Exhibitor Apointed Contractors (EAC's)

In order for Exhibitor Appointed Contractors (EAC’s) to gain admittance into the Hall, Show Management requires each individual to wear a wrist band. 

Daily wristbands will be distributed for all EAC’s. A different color will be distributed for each day of Move-In, Show Days and Move-Out.  Wristbands must be worn on the wrist in order to be valid.  Wristbands are not transferable, and they cannot be re-used if they are removed from the person wearing them.  Wristbands will be available at the Security Command Post in room W101 – Level 1

Only the authorized individuals listed on the EAC Form will be able to pick up the wristband. We suggest that you designate a meeting point outside the exhibit hall to distribute them to your working personnel. 

No one will be allowed access to the exhibit hall without a wristband!  Plan your labor calls and meeting points accordingly.
