Calgary Spring Show: Floor Plan, Load-in Procedure, and Venue Information

Load-in and Set-up Procedures

Check in is from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Because we have a large number of Makies, we stagger the load in process so it’s smoother. You will be assigned a load-in time based on your booth number (check back closer to the show date for the load-in schedule). The designated times are for load-in only; you can take as long as you like to set up your booth, as long as you’re done by 8:00 PM. If you can’t come during your designated time slot, please let us know. There will be no set up time on Friday morning, so make sure you complete everything on Thursday.

Booths 101-311: 12:00-1:30
Booths 401-711:   1:30-3:00
Booths 801-1011:   3:00-4:30
Booths 1101-1508:   4:30-6:00

You can find your booth number and the floor plan at the bottom of this page.

For the safety reasons children under the age of 15 are not permitted in the hall during set up or tear down. This includes babies in strollers or carriers. If you are travelling from out of town and have your kids with you, please make sure you arrange childcare in advance. Unfortunately, there is no separate lounge available at the venue for these purposes.

When you arrive to set up on Thursday, April 6th, enter the grounds through the south entrance on Stampede Trail (and not the exhibitor entrances, which lead to a different part of the grounds). Park in Lot 6, and make your way to the exhibitor entrance of Hall A of the Big Four. Check in with Brigitte or Jenna; we'll give you directions to your booth and a rad Makie exhibitor badge, plus a couple of extra badges for staffers if you need them. Go back outside and unload your vehicle. Once your vehicle is unloaded, please move it to a spot in the same lot a little further away from the building -with more than 160 Makies loading in, we'd like to keep the spaces closest to the building free for everyone.

We will have a number of dollies available to help you unload your vehicle, but if you have a dolly of your own we recommend you bring it to speed up the process.

Accessing the Venue

Please use the exhibitor entrance to access the venue before or after show hours. You will need to present your Makie button to the security guard in order to enter the venue; if you lose your button, please obtain a new one from Jenna or Brigitte. Please do not pressure the venue to admit you without your Makie credentials -their job is to keep unauthorized people (ie anyone without a button) out of the building in order to keep all of us (and everyone's products!) safe.

You may access the hall one hour before the show opens each day, and come in and out for one hour after the show closes. If you need to access the hall outside of those hours, please let us know so that we can make the proper arrangements with the security team.

Staff Access

You can pick up extra Makie badges for your staffers when you check in on Wednesday. Your staff can access the venue with their Makie badges through the exhibitor entrance one hour before and after the show each day, or through the regular show entrance during show hours.

Exhibitor Lounge

The exhibitor lounge is a draped off area at the back of the show; it has tables and chairs for you to use to take a break to eat or answer emails. There is a microwave, but no fridge.

Floor Plan

You can download a PDF of the floor plan here. Please don't share the exhibitor copy of the floor plan on social media; a prettier one will be provided for sharing soon.


N.B.: Although we try very hard not to make changes to the floor plan once it is released, it's sometimes necessary to make minor changes. Please double check your booth number a day or two before the show to ensure you've got the most up-to-date info.
