Equipment & Materials Drop-Off: The Event does not have hand carts, so the Partner should bring their own transportation equipment.

Equipment and materials may not be left blocking aisles and common areas at any time.
Delivery & Set-Up: The Partner agrees to deliver and/or set-up materials and equipment at the time selected on the Event registration. The Partner may set up for the Event starting 1 hour prior to the start time of the Event, or at the time specified on the Registration. Do not arrive before set-up times, without special arrangement, since Event set-up will be in progress until then. All Partner preparations should be completed 10 minutes before the start of the Event.
Valuables: The Exhibit Area will be patrolled throughout the day by Event staff but the safety of property brought and left at the Event cannot be guaranteed. We recommend that you keep valuables with you at all times. KidzKare and its event partners are not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
Tear Down: The Partner must remove all of its property, materials, and trash within 1 hour of the conclusion of the Event. To comply with event permits and for safety and other reasons, NO delivery, set-up or tear-down of equipment or displays will be allowed during Event hours.

All food service and food sample providers must comply with health department regulations, including display of all required permits. Packaged items may be offered if prepared in a licensed facility.
