Exhibitor Insurance

General Liability Insurance is a great program for:

  1. Smaller exhibitors who do not have insurance
  2. Larger exhibitors who do not want to use their own insurance
  3. Foreign exhibitors whose insurance will not pay a claim that is brought in a US court.

Exhibitor Event Cancellation Insurance is also available, which protects exhibitors against loss of incurred expenses (hotel rooms, airfare etc.)
