Loading Dock

Access to the loading dock is on 3rd Street SE between 8th and 9th Avenue, right beside the daycare facility.

Exhibitors must use the first dock on the right hand side and must back vehicles into the dock as part of safety procedures. Once you have unloaded your items, you will be required to move your vehicle before proceeding to the Municipal Building atrium. The public parking lot is across the street from the dock or there is a parkade in the Municipal Building.  There will be Safety Expo Committee members who will assist you with unloading and ensure your display is taken to your booth in the Atrium.
