HOTEL SHIPPING INFO
FedEx Express comes every day around 3:30 PM. If you are shipping FedEx Express, just fill out the FedEx forms that will be available at the hotel’s front desk.
FedEx Ground DOES NOT come on a daily basis, so if you are shipping FedEx Ground, you will need to schedule a pick up, as well as provide the FedEx shipping documents/labels.
UPS also DOES NOT come on a daily basis, so if you are shipping via UPS, you will need to schedule a pick up, as well as provide the shipping documents/labels.
Typically, if you are already a UPS or FedEx customer, the driver can bring the label with them when they pick up.

TABLE LOCATION – While we strive to place all exhibitors in a location that will benefit the maximum potential of what the show has to offer, we understand that some exhibitors will not be satisfied with the location of the table. If an exhibitor would like to request a table location change for future shows, they must submit a request IN WRITING via email to Tamar@R1Promotions.com or in person directly to Tamar at the show. Exhibitors cannot request any table changes for the current show.
EXOTIC/ENDANGERED SPECIES – Any parts of whale, bear, elephant, condor, eagle, rhino, or any other animal that is on any endangered species list cannot be sold or transported into the state of California. Mammoth, walrus, and wart hog are also now illegal in California. It is the exhibitors responsibility to make sure none of these materials are present at the show. Failure to follow the rules will result in the exhibitor having to remove the items from their table. In extreme cases, the exhibitor may be asked to leave the show with no refund for the table fee.
SECURITY – The exhibitor is responsible for the security of their table and products/belongings/property during all hours of the show. At no time will the show promoter or any representative of the show assume any responsibility for the security of the exhibitors’ property. Overnight security will be provided, but does not guarantee the security of your property. Exhibitors are required to obtain a specific insurance policy for the show to cover any loss/livability.
FIREARMS – Absolutely NO fire arms are allowed for display, for sale, or to be shown or carried in the show. This is a zero tolerance policy. If a fire arm is seen during any time of the show, the individual who possesses the fire arm will be IMMEDIATELY escorted out of the show and not allowed to return.
GENERAL RULES – Only knives that are legal in the state of California can be offered for sale. Switchblades over 2″ are illegal for sale in the state, except to Military and Law Enforcement officers who are on active duty. Gravity knives are also illegal, including butterfly knives. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to make sure the items that are offered for sale at the show are legal. Failure to follow the rules will result in the exhibitor having to remove the items from their table. In extreme cases, the exhibitor may be asked to leave the show with no refund for the table fee.
CANCELLATION POLICY – Tables purchased for any R1 Promotions shows are non-refundable. A credit can be applied (less a 25% service charge) to the same show that takes place the following year only.
