When does the G▪TEC Exhibitor Hall close?

The Exhibitor Hall will close on Tuesday, July 31st, at 2:00 p.m. There is absolutely no dismantling of booths prior to 2:00 p.m., as this is not only a breach of contract but also very disruptive to the Exhibitor Hall and booths around you. Teardown must be completed by 5 p.m.
