The Sales department serves as a Meeting Planner’s first contact with the Convention Center.
Most likely, we are familiar faces by now. In fact, we’re probably the first contact you made here, as
we’ve worked with you since the beginning booking your event, helping you get the right space for
your event and administering your contract (License Agreement).

In case you are reading this handbook before all of the contracting details have been wrapped-up,
we offer you a few reminders of things sometimes overlooked.

Your contract (License Agreement) is our legal commitment to each other. Until it is signed by you
and executed by us, the deal is not done. If you are now planning the details of your event and
don’t yet have an executed contract, call your Sales contact and talk about what remains to be
accomplished.

Let us say your contract has been executed and you are now working with your Event Manager.
You’ve since decided to change the way you’re using space – perhaps the ballroom you originally
planned for meetings is now additional exhibit space or a move-in day has become an event day
(or vice versa). That kind of change in usage is normal, but affects your contract. So what should
you do? Let your Event Manager know when you have made changes that affect your contract.
They will prepare an Addendum for your signature and see that it is executed.

When it is time to think about future dates here at the Convention Center, call us. There is nothing
we would enjoy more than bringing you back again. If you are interested in exploring dates, please
call us directly.

EVENT MANAGER
The Director of Event Services will assign an Event Manager to your event within (18) months of
your event. The Event Manager is your principal source of information during the planning process
and when you arrive on-site. He or she will take full responsibility for the smooth functioning of
event activities in our facility. Your Event Manager will guide you through your preliminary plans,
your show and any Convention Center billing.

Before selling any exhibit space, please submit a preliminary floor plan, with the completed
Application for Fire Permit and the fee, to your Event Manager. They will submit the plans for
review to the Seattle Fire Marshal. The Event Manager will review plans for facility compliance and
will act as the liaison with the Seattle Fire Marshal for safety compliance. Please remember that all
approvals are required before selling any exhibitor booth spaces. We should receive any floor
plans, application and fee at least 60 days before your event. A copy of your Exhibitor Prospectus
and Decorator Service Kit should also be provided to your Event Manager before distribution to
exhibitors. We want to ensure that all WSCTC information is accurate and clear to your exhibitors
and decorator.

60 days before your event you should provide your Event Manager with your meeting event orders
(“Resume”, “Staging Guidelines”, etc) showing required room sets and schedule. Please submit
your Certificate of Insurance 60 days before your event. You must provide proof of coverage and
name WSCTC as additional insured for the entire time you are in the building. Please have your
show name and license agreement number on the certificate

45 days before your event, your Event Manager will schedule facility staffing. Any event related
charges will be submitted to you on a Billing Worksheet. Please acknowledge receipt of the Billing
Worksheet by signing and returning to your Event Manager at least 30 days before your event.

We will invoice all actual Convention Center charges incurred for staffing, services and equipment
at the close of your event (unless otherwise specified in your License Agreement).

                                          Sales & Event Services
                                              Page 2 of 104
The Convention Center reserves the right to set the final staffing levels and hours of operation
required for the safe execution of the Event. The event organizer shall only use Convention Center
Transportation Attendants for all TMP functions. Seattle Police Officers, if required for street traffic
control, will be at the event organizer’s expense.

Police / Emergency Medical Technician Staffing

When required, the Convention Center will arrange the scheduling of Seattle Police Department
(SPD) officers and/or Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) personnel during Event hours. The
Convention Center reserves the right to set the final, minimum staffing levels and hours of staffing
required by the Event. The Convention Center’s exclusive contractor for EMT services shall be the
provider of EMT services during the Event.

The following services are NOT provided by the Convention Center:

Security – Services, such as Exhibit Floor Security, Overnight Security, and Bag Inspection must be
contracted for separately at the event organizer’s sole expense. Contractors hired for these
services may NOT provide any event access control. The event organizer shall review any
additional security requirements with the Convention Center prior to engaging an outside contractor
for said services. Other than “sworn officers” with legal jurisdiction (i.e. Seattle Police Officers,
King County Sheriffs Officers, WA State Patrol Officers) no armed guards shall be hired for any
security services.

