GES Exposition Services has been selected as the official service contractor for the Minnesota Education Job Fair. GES’s Customer Service Representative for our event is Ashley Roscher. She can be reached at 763.488.5345 or by email at to answer questions about material handling and freight.

Shipping Materials Prior to the Fair

Any carrier can be used to ship materials prior to the fair but it is strongly discouraged from shipping directly to the Minneapolis Convention Center since they will only accept freight during the event move in on Friday, April 21. If you are using GES to ship your display or materials, freight labels are posted on the job fair website as well as a bill of lading.

  • Direct shipments to the Convention Center will be accepted ONLY during exhibitor move-in hours which is Friday, April 21.
  • It is highly recommended that advance shipments be directed to the GES warehouse.
  • Advance shipments will be accepted at the GES warehouse up to 30 days prior to the fair.
  • Advance shipments must be sent pre-paid; collect shipments will be refused.
  • Advance shipments will be delivered to your exhibit booth prior to the start of the fair.
  • Material handling rates and more detailed information about shipping and material handling are located on the website.
  • The Estimated Material Handling Order Form and the payment and credit charge authorization must be completed and faxed to GES at the time you ship your display

Shipping Materials After the Fair

A GES Service Representative will be available during the fair to facilitate shipment of materials back to your organization.

  • An Outbound Bill of Lading must be completed and turned in at the GES Service Desk for all outbound shipments.  Do not leave the bill of lading in your booth.
  • A credit card is required for all shipping services; a form will be available at the GES Service Desk.
