INSURANCE

Our shows have all been set up so exhibitors can apply using this link:


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.

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 occurence
  • Name Marketplace Events LLC and the venue as additional insured
  • Provide a copy of the certificate of insurance to MPE