ROOM SETUP & CLEANING

You are responsible, through your official service contractor, to arrange cleaning of tradeshow
aisles, carpeted registration areas, exhibit booths, and removal of trash, crates, pallets and packing
material. We will maintain all common lobbies and meeting rooms.

We will provide clean event space and request that the space be returned in the same condition.
We expect the “general contractor/decorator” to handle all trash within your show and to
vacuum/clean up the tradeshow common aisles and registration areas whether the tradeshow is on
Levels 4 or 6. Please make sure their staff is equipped with their own vacuums, push brooms and
other cleaning materials as required. For example:

On Level 4 your decorator is responsible to:

       Maintain carpeted areas, booth areas, exhibition service areas, registration counters and
       registration wastebaskets and trash removal.
       Maintain carpeted or uncarpeted tradeshow aisles.

On Level 6 your decorator is responsible to:

   •   Maintain carpeted or uncarpeted tradeshow aisles.
   •   Maintain registration waste baskets and trash removal.
   •   We will maintain carpeted areas around the registration counters in the East and West
       Lobbies.

The Convention Center housekeeping staff works hard to maintain the facility's appearance and
condition for all our guests. Set-up Attendants will provide all meeting room sets, trash removal,
housekeeping services, room conversions, room refreshes, general maintenance and recycling
operations (cans, glass, paper).

                                               Page 3 of 104
Please review your requirements in advance with your Event Manager so any associated costs can
be included in your Billing Worksheet. We will keep the restrooms, lobbies, corridors, and other
public areas clean and tidy during all of your event hours. We will also clean your meeting rooms
during the lunch break and provide complimentary overnight refreshes.

ROOM SETS AND CHANGEOVERS
We provide your initial room set-up and overnight conversions at no charge. Your Event Manager
will work with you on any daytime set conversions and associated costs.

WATER STATIONS
We will provide complimentary bottled water service at schoolroom sets, conference sets and head
tables on Level 6 only. We will provide water coolers in hallways and lobbies at no charge. Our
catering department will provide individual water service, with pitchers and glasses for an additional
fee.

HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING AND LIGHTING DURING MOVE-IN/OUT
Following is a summary of the Washington State Convention & Trade Center energy conservation
procedures. See the next page for fees associated with additional Heating, Cooling, and Lighting
costs.

Meeting Rooms and Lobbies – Heating, Cooling, and Lighting
All meeting rooms located on Levels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, and lobbies on Levels 4 and 6 are provided
with an appropriate level of lighting and heating or cooling during times of use. Clients are
requested to switch off lights when the meeting rooms are not occupied.

Exhibit Halls and Ballrooms – Heating and Cooling
No conditioned air is provided in Exhibit Halls 4ABCDEF or Ballrooms 6ABCDEF during event
move-in/move-out. As necessary, adjustments are made in times of extreme temperatures (below
30 degrees and above 90 degrees Fahrenheit).

Exhibit Halls and Ballrooms – Lighting
During move-in/move-out, lighting in Exhibit Halls 4ABCDEF and Ballrooms 6ABCDEF is set to a
safe and adequate level that is lower than typical event-level lighting.

Please note: Clients may request additional heating/cooling and lighting services during move-
in/move-out periods and non-event hours. These services are available, upon request, for an
additional fee.

                                 Catering Information and Policies

Exclusive Caterer
The Washington State Convention Trade Center is committed to providing the highest quality food
and beverage services for our guests. All food and beverage is to be arranged through our
Catering Department. No outside food or beverages of any kind are allowed into the facility by
clients, guests or exhibitors without prior written consent of the Food Services General Manager or
Director of Catering Sales.

Food and Beverage Specifications
Our menu package features our most popular selections, highlighting items produced in-house with
the freshest local ingredients. We believe our menu provides a large and flexible variety of options
to meet your needs. In order to ensure the proper planning of your event, menu selections are due
a minimum of 45 days in advance, with preliminary attendance estimates. Special events that
require attention to complex or unusual arrangements may require additional planning time.

Your professional Catering Sales Manager also welcomes the opportunity to present a customized
menu. During the special menu planning and pricing evaluation, consideration is given to the
expected attendance. Should the guarantee fall significantly above or below the initial attendance
estimate, the proposed menu and pricing may be subject to change.

Confirmation of Orders
The Catering Services Agreement (contract) outlines the specific agreement between the client
and the Convention Center Catering Department. The signed Catering Services Agreement and a
deposit based on estimated food and beverage charges are due 60 days in advance of the first
scheduled

Your Catering Sales Manager will review your food and beverage specifications and, in turn,
provide you with written confirmation of the services via separate event orders for each function.
These event orders will form part of your contract and are to be confirmed, signed and returned 21
days in advance of the first scheduled service.

Guaranteed Attendance
Final event guarantees are due in writing by 12:00 p.m. (noon) of the assigned day per the
following schedule. Multi-day event guarantees are due for the duration of the event based on the
date of the first scheduled service.

Estimated Attendance (per event)     Number of Business Days* in Advance
            Up to 500                              Three days
            501-2,500                               Five days
           Over 2,500                              Seven days
*excludes holidays and weekends

Final guarantee cannot exceed the capacity of the event space nor be reduced once the deadline
expires. If the final guarantee increases or decreases by more than 25 percent from the initial
estimated attendance, additional charges may apply. Every effort will be made to accommodate
guarantee increases after they are submitted, subject to reasonable menu substitutions or
additional cost. In the absence of a final guarantee, the initial attendance estimate will be used.

Special Meals
Most special meal requests can be accommodated with advance notice. Your Catering Sales
Manager is available to consult with you on special meal requests and pricing to serve vegetarian,
                                    Food & Beverage and Other Information
                                               Page 8 of 104
vegan, kosher, halal and other dietary restrictions. Such special requests are due 21 days in
advance of your event. These special meal requests are to be included in your final guaranteed
attendance.

Overage
For plated meals, we are prepared to serve up to 5 percent above the guaranteed attendance (up
to 40 meals). A portion of the 5 percent overage prepared can be vegetarian meals to
accommodate on-site requests. Any meals, including vegetarian, served above the guarantee will
be invoiced at menu pricing upon consumption.
For buffet meals, the number of meals served above the guarantee will be calculated on a plate
count or an alternate, mutually agreed upon method. Meals served above the guarantee may be
subject to a 10 percent per person surcharge.

Alcohol Services
The Convention Center's catering contractor, as a licensee, is responsible for the administration of
the sale and service of all alcoholic beverages in accordance with Washington State Liquor Control
Board regulations. In compliance with Washington State law, all beer, wine, and liquor is supplied
by the Convention Center's catering contractor. No alcoholic beverages may be removed from the
Convention Center. Customer must comply with all applicable local and state liquor laws.

Menu Prices
Menu prices and catering policies are subject to change without notice.

Service Charge and Sales Tax
All food and beverage services are subject to an 18 percent taxable service charge. The sales tax
rate is currently 9.5 percent.

Tax-exemption requests for qualified non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations must be submitted in the
form of a Resale Certificate. Tax-exempt status is approved on a case-by-case basis.

Service charge and sales tax may be subject to change without notice.

Sales Minimums and Labor Fees
Functions of less than 25 guests will be subject to a $125 labor fee.

At chef stations, there is an additional charge of $125 for each chef. Butler service is available at
an additional cost of $125 per butler.

Final bar sales must average a minimum of $500 per bar. If sales fall below this amount, the
difference between actual sales and the minimum will be applied. Bar services of more than four
hours will be subject to an additional sales minimum of $125 per hour per bar.

Minimum order quantities, as applicable, are noted within the menu.

Payment Policy
We require full payment (100 percent) of total estimated charges 60 days in advance of the first
scheduled service with the return of the signed contract. For events with total estimated charges in
excess of $25,000, a 75 percent advance deposit may be arranged upon approved credit. A credit
application is due 90 days in advance of the event. Significant increases in food and beverage
charges above the initial deposit estimate may result in an additional amount due in advance of the
event

All remaining charges, including additional charges incurred on-site, are due within 30 days of the
                                     Food & Beverage and Other Information

of 50 percent of the estimated food and beverage charges. Any cancellation received after the final
guarantee is due will result in a fee equal to 100 percent of the charges on the affected function

Catering Service Standards
China Service
China and glassware are standard for buffet and seated meal services, unless otherwise specified
by the client. Coffee services are offered on china and disposable wares so guests have the option
to travel with their beverage. Within the exhibit halls, receptions that do not accompany dinner, bar-
only functions, and exhibitor booth services are services with disposable wares. China service may
be requested from your Catering Sales Manager for an additional fee.

Service Times
Meal Services are based on the following time guidelines:

            Seated breakfast or lunch       2 hours
            Seated dinner                   3 hours
            Buffet breakfast or lunch       1.5 hours
            Buffet dinner                   2 hours
            Continental breakfast           1.5 hours
            Coffee service                  1.5 hours
            Meeting breaks                  45 minutes
            Receptions                      1.5 hours

Extended service times or delay in service start may result in additional labor charges. Services
that require “continuous” or “all-day” services will incur a labor charge for the service hours. Seated
or buffet meals require two hours set up time in advance of the function. Reduced or early set-up
time may be assessed additional labor fees.

Table Standards
Seated meal services are planned for “72” round tables of 10 guests with a ratio of one server per
30 guests. Buffet meals are planned for one double-sided buffet per 200 guests with a ratio of one
server per 50 guests. Receptions will vary based on number of guests and variety of items, but
                                     Food & Beverage and Other Information
                                                Page 10 of 104
generally the ratio is one server per 75 guests. A labor charge will be assessed for service that
requires tables of less than 10 and butler-passed receptions.

Tabletop Service
Tables for seated meal functions are provided with mid-length linen in black or white. An
assortment of house napkin colors is also provided for seated meals. Tables for buffet meals,
beverage service or receptions include white linen and black skirts.

We can also provide complimentary votive candles and bud vases for dinner or reception events.
Your Convention Center Event Manager must approve the use of any other candle. Please consult
with your Catering Sales Manager for upgraded linen and floral options.

Bar Service
Standard host bar ratio is one bar per 100 guests. Non-hosted bar ratio is one bar per 125 guests.
The number if bars will be determined on final guarantee and event flow. If the number of bars
requested exceeds our standard ratio, additional labor fees may be assessed.

Beverage Services
Complimentary eight ounce bottled water is provided for all head tables and podiums. Meeting
rooms have access to complimentary water service in each room or adjacent pre-function areas.
These services are provided through your Convention Center Event Manager and include one
refresh per day.

We proudly serve Coco-Cola® products. Soft drinks and bottled water can be purchased on
consumption, with a minimum order of 25 items. Coffee service is based on a 1.5 hour service time
before replenishment. A minimum of 45 minutes is required to replenish beverage services. Please

for the requested time period and attendance.

                                      Network for the Needy

The Convention Center and ARAMARK participate in Network for the Needy (NFTN), an
organization developed by Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) to donate
any leftover prepared food.

The Network for the Needy was founded in 1990 by the Professional Convention Management
Association. Its original purpose was to help reduce hunger by simplifying the process of donating
food that is leftover from conventions. Since then, it has developed into a program that promotes
volunteerism within the convention and hospitality industry throughout the U.S. and Canada.

