Panleuk and the International Show
Since there is some concern about the reported cases of panleukopenia occurrences in the eastern parts of the country – we are going to extraordinary measures – not unusual for our cage service – but taking a tiny extra step – to disinfect judging areas on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There are NO reported cases of panleukopenia in the Western United States. So no worries, just part of the friendly customer service brought to you by your show committee management.
Typical fall weather for the Northwest... :-) Chance of showers each day with high temperatures in the lower 50s (10 degrees Celsius). At night mid 40s (7 degrees Celsius)
Shuttle service from hotels
There will be limited shuttle service from the Marriott branded hotels (Courtyard, Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn) to the show hall. Plan ahead....
Important update for International Travelers
On October 26, 2017, enhanced security procedures went into effect for all commercial flights to the United States. The new procedures include greater passenger screening, security protocols around aircraft and passenger areas, advanced technology and canine inspection, and heightened scrutiny of personal electronic devices. Passengers must now remove all electronic devices larger than a mobile phone from carry-on bags and place them in a separate bin with nothing else above or below the items. Travelers are encouraged to arrive at airports early and allot time for the enhanced security procedures.
Parking at the International
Parking at the International is $8 per day for Saturday and Sunday. If you would like to set up your benching on Friday, there is no parking fee that day.
