How long does it take for an industrial piercing to close?

I have to take out my industrial for a show. I've had it for a little over two years now and it's healed fine. I have a clear retainer being shipped to me, but in case it doesn't make it on time, I was wondering how long it would take for it to close up? I know a few hours shouldn't matter, but when I took out a regular cartilage piercing for a show before, part of it had closed up when I tried to put the jewelry back in later that night.
