An Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) is an Independent/3rd party contractor, other than Freeman or OTC Official Contractors, that have been hired by an exhibiting company to perform work or services for their booth. EAC's can include but are not limited to, booth builders, supervisors or designers, independent display companies, photographers, or technicians.
For insurance and safety reasons, Exclusive Contractors designated in the service manual MUST be used for services such as:
Catering Electrical Rigging Plumbing Drayage/Forklift Operations Telecommunications
NEW THIS YEAR -
PAPERWORK REQUIREMENTS HAVE CHANGED: The submission of an Intent to Hire a Contractor form is no longer required of exhibitors. Moving forward Show Management is only requiring paperwork from EAC's, which will be sent directly to them and posted here, once it becomes available. If you have any additional questions regarding this change, please contact Katy Watson.
EAC Paperwork - COMING SOON
EAC BADGES: EAC's will no longer be receiving a separate badge link to register for badges. If an EAC needs access to the exhibit floor during show days (6 May - 9 May), exhibiting companies are responsible for registering the EAC personnel member under their allotted complimentary registrations. EAC’s will still receive a wristband each day for setup and tear down.
