Vancouver Holiday Show: Floor Plan, Load-in Procedure, and Venue Information

Load-in and Set-up Procedures

When you arrive to set up on Wednesday, December 6th, enter the PNE grounds through Gate 2 on Renfrew (see map below). Turn right into Lot 1, park your vehicle, and walk down the loading ramp into the Forum. Check in at the loading ramp with Brigitte or Rachel. We’ll give you directions to your booth and a rad Makie exhibitor badge! If you need a couple of extra badges for staffers just let us know.

Load in is from noon to eight p.m. The designated times are for check-in only; you can take as long as you like to set up your booth, as long as you’re done by 8:00 p.m. If you can’t come during your designated time slot, it’s not the end of the world, but please let us know ASAP! There will be no set up time on Thursday morning, so make sure you complete everything on Wednesday.

Load in schedule:

Booths 100-400   12:00-1:30
Booths 401-800   1:30-3:00
Booths 801-1400   3:00-4:30
Booths 1401-2000   4:30-6:00


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. You may use the exhibitor lounge for this purpose, but you must not leave your children in the lounge unattended; an adult must supervise your kids at all times. 

The load-in schedule will be released in the fall with the floor plan.

When you arrive at the PNE Forum for set-up, you may park in Lot 1 at the West side of the building to unload, but you must move your vehicle immediately once it is unloaded -the parking lot is small, and we have lots of Makies who need to get their goods into the building! More parking is available on the East side of the building. PNE parking is free on Wednesday during set-up.

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.

Floor Plan

Download a PDF of the floor plan here.

Please do not share this copy of the floor plan on social media; a more appropriate version will be posted in the "Promote the Show" section of the exhibitor guide for that purpose.

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.
