Mandatory for all exhibitors

Insurance must be provided before move-in begins. Exhibitors who fail to provide proof of insurance will be denied access to the event.

Exhibitors must provide proof of liability insurance coverage of at least $2,000,000 for each separate occurrence during the period commencing on the first move-in date and terminating on the last move-out date. The policy shall protect us and insure you against all claims, demands, actions, or proceedings for money, damages, costs, penalties, and losses and all liability which may be imposed by law for loss of life, personal injury, or damage to or loss of property arising from or in any way connected with your presence or operations at the Show. Please refer to the back of your contract or to our Conditions of Contract page for further details.

Providing proof of insurance can be achieved by having your insurance company or broker forward their own documentation to Brokers Trust Insurance Group Inc. For those who don’t have existing coverage or are finding their present coverage more expensive, we have made arrangements with Brokers Trust Insurance Group Inc.; forms are included in this package as well as on our website.
