GWCC to let exhibitors back in .. and attendee refund information

From www.hinman.org

We have received notice from the Georgia World Congress Center that it is now safe to re-enter the Exhibit Hall. You may begin entering the hall on Tuesday, March 18 at 12:00 noon ET. Aisle carpet will have already been removed at this point in time and your empty storage containers will be returned to your booth beginning at 12 noon on March 18th. We have scheduled access for the hall on Tuesday (3/18) from
12 noon-10:00 p.m. The hall will be open on Wednesday (3/19) and Thursday (3/20) from 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.

Please visit the Shepard website for the dismantling notice regarding move out procedures and how to access the hall. There will be security guards there to check you in. Please bring your name badge and photo identification. There will be no access through the Main Entrance.

If you are assigning authority to another individual or organization (other than Shepard), we need that from you, in writing, via email (cdardich@hinman.org).

Thank you for working with us in this challenging situation.

Also coming from the Hinman folks, news that refunds will be given on tickets for Saturday hands-on courses. The refunds will be given to ticket-holders in the manner the ticket (credit card, etc.) was bought within six weeks.

Has the GWCC given any information as to the extent of damage to booths? With ADEA and the ALD coming right around the corner some of these exhibitors might have to scramble to repair and ship their booth.
