Companies with an outside contractor requiring access to the exhibit hall to setup and dismantle booths must register their Exhibitor Appointed Contractors with SECO. See Exhibitors Service Kit for more information.
Visit the Exhibitor Lounge inside Hall A during official exhibit hall hours for a quiet meeting place. A valid exhibitor badge is required for admittance.
Exhibitor Appointed Contractors
EAC's are companies hired by an exhibitor to participate in the set-up and dismantle of an exhibition. These workers, outside of registered exhibitor staff, must officially register with SECO as an EAC in order to be granted access to the Exhibit Hall during set-up hours.
Complete an EAC Registration Form (see the Exhibitor Service Kit) and fax it to the SECO International,LLC office by January 21, 2012. All representatives of the EAC must be listed on this form in order to receive credentials to enter the Hall.
EAC's are to check-in at the entrance to Hall A of the Georgia World Congress Center and provide company identification to the on-duty security guard to receive a wristband granting them access to the Exhibit Hall. Badges will not be provided. Wristbands will only grant access to the Exhibit Hall during set-up and dismantle hours.
Once EAC's and privately owned vehicles (POV) have been granted access to the Exhibit Hall, they must adhere to the load-in and marshalling yard instructions provided in the SECO 2012 Exhibitor Service Kit.
