SIGNS, LITERATURE & SOUND
Exhibitors are allowed to distribute literature only in their own exhibit area. Persons not exhibiting are forbidden to distribute literature in the show. All are encouraged to use good taste in the use of signs. Comparison price signs are frowned upon, and in all cases, management reserves the right to remove all objectionable advertising materials. Management reserves the right to control all amplified sound in the show. Please keep your volumes low and respect your neighbor.
Remember to be properly licensed for the show by displaying a valid Dealer Sub-Agency license and being registered with local tax authorities. A certificate of insurance is required from all exhibitors and a copy was supplied with your contract. Food handlers must have necessary permits and permission of the Puyallup Fair Association. These rules and recommendations are to protect, not only the public, but the individual exhibitor and the industry which we represent. Thank you for your courtesy and cooperation.
SHOW CANCELLATION INSURANCE
The MHRV Show Association carries show cancellation insurance which protects the association and its exhibitors. In the event the show is canceled or curtailed due to weather, fire, earthquake or other events beyond the control of MHRV, exhibitors are likely to receive a portion of their space rent reimbursed. However, the insurance does not cover lost sales to our exhibitors due to lessened show attendance. If you wish to purchase show cancellation insurance that protects your business against lost sales, please contact your insurance carrier for desired coverage. If your insurance provider is unable to provide show cancellation insurance that protects you against lost sales, MHRV recommends Shoff Darby Insurance Agency https://www.shoffdarby.com/ 800-540-9361

The ADA considers sales offices are a place of public accommodation. MHRV requires exhibitors to make available an area where buyers with disabilities may obtain information (brochures, photos, etc.) and transact the purchase of a unit.
MHRV encourages exhibitors to voluntarily provide at least a minimal level of access to model homes and RVs to potential buyers with disabilities. For example, a exhibitor could provide physical access (via ramp or lift) to the primary level of one or several display models and make photographs of less accessible areas of the unit as well of other models available to the customer.
Auxiliary aids are available through the facility management. Customer inquiries for auxiliary aids should be directed to the show office.

A company in Austria has been circulating an order form to exhibitors in our MHRV Show. We want you to know that there is no connection between the MHRV Show Association and this "FAIR Guide". Many people assume that signing the form is simply a confirmation of accuracy of the information. However, a careful reading will disclose that signing and returning this form will obligate you for $981.00 per year for a minimum of three years and thereafter until terminated by three months advance notice. Any decision to participate in the FAIR Guide is yours, but the MHRV Show Association wants you to know that there is no connection between Fair Guide and our Show Association and MHRV does not endorse this company or its product.
