PRE-PAY DISCOUNT
ASIS 2012
As stated in our Payment Policy, all invoices must be paid in advance or at the show - cash, company check, wire transfer and/or credit card.
All companies must provide a credit card authorization form with orders. Absolutely no credits will be issued after show closing.
Arata Expositions, Inc. is pleased to announce our Material Handling Pre-Pay Discount for ASIS 2012 Exhibitors.
In order to take advantage of this 10% discount, you must submit your check payment (no credit cards) no later than August 17, 2012.
To calculate your charges, estimate the weight of the items you will be shipping to the show. If you would like to use the ASIS 2011 shipment
weight, please contact us and we will be happy to look that up for you. The discount will apply to actual shipment weights, up to the estimated prepaid amount you have determined without further discount. If you prepay less than the actual shipment weight (or the shipment is not
classified correctly), standard charges will be applied for the remaining weight or surcharges. If your prepayment is more than the actual
shipment, we will apply the remaining balance to any other services you have ordered with Arata Expositions, Inc, first and any credit balance
will be refunded.
This offer is available to exhibiting companies only. Third party contractors, including Exhibitor Appointed Contractors may not participate.

TIPS FOR MATERIAL HANDLING
ASIS 2012
HELPFUL HINTS
1.
Ship prepaid – collect shipments will not be accepted at either the warehouse or show site.
2.
If you ship by way of your own truck or car, it is important to have a delivery ticket prepared indicating the piece count and
weight. You are invoiced for material handling based on weight. If no information is available, the weight is estimated by the
unloading crew.
3.
Consolidate as many pieces as possible into one shipment to avoid being billed for several minimum shipments. To reduce
material handling costs (Drayage), ship all of your exhibit materials in ONE shipment. Remember, there is a 200
pound minimum charge per shipment. See the example below.
4.
Please be sure to obtain and complete an AEI Bill of Lading. Bills of Lading will be made available at the AEI service center
on the final show day. Please be sure to return your completed Bill of Lading and any additional outbound information
before you leave the show floor.
5.
Should you choose to use a carrier other than the official show carrier, please be certain to contact them with any
necessary pick-up information. AEI is not responsible for contacting outside carriers for pick-ups.
6.
BE SURE YOUR MATERIALS ARE INSURED from the time they leave your firm until they are returned after the
show. It is suggested that exhibitors arrange all risk coverage. This can be done by adding exposition floaters to
existing policies. Contact your insurance representative.
BE SURE YOUR LIABILITY AND PROPERTY
INSURANCE IS IN EFFECT DURING TRANSIT, STORAGE AND WHILE AT CONVENTION SITE.

LIMITS OF LIABILITY
(page 1 of 2)
1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS:
It is understood that acceptance of the following terms and conditions will be
construed when any of the following conditions are met:
• The Exhibit Shipping Information & Drayage Rate Schedule is signed; or
• Exhibitors materials are delivered to either the Arata Expositions, Inc. (hereafter referred to as “AEI”)
warehouse or show site for which AEI is the Official General Contractor for the event; or
• When an order for any rental equipment and/or labor is placed by the exhibitor with AEI
2. AEI’S RESPONSIBLITIES: The responsibility of AEI with respect to the goods stored hereunder shall be limited to
the exercise of ordinary care and diligence by its officers and employees in receiving, handling, keeping and delivering
the same. For purposes of this contract, AEI means their employees, officers, directors, agents, assigns, affiliated
companies, and related entities including, but not limited to, any subcontractors AEI may appoint. AEI shall not be
liable for loss or damage by natural elements, fire, heat, frost, damp, dust, moths, rust, leakage, deterioration, acts of
God, vandalism, theft, civil disturbance, power failure, acts of terrorism or war, labor disputes, lockouts or work
stoppages of any kind nor for other causes beyond AEI’s reasonable control.
3. AEI LIABILITY:
It is understood that AEI and its subcontractors are not insurers. The exhibitor is responsible for
obtaining the proper insurance to cover their property. AEI does not provide for full liability should loss or damage
occur. AEI’s liability shall be limited to the physical loss or damage to the specific article, which is lost or damaged. In
any case, the liability of AEI is limited to $.30 per pound per article, with a maximum of $50.00 per item, and a
maximum of $1,000 per shipment, whichever is less, as agreed upon damages and exclusive remedy. Provisions of
this paragraph shall apply if loss or damage, regardless of cause or origin, results directly or indirectly to property
through performance or nonperformance of obligations imposed by the offering of services to Exhibitors, or from
negligence, active or otherwise, by AEI, its subcontractors or employees. This applies while these goods are in AEI’s
warehouse, in vehicles for delivery or at show site. AEI shall not be liable to any extent whatsoever for any actual,
potential or assumed loss of profits or revenues, or for any collateral costs, which may result from any loss or damage
to an exhibitor’s material which make it impossible or impractical to exhibit same.
4. EXHIBITORS ARE URGED TO CARRY ALL-RISK INSURANCE COVERING YOUR MATERIALS
AGAINST DAMAGE, LOSS AND ALL OTHER HAZARDS FROM THE TIME SHIPMENTS ARE MADE
PRIOR TO THE SHOW UNTIL SHIPMENTS ARE RECEIVED BACK AFTER THE SHOW. THIS CAN
GENERALLY BE DONE BY ADDING “EXPOSITION FLOATERS” TO EXISTING INSURANCE
POLICIES. IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT AEI IS NOT AN INSURER. THAT INSURANCE, IF ANY, SHALL
BE OBTAINED BY THE EXHIBITOR AND THE AMOUNTS PAYABLE BY AEI HEREUNDER ARE
BASED ON THE VALUE OF THE MATERIAL HANDLING SERVICES AND THE SCOPE OF AEI
LIABILITY AS SET FORTH ABOVE.
5. PACKAGING: AEI shall not be responsible for damage to uncrated material, material improperly packed, concealed
damage, pad wrapped or shrink-wrapped materials, glass breakage, or carpet in bags or poly. Additionally, AEI shall
not be responsible for crates and packaging that are unsuitable for handling, in poor condition, or have prior damage.
Crates and packaging should be designed to adequately protect contents for handling by forklifts and similar means.
6. INSURANCE CLAIMS: The exhibitor must report the damage or loss at the AEI service desk at show site and
complete our paperwork documenting the incident. Failure to complete the proper paperwork at show site will result in
the claim being waived. The exhibitor must submit any written claim for loss or damage within (30) days of the close of
the show on which the loss or damage occurred or the claim shall be considered waived. No suit or action shall be
brought against AEI more than one year after the cause of action accrues.