All leftover prepared meals are donated to local food banks and shelters. The Convention Center
will make all arrangements necessary to ensure that all useable food is made available to needy
charitable organizations.


                                             Food Lifeline

Food Lifeline is the Western Washington affiliate of America's Second Harvest. As Washington's
largest hunger relief agency, Food Lifeline is working to provide nutritious food to hungry, low-
income people in Western Washington. Each year Food Lifeline rescues and distributes 21 million
pounds of food to its food bank network of Western Washington in 17 counties feeding 560,000
hungry people.

Food Lifeline works in partnership with hundreds of food companies, food services organizations,
farmers, and community groups. Food producers can donate unmarketable yet wholesome food
that would otherwise be disposed of. Food Lifeline distributes this food through its Western
Washington network of more than 240 member food banks, shelters and meal programs.

ELECTRICAL BUDGET AND COST ESTIMATE
Please include a line item in your budget for charges related to electrical power provided by Edlen.
You may contact Edlen to discuss contract arrangements and payment terms for all electrical
needs.

COMPLIMENTARY ELECTRICAL
• All management electrical services are available at the advance payment rate.
• An exhibitor lay-in of power can be ordered through event management at a 20% discount
  package savings. This package service must provide power to all exhibitors and each 10’ space
  shall count as one booth. Event management is invoiced for this package, eliminating the need
  for individual exhibitor collection.
• We offer all electrical services at your registration areas at 50% of the regular rate.
• For banquets and special events, a “Special Event Package” is available. This package
  provides two 15 amp and two 20 amp, 120 volt outlets, (installed at location), for a special rate
  of $175.00. Please note that Edlen may not have an electrician on duty during the event with
  this package. If an electrician is called in, a minimum four-hour overtime charge will be
  assessed.
• Up to two 15 amp, 120 volt outlets will be provided to the show manager or association for their
  own booth located on the tradeshow floor, at no charge.
• Two 15 amp, 120 volt outlets are provided complimentary anywhere in the Convention Center
  with the only exception of trade shows by plugging into the wall without the assistance from
  Edlen electricians. There will be no additional charges if all equipment plugged in totals less
  than two 15 amp circuits per room. If additional outlets are required, the client will receive the
  original two outlets complimentary and will only be charged for the additional services beyond
  the two 15 amp outlets. If more power is required, the client will pay for power used.
• For events whose main purpose is to raise money for charity, Edlen will donate up to $1,000.00
  worth of labor and material services for their event. Please contact Edlen for details and
  qualifications.

                                             Page 15 of 104
Note: Meeting rooms, hallways, lobbies and exhibit halls used for tradeshows or registration, do not
qualify for the complimentary power service.

ELECTRICAL COSTS
Unless otherwise noted above, all events will be charged for any power hook up within the facility,
including power obtained from wall receptacles. The rates for electrical equipment and services are
published on the standard order form, which can be obtained from either Edlen or the Convention
Center.

Upon request, Edlen will provide each client an estimate of total power charges for the clients
operations within the Convention Center. Such estimates are based upon representations provided
to Edlen from the client. Actual invoices from Edlen will be based upon the actual installation, not
the estimate.

Edlen maintains an on-site inventory of additional rental equipment available at standard rental
rates for events who may require additional equipment, i.e. extension cords, plug strips, lights, etc.

IN-HOUSE SOUND SYSTEM
The house sound system for voice amplification and/or recording is complimentary for those who
select our preferred audio/visual provider.

For those who select an outside audio/visual company, your outside audio/visual company may
bring in their own stand-alone sound system for voice amplification and/or recording in meeting
rooms. The selected company may bring in their own stand-alone sound system for voice
amplification and/or recording in meeting rooms, ballrooms or exhibit halls, and no facility cost will
be incurred; or the selected company may use the Convention Center’s sound system and pay a
Usage Fee (below) - a per day charge to offset the Convention Center staff costs for operating the
sound system. There is no minimum charge and the maximum charge is $1,500 per day.

