Exhibitor-Appointed Contractors (EAC) must conform to the EAC rules of the SEMA Show and complete an online application to be authorized to work at the Show by the October 17, 2014, deadline.
If you are using an Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor (EAC)—any third-party contractor performing services at the Show—ensure they complete all EAC requirements to avoid delay or extra costs.
Contractors subject to the EAC rules are any companies and/or individuals that provide services to SEMA Show exhibitors, including, but not limited to, an installation and dismantling company, exhibit builder, sound and lighting company, detailer or any person or company providing direct services other than the official contractors listed in the Exhibitor Manual.
EACs must conform to the EAC rules of the SEMA Show and complete an online application to be authorized to work at the Show by the October 17, 2014, deadline. They must also provide the SEMA with a certificate of insurance in order to be authorized to work onsite.
If you are an exhibitor and have a company that is performing one of the above-listed services, please be sure they register with the Show and send the appropriate certificate of insurance prior to the deadline to avoid any penalties.
