The insurance clause is #5 on the Terms and Conditions page of all booth space contracts. For easy reference, exhibitors are required to have:
- Comprehensive General Liability and All Risk Property Insurance
- Coverage must be from the start of move-in to the end of move-out
- Coverage of at least $1,000,000 for each separate occurrence
- Name Marketplace Events LLC and the venue as additional insured
- Provide a copy of the certificate of insurance to MPE upon request
Our shows have all been set up so exhibitors can apply using this link, at Risk-Strategies, Inc. (formerly was Buttine Insurance)
A few things to be aware of:
- Exhibitors will have to pick the show from a drop-down list that includes shows other than just those run by MPE.
- Marketplace Events is not selling this insurance and does not profit from it in any way. This is simply a resource for those exhibitors who don't already have the required insurance coverage per their contracts. They do not have to purchase this.
