PROPERTY INSURANCE

If you already have property insurance, confirm that it will extend to your property during shipping and at the show. Many insurance policies only cover property at a listed location or within 1000 feet of that location. If you use an independent contractor for installation or dismantling, review the agreement carefully to determine what insurance may be available if damage occurs as a result of their negligence.

COMPREHENSIVE GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE
Confirm that you have adequate coverage to protect your interests from potential claims arising from the injury to a person other than an employee at your booth.

WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE
Exhibiting companies must have a Workers Compensation policy as required by law to insure your employees in the event of a work-related injury.

AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY INSURANCE
Confirm that an automobile liability policy is in place for any company owned vehicles used in connection with the show. Confirm that insurance is provided for any non-owned and/or hired vehicles used in connection with the show, including utility vehicles for loading and unloading.

REPORTING
In the event of damage or loss of property, or an accident or injury, it is your responsibility to contact your insurance broker or carrier immediately.