          Use Fees (Per Room, Per Day)
          Meeting Room            $ 50
          Ballroom                $100
          Exhibit Hall            $200

When using an outside audio-visual company, you must confirm use of house sound in your Room
Specs at least 60 days out in order for our in-house audio-visual company to plan accordingly.

                                 CLIENT SECURITY INFORMATION

The Washington State Convention & Trade Center (WSCTC) is very serious about the safety of our
guests. We understand that, unless you are comfortable in your surroundings, it is difficult to focus
on the important issues of your meeting or to enjoy the wonderful experiences Seattle and the
State of Washington have to offer.

The Center makes it a point to “think” safety everyday:

•   All Security staff, supervisors and managers, and Admission Attendant Leads are trained, and
    maintain annual Red Cross certification in First Aid and CPR. Most of the remaining staff are
    trained, and maintain annual Red Cross certification in CPR.

•   The Center has a Duty Supervisor program that assures there is a management representative
    on site to coordinate emergency activities. This supervisor is able to make radio contact with the
    security control center and Event Manager at all times.

•   Staff is drilled during annual staff meetings to assure that they understand their roles and
    responsibilities in emergencies. Key management staff that serve as decision-makers in
    emergency situations are always connected to security control by radio or telephone. During
    those times when key management staff may not be on site, a radio and cell phone protocol is
    in place to instantaneously contact these decision-makers.

•   In the event of an emergency situation, the Event Manager will be your primary contact to
    assure communication between the facility and your event.

•   Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s) are on site during all event hours when more than
    1,000 guests are in the facility. WSCTC will recommend EMT services to clients at other times
    when a risk is noted. The WSCTC is located just five minutes away from Seattle’s primary
    medical and trauma centers.

In addition to local medical emergency response capacity, the Center has a staff of security officers
who are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for your protection. The Center staffs a
permanent position in its security control center at all times. This security officer monitors all life
safety systems, including fire and smoke detection systems, as well as an extensive series of
active security cameras that cover the Center’s interior, exterior and parking garage entrances.

The Convention Center has numerous call stations throughout the facility (red phones) that are
directly connected to security control. Assistance call stations are also located outside the facility to
summon security support if it is needed. At all times, the Center has patrol officers inside the
facility, as well as bicycle patrol officers who patrol the exterior and parking areas. All officers are in
radio contact with and are dispatched by, the security control officer.

The exterior of the facility, as well as the interior of all parking facilities, are well lighted and
monitored by security cameras.

Our security personnel work closely with the Seattle Police department. During all national
conventions and for most major events, one Seattle police officer is on site and has radio contact
with our Security control center and the City of Seattle Police Dispatch. The Center works closely
with all special operations units of the Seattle Police Department and the Seattle Fire Department
to assure that these teams are familiar with the facility. Annually, units from both the fire and Police
                                         Emergency & Security Information
                                                Page 39 of 104
Department train in the facility on emergency response scenarios. Frequent communications occur
between the Center, the Seattle Police Department, the Washington State Patrol and the FBI to
assure that we are well informed regarding any known security risks.

We understand that our clients and guests are more conscious than ever about their personal and
group security. The WSCTC shares that concern and we have instituted the following:

•   Our security force maintains complete coverage in and around the facility.

•   Our bike patrol provides coverage on the exterior of our facility and in our parking garages.

•   Special educational meetings are regularly held with all staff members to stress the importance
    of security and to explain staff responsibility for observing and reporting all unusual or
    suspicious activity.

•   Refresher courses are given to security personnel and telephone personnel on bomb threat
    procedures.

•   Administrative personnel are trained to look for suspicious letters or packages. Additional
    controls are in place to assure that a tracking record exists for the receipt and forwarding of mail
    and packages.

