Certificate of Insurance
All exhibitors must send an original certificate of insurance to the Massachusetts Dental Society by December 14, 2022. No exhibitor will be allowed to set up without the required certificate of insurance.
Please refer to our SAMPLE and these five steps to be sure your certificate of insurance displays the required information.
- Your company must be listed as the insured
- You must carry and maintain a minimum of $1 million insurance coverage that provides general liability coverage, coverage against damage to persons and property, and hazard insurance, insuring the exhibitor's property and its exhibit space, to fully protect it and the MDS and the additional insured (see below) against all risks in connection with its exhibit at the Yankee Dental Congress, or under the 2023 Rules & Regulations, or otherwise.
- Required dates must cover the dates of the expo, including set-up and breakdown: January 24- 29, 2023. Please send the certificate even if it expires by 12/31/22, then send a new certificate after this date.
- All insurance shall name as additional insured the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority and Freeman.
- The certificate holder must be listed as follows:
Massachusetts Dental Society
Two Willow Street

If you do not carry general liability insurance, you may purchase this in the form of event insurance. Information and order forms will also be included in the exhibitor service manual, going out in October.
