Chicago Build

Insurance Policy

As an exhibitor of Chicago Build, you are required to submit your Certificate of Insurance (COI) no later than August 31 2023. Please see below for the full conditions as stipulated in your booking contract. 

Insurance Terms


There are a number of exhibitors whose show insurance is being organized by Oliver Kinross Ltd. as stipulated at the time of booking. Please discard this page and any reminders you may see in the e-zone if this applies to you. 

If you would like Oliver Kinross Ltd. to organize your policy on your behalf, please contact your account manager.


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 $94.

The below link is an example of how to purchase your policy through Rainprotection (please note this link was valid for the October 2022 show):


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. Policy shall include Damage to Premises Rented To You with a limit of $1,000,000 per occurrence. Insurance Coverage is not optional.

This insurance must be in force during the lease dates of the event, October 9-12, 2023, naming Oliver Kinross Ltd. (141 Lanza Avenue, Building 3-C, Garfield, New Jersey 07026) as the certificate holder. The following must be named as additional insured: Oliver Kinross Ltd. and their agents, trustees, officers, board members and employees and SMG, Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority, its Facilities Agents, Trustee, Officers, Board Members and Employees, and Chicago Park District, its Agents, Officers, Board Members and Employees.


Chicago Build has requested that Rainprotection serve as their insurance management company. In addition to being able to provide exhibitors with insurance, we are also collecting and verifying that all insurance certificates, regardless of the insurer, are verified for compliance. Benefits of using this program:

• No Deductible – unlike your corporate policy, Rainprotection’s policy has no deductible. Should there be a claim, you will have no out of pocket costs and your future rates will not go up since you would not need to submit a claim on your policy.

• No Hassles – you will not need to go back and forth with your broker adding additional insureds and making your insurance compliant with show requirements

• Coverage for exhibitors who do not have an existing policy

• Coverage for international exhibitors whose insurance will not cover them in the U.S.A.

• Easy and Inexpensive to purchase instantly online

• Already pre-filled with all the proper show information.

• Submitted to show management for you - Once purchased, they automatically receive a copy
