BCC Loading Dock Policies
The Convention Center loading dock is located on Pearl Street, between Huron and Court Streets. Access hours and schedule are determined on an event basis. Please contact show management and the event coordinator, or reference our Facility Guide for more information.
1. The BCC timekeepers and security guards are authorized to control all traffic patterns and movements during an event’s move-in and move-out. All decorators, exhibitors, and show personnel are requested to follow their directions.
2. Exhibitor vehicles are authorized to enter the facility for loading and unloading purposes only.
3. During move-in and move-out, vehicles may not be left unattended on either the exhibit floor, exit/entrance ramps, or the loading dock for an extended length of time.
4. Once an exhibitor has unloaded, the vehicle is to be removed from the facility immediately. Parking is available in several adjoining lots and within a reasonable distance from the facility.
5. ANY VEHICLE PARKED IN AN UNAUTHORIZED AREA WILL BE TICKETED AND TOWED AT THE OWNER’S EXPENSE.
Sending Shipments for a show? Read below for IMPORTANT information:
The Buffalo Convention Center cannot accept advance freight shipments for any customer, exhibitor, or delegate of the client.
Shipments arriving prior to the show without proper arrangements with the Center will be sent to the drayage contractor at customer/exhibitor risk and expense. If a smaller event does not have a drayage company or service contractor, a shipment may be accepted with the approval of the Executive Director or the service manager. This will be done at the customer/exhibitor’s risk, and storage fees may be charged at prevailing rates. No shipments will be accepted more than three days prior to the event.
The Buffalo Convention Center does not provide for exhibit crate storage unless an area is specifically reserved for that use. * C.O.D. deliveries will not be accepted by the Center. If packages have been OK’d for delivery by the appropriate manager, please address them in the following manner:
