DeVos Place Convention Center
These high-profile events typically attract over 1,700 students and alumni from all colleges and majors, and over 230 regional and national employers with thousands of jobs, internships, clinical and co-op opportunities.
Parking vouchers will be provided in the ON-SITE welcome packet for each paid and registered attendee and are valid for any Grand Rapids Municipal parking lots (view applicable lots). These vouchers are to be used upon EXITING the parking structure. Recommended parking is in the DeVos Place Ramp located underneath the DeVos Place Convention Center (H on map) or the Government Center Ramp (J on map).
It is recommended that vendors unload materials in the loading zone near the main entrance of the convention center on Michigan Ave. Student ambassadors will be available here as well as in the DeVos Place Ramp to assist with unloading and transporting display materials.
In accordance with DeVos Place Convention Center's exhibitor guidelines, move-in or move-out through the DeVos Place convention center lobbies is strictly limited to hand-carried items. The general rule of thumb for items that may be hand carried is that if you could legally bring it on an airplane, you can take it through our front doors. All load in and load out of larger/heavier show materials must be done through the loading docks.
DeVos Place Convention Center does not provide storage nor arrange shipping of exhibit materials. All shipping and freight handling needs to be contracted through DeVos Place’s in-house decorator, Art Craft Display Group, at 616-791-8024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
