeman so that we are aware and prepared to handle the special needs (labor, equipment, special space requirements, or time requirements) that often accompany these types of displays.

Booth Design Approvals
Companies must submit their booth design for Show Management approval. The show rules state that plans must be submitted prior to the opening of the exhibition. The purpose of reviewing plans is to make sure the display is within the rules and regulations for booth construction. Should a problem be found, it is easier to correct the display while it is still in the design stages than to try and modify the display while it is being erected. We look forward to receiving your booth plans. Please submit your plans to Sue Haney at SAE by January 3 to haney@sae.org; phone-724-772-4015; fax-724-772-4041.

Display Furniture - No Display Furniture will be supplied with the booth. Display tables, chairs, and other furnishing items needed, may be rented at the rates shown on the Furniture Rental Order Form. NOTE: The exhibit floor area is carpeted. If you desire separate carpeting, please indicate this on the Carpet Order Form.

Electrical/Telephone Service - There is no Electricity or telephone service provided with the exhibit space. Electrical outlets and telephone service may be rented through the Sheraton Detroit Novi by completing and submitting the enclosed Electrical Order Form.
