Insurance Needs

Our 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

PARKING

Trucks and trailers: You must provide your vehicle information to us at check-in to receive your exhibitor packet.  If you do NOT have a reserved parking spot, you are required to your trailer & oversized trucks in the Black & Veatch parking lot located just south of College Blvd. on Lamar. This lot can be used as of 6:00 pm Thursday.  Because this location is not available until 6:00 pm Thursday, you may park in the North lot, but only until the end of the day.  ALL TRUCKS AND TRAILERS MUST BE MOVED FROM THE NORTH LOT TO THE BLACK & VEATCH OVERFLOW PARKING BEFORE 9:00 am FRIDAY MORNING.  We apologize for this inconvenience.  This will be monitored and could affect your participation in the event next year.  

Cars: During show hours, the covered lot will be for exhibitors on a first come first serve basis. Once that lot is full, additional parking is available in one of our two remote parking lots. EXHIBITOR PARKING IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE NORTH LOT. THE NORTH LOT IS FOR SHOPPERS ONLY…PLEASE REMEMBER, YOUR SHOPPERS MUST BE ABLE TO FIND PARKING IN ORDER TO GET TO YOU!
