No individual wireless internet networks are to be installed as these interfere with the overall network causing inconvenience to all other exhibitors and participants.  

Do I need to take out any additional insurance?

The EAIE has Public Liability insurance, providing coverage for exhibitors (Third-Party Liability). This is included in the space booking fee. This coverage is limited to Third-Party Liability only, meaning bodily injuries and/or property damage caused by a registered exhibitor to a third party.   

Exhibitors are solely responsible for their own goods and properties, both private and/or their employer(s). The EAIE is not responsible and cannot be held liable for any loss, damage, or theft of your own belongings such as laptops, briefcases, purses etc. Personal items are not insured by any EAIE insurance. The EAIE highly recommends taking out fire and theft insurance, but it will not be checked and/or made compulsory. We advise taking out such insurance via your local insurance broker and/or checking coverage on your existing insurance(s).
