You may display any promotional items or materials on your table, including those of subsidiary or parent companies. Please note: you may NOT serve food and/or beverage from your booths. You may give out sample bottles of rum or chocolates, but no food or drink service.

The instructions below were given to us directly from the Hilton:
An itemized commercial invoice will be required showing the individual items with the unit and extended cost. Once this is received, we can advise if a Customs Broker will be required.
Please note that values of $0.01 and $1.00 are not accepted.
For items leaving the Island, after the event, please note that a Temporary Import License is required. Draft copy included on page #2. (Please request this form from Winston Ifill directly - email information below). If this form is not completed and submitted for clearance of shipment, full duties and taxes may be charged.
It is recommended that you choose a Courier with which your company has an account. This speeds up the process for clearing at Customs, as the courier will pay any duties for your company and apply the charge to your account. This allows packages to be cleared faster and released for delivery.
This also helps when shipping items back to your company as you are responsible for the packaging of the items for shipment and for the preparation of the airway bills. Please DO NOT forget to complete your Commercial Invoice for each shipment and itemized cost for each unit or item. Sender name should be the persons sending the shipment and NOT HILTON BARBADOS.
If your items will have to be cleared by a Customs Broker, we recommend Ron’s Customs Brokers, contact Mr. Ronnie Goodridge at 1 246 424 9791 cell# 1 246 231 2603 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As storage is very limited at the Hilton Barbados, all packages should be shipped to arrive a maximum of ten (10) working days before your event (excluding Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays).
If shipping an excess of five (5) boxes or packages, permission would have to be given in advance by your Hotel contact (Sales Manager or Group Services Manager) for special storage.
For further information please feel free to contact our Purchasing Manager Mr. Winston Ifill at 1 246 426 0200 ext: 5683 or via email at Winston.Ifill@hilton.com.
