    All exhibiting companies at the Newsday Travel Expo MUST obtain a certificate of insurance prior to setting up your exhibit to protect your company from any unforeseen accidents while at the show. This type of insurance costs minimal to obtain, typically around $100 depending upon coverage required.

    If you do not have an insurance carrier that can provide this type of coverage, we have a couple recommendations. Please see Page 6 of the Exhibitor Information Packet.
