Certificate of Insurance - Due February 23

A requirement of exhibiting at ISA Southern Chapter Annual Conference and Tradeshow is for ALL exhibitors to carry liability insurance throughout the Exhibition, with a limit of not less than $1,000,000 USD per occurrence. If a liability claim occurs against Exhibitor and ISA Southern Chapter, Exhibitor will be responsible for Exhibitor’s legal defense, and potentially for paying a claim brought against Exhibitor. It shall be the responsibility of Exhibitor to maintain proper liability insurance. Exhibitors that demonstrate their equipment, provide climbing opportunities, or stage their equipment in positions other than a transport mode, are required to provide proper insurance certificates to ISA Southern Chapter. Exhibitors must verify and present proper insurance when requested to do so. Certificates indicating adequate insurance coverage are to be provided to ISA by February 23, 2018. Even if Exhibitor hires an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC), Exhibitor still must supply its own Certificate of Liability Insurance. To ensure that the Certificate of Liability Insurance has the correct information required, under the “Under the Certificate Holder”, it needs to include: ISA Southern Chapter, 213 Apollo Drive, Mt. Airy, NC 27030.
