*Exhibitor Appointed Contractor/Exhibitor Designated Contractor - If you are hiring an independent contractor to work on your booth during installation and dismantling, the insurance requirements described above also apply to these independent contractors.

  4. Upload the Certificate of Insurance

Due to security requirements and access to the exposition hall, this deadline will not be extended.

Within five (5) calendar days of a suspension, cancellation or non-renewal of coverage, Exhibitor shall provide a replacement Certificate of Insurance to AAFP. Failure to provide and to maintain the required insurance shall constitute a material breach of the Agreement.

It is agreed that Exhibitor’s insurance shall be deemed primary and non-contributory with respect to any insurance carried by the American Academy of Family Physicians, Freeman Expositions, Inc., or the the City of San Antonio for liability arising in the performance of the Agreement.
