Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC)

An Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) is any individual or companies hired to set-up and dismantle or provide service to your booth who is not an employee of your company. EAC’s include but are not limited to Installation and Dismantle Contractors, Booth Designers and Builders, Non-­Official Florists, Furniture Suppliers, Piano Movers and Laborers.

Exhibitors are required to submit a completed EAC form for each Contractor and Sub-­Contractor (this includes but is not limited to third-­party Contractors) to NAMM no later than May 2, 2022. Any exhibitors using Freeman for their booth build does not need to fill out the EAC form, as Freeman is the official general contractor for the NAMM Show.

Exhibitors are responsible for ensuring that their EAC’s have the proper insurance and can provide this on-­site if necessary. View Exhibitor and/or Exhibitor Appointed Contractor Insurance Requirements.

Please complete the EAC Application, for each exhibitor that you plan on supporting.
