Animals and Pets
Animals and pets are not permitted in the building without prior approval of HC Management. Approval is determined on the basis of whether the animal or pet is an integral part of an exhibit or performance. Service animals are permitted as long as it is on a leash, within a pen, or under similar control.
You are responsible for any damage caused by your staff, contractors, exhibitors or attendees. Walkthroughs will be held before and at the conclusion of your event to ensure no damage is done.

Nothing may be nailed, stapled, tacked, or otherwise affixed to ceilings, painted surfaces, glass, brick walls, fire sprinklers, columns, fabric, floors, decorative walls, permanent directional signs, or podiums throughout the building. All signs should be professional in nature and must meet the approval of HC Management. Hand-lettered signs are not allowed. Neither glitter nor confetti is permitted. No décor or signage may be affixed to the exterior of the facility. Fees will be assessed if materials from your event are left in or on facility property.
Floorplans will be designed for your event and presented to you for approval. Upon approval, the Event Manager must then submit the plans for fire safety approval.

Any changes made after approval of the Fire Inspector will result in a $125 change fee for changes made a day or more before the event. A $250 change fee will be assessed for changes made on the day of the event.