•   All personnel and guests are required to wear some form of badge or event identification,
    plainly visible to staff and security. (This may not be the case for public events.) All temporary
    badges issued by the WSCTC expire within 24 hours. All contractor personnel must be badged
    and must check in through the security office when coming on site.

•   Routine sweeps are made of the facility daily to look for unusual conditions or unidentifiable
    packages.

•   The Center has requested constant monitoring of Interstate 5 that runs under the Center. The
    Department of Transportation has cameras that view this area and they immediately dispatch
    the Washington State Patrol in the event of suspicious activity.

The Center wants you to know the effort we expend on security and its importance to our
operations. In order for our facility and your event to be truly safe, we need your assistance in
maintaining this security profile. Please ask your attendees, contractors and exhibitors to help us
by cooperating with the security regulations. Also, please let us know if anything looks out of the
ordinary so that we can investigate. We hope your event in Seattle will be successful. We will do
our best to make it safe.

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

ALARMS

South Facility
In the unlikely event an alarm is activated, a loud klaxon-type horn will be heard in the affected
areas. This will be followed immediately by an announcement stating that a security officer has
been dispatched to the area to investigate and requesting you to please stand by for further
information.


                                        Emergency & Security Information
                                               Page 40 of 104
The horn will continue to be heard in the background, but at a lower sound level allowing event
activity to proceed.

Once the security officer has located and determined the cause for the alarm, another
announcement will be made giving instructions or in most cases, stating that it was a false alarm.

While in the alarm condition, any doors that are magnetically held open will close automatically.
These doors are primarily located on the 6th floor. The elevators will recall to the bottom levels and
remain inoperative until reset. The escalators will continue to operate.

A total time elapsed from the time the alarm first sounds to the time everything is reset and back to
normal will be approximately 15 minutes. This is a result of the Seattle Fire Department's
requirement to physically inspect the area of the alarm and verify that no hazard exists. When this
has occurred, permission will be given to clear the alarm.

North Facility
If an alarm is activated in the North Exhibition Halls (including 4D, the pedestrian bridge) or any of
the North Lobby space, a series of three short alarm tones will be heard followed by a brief pause,
with this sequence repeating throughout the activation in the affected area(s). The strobe lights on
the walls will also be activated. All occupants of the affected area(s) should immediately proceed to
the nearest exit and leave the facility.

During any alarm activation both the escalators and elevators in the North Lobby space will
become inoperative and cannot be used for evacuation purposes.

If the activation is caused by a false alarm our staff will notify all guests that the building is safe to
re-enter. Entrance is gained through the appropriate doors for your event.

A total time elapsed from the time the alarm first sounds to the time everything is reset and back to
normal will be approximately 15 minutes. This is a result of the Seattle Fire Department's
requirement to physically inspect the area of the alarm and verify that no hazard exists. When this
has occurred, permission will be given to clear the alarm.

EMERGENCY SERVICES

Medical Emergencies

If a medical emergency occurs while you are at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center,
please contact the Security Control office immediately by dialing extension 5127 from any house
phone located in the facility. In addition, there are red “hot line” phones located throughout the
facility that will connect you directly to the security department. You can also ask any uniformed
WSCTC employee with a radio to assist you.

Contacting Security Control will greatly minimize response time in the event an emergency medical
unit has to be dispatched to the Convention Center. Security officers can lead emergency
response directly to the individual in need, saving critical minutes. For this reason, WSCTC
requests that guests NOT contact 911 directly when possible.

           IF A MEDICAL EMERGENCY OCCURS OFF WSCTC PREMISES CALL 911

                                 LETTER OF UNDERSTANDING
                                      Effective October 2002
                          Regarding Work Rules for Freight Handling
                    Between the Washington State Convention & Trade Center
                                                and
                                      Champion Decorating
                                       Freeman Decorating
                                    GES Decorating Company
                        Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters
                                  Triumph Decorating Company

The organizations listed above have reached an understanding related to certain work rules for the
handling of freight at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center.

