The above forms are just reminders regarding the union jurisdictions at the PA Convention Center, specifically regarding installation and dismantle labor. Above is a reference which shows what tools can and can not be used to erect your display. If you need to use the "prohibited" tools in any function, a union carpenter must be hired through General Exposition Services to assist in that capacity.

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