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
