Move-In

Allocations
Booth space is allocated on the basis of several factors.  It is of primary concern to the PGA of BC that all exhibitors are pleased with their participation in the Buying Show.  Sponsors of Association events and programs receive first considerations. Subsequent booth layout is subject to the decision made by the Buying Show Committee. The Richmond Olympic Oval has limited floor space & therefore the PGA of British Columbia will do its best to accommodate all exhibitors’ requests.
 

Move-Out
Move-Out will commence at 4:00pm on Thursday October 13th. Exhibitors tearing down booths prior to this time will be subject to fines and further discipline.
