New York Trade Shows Javits Center


More than at any time since its opening in 1986, the Javits Center is fulfilling its mission as the Marketplace for the World®

Operated by the New York Convention Center Operation Corporation (NYCCOC), a public benefit corporation, the Javits Center helps drive the economies of New York State and New York City, generating an impressive $1.5 billion in economic activity and supporting 14,000 jobs. Nowhere in the country will you find a more sought-after, state-of-the-art facility—one with the extensive resources, services and staff of elite professionals dedicated to making every trade show, convention and special event a success.

With 840,000 square feet of flexible exhibition space occupying six city blocks along the scenic Hudson River, the facility can accommodate any size event, at any time. It’s no wonder that 35,000 companies choose it as their preferred venue every year. Underscoring its role as the country’s busiest convention center, the Javits Center recently completed a sweeping 5-year, $460 million renovation noted for the construction of the 110,000-square-foot Javits North exhibit hall and installation of the largest green roof in the Northeast. And when you consider that the new Javits Center sits at the nexus of Manhattan’s resurgent, bustling West Side neighborhood, it’s easy to see why whatever’s happening, happens here.

General Decorating Contractors are hired by your event manager. They are generally responsible for the physical planning of the event, the shipment and delivery of exhibition freight, the rental of furniture, carpets and other booth/exhibit equipment and the building and dismantling of most of the exhibits. General Decorating Contractors supply their own on site management and supervisors and hire freight moving and exhibit building labor from the Javits Center.

Exhibit Appointed Contractors (EAC's) are hired by exhibitors to build and dismantle exhibits. EAC's supply their own on-site management and hire exhibit building labor employed by the Javits Center. In order to hire labor directly from the Center, EAC's must open an account, which requires, among other things, the posting of a guarantee of payment bond or letters of credit and the fulfillment of certain insurance requirements.

Javits' Freight Handlers are responsible for loading and unloading trucks and delivering exhibitor freight and machinery to and from exhibitors' booth; loading and unloading decorating contractors' equipment to and from a marshalling point on the exhibit show floor; and perform rigging work with forklifts. Freight Handlers are hired from the Center by general decorating contractors. Freight Handlers work under the direction and supervision of the general decorating contractor and their shifts are determined and organized by the contractor. Freight Handlers are represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 807.

Work Hours:
Freight Handlers are paid straight time for the first eight (8) hours worked and overtime for any hours worked beyond eight (8) on Mondays through Fridays. They are paid time and a half for all hours worked on Saturdays and Sundays. They are paid double time for all hours worked on holidays. Freight Handler’s have 11 holidays: New Year's Day, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Election Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, and Christmas.

Freight Moving Exhibitors May Perform (Hand Carry Policy)
The Javits Center is the busiest convention center in the United States, and as a result, our operations can have a major impact on the surrounding community. As Manhattan’s West Side continues to evolve with new developments, clients of the Javits Center must make every effort to minimize our impact on neighboring streets during move-in and move-out periods. The hand carry policy, which is outlined below, is designed to maximize exhibitor move in and minimize traffic congestion.Exhibitors are reminded that the west side of 11th Avenue is officially designated a City bus lane, and vehicles illegally parked will be subject to a fine and/or vehicle towing by the New York City Police Department (NYPD). For move-in and/or move-out periods during large trade shows, the Javits Center will often request assistance from the NYPD to facilitate curbside standing of personal vehicles and small vans along the west side of 11th Avenue between West 34th Street and West 40th streets. However, this does not grant immunity from potential ticketing or vehicle towing to customers who ignore the regulations established by the Javits Center in conjunction with the NYPD and other regulatory agencies. In an effort to address these concerns and to streamline the hand carry process, effective immediately, the Javits Center’s Security and Safety Solutions Department will conduct all exterior security staffing, oversight and enforcement for hand carry operations.