(page 2 of 2)
7. INBOUND SHIPMENTS: After the exhibit materials are placed in the booth, AEI will not be responsible for
condition, count or content. Please remember that there may be a lapse of time between the delivery of shipments to
the booth and the arrival of the exhibitor or exhibitor’s representative. AEI will not be responsible or liable for any loss,
damage, theft, or disappearance of exhibitor’s materials after same have been delivered to the exhibitor’s booth at
show site. We suggest exhibitors arrange for security services for their booth.
8. EQUIPMENT REQUIRING SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: Fourteen days advance notice must be provided to AEI by
the exhibitor in order to obtain special devices to properly load, place or reload equipment requiring such care. AEI will
not be liable for any damage incurred during the handling of equipment requiring special devices if this advance notice
has not been received by AEI.
9. EMPTY CONTAINER LABELS:
The exhibitor is responsible for affixing EMPTY labels (available at the AEI
service desk) to containers to be stored during the show. It is understood that these labels are used for empty storage
only and AEI assumes no responsibility or liability for loss or damage to contents while containers are in storage or for
mislabeled containers.
10. CLASSIFYING SHIPMENTS: AEI cannot be responsible for classifying shipments. After shipments are tendered
to a carrier for shipment, AEI cannot be responsible for delivery time or damage or loss to property.
11. OUTBOUND SHIPMENTS: All shipments received at the close of the show are subject to a final count. We will
count and ship pieces as we find the shipment when we remove them from the booth to load out. All Material Handling
Agreements submitted to AEI by the exhibitor will be checked at the time of pick up from the booth. Corrections will be
made where any discrepancies exist between the quantities of pieces listed by the exhibitor and the actual count of
such items in the booth at the time of pick up. AEI is not responsible for shipments left in booths by exhibitors. We
suggest exhibitors arrange for security services for their booth. PLEASE NOTE: Where an exhibitor indicates choice
of carrier for pickup, it is the exhibitor’s responsibility to arrange with such carrier for said pickup service. In order to
expedite removal of freight from the show site, AEI shall have the authority to change designated carriers, if such
carriers do not pick up on time or refuse to accept shipments. Exhibits not removed from the show on removal day
and on which we have no shipping information will be returned to our warehouse at an additional charge to await
disposition. AEI assumes no liability as a result of such rerouting or handling.
12. PAYMENT OF SERVICES: The exhibitor agrees, in the event of a dispute with AEI or its subcontractors relative to
any loss or damage to any of the exhibitor’s freight or equipment, that the exhibitor will not withhold payment in any
amount due to AEI for freight handling services or any other services provided by AEI or its subcontractors as an offset
against the amount of the alleged loss or damage. Instead, the exhibitor agrees to pay AEI prior to the close of the
show for all such charges and further agrees that any claim the exhibitor may have against AEI or its subcontractors
shall be pursued independently by the exhibitor as a complete, separate transaction to be resolved on its own merits.
13. JURISDICTION: This agreement shall be deemed to have been made in the State of Maryland, and that any and all
performance thereunder, or breach thereof, shall be interpreted, governed and construed pursuant to the laws of the
State of Maryland, and the parties to this agreement consent that the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland
shall be the sole forum where any cause of action arising under, or in any way related to, this agreement may be
instituted.
14. MISCELLANEOUS:
Exhibitor, as a material part of the consideration to AEI for material handling services,
waives and releases all claims against AEI, its employees, agents, officers and directors, with respect to all
matters for which AEI has disclaimed liability, pursuant to the provisions of this contract. The exhibitor
acknowledges that he or she has read this agreement, understands it and agrees to be bound by its terms, and
further agrees that it is the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties.
The invalidity or
enforceability of any provision hereof shall not affect, modify, or impair the validity and enforceability of all other
provisions herein.

