As you prepare your exhibit space, please review the forms and important information in the documents below:

An Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) is an independent/third-party contractor, other than Freeman or OTC Official Contractors, who have been hired by an exhibiting company to perform work or services for their booth. EACs can include, but are not limited to, booth builders, supervisors or designers, independent display companies, photographers, or technicians.

For insurance and safety reasons, Exclusive Contractors designated in the service manual MUST be used for services such as:

  • Catering
  • Electrical
  • Rigging
  • Plumbing
  • Drayage/Forklift Operations
  • Telecommunications


PAPERWORK REQUIREMENTS HAVE CHANGED: The submission of an "Intent to Hire a Contractor" form is no longer required of exhibitors. Moving forward, Show Management is only requiring paperwork from EACs, which consists of an EAC agreement and a Certificate of Insurance valid from the start of install until the end of move-out. The EAC agreement and other requirements will be sent directly to EACs and is posted below.

EAC BADGES: EACs will no longer receive a separate badge link to register for badges. If an EAC needs access to the exhibit floor during show days 5-7 FEBRUARY, exhibiting companies are responsible for registering the EAC personnel member under their allotted complimentary registrations. EACs will still receive a wristband each day for setup and tear down.

EAC FEE: A $200 fee per exhibiting company that an EAC completes services for is now required and MUST be paid by the EAC prior to install. Once your EAC agreement is submitted, an invoice will be sent to the EAC primary contact disclosed on the agreement. Failure to pay the EAC fee will result in on-site delays.


If you have any additional questions regarding these changes, please contact Katy Watson.

Order a Lead Retrieval Unit to capture contact information for potential business connections you make at the 2019 Hydraulic Fracturing and Technology conference.
