Rigging (Exclusive rigging)
Theatrical rigging and banner hanging carry significant liabilities for the responsible party and it is our goal to eliminate any
potential problems or hazards before they occur.
Any display of banners, decorations or theatrical equipment that hangs from the ceiling must be approved and
hung by GCCC personnel.
Rigging plots that show location and weight are required of all items hung from the ceiling.
Show decorators may hang aisle signs within the exhibit hall if approved by the GCCC and the signs do not weigh
more than 75 pounds.