CART LOAD SERVICES
Cart Load Service is a feature offered for Privately Operated Vehicles (“POVs”) only. POVs are limited to small passenger
vehicles such as cars, small mini vans or SUV’s. If you arrive with a truck, van, or trailer filled with exhibit material you will not
qualify for this service and will be required to utilize Arata Expositions material handling services.
Arata Expositions, Inc. is pleased to make available for hire, one (1) laborer with one (1) pushcart, for one (1) trip. Charges for
these services are $170.00 round trip.
This service is for those who have small hand carry items all of which must fit on a 3’ x 4’ push cart, in one trip only.
A cart load is eight (8) pieces or less, weighing less than 200 lbs. total. There is one cart load allowed per booth. Freight that
is too large or heavy will be charged material handling rates.
Your vehicle must load and unload from the dock area. Arata personnel will direct vehicles. The loading dock is for loading
and unloading only. No parking will be allowed on the loading dock. You must have two people per vehicle so that once the
POV is unloaded, it can be moved immediately from the dock area.
No Arata equipment is allowed to be used by exhibitors.
Exhibitors are required to carry all risk floater insurance covering their products and exhibit materials against damage, loss and
other hazards. The coverage should start when the product and exhibit materials leave your place of business and end upon
the return to your facility after the show. This can be done by adding “riders” to your existing policies.

SPECIAL HANDLING
ASIS 2012
Special handling applies to shipments that are loaded by cubic space and/or packed in such a manner as to require additional
labor/handling, such as ground unloading/loading, constricted space unloading/loading, designated piece unloading/loading,
carpet/padding only shipments or stacked shipments. Also included are multiple shipments, alternate delivery locations, mixed
loads, and shipments without individual bills of lading. Shipments loaded in this manner require additional time, labor, or
equipment to unload, sort and deliver. All Federal Express, Airborne Express, DHL and UPS shipments require special
handling.
SPECIAL HANDLING DEFINITIONS
Ground Unloading/Loading:
Vehicles that are not dock height, preventing the use of loading docks, such as personal owned vehicles, U-hauls, vans, flat
bed trailers, double drop trailers, company vehicles with trailers that are not dock level, etc.
Stacked Shipments:
Shipments loaded in such a manner requiring multiple items to be removed to ground level for delivery to booth. Stacked or
“cubed out” shipments, loose items placed on top of crates and/or pallets constitute special handling.
Constricted Space Unloading/Loading:
Trailer loaded “high and tight” shipments that are not easily accessible. Freight that is loaded to full capacity of trailer – top to
bottom, side to side. One example of this is freight that is loaded down one side of a trailer that must be by passed to reach the
targeted freight.
Designated Piece Unloading/Loading:
Drivers that require the loading crew to bring multiple pieces of freight to the rear of the trailer to select the next piece, having to
remove freight from the trailer then reload to fit or the trailer must be loaded in a sequence to ensure all items fit.
Mixed Loads:
Shipments of mixed crated and uncrated goods, where the percentage of uncrated is minimal and does not warrant the full
uncrated rate for the shipment, but does require special handling.
Crated vs. Uncrated:
Crated shipments are those that are packed in any type of shipping container that can be unloaded at the dock with no additional handling required. Such containers include crates, fiber cases, cartons, and properly packed skids. An uncrated shipment
is material that is shipped loose or pad-wrapped, and/or unskidded without proper lifting bars and hooks.
Multiple Shipments:
Shipments on a carrier that are intermingled, or delivered in such a manner that additional labor is needed to sort through and
separate the various shipments on a truck for delivery to a booth.
Alternate Delivery Location:
Shipments that are delivered by a carrier that requires all or partial delivery of the shipment to a different level in the same
building, or to other rooms in the same facility.
Carpet Only Shipments:
Shipments that consist of carpet and/or carpet padding only require special handling because of additional labor and or equipment to unload.
Improper Paperwork / No Documentation:
Shipments that arrive from a small package carrier (including among others, Federal Express, Airborne Express, DHL, and
UPS) without an individual Bill of Lading, requiring additional time, labor and equipment to process. Shipments received without
paperwork will be delivered without guarantee of piece count or condition. Shipments that arrive without machine printed documentation showing the weight of the shipment.
Improper Weight:
Shipments that come in and are re-weighed showing the documentation was incorrect with a lower weight than the actual
weight. These shipments get charged special handling plus a weight ticket charge.
