Notice of Intent to Hire an EAC

American Burn Association

This form must be completed by the Exhibitor only. An EAC cannot complete this form on behalf of the exhibitor.


Are You Hiring an EAC?

An Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) is a company other than the "general or official" service provider on the show that requires access to your booth during installation and dismantling. The EAC may only provide services in the facility that are not designated by the facility as "exclusive" to a designated provider, or by the show organizer in a contract as an exclusive service for the "general or official" service provider or other third party.

No EAC will be allowed to work in an exhibitor’s booth if this Notice of Intent to Use EAC and Policies and Procedures form, a valid Certificate of Insurance and the Agreement, and Rules and Regulations between GES and the EAC form is not completed by an authorized representative and received by GES by the deadline indicated above. This Notice of Intent to Use EAC and Policies and Procedures form must be completed for every third party (as well as any other third party ordering or requesting services from GES on behalf of exhibitor) at the above show. Multiple booths are not to be listed on one form.

Please add any EAC company information you plan to hire.
