Such CGL coverage must be maintained throughout the Insurance Term from an “A” rates carrier including the so-called “broad form endorsement.”.
- Additional Insured Coverage. GIE Media, d.b.a.

Such additional insured coverage must be maintained throughout the Insurance Term.

At GIE Media’s request, exhibitor shall furnish GIE Media with an original certificate of insurance evidencing that exhibitor has procured CGL coverage in accordance with the requirements set forth by Garden Center Conference & Expo (hereinafter referred to as “Rules”). GIE Media’s failure to request a certificate of insurance or amendatory endorsement required by these Rules shall not constitute a waiver of any obligations imposed upon exhibitor by these Rules.
- Deductibles and Self-Insured Retentions. In the event that GIE Media is required to make a claim under exhibitor’s CGL policy as an additional insured, it shall be the sole obligation of exhibitor, and not GIE Media, to satisfy any deductible or self-insured retention.
