15. Can I bring my child?

The BUILDEX tradeshow floor is intended to be a professional Business-to-Business environment and includes live onsite demos, often involving heavy machinery — for safety reasons we highly recommend that children do not attend.

Tradeshow floor move-in and move-out are deemed a construction work zone due to the heavy lift machinery and overhead rigging. During this time children under 16 are not permitted on the tradeshow floor and safety equipment must be worn by all staff.
