Loading Dock Access

The exhibition centre loading dock facilities are on two levels. Access is via a slip-lane from the south bound lane on Darling Drive. A vehicle inspection check point with a boom gate is located at the bottom of the ramp on Darling Drive where you will be asked which show and hall your stand is located in.

AWRE is located on Level 1, Hall 1.

The loading dock entrance for Level 1, is located on the Darling Drive  side of the venue. The dock operates on a one-way circulation system to maximise efficiency and a unload limit of 20 minutes per vehicle applies. Each exhibition hall can be accessed via a 5.6 metres wide x 4.3 metres high loading dock door. The underground car park can be accessed via lift 12 to deliver your items to your stand.

AWRE is running a scheduled move in and move out for any vehicles requiring access to the loading dock, this includes couriers, stand builders and any parties involved in the set up and pack down of your stand. If you require access to the loading dock for any reason, you must book a time by contacting Gaffneys. Failure to book a move in or move out time will result in delays accessing the loading dock.

Please note the following:

  • Access to the loading dock during build up must be booked with Gaffneys the official logistics supplier.
  • Parking is not permitted on the loading dock area.
  • All vehicles under 1.8m high will be directed to the car park to unload and will not be provided access to the loading dock.
