New Exhibitors

Booths are sold out for 2022 and registration has been closed.


All orders, shipments etc. will be transferred to the 2022 dates and remain at the same price, therefore avoiding any increases and saving you 7-10% off the estimated 2022 prices.

If you have already picked up your freight:
If you have already picked up your freight from the AEX facility your weight credit will apply to the 2022 dates.
Nothing needs to be done by you. AEX will automatically transfer those for you. As a reminder, this is how those credits were calculated.

Freight picked up will receive an equal, nonrefundable weight credit for LEDucation 2022.
For example, 1,000 lbs. is picked up, a credit of up to 1,000 lbs. will be applied to your 2022 invoice. If you ship in 1,000 lbs. or less you will have no material handling costs. Weight in excess of the credit will be invoiced at then applicable rates.

If you have freight in storage with AEX:
AEX will continue to offer storage and delivery to the next show at no additional cost to you. If you would like to have your freight picked up please read below.

  • Email and to notify them that you want to have your freight picked up
  • Email your completed Bill of Lading (BOL). If you need a generic BOL, AEX can send one to you. A completed BOL is required for the warehouse to release freight to your carrier.
  • AEX will coordinate with you on an agreed upon date for pickup. This is necessary as their warehouse currently has minimal staff.
  • Arrange with your carrier to pick up.
  • A $300 pickup fee for the first 500lbs and $14 cwt thereafter will be added to your account. For example: 500lbs and under is $300. If you have 800lbs the fees are $300 + $14x3 = $342
  • Invoices must be paid in full before prior to freight being released for pickup

Pick up address:
AEX Convention Services
3093 English Creek Ave. Egg Harbor Twp., NJ 08234

If you have any question please email or phone (609) 272-1600.
