Loading Dock Policies

Loading Truck

The Pasadena Convention Center is easily accessible for move in and move out. Featuring an underground loading bay with 8 docks and 5 freight elevators, the loading dock is accessible from the west side of the convention center, via Marengo Avenue.
 
Move-in times will be assigned to you by show management. Please arrive at your scheduled move-in time in order to maintain schedule, as the schedule is heavily enforced.
 
Any early arrivals will have the option of parking in the Pasadena Convention Center Parking Garage at prevailing rates. Due to height restrictions, only personal vehicles can be parked inside the garage.
 
Oversize vehicle parking will be available on the south side of the loading dock.  Use of this area during load in/load out and during the event will be coordinated by Event Management and the Pasadena Convention Center Parking Department on a case by case basis.
 
All vehicles entering and exiting the loading dock will be required to drive in head first. The southwest corner of the loading dock has been designated as a turn around area.  Vehicles will be able to use this area to turn around in order to back into the loading bays.
 
Dock coordinators will be positioned at the top and bottom of the loading dock ramp to control ingress/egress and enforce the following policies:

  • Exhibitors are given 30 minutes to unload.
  • Once unloaded, your vehicle must be removed from the loading dock.
  • Personal vehicles have the option of parking in the Pasadena Convention Center Parking Garage at prevailing rates.
  • Freight elevators are operated by Pasadena Convention Center personnel only.

 

The loading dock is managed by our Security Office and can be contacted at 626-395-0243.
