Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor (EAC) / Stand Builder Application/Contract

DEADLINE DATE: February 22, 2019

Once an exhibitor has notified ABACE Show Management of their intent to use an Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor (EAC) to install or dismantle their stands or to provide any services for their stands, the EAC must register with ABACE show management and provide a copy of their certificate of insurance (COI). EACs are responsible for ensuring that all sub-contractors who may be working for/with them have also registered individually and provided appropriate insurance documentation. Exhibitors/EACS must follow the following steps to notify ABACE management of all EACs who will be working on show site on their behalf:

  1. Exhibitor submits Notification of Intent to Use Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor (EAC)/Stand Builder form online no later than February 22, 2019.
  2. EAC completes Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor (EAC) Contract/Application and uploads a copy of their Certificate of Insurance (COI) online no later than February 22, 2019.
  3. Exhibitor/EAC submits stand drawings via online portal by February 22, 2019 deadline.

Please note:

  • Exhibitor Intent to Use: Exhibitors who fail to register their exhibitor-appointed stand builder/EAC by the 22 March 2019 deadline will be required to hire the services of the ABACE official service contractor, Freeman, for installation and dismantling of their stand.
  • EAC Contract/Application & COI: EACs who have not been registered by the exhibitor and/or EACs who have not completed the online contract/application and provided a copy of their insurance certificate may not be permitted to work on site at ABACE.
  • Stand Drawings: Stand drawings must be submitted for all raw space, including inline raw space, even if exhibitor will be using same stand as in previous years. Stand drawings will not be reviewed by show management until the Notification of Intent to Use Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor form and EAC Contract/Application have been completed online and the EAC’s certificate of insurance has been received.
  • Liability: It is the EAC’s responsibility to ensure that all their representatives abide by ABACE2019 Rules & Regulations. The EAC is responsible for the actions of their staff and all sub-contractors.
  • Badging: EACs who will be performing services in exhibitors’ stands during official show hours must wear exhibitor badges. Installation and dismantling individuals working other than official show hours are required to wear setup and teardown wristbands.
