Due to the high volume of trips we expect at Orange County Convention Center for Design & Construction Week, we've instated a temporary staging area. When waiting for requests from OCCC, please wait in the staging area in this map. If you're not inside this staging area, you will not receive requests from OCCC.
You must display trade dress to access this staging lot. If you don't have trade dress, you can pick it up from your local Greenlight spot.
