Exhibitor Information

Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta, Georgia


All this information below will help you, but please feel free to call us anytime at 801.822.1333 with questions.

Supplier / Booth Amenities

You can supply your own booth items, but we have an excellent (new) supplier/decorator in Shepard Expo Services. Their online exhibitor kit is here and your order form password is PCE19. You may also contact them by phone at (404) 720-8600. Your booth is simply your space with black pipe and drape (8' back wall and 3' sides) and Shepards can supply nearly everything else. Commonly ordered items include draped tables, chairs, carpet & more.

Electrical

Electrical and internet are both ordered directly from the Cobb Galleria.

Basic electrical goes for $85 pre-ordered. For electrical they use an online ordering system you can access by clicking here. If you need further instructions click here. For more questions or if you prefer humans, contact the Cobb Galleria at services@cobbgalleria.com or 770-989-5016.

Internet

Internet and electrical are both ordered directly from the Cobb Galleria.

Wifi or hardlined internet is is available thru the Cobb Galleria using the same system as above. Single users are usually around $125 per show (pre-ordered) or up to 10 users for $600. Faster speeds available.

Booth Design Rules

We are fortunate in our state to not have a lot of set-up and design regulations. All booth amenities must be within the allotted space (nothing in the isles) unless pre-approved. Anything deemed unsafe in the opinion of the expo organizer (such as tipping hazards) will be required to change. We also ask that there be no solid side walls on your booth that block the view to your neighbors for the attendees that are walking down the isle. The provided drape rods will support normal banners but in general are not to be used as booth support. Helium balloons can be used, but only if they are attached securely to your booth. Please do not hand out helium balloons.

Shipping Partner - InXpress

You may ship any way you'd like, but we have an excellent shipping partner in InXpressClick here to learn more. They are very reliable and have the best rates.

Shipping & Material Handling

There is a new policy that the Cobb will not receive any freight on behalf of exhibitors. Shipping and handling should be coordinated through Shepards or InXpress above. You may possibly receive and sign for items shipped to the Cobb yourself if you can gaurantee its arrival while you are there for set-up days. If you have any more questions you may call our office at 801-822-1333.

An exhibitor has suggested one more option. You can also get your freight shipped to YRC Freight Line on Airport Industrial Blvd in Marietta and arrange a dock pick up. It's about 1.5 miles from the Cobb Galleria and it's a great way to save shipping budget money.

Set-Up | Take-Down

Set-up is Thursday, April 16th between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Enter at the back part of the building (southeast side, via Galleria Parkway SE) to get into the loading dock area. It is open set-up (no assigned times). Check-in at the desk near the back loading docks for information, exhibitor badges, location help, etc. Please plan on unloading and then moving you car before you finish your set-up. Drive-ins not allowed during set-up day (too full). The Cobb would prefer that we not have early set-up on Wednesday for liability reasons. They've also asked that there be no children during load-in and load-out times for liability reasons.

Take-down is anytime after 7 p.m. (to 11 p.m.) on Saturday evening. No early take downs!

You may park in the back (east or south) for loading and unloading only. On show days please use the main front parking lots for your vehicle. There will be a Cobb parking fee. Utility trailer parking is available at a Cobb co-owned Marshalling Yard southeast of the facility. See a map for directions to the trailer lot here.
