Shipping to Raleigh Convention Center
Ship directly to the RCC: The Raleigh Convention Center does not charge a shipping and handling fee, but ask that all vendors/clients label all of their packages with the following information:
Raleigh Convention Center
500 S. Salisbury St.
Raleigh, NC 27601
NCRA / BOOTH #
Attn: Jill Caldwell
- Due to the amount of incoming and outgoing shipments from the facility, Raleigh Convention Center does not assume liability for missing packages or items.
- RCC asks that packages arrive within 48 hours of the conference move-in date as there are multiple events that rotate throughout the building on a daily basis and they do not store items prior to that time period. If packages arrive earlier than 48 hours, there is a possibility that the packages may be turned away, which may result in a delayed delivery.
- If the vendor / client ships packages out of the Convention Center, the vendor/client must provide all shipping materials (tape, labels, boxes, scissors, etc.) and arrange a pick up time and date with their carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc.).
If you are bringing your display with you please load in through the Salisbury doors. You will be allowed to pull up, unload your items at your table, then remove your car and park. Do NOT set up your booth without removing your vehicle from the front of the building.
