Automobile and Small Utility Vehicle (ASUV) Program

The McCormick Place ASUV program is available at predetermined dates and times as provided by Show Management. McCormick Place encourages Exhibitors to participate in the ASUV program using one of three options listed below. When participating in the ASUV program, only specific types of vehicles can be used to transport exhibitor material to the dock area. Also, only specific types of transporting devices can be used to transport booth material to your booth space on the show floor. These specific vehicle types and transporting devices are noted below.

Options, Guidelines and FAQs

ASUV Frequently Asked Questions

Option 1 – Self-Loading/Unloading ASUV

• Visit www.truticket.com/asuv/index.htm to find the available times and dates for your event's ASUV and register your vehicle. Preregistration saves time and is required to avoid on-site registration. Vehicle information such as make, model and license plate will be required.

• Upon registration, Exhibitors will be emailed a Check-In Pass for move-in and a separate Check-Out Pass for move-out. On both your designated ASUV move-in day and your ASUV move-out day, you must first check in with the ASUV manager located at the entrance to Lot B.

• Upon arriving at Lot B, you will be asked to exchange your pre-printed ASUV Check-In or Check-Out Pass for a Dock Pass which allows you to proceed up to the ASUV dock area for your event. You will not be allowed access to the dock without a Dock Pass.

• While parked in the dock, Exhibitor staff must work as team of at least two people and one person must remain with the vehicle at all times.

• Vehicles must be unloaded within a 20 minute period.

• Exhibitor or Exhibitor's employees are defined as any person who has been employed by the exhibitor as full-time employee for a minimum of six months before the show's opening (be prepared to provide proof of full-time employment status upon request).

• If your vehicle does not meet the criteria below, you will need to follow Marshaling Yard instructions for truck check-in (material handling charges will be based on published kit rates).

Option 2 – ASUV Valet

• Visit www.truticket.com/asuv/indexv.htm to find the available times and dates for your event's ASUV and register your vehicle for "ASUV Valet". The ASUV Valet program is available during your event's ASUV move-in only. ASUV Valet registration concludes five (5) days prior to the first ASUV move-in day.

• Upon registration, Exhibitors will be emailed a Check-In Pass indicating "VALET" and a separate Check-Out Pass for the move-out (note that the ASUV Valet is not available for move-out). On both your designated ASUV move-in day and your ASUV move-out day, you must first check in with the ASUV manager located at the entrance to Lot B.

• Upon arriving at Lot B, you'll be asked to exchange your pre-printed "Valet" Check-In Pass for a Dock Pass. You will not be allowed access to the dock area without a Dock Pass.

• ASUV Valet participants are given express service to the dock area.

• At the designated dock, the Exhibitor turns the vehicle over to the Valet Attendant. The Exhibitor receives a claim check from the Attendant. The Attendant cannot unload vehicle but will stay with the vehicle until vehicle is unloaded.

• Once unloaded, the ASUV vehicle is driven to the parking facility by the ASUV Attendant where it will remain until the Exhibitor is ready to leave. The Exhibitor can choose to pick-up the vehicle directly from the parking facility at any time or have it returned to the designated dock prior to the end of the ASUV move-in period.

• ASUV Valet Service is complimentary with a prepaid Guaranteed Exhibitor Parking Permit. Prepaid Exhibitor parking is available at http://truticket.com/mccormick. There is a charge for ASUV Valet service without prepaid Exhibitor parking. Non-Registered Exhibitors may pay for ASUV Valet upon check-in at Lot B.

• Vehicles must be unloaded within a 20 minute period.

• Exhibitor or Exhibitor's employees are defined as any person who has been employed by the exhibitor as full-time employee for a minimum of six months before the show's opening (be prepared to provide proof of full-time employment status upon request).

• If your vehicle does not meet the criteria below, you will need to follow Marshaling Yard instructions for truck check-in (material handling charges will be based on published kit rates).

Option 3 – Exhibitor Guaranteed Parking (Hand Carry Items)

• Visit truticket.com/mccormick to find the available times and dates for your event and purchase a Guaranteed Exhibitor Parking Permit.

• Upon purchase, Exhibitors will be shipped/mailed an Exhibitor Parking Permit valid at Lot A or Lot C.

• Upon arriving at the designated parking facility, scan the permit in the card reader to gain access. Exhibitor parking does not utilize the dock area.

• Park the vehicle in the first available space and transport items through pedestrian building access to the show floor. Only non-motorized, non-hydraulic, hand trucks and dollies may be used to transport items from your vehicle to the show floor.
