Loading Dock Info

of 1

The Harborside Event Center is easily accessible for move in and move out. Featuring 2 loading docks accessible from the south side of the convention center, via Bay Street and a Drive-In ramp located off of Dean Street.  Door sizes vary from 10-21’ tall to 12-20’wide

Move-in times will be assigned to you by show management. Please arrive at your scheduled move-in time in order to maintain schedule, as the schedule is heavily enforced.

Oversize vehicle parking will be available on the north side of the facility in the Boat Ramp Parking area.   Use of this area during load in/load out and during the event will be coordinated by Event Management and the Harborside Event Center Event Services Department on a case by case basis.

Dock coordinators will be positioned at the top and bottom of the loading dock ramp to control ingress/egress and enforce the following policies:

  • Exhibitors are given 20 minutes to unload.
  • Once unloaded, your vehicle must be removed from the loading dock.
  • Personal vehicles have the option of parking in the Harborside Event Center Parking area or City of Palms Garage at prevailing rates. Due to height restrictions, only personal vehicles can be parked inside the garage.
  • Forklifts are operated by Harborside Event Center personnel only and must be scheduled in advance of load-in.

The loading dock is managed by our Operations Department and can be contacted at 239-321-8120.
