Am wondering however if there is a central location to park my
rental car and easily take busses etc. to all the exhibits? Also
due to a bad back I usually use a small rolling suitcase to
transport all the "treasures" I find-is this allowed?
There are parking lots available at all the major shows. Parking lot
charges are usually $3-5 for all day. The shuttle busses stop at all
the major shows. There are actually 2 or 3 different shuttle bus
routes that all connect at the Convention Center so it’s possible to
change routes there.
Depending on your planned itinerary for the day, you may find it
convenient to park at the major show you plan to start with for the
day & then ride the bus to the others. Sometimes you may find that
it takes more than 1 day to do a show.
