In addition to using our Facebook Event to your advantage, consider submitting an Exhibitor Spotlight.   We'll use your answers to create a blog that will appear on our show website, and be shared on Twitter and in the Facebook Event.  Click Here to fill out the Exhibitor Spotlight form.

Insurance Needs

Our 2019 shows have all been set up so exhibitors can apply using this link: https://www.buttine.com/eventExhibitor.html

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 doesn’t 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 occurrence
  • Name Marketplace Events LLC and the venue as additional insured
  • Provide a copy of certificate of insurance to MPE
