Back to School Expo 2019


WELCOME TO THE BACK TO SCHOOL EXPO 2019

We are very excited you are participating in our 3rd annual Back to School Expo.  We are looking forward to a busy and successful day. Here are the details for set up and breakdown:

Location

Chesterfield Towne Center
11500 Midlothian Turnpike
Richmond, VA 23235

Set-Up

Vendors can set up starting at 8 am.  You can enter the mall through either the H & M entrance or the Old Navy entrance.  Once you enter, a Channel 8 employee will help you locate your area.  All set up must be completed by 10am with dollies, carts, etc. put back in your vehicles by this time.

Vehicles

If you are bringing a vehicle into the event, you must arrive by 7 am.  Vehicles will be brought in through the H & M entrance.  The entrance measures 6’8” W x 9’10” H.  If your vehicle will not fit through this doorway, we have another option to get your vehicle in.

  • Vehicles/Simulators can only be loaded into or removed from the mall outside of operating hours. Please contact your rep to let them know when you will remove the vehicle so this can be coordinated with mall security.
  • Vehicles must have ¼ tank of gas or less to enter the mall.
  • Mats must be placed under all 4 tires while in the mall. Floor mats will work for this.
  • If your vehicle is larger than the door measurements above, please contact your rep so we can coordinate you coming in the alternative door.

Breakdown  The expo ends at 4pm.  At this time, you will be able to pack up your items and exit the mall.  Please refrain from breaking your table down early or pulling in dollies/carts to pack up until 4pm.
