No. Move-in times are strictly enforced to ensure the event is ready to open at the published scheduled times. Should you have a special circumstance and would like to request permission for move-in on the morning of the first day of the event, you must contact Operations Manager by email or 828-333-9424 in advance of the event and gain permission. Those hand-carrying (50lbs or less) will be the only approved exhibitors. Approved exhibitors must have their booth completely set-up by 9am Saturday morning. Should an exhibitor arrive on Saturday morning but have failed to gain permission and a pre-approved appointment from EPI, they will be assessed a late move-in fee.
