MEDICAL STATION AND SUPPLIES
We do not provide gloves. Good Guy Supply will have gloves available for purchase.
In an effort to reduce waste GGS has implemented a “Medical Station” at this show and many others in Canada. This method reduces waste by up to 50%! You will have ARTISTS Packs in your booth on the day of the show. These are generally good for 2/3 clients. After that you go to the Medical Station and request whatever you need.
Please be aware that the show staff will give you a few items at your request. We won’t run out so go back when you need more supplies. Please don’t try to horde supplies, they are always available.
Distilled water is accessible from the reservoir in the Artist Area. Bring your wash bottle over and fill up soap (premix) and distilled water. This initiative reduces plastic and saves 700 bottles from the landfill.
Sharps containers are provided. Please leave them in your booth at the end of the show.
