The EACA is opposed to the practice of some show organizers who charge fees to EACs (non-officials) in exchange for the opportunity to service their clients. We agree with the official positions of our customer’s associations (eg. HCEA) when they state that the practice of charging a fee for the use of an EAC is not appropriate.
The EACA believes it is time to remove these obstacles to participation from the exhibitors and, in that regard, has authored its White Paper on EAC fees. The goal of this document is to not only spell out the negative impact that fees create for the trade show industry but to also offer positive solutions to make this practice obsolete.
