Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) Registration
How to Obtain EAC Badges
If you hire any vendors other than our preferred vendors, you must register each company in advance as an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC). Examples include booth installation/dismantle labor, florists, photographers, audio visual equipment providers, etc.
An EAC will ONLY be granted access to the Exhibit Hall if:
- Show Management has approved a Certificate of Insurance (COI). Note: We will only accept hard copy COIs onsite at Exhibitor Registration moving forward.
- EACs are licensed to work in the Javits Center and display their current ESCA badge onsite at all times.
It is the Exhibitor’s sole responsibility to ensure any hired EACs are aware of and comply with all requirements and guidelines on this page and all subsequent pages referenced here.
