Move In

On your application, please select the time range that works best for you.

We work very hard to coordinate your move in time based on your selection. You will receive a specific move in time via email before move in day. Please show up at your assigned time. The show comes together like a puzzle. If you are early, we will not be ready for you. You will have to wait & will make it more difficult for others who are on time to make in to their space. If you are late, we will not be ready for you. You will have to wait & will make it more difficult for others who are on time to make in to their space.

If you bring a a trailer into the building, the MAXIMUM unload time until the trailer MUST exit the building is 1 hour. Unload your vehicle & display into your space, then take your trailer to the trailer lot. You can return to finish setting up your display. Do not leave your trailer in the building while you completely set up your display.

Electrical Service

If your display uses electricity it must be rented directly from the Convention Center. The Convention Center will have a Service Desk set up next to our Show Registration area on Thursday during Move-In. You MUST indicate on your application if your display requires electricity to insure that your vehicle is placed in a spot that is accessible to a power outlet.

Exhibitors in our Chattanooga, TN show can get DISCOUNTED PRICING by pre-registering for electrical service online.

Chattanooga Convention Center
Chestnut St. Load In Dock at 13th St, Chattanooga, TN

Host Hotel

We partner with the Chattanooga Marriott hotel to offer our exhibitors and guests a special show rate. The Chattanooga Marriott is connected to the Convention Center so that guests of the hotel can enter the show without having to encounter street traffic or inclement weather.

Trailer Parking

FREE trailer parking is available for exhibitors. Space is limited so please park tight. You may leave your tow vehicle connected or disconnect it to use as transportation throughout the weekend, however, if you leave your tow vehicle in the trailer lot it will not be accessible until Sunday evening. Use the interactive map for turn by turn directions to the trailer lot.

Display Requirements

Every vehicle must be surrounded by a display / crowd barrier that includes ground cover underneath the vehicle.
  • Most exhibitors use carpet, carpet squares, vinyl or vinyl squares as ground cover.
  • The edges of your ground cover must be taped down. Most exhibitors use Duck Tape that matches their ground cover.
  • The outer dimensions of your display should be the exact same as your booth size: 10’x10′, 10’x20′ or 20’x20′.
  • All 20’x20′ displays must be pre-approved and must include a “Kick Guard”: A solid border along the floor of your display.
Nice displays don't have to be expensive or labor intensive. Here are a few things to keep in mid when designing your display:
  • Your display frames your vehicle, much like a framed piece of artwork. A nice display will strengthen a vehicle & a poor display can detract from it.
  • Keep your display low so it doesn’t block the view of your vehicle. There is no official requirement, we have found that 6″ to 24″ works well.
  • If you are using ropes or chain, your display will need a minimum of one upright stanchion every 10′ (at least 6 stanchions for a 10’x20′ display).
  • If you plan on using rope or chain, make sure that your stanchion’s bases are broad enough and heavy enough to support the weight of the rope or chain “pulling” at them. Your display must be stable enough to stand on its own and not fall if bumped by a spectator. Bases can be taped down for extra safety, but do not depend on the tape to hold up the stanchions.
Want to create your own display? Check out the gallery for inspiration.
If you do not have a display and creating one is not possible for you, weekend display rentals are available.

• Exhibitors in the Chattanooga, TN show can rent display packages from Showtime Event Rentals.

• Car space numbers are not pre-assigned.  You will provide your actual space number to Showtime Event Rentals on Thursday during Move-In.

• Rented displays will be “Movie Theater” style ropes & stanchions.

GoldStar Street Series Competition

The GoldStar Street Series is a competition exclusive to MotorSports Productions’ World of Wheels. We began this competition in 1997 in response to the many inquires we had about showing daily street driven vehicles at our indoor events. The GoldStar Street Series competition does not judge the undercarriage or trunk of a vehicle. Only the paint, body, and interior are judged. In addition, vehicles are not penalized because of minor road wear which cannot been seen by the casual observer.

Classification

The vehicles are classed and placed in categories by ISCA Judging Officials. The classes & categories are similar to ISCA classifications.

Awards

GoldStar Street Series winners and runners up will be awarded GoldStar Trophies. GoldStar is not a part of the ISCA competition.

If you are not sure which competition is right for you, we would encourage you to compete in ISCA Competition.

Due to heavy congestion & traffic during move in, parking on the dock, even for a short time, is not permitted. FREE Trailer Parking is provided to all exhibitors.

The Loading Dock is controlled by the Convention Center & will actively be receiving deliveries throughout the weekend.

We are bound by the Chattanooga Convention Center’s guidelines which do not permit animals except service animals in accordance to the ADA title II and III Law.” Read more about the ADA title II and III Law at The ADA’s Service Animal Page.

Move Out will begin after the show is closed & spectators have been cleared from the building. We will make announcements & let you know when you may begin taking down your display. By order of Chattanooga Fire Codes, no cars will be allowed to crank up until the Loading Dock roll up doors have been raised. When the doors come up, vehicles that are being driven out are allowed to exit first. Once the “drivers” have exited the building, small trailers are allowed in & then large trailers after that. There is no need to be in a impatient or in a rush; Move Out goes pretty quickly & the show floor will be empty within a few hours.
