Pack-in and Pack-out detail

  • If you are planning to bring any heavy items (20 > kg) that need a forklift.

Other factors to consider.

Carriageworks is a heritage venue built in the late 1800s, which means there are strict guidelines that need to be adhered to to ensure Carriageworks’ heritage assets are to be protected at all times.

  • Uneven flooring/surfaces are present in some areas of the venue (i.e trapdoors, floor grates, cracked concrete). Please ensure you watch where you are walking, and ensure all access equipment movements are conducted with a spotter.
  • As Carriageworks is a heritage venue, strictly no items (including gaffer/duct tape, pins, nails, staples, markers, blue-tac or other) may be affixed to any part of the venue. Gaffer tape cannot be used to secure cables either. Cable trays only please.
  • No venue items are to be touched or altered in any way by an exhibitor – please see ArchiPro's event manager if there is an item that needs attention. Fixtures marked with a red tag are heritage fixtures and must not be touched or altered in any way.
  • Exhibitors may not permanently mark, paint, drill or otherwise deface any part of the venue or make any alterations to the structure, fittings, decorations or furnishings of the venue. This includes the concrete flooring as it is unsealed.
  • Within the venue are 'barndoors' for load-in and attendee  – please note that these can only be opened and closed by Carriageworks' senior technician. Please see ArchiPro's event manager if these are needing to be opened or closed.

If there are any uncertainties regarding the venue and what can and cannot be done, please reach out to ArchiPro's event manager: any person or exhibitor fails to follow the above protocols and damage occurs, the person responsible will be held liable.
