Booth Numbers & Assignments

When shipping packages or ordering AV rentals, you do not need to provide a booth #. We will inform the hotel of your booth location and they will accommodate accordingly.

Shipping Packages To & From the Hotel

Regardless of carrier, all shipments to and from the Fairmont are handled by the FedEx office on site. Here are the two docs you need to download:

  1. FedEx Shipping Instructions
  2. FedEx CC Authorization Form

Important Notes

  • To cover handling fees, a completed Credit Card Authorization Form MUST be submitted to the Fairmont’s FedEx office.
  • Without this form on file, packages will NOT be released.
  • All packages properly labeled (with CC Authorization Form on file) will be brought directly to your booth.
  • Although packages will be left at your booth without you there to sign for them, you may miss your opportunity to audit your shipment with the FedEx staff who leave at 6 pm.
  • We HIGHLY recommend you go into or call the FedEx office well in advance of Sunday’s Sponsor Set-up to confirm payment arrangements are in order, and if desired, notify them what time you will be at your booth to take delivery and count your packages.
  • Track packages to avoid surprises.
  • Have all tracking numbers on hand. Without this information, it is impossible for the FedEx staff to locate missing items.
  • Schedule your shipment to arrive four days before the event start date to avoid additional storage fees.
  • Use only the name of the recipient who will be onsite to receive and sign for the packages.
  • Do NOT include any hotel contact name on your package.
  • Do not hesitate to contact the Fairmont’s FedEx office for clarification.
  • A FedEx rep will stop by your booth sometime on Monday to offer their assistance with your return shipments.

Within 72 hours of receiving your order, you will receive a quote including tax and service fee calculations. Once signed and returned, you will receive a Fairmont email directing you to a secure site to enter your credit card information. Your order is NOT confirmed until your credit card is processed for payment.
