Target move-in assignments

With the assistance of Freeman, RSNA’s general contractor, we assign target move-in dates to give exhibiting companies the maximum setup time possible to construct their RSNA 2023 exhibit.

Target move-in assignments are based on exhibit size and complexity, proximity to freight doors, impact on surrounding exhibitors and overall movement of freight within the exhibit hall.

Companies have been assigned target move-in dates between Nov. 16–22. All booths must be show-ready by 9 a.m. CT on Sunday, Nov. 26.

Please note: Thursday, Nov. 23 is a national holiday. Both exhibit halls will be closed and exhibitors will not be permitted to work on this day.

Technical Exhibits schedule and move-in assignments

Trucks can begin checking in at the marshaling yard two-hours prior to your target move-in assignment. Your target move-in assignment is the date/time that your freight must arrive at McCormick Place.

Your target date/time is for check-in only and does not represent the time you will be unloaded. Please allow up to four hours for complete unloading of your freight from the time the unloading process begins and schedule labor accordingly.

  • Those who are scheduled in the 7 a.m. CT slot will begin the unloading process by 11 a.m. CT
  • Those who are scheduled in the 11 a.m. CT slot will begin the unloading process by 3 p.m. CT

Avoid potential carrier wait times on your target move-in date by shipping to the Advance Warehouse.

Hanging signs

Approved, hanging booth elements may be installed Thursday, Nov. 16.

These elements must be sent to the Freeman warehouse, 2500 W. 35th Street, Chicago, IL 60632, and must be received by Thursday, Nov. 9.
