General Exposition Services is the Official General Contractor of Keystone Comic Con and will maintain an Exhibitor Service Center during set-p, show days and dismantling.  All other official show contractors will also be set up in this area as well.  All inquiries regarding booth services and orders should be made at the Exhibitor Service Center, including booth furnishings, labor, freight, utilities, and special show services.

Notice To Exhibitors Regarding Non-Official Contractors

The companies listed below have been appointed as the only Official Contractors providing the stated services for this event.  Show Management carefully considers the selection of Official Contractors based on quality of service, variety of products, price, and reputation. Since these contractors frequently work on more than one show with us, they value the business of our customers and provide quality products and services.

Some companies may misrepresent themselves as being an official contractor so PLEASE be sure to check the list in the exhibitor manual or give us a call.   

Things to watch for if you are considering the services of a non-official contractor are hidden charges for material handling, labor, and shipping that you might not pay otherwise (for example on carpet rental), control over delivery time, availability during move-in and leverage if something goes wrong.  

Also be advised that non-official contractors will need to abide by the Exhibitor Appointed Contractor procedures, provide insurance certificates, etc. in order to gain access to the Show Floor.

Exhibitor Alerts!!

Beware Of the Fair Guide

Reed Exhibitions and Keystone Comic Con do NOT support the Fair Guide — it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or Keystone Comic Con. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Fair Guide from Construct Data, its publisher, which use the name of Keystone Comic Con – do not be fooled. Construct Data currently operates out of Slovakia (it has previously operated out of Austria and Germany).

Beware Of the Expo-Guide

Reed Exhibitions and Keystone Comic Con Con also do NOT support the Expo-Guide — it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or Keystone Comic Con. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Expo-Guide from Commercial Online Manuals, its publisher, which use the name of Keystone Comic Con – again, do not be fooled. The Expo-Guide currently operates out of Mexico.

For further warnings on the Fair Guide and the Expo-Guide, please check out www.stopecg.org (the website was set up originally to deal with the European City Guides, but it now addresses the Fair Guide and Expo-Guide as well as several other similar matters).

And please remember – the only directories and guides affiliated with Reed Exhibitions are those published by Reed Exhibitions, including the official show directories. If you have any doubts about a directory/guide solicitation using the Keystone Comic Con name (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact a Keystone Comic Con salesperson ASAP.
