Shoptalk 2023 Exhibitor Resources
Due to the limited move-in time, we strongly recommend shipping your booth materials in advance to the Freeman Warehouse for delivery by March 23, 2023
Shipping to the Advance Warehouse
Freeman will begin accepting advance shipments at their warehouse on February 23, 2023.
All shipments must be delivered to the Freeman warehouse by March 23, 2023.
Materials arriving after March 23 will be subject to a late surcharge.
NOTE: Warehouse receiving hours are Monday through Friday 7:00 AM - 2:30 PM PST. Certified weight tickets must accompany all shipments. If required, provide your carrier with this phone number: (888) 508-5054.
Shipping Direct to Show Site
If you ship directly to Mandalay Bay, Freeman cannot accept the delivery before March 25th, 2023. Shipments arriving before this date may be refused by the facility or incur charges at the expense of the exhibitor.
Shipments may be significantly delayed if you ship directly to show site. If your shipments are delayed, this could affect your material handling fees and labor costs during build.
Shipping to The FedEx Office Print & Ship Center
Collateral and smaller boxes can also be shipped to the FedEx center in Mandalay Bay, conveniently located next to the exhibit hall.
For more information, please visit their webpage HERE, and consult their shipping/receiving instructions.
*Please do not send booth build materials to the FedEx center, but to the advance warehouse.

How do I ship my materials?
You can ship through a third party in one of two ways.
- Ship in advance to the Freeman Warehouse, where shipments can be received anytime between February 23 - March 23, 2023. Freeman will then deliver your freight to your booth. This is the best option if you want to begin set-up as soon as you arrive for move-in and not have to wait for your freight to be delivered.
- Ship direct to show site, where shipments will not be accepted until March 25, 2023. If shipments sent to Mandalay Bay arrive before March 25, 2023, they will likely be refused. Shoptalk DOES NOT recommend shipping to show site, as this will cause significant delays.
Where do I ship my booth’s hanging sign?
Due to limited move-in time, you are required to ship your hanging sign to the advanced warehouse. Hanging sign shipping labels can be found here. All shipments to Freeman’s warehouse must be delivered by March 23, 2023.
What is material handling?
Material Handling is the service to move and store your freight from the freight docks to your booth. This service includes off-loading from the delivery truck; delivery to your booth; removing empty crates and boxes; storing the crates and boxes during the show and returning them after the show: and finally delivery of the crates and boxes to your carrier. This service is all provided exclusively by Freeman. It is a one-time charge for incoming and outgoing. See the Material Handling page of the Freeman Exhibitor Kit for rates.
What happens to my empty containers during the show?
Pick up “Empty Labels” at the Freeman Service Desk. Once the container is completely empty, place a label on each container individually. Labeled empty containers will be picked up periodically and stored in non-accessible storage during the event.
Freeman will begin returning empty containers to booths in no specific order upon show close. The entire empty process may take up to 5 hours depending on the amount of freight we have to return.
Will there be a “Marshalling Yard” for my truck?
Yes, there will be a Marshalling Yard available for Shoptalk. All delivering carriers must check in at the Marshalling Yard prior to delivering to the facility. We advise to have your carriers arrive early as the Marshalling Yard is first come first serve.
Marshalling Yard Site Address:
6555 W. Serene Avenue
Las Vegas, NV 89139
This location does not accept deliveries. It is only for the staging of trucks delivering to and picking up from show site facilities.
