Proof of insurance for the show is mandatory.
As a standard requirement for all of our show exhibitors, it is necessary for you to carry general liability coverage from an insurance company in good standing with minimum policy limits of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $1,000,000 aggregate. Insurance Coverage is not optional. Having insurance will protect your company, employees, and volunteers, should a claim arise against you for something that occurred at your booth.
NAMM does not provide any type of insurance coverage for the property and/or personnel of exhibiting companies (see booth space contract). Exhibitors must maintain insurance that meets the requirements outlined below. Rainprotection Insurance is an authorized official insurance supplier for National Association of Music Merchants. In addition to being able to provide exhibitors with insurance, they are also collecting and verifying all insurance certificates, regardless of the insurer, are verified for compliance. If you have compliant coverage through your own provider, make sure to email a copy of the Certificate of Insurance to email@example.com by February 1, 2023.
