Electrical Safety and Regulation

  1. GES Electrical Jurisdiction (Requires labor and/or material) – All distribution of electrical wiring. All facility overhead and floor distribution of electrical wiring. All materials for floor distribution must be supplied by GES Electrical. All motor and equipment hook-ups requiring hard wiring connections. Installation and/or repair of electrical fixtures. Installation of electrical motors and electrical apparatus to be energized.

  2. Total combined wattage within booth space exceeding 20 amps will require electrical booth work labor. Labor is required to inspect and hook-up equipment pre-wired to plug into our systems. Exhibitors are not permitted to use power unless ordered. Exhibitors found using outlets without an order will be subject to the regular rate for outlets used. Sharing power or plugging into facility outlets is strictly prohibited.

  3. No outside/external additional power sources are allowed. All show power must be provided by the official Electrical Service Contractor unless special approval is provided.

  4. Electrical requirements for an exhibit at all convention facilities are for the safety of all Exhibitors and are based on national electrical codes and local ordinances. Too frequently, fires have been traceable to faulty wiring, sometimes because of carelessness and sometimes because of lack of understanding the risks involved. If an Exhibitor is not informed or does not understand basic safety standards for electrical wiring, an electrician should be consulted before shipment is made to the convention facilities.

  5. Serious risks involved which can be eliminated by understanding basic requirements of safe wiring inside your booth. For the safety of you and the public and to avoid code violations, remember these points:
    • All wiring must have a 3-wire grounded cord with a minimum of #14 gauge.
    • Spot or flood lighting is a hazard when lamps are too close to fabrics or other material which can be affected by heat.
    • Cube taps and multi-headed extension cords are not allowed.
    • The use of clip-on sign sockets, latex, or lamp cord wire in displays, or the use of 2-wire clamp on fixtures, is prohibited by order of fire prevention bureaus at trade shows and conventions.
    • Zip cords or two-wire cords are ungrounded and could result in safety hazards. Their use is forbidden in all convention facilities. Please leave all 2-wire cords at home.
    • Exhibitor is responsible for providing surge protectors for their goods. Daisy chaining of power strips is not allowed. GES is not responsible for loss or damage resulting from power surges. Furthermore, GES' liability for any and all loss or damage is limited to the value of the cost of electrical services provided or depreciated value of Goods, whichever is less.
    • You may pre-wire your equipment to match our receptacles. Any other modifications are not accepted. Here is a list of the plugs that match our equipment receptacles:
      • 5 amp 120 volt: Standard U-ground cord cap
      • 20 amp 208 volt 1phase or 3phase: Leviton 3521 or Hubbell 3521
      • 60 amp 208 volt 1phase or 3phase: Daniel Woodhead Plug Y560P
      • 100 amp 208 volt 1phase or 3phase: Litton-Veam Plug CIR01GRH

  6. In the interest of public safety, exhibits at all convention facilities may be inspected to determine if any violations exist. If they are found, qualified electricians are available to correct the problems. This work will be performed on a time and materials basis. If the Exhibitor does not wish to have the fault corrected, electrical service to the offending booth will not be connected. A fee of $300.00 may be assessed for the safety and rules violation.

  7. GES is not responsible for voltage fluctuation or power failure due to temporary conditions. Exhibitor is responsible for providing surge protectors for their Goods. GES is not responsible for loss or damage resulting from power surges. Furthermore, GES' liability for any and all loss or damage is limited to the value of the cost of electrical services provided or depreciated value of Goods, whichever is less. All electrical installations and connections to all electrical service should be made by a GES electrician. GES will not be responsible for any damage or loss to any equipment, component, computer hardware or software, and/or any damage or bodily injury to any person caused by installation, connection, or plugging in of any electrical outlet by persons other than a GES Electrician.

Reminder:

  • Check rating plates on your equipment to ensure that you will have the proper power to operate your display.
  • Order 24 hour power if required for refrigeration, computer systems, water pumps, heaters, etc.
