Located in the heart of the Southeast, Charlotte lies within the southern Piedmont of North Carolina, along the state’s border with South Carolina. Charlotte is the largest and most accessible city between Washington, D.C., and Dallas, Texas. Due to its mid-Atlantic location, getting to Charlotte is easy from anywhere in the country or the world, hence its nickname, “the International Gateway to the South.”
Solicitation or distribution of any literature or other materials is not allowed in the Charlotte Convention Center or on its grounds.
No Smoking Policy
No smoking in exhibit hall, vendor areas, and hallways in the Charlotte Convention Center.
Shopping the Merchant Mall
The vendors in our Merchant Mall are from many different states. When they handle sales, your credit card will appear to have sales from many different states. Recently, some credit card companies have been alerted to all of these transactions in so many different states that they put a hold on the credit card. Please take a minute to notify your credit card company (before you come to the show) to tell them you will be attending an event with vendors from many states so they don’t hold or cancel your credit card while you are at the show. With your credit card company alerted, you can let the shopping begin.
