Target move-in assignments

With the assistance of our general contractor, Freeman, the RSNA 2019 target move-in assignments have been set to give exhibiting companies the maximum set-up time possible to construct your exhibit within the scheduled move-in dates. Target assignments are based on exhibit size and complexity, proximity to freight doors, impact on surrounding exhibitors, and the overall movement of freight within the exhibit hall. Companies have been assigned a target move-in date between Thursday, November 21 and Wednesday, November 27. All booths must be show ready by 9:00 a.m. Sunday, December 1.

Special Notice: Thursday, November 28 is Thanksgiving Holiday. Exhibit halls will be closed. Exhibitors will not be permitted to work on this day. Click here to view the complete Technical Exhibits Schedule.

Trucks can begin checking in at the marshalling yard two hours prior to your target move-in assignment. Your target move-in assignment is the date / time that your freight must arrive at McCormick Place. Your target date / time is for check-in only and does not necessarily represent the time you will be unloaded. Please allow up to 4 hours for complete unloading of your freight from the time the unloading process begins. Please schedule your labor accordingly.

  • 7:00 a.m. targets will begin to be unloaded by 11:00 a.m.
  • 11:00 a.m. targets will begin to be unloaded by 3:00 p.m.

These elements must be sent to the Freeman warehouse, 2500 West 35th Street, Chicago, IL 60632, and must be received by Wednesday, November 13.
