* To get directions, click on the link above and add your starting point

For Pier Plaza and Manhattan Ave., once you arrive at the event site, inform a staff member or volunteer of your company name and they will direct you where to park for unloading.  Pier Ave. event staff will be roaming up and down Pier Ave. to provide support and help.

Now That You’re Here


  • Volunteer Help: A limited number of volunteers will be available to help make the load-in process as smooth and efficient as possible. Please bring your own staff to help carry equipment and set up your booth.
  • Where to unload: Event staff/volunteers will direct you to your unload area (which is dependent on where you are placed in the event venue).  Please follow the directions of volunteers, we do not want to stack the cars making it impossible for other vendors to get in & out.
  • Bring Your Dollies.   They are VERY helpful to move heavy items for a distance.

During the Event

Helpful Tips for Event

  • You will be located on the street or a parking lot, this area tends to get hot on sunny days. We highly recommend dressing with the heat in mind. Don’t forget the sunscreen.
  • Hermosa Beach has decent cellular & limited Wi-Fi access. Should you try to access the internet with a tablet or Smartphone you may have difficulty. Please come with a back-up plan when communicating via phone & to capture contact information.
  • You will have the opportunity to interact with 2,000+ event attendees each day. This will be your opportunity to showcase your company and build those email lists and social media followers.
  • Walk around the event grounds and introduce yourself to other vendors, you never know what type of business relationships can develop.

During Event

  • It is expected each booth space will be maintained for all hours of the event, please make certain there is someone at the booth at all times to welcome attendees.
  • Information: Staff/volunteers will be floating throughout the venue to cater to any issues or questions you may have.


  • When the event ends, and attendees are clear of the area we will do our best to allow cars to enter for loading.  
  • Bring Your Dollies.   At the end of the day,  dollies are VERY helpful to move heavy items for a distance.  Cars will not be allowed to drive into the event space until all guests leave.
  • Take your time to make sure that you do not forget anything, break anything, or injure yourself during tear down. We are not responsible for items left behind.
  • All vendors are responsible for ensuring that all trash is removed from table space, and boxes are broken down.
  • Please put your trash in containers nearest your table.  DO NOT LEAVE TRASH for event staff and volunteers to handle.

Load Out

  • We will use the same areas as load-in. Event staff and volunteers will be available to help direct and load cars quickly & safely.
  • Before departing, do one last spot check to make certain nothing was forgotten. Hermosa Beach Chamber is not responsible for lost/left items.
