  15. EAC must coordinate all of its activities with Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES).
  16. The Exhibitor or its EAC should order services required from GES and the Exhibit Hall in advance. Ordering labor or services onsite (which contractors may not be prepared to provide immediately) may delay the set-up of your booth or force your set-up into overtime.
  17. The Exhibitor or its EAC should take steps to protect the Exhibitor and the EAC’s product in the booth by arranging for booth security and/or cages. GES is not responsible for items left unattended on the show floor.
  18. EAC agrees GES is not responsible for any items stored in empty containers. Do not store empty cartons inside of empty crates. Cartons are returned from storage before crates so Exhibitors may begin packing their product.

  20. EAC/Exhibitor agrees that all outbound freight bills should be turned into the service desk on a timely basis.
