Yes! Many vendors like to set up in the same space each year so that returning customers will know where to find them. If you would like to set up in the same space as the previous year, you MUST note it on your entry form. Space #’s will not be saved if you skip a year.

The show floor is very fluid & constantly changing right up until show time based on features & attractions that we add for each year. It is not possible to choose your space from a list of open space #’s. However, if you would like to request a certain floor or general area, please note it on your Entry Form & we will do our best to accommodate you. 10×10’s are not eligible for location requests.

Unload your booth items & product 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 booth.

The event is open to the publice until 6pm Sunday evening & paid spectators will be in the building until that time. Vendors are not allowed to start breaking down their booth until the show closes & are not allowed to move out until the official move out announcement is made by the event producers.

Any vendor who packs up & moves out before the official move out announcement is made will not be allowed back as a vendor at any future MotorSports Productions, Inc. event.

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 Birmingham 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.
