IMPORTANT LOAD IN INFORMATION

THE FIRST THING TO DO IS CHECK IN AT THE FPF HELP DESK (LOCATION IN ORANGE BELOW)

Load in begins 10AM thursday the 16th.  It is recommended that vendors presenting in a booth wait until 12 noon to begin arriving to allow the hotel time to set up tables and chairs.  Machine load in can begin as early as 10 but please make sure that you are patient with others that are also loading in and when you have finished your load in you need to leave the back dock load in area as fast as possible to allow the next person in.

Game donors please enter through the second entrance to the hotel if you are coming from international drive, pass across the front of the hotel (including the lobby area) and you will see a stop sign.  To the right at that sign is the back dock.  You will need to back in to this space, please do so in an orderly fashion.

Artists and Vendors can load in by driving through the hotel entryway and following a path the hotel has laid out in cones.  Smaller items can then be loaded through multiple sets of double doors that line the vending area of the show in the front of the hotel.

Remember, large items, trucks, and trailers please use the hotel dock area.  Everything else, please load in through the front of the hotel.
