Self (POV) Load In/Out

Are you driving your exhibit personally to the Music City Center for AISTech 2021? See below for procedures, times, and guidelines to make the Privately Owned Vehicle process an easy one:

Privately Owned Vehicle (POV)

Cars, pick-up trucks, vans, and other trucks primarily designed for passenger use and not cargo use that do not have commercial tags or lettering on the vehicle, qualify as a POV.

All exhibitors are required to check in at the Fern Marshaling Yard to obtain a dock unloading/loading pass. Exhibitors will be given a pass and be directed to the loading docks off Koreans Veterans Boulevard when there is space available. Upon access to the loading docks, Music City Center Security will assign the dock area for their use, and notify the time allotted for move in and out. A thirty-minute time limit will be imposed so that all exhibitors have enough time to unload their vehicles.

Exhibitors may unload their POV using their own equipment (example, two or four-wheeled dollies, hand cart, etc.). Hydraulic or motorized equipment is not permitted to use.

Additional information and images can be found on OneView, by clicking the link at the bottom of this email "Go to OneView".

The Address for the Marshaling Yard is:
501 South 2nd Street
Nashville, TN 37213

Cart Load Service

If you arrive with a show site delivery other than a POV you will not qualify for this service and will be redirected to the loading dock area or to the marshaling yard; applicable material handling rates will apply. The cartload service is designated for loads that can be finished in a single trip and are sized approximately 3 ft. wide x 5 ft. long x 3 ft. high. No individual cartload may exceed 250 lbs. This service is intended for small exhibiting materials. One cartload per POV. Items will be moved from the POV to the exhibitor booth space.

Cartload service users and POV for loading out at the close of the show will be required to obtain a line pass. Line passes will be available at the AIST/Fern POV Check-in Area at the Marshaling Yard beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 1. Please be aware that move-out does not begin until 4:00 p.m. and that show rules state that booths should not be broken down until show close. It is also requested that your vehicle not be brought to POV check-in until your booth is fully packed and ready to load.
