Loading Dock Access

Loading Dock Access

Fine Food Australia is running a scheduled move in and move out for any vehicles requiring access to the loading dock. This includes couriers, stand builders and any parties involved in the set up and pack down of your stand. If you require access to the loading dock for any reason, you must book a time by contacting GEL Events. Failure to book a move in or move out time will result in delays accessing the loading dock. If you turn up outside the allocated time you will be asked to wait or potentially turned away.

A copy of the move in and move out schedule along with further details will be circulated closer to the show.

  • Be delivered by courier or freight forwarder to the loading docks
  • Be received on-site by an exhibitor stand representative. We are unable to sign possession of goods on your behalf.
  • Have the correct Loading Dock Delivery Label attached.

Please note the following:

  • Access to the loading dock during build up must be booked with GEL Events the official freight and logistics supplier
  • Parking is not permitted on the loading dock area
  • All vehicles under 1.8m high will be directed to the car park to unload and will not be provided access to the loading dock
