GENERAL BUILDING POLICIES:

1) Signage Package: A complete sign hanging package must be submitted for CCC Operations approval. This includes all signs hung in the upper lobbies, street level, and lower ballroom areas. Information must include the materials used to hang the signs and size. Decorations, signs, banners, and similar materials may not be taped, nailed, stapled or otherwise fastened to ceilings, doors, walls, glass, columns, painted surfaces, fabric or decorative walls. Special rules apply when there is intent to cover the CCC permanent directional signs and/or graphics. Signage package includes all outdoor welcome, organization, and shuttle bus signs. No sponsor banners will be permitted on the exterior of the building or visible from the outside of the facility. All interior banners will read from the inside of CCC. CCC Operations will determine the appropriate method of attachment/hanging for all approved positions and supervise all contractor work for compliance, when necessary. CCC Operations has pre-approved locations for signage; however, all signage is subject to SMG’s final approval.

2) Work Activity: The General Services Contractor (GSC) work will only occur during contracted event dates and times unless pre-approved and authorized in writing from CCC Operations. Unauthorized move in and/or move out will subject the GSC to current daily rental rates for space occupied.

3) Damage Walk-Through: CCC Operations and a representative of the GSC will conduct a pre and post damage walk through the exhibit hall and/or any other areas of the facility where the GSC will be working.

4) Adhesive Stickers/Decals: No pressure-adhesive stickers or decals or similar promotional items may be distributed in the building. Labor costs to remove adhesive stickers and decals will be charged.

All equipment and freight should be transported utilizing the freight elevator and/or service elevators. 6) Floor Protection: Any distribution of freight, pallets or other equipment requiring the need for material handling

equipment on facility carpeting or tile will require the use of floor protection to be provided and installed by the GSC. Locations where pallets or crates are dropped or high-lifts operated may require a bed of GSC carpet or plywood on top of the floor protection to further protect facility carpet and/or tile.

PUBLIC AREAS:

Masking Requirements: The CCC is a multi-purpose facility, and often there will be more than one event at one time in the building. Therefore, the GSC might be required to mask off their set up or tear down so it is not visible to the general public:

Specifications for Creative:

The digital billboards are capable of simple text messages or advanced graphic animation. Please create artwork in both sizes to ensure maximum exposure of your event on all 7 digital billboards. All messages run in ten (10) second loops. 2 file sizes need to be created:

*Images must include event name, website event date(s), and location (either Colorado Convention Center or Bellco Theatre) on all artwork submitted.

Submitting Files:

 Include the name of the event and identify whether the file is for the large or small digital billboard in the name. For example, “Hygiene Expo 2011 BIG.jpg”

 Upload files at http://denverconvention.com/site/marketing-opportunities-outdoor or send them directly to

mkusek@denverconvention.com.

IMPORTANT: Notify Morgan Kusek that the files have been uploaded by emailing

mkusek@denverconvention.com. In the body of the email, please include the name of the file and dates of the event.

Exhibitor and Sponsor Opportunities: If you have exhibitors and/or sponsors who would like to purchase advertising on the digital billboards during your event, please have them please contact Keith Dillion at 303.292.2450 or

keith@theadfocus.com

Tips and Guidelines…

 Keep it simple – limit text and images to items that enhance the message.

Bold is beautiful – Use bold font that is easy to read. Keep it to 10 words or less.

Dark backgrounds with bright lettering work best.

If I give you direction, will you design it for me?

At this time, the CCC cannot provide design services.

I contracted my event through Visit Denver, don’t they provide this for me?

Events contracted by Visit Denver do receive standard welcome messaging provided and designed by Visit Denver. However, additional messaging promoting the event is permissible. Please contact your Convention Services Manager with any questions.

I designed the file and it looks really tiny. This can’t be right.

If you follow the specs, the file will be right. If you can easily read the font on your computer from a few feet back (when zoom is at 100%), you will be able to read the sign from the street.

Can you accept any other formats besides JPG or WMV?

No, we cannot.

What dates will my message run?

For large scale public ticketed shows, your message will start running when tickets go on sale (up to 60 days prior to the show date). For tradeshows, conventions or private meetings, your message will be displayed on event days only. Exceptions to this may be made on a case by case basis. Contact Morgan Kusek at mkusek@denverconvention.com or 303.228.8230.

Can exhibitors, vendors and sponsors advertise on the digital billboards?

Complimentary messaging is only available to promote the event itself. For example, “Welcome Hygiene Expo Sponsored

by Pepsi” is acceptable messaging. However, “Buy Pepsi at the Hygiene Expo” is NOT acceptable for non-paid

messaging. If you have exhibitors, vendors and/or sponsors who would like to purchase advertising on the digital billboard during your event, please have them contact Keith Dillion at 303.292.2450 or keith@theadfocus.com.

I have an exclusive sponsor and don’t want a competitor advertised on the digital billboards at the same time. What can I do?

Please contact Morgan Kusek at mkusek@denverconvention.com or 303.228.8230.

I’m holding an event at another venue. Can I advertise that event as well?

Complimentary messaging is limited to only events in the venues owned and operated by Denver’s Division of Arts & Venues Denver. On rare occasions, paid advertising for events at other venues may be approved. Please contact Keith Dillion at 303.292.2450 or keith@theadfocus.com.

I am watching the digital billboard and I do not see my message displayed.

Please contact Morgan Kusek at mkusek@denverconvention.com or 303.228.8230.

My event ends at 10:00am. Can I make sure the digital billboards aren’t displaying my message after we’re gone?

Yes. Please mention any special requests to Morgan Kusek when you submit your files.

Additional Questions? Please contact Morgan Kusek at mkusek@denverconvention.com or 303.228.8230.

Please see examples on next page.

The Colorado Convention Center reserves the right to edit messaging. Please keep messaging appropriate.

Graduation: Runs on day of graduation only.

If you chose to not create artwork due to limited resources, we can include your event on our upcoming events billboard. Please arrange with Morgan Kusek if you would like to be listed.
