George Fern Event Services
New this year! Based on feedback from exhibitors, the OAB has negotiated a flat rate of $60 for exhibitors using George Fern's materials handling service. This represents a significant savings over last year’s minimum charge of $120. The $60 rate covers George Fern’s handling for both in-bound and out-bound shipping. Exhibitors are responsible for the cost of shipping to and from George Fern.
