Rules and Regulations

BACK TO THE BRICKS® Chrome and Ice Event

General Rules and Regulations
Both arenas at the Dort Federal Event Center will be utilized for this event, allowing approximately 100 vehicles. Owners of all cars and trucks are welcome to apply as exhibitors; however, due to high interest in this event and limited space, not all applicants will be selected for the show.

This is an indoor event.  Therefore, the following conditions are required for all vehicles participating in the Back to the Bricks Chrome and Ice Event:

  • If your vehicle is selected to participate in the event, you will be notified and provided with detailed exhibiting instructions.
  • All vehicles must be capable of starting, running and moving under their own power.
  • Only one vehicle per owner will be allowed.
  • Bring your registration (mandatory for all exhibits)
  • All exhibitor booth arrangements shall conform in all respects to the dimensions and height requirements specified by the event committee.  Booth size cannot exceed the space allotted.  Exhibits shall be arranged to prevent obstructing the general view or access to surrounding displays, aisles, emergency exits and public spaces within the exhibit area.

This is a fun-filled classic car event.  The top twenty-five vehicles will be determined by adult ticket holders through a voting process. All top twenty-five vehicles will be awarded $225.00.  

Exhibit Space Allocation and Requirements
All exhibit spaces will be 12 feet wide.  The placement of vehicles on the show floor will be random, based on each exhibitor’s arrival.  If you want to be placed next to a specific vehicle,  they must arrive and be in line with you.  Exhibitor area cannot not exceed the allotted space.  All signage is limited to 40 x 20 inches.  Exhibitors are responsible for their own barriers/stanchions they may require.  As all vehicles will be parked on Astroturf, all owners must bring a drip pan to collect any potential leaking fluids (owners will be responsible for any damage to the surface under their cars).  Lights, light bars, displays above vehicles, and sound are not permitted.  Seating within the exhibit space is allowed with two chairs only and must be at the back of vehicles.  Coolers, cleaning materials and any other loose items must be kept out of sight during the event.  Beverages are allowed in the exhibit area, but no food is permitted.  (Note:  There are food vendors and seating available in the hall connecting the two arenas.)

As exhibitors are on display, along with their vehicles, all exhibitors must adhere to a reasonable standard of dress and conduct (clean, presentable attire). All vehicles and displays must be in good taste, and no obscene or suggestive items will be allowed. The event committee shall be the sole arbiter of the exhibitors’ conduct. Any exhibitor determined to be in violation who fails to correct identified fault, is subject to immediate removal from the show.

Selling Restrictions
No sale or distribution of merchandise (pictures, t-shirts, programs, calendars, comic books, patches, emblems, etc.) is allowed.  Exhibitors must honor all building concession rights.

Property Damage
Nothing shall be tacked, nailed, screwed or otherwise attached to drapes, columns, walls, floors or other parts of the building or furniture.

Show management provides 24-hour surveillance of the premises; however, all exhibitors shall be solely responsible for their own property. It is highly recommended that all  products not secured be removed when the display is not occupied. The Back to the Bricks Committee disclaims any and all responsibility for any casualty loss sustained by any exhibitor as a direct or proximate result of any act or commission by a third party.

All labor for the installation and removal of exhibitor displays is the responsibility of the exhibitor. Exhibitor understands that if they are not be able to perform the labor required for their display they will be solely responsible for payment of any labor required to install or remove display.

Demonstrations & Merchandise
No demonstrations or solicitations shall be permitted within the show area or any exhibitor’s assigned space. Distribution of any printed matter, samples or other articles are not allowed within the show area or the exhibitor’s assigned space. Exhibitors shall not have or operate any display that is the source of objectionable content or interfering with surrounding displays, including signs, lights, volume of noise, and costuming of exhibit personnel. Vehicles will not be allowed to start at any time except during move in and move out. No spinning of tires is allowed at any time. The event committee has the final authority.

Show Hours
Exhibitors will be allowed into the building one hour prior to opening each day. Always check with the event committee to be sure of scheduled opening time each day, as the hours differ on Friday and Saturday.

Move In
Exhibitors will receive information regarding the inbound schedule.  There is a single door for each arena, and they are large enough to accommodate a vehicle and trailer.   The move-in process may be slower if weather is a factor.  Exhibitors can unload outside and drive or push vehicles inside (or pull trailers inside). Trailers must be removed immediately after vehicles are removed.  There will be a secure off-site location provided to park all trailers.  Exhibitor vehicles may be pushed to exhibitor spaces or driven. There will be personnel in the arena who will guide exhibitors to their locations.

Move out will begin only after the advertised close of the show and after trophy presentation has been completed on Saturday. There is absolutely no teardown or vehicle removal until that time. Vehicles can be pushed or driven out of the arena only after the aisles are cleared of pedestrians and the aisle covering is removed. Trailers can be pulled into the arena one at a time in the order that they are lined up outside the arena. Again, there will be personnel in the arena who will guide exhibitors in the removal of their vehicles, and all exhibitors must follow their instructions.

All exhibitors must be cleared from the building facilities by Sunday at 11:00 am,  unless weather prohibits.

Sub-Contracting Space
Absolutely no sub-contracting of exhibit space is permitted.

Please keep all exhibitor  booth areas neat and free of rubbish. Rubbish should be put in containers or placed into the aisle before leaving each night.

Exhibitors assume all responsibilities for compliance with all pertinent ordinances, regulations and codes of duty, authorized local, state and federal governing bodies concerning fire, safety, health, together with the rules and regulations of the operators and owners of the property wherein the show is held.
