3: bring it yourself

  • This is a viable option if you have few materials. Due to union regulations, you may only move in items that can be carried by hand - without the use of dollies, hand trucks or other mechanical equipment.

  • If you require union labour to assist you, please contact NamesCon producers.

  • If you are dropping off promotional items, banners or anything else for NamesCon, please deliver to the Bell Desk at Tropicana Front Desk, marked to the attention of Shallom Johnson.

 

Shipping Options (Outbound)
