Our membership is comprised of service companies, equipment manufacturers and suppliers of products and services to operating service companies.

As a standard requirement for all 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 $2,000,000 aggregate. Insurance Coverage is not optional. This insurance must be in force during the lease dates of the event, November 13-15, 2022, naming National Automatic Merchandising Association (1777 North Kent Street, Suite 1010, Arlington, VA 22209) as the certificate holder. The following must be named as additional insured: National Automatic Merchandising Association, GES, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, & Tradeshow Logic.

If you do not have insurance, or you would rather not use your own insurance, (similar to when you rent a car – so that claims would not be filed against your policy), we have set up a program with Rainprotection Insurance through which, you can purchase compliant insurance instantly online for only $84.
