Where do I ship my booth materials?

We have two location options to make shipping more convenient.

The first method is to ship your freight in advance to the Freeman Warehouse.  You’ll receive confirmation of receipt and the materials will be waiting in your booth for you when you arrive on-site. Additional information will be available in the Exhibitor Set-up Manual. The advance shipment address is:

  • Freeman Warehouse address for advanced shipments: Company Name & Booth Number(s) NY NOW c/o Freeman 1 Railroad Place Maspeth, NY 11378

The second method is to ship directly to show site. Freeman will be receiving shipments beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 (please refer to your target check-in time). The show site shipping address is:

  • The shipping address to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (JKJCC) is:  Company Name & Booth Number(s) NY NOW c/o Freeman Jacob K. Javits Convention Center 655 West 34th Street (12th Avenue & 39th Street)

What is the Marshaling Yard and why do I have to go there?

The marshaling yard is located on 12th Avenue at 39th Street. All delivering carriers must check in at the Marshaling Yard prior to delivering to the facility. Drivers must check in no later than 2:30 p.m. on the target move-in date to be off-loaded.

Please be advised that certified weight tickets are required when checking into the Marshaling Yard. For your convenience, Freeman has available a full-size certified scale at the Marshaling Yard. If your driver has valid certified weight tickets, Freeman will accept these tickets and your driver will not have to scale at the Freeman Marshaling Yard. All carriers will be assigned an unloading number according to driver check-in time.


Can I use my own dolly/hand truck and move my materials into my booth?

No, you may not.  Only materials that can be hand-carried by one individual in one trip may be brought into the exhibit hall by an exhibitor. Someone must be available to stay with your vehicle at all times to avoid being towed, and should remain parked for no more than 30 minutes. No exceptions.

All private vehicles larger than a Ford Ecoline van must check in at the Marshaling Yard and use the loading docks for freight move-in. Hand-carry move-in assistance will be available on a limited, first-come-first-served basis from the front doors to individual booths. If you have questions, please contact Freeman at 201-299-7575.


Where can I find the NY NOW Exhibitor Set-up Manual?

The NY NOW 2015 Exhibitor Service Manual will be available online in May under “Exhibitor Services”.

If you have any questions about the NY NOW Exhibitor Set-up Manual, please contact Kristen Anderson, Operations Manager, at 914-421-3293 or kristen.anderson@emeraldexpo.com.


How do I register my exhibitor booth personnel?

Exhibitor Registration can be done online. This will be live in May and all exhibitors will be notified by email when registration opens for badges. Note that all badges must be picked up on-site with photo ID.


How many exhibitor badges do I get for my company?

Badge allotment is based off the size of your booth. You may register 5 employees for every 100 square feet. If additional badges are needed, you may do so for an additional charge.
