Notice of Intent to Hire an EAC


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), sometimes interchangeably referred to as an independent contractor, is a company other than the general or official service provider for the show that requires access to your booth during installation and dismantling. The EAC may only provide services in the facility not designated by the facility or HAI Show Management as "exclusive" to a designated provider.

Exhibiting companies MUST notify HAI Show Management AND GES of the exhibitor’s intent to use an EAC by January 12, 2024. To notify HAI, please click here (LINK TBD). Each EAC must submit valid evidence of insurance coverage (as outlined below) to insurance@rotor.org by January 12, 2024.

Exhibitors are responsible for ensuring that each EAC they intend to use in conjunction with the show maintains sufficient coverage and provides necessary documentation to HAI Show Management and GES. No EAC will be allowed to access the show floor or work in an exhibitor's booth unless both HAI Show Management and GES have received, and approved, the proper paperwork and proof of insurance.

Each EAC must have all licenses required under federal, state, and local laws or regulations, as well as any permits required by the convention facility, prior to accessing the show floor or commencing work.

Each EAC shall maintain all necessary insurance coverages for EACs and any other individual or entity, including subcontractors, the EAC retains for activities related to HAI HELI-EXPO, for the entire duration of HAI HELI-EXPO (license period: [DATE TBD] through [DATE TBD] local time.)

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, copies of the necessary endorsements, and the Agreement, and Rules and Regulations between GES and the EAC form is not completed by an authorized representative of the exhibiting company 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.