Set out below are the understandings of the parties:

1.    Definitions: The following terms related to the movement of freight are hereby adopted as
      definitions for this Letter of Understanding:

      Hand Carried Freight: those materials that can be carried by an individual without the use of
      commercial hand trucks, dollies or carts. Hand Carried Freight shall also include: self-
      contained shipping containers with wheels, items carried on personal luggage carts and
      other small or folding hand trucks, and does not exceed 50 lbs.

      Cart Carried Freight: those materials that must and can be carried on a commercial cart,
      dolly or hand truck and can be safely controlled by a single individual. Loads on carts, dollies
      or hand trucks should not be any greater than four feet tall, three feet wide and four feet
      long. Cart carried freight should generally be no more than 200 pounds in weight. To be
      considered cart carried freight delivery vehicles bringing cart carried freight to the
      Convention Center must be able to enter and park within the Center’s Cart Carried freight
      delivery areas. Freight being delivered to the loading docks of the facility will not be
      considered cart carried freight, unless the decorator agrees to allow such use of the dock in
      limited instances.

      Commercial Freight: all freight other than hand carried or cart carried freight shall be defined
      as commercial freight and shall be handled by qualified freight handlers, using commercial
      equipment such as fork trucks, pallet jacks, commercial carts, hand trucks and dollies.

2.    The Washington State Convention & Trade Center agrees to honor the decisions of its
      clients related to the methods by which they handle or contract to handle the delivery,
      loading and unloading of freight to the Convention Center, and the delivery of freight from its
      point of receipt to the exhibit booth and back. If a client contracts with a decorator for
      exclusive handling of all commercial and cart carried freight, the Convention Center will
      honor this decision. The decorator will provide qualified freight handlers for this purpose.
      Likewise, the Center will honor a client’s decision to allow its exhibitors to handle their own
      cart carried freight, as long as this activity falls within the guidelines established by the
      definitions set out above.

      In those instances where the client chooses to allow exhibitor handled cart carried freight,
      the Convention Center will supply carts to the exhibitors for this purpose. The Convention
      Center will also allow a client to handle their own commercial freight and/or cart carried
                                           Exhibitor Information
                                             Page 51 of 104
       freight, when the client has the capacity to do such work with their own qualified employees
       and equipment. Under no circumstances, however, will the Convention Center allow
       inexperienced laborers to move freight, defined as commercial freight. The movement and
       handling of all commercial freight must be accomplished by qualified freight handlers who
       possess current certifications related to the use of fork trucks and other freight handling
       equipment.

3.     The Washington State Convention & Trade Center reserves to itself, exclusively, the right to
       manage and oversee the operation of the Convention Center Dock, truck ramps and cart
       carried freight areas. All decisions related to safety, truck movement, routing of freight and
       other dock management decisions will remain with the Convention Center through their
       designated representatives, such as the Convention Center Dock Master or Transportation
       Attendants. When the Dock Master is presented with a “target” move-in plan in advance of
       the event, he will make every reasonable effort to accomplish the targeted move-in
       schedule.

4.     Decorators are typically responsible for: registration counters, temporary offices, entrance
       displays, floor layout, drapes, rental furniture, decorating rental items, masking, aisle signs,
       hanging banners and aisle carpeting, install and dismantling of booths, unloading and
       loading of commercial freight except as otherwise described in this letter of understanding.
       Individual exhibitors who wish to install and dismantle their own booths may do so only if
       show management has not approved an agreement that grants the decorator or Exhibitor
       Appointed Contractors (EACs) exclusive rights to such install and dismantle. When an
       exclusive agreement has not been established, exhibitors may use their own employees to
       accomplish such install and dismantle. In these instances, the exhibitor shall not use
       temporary pick-up labor for such work. The exhibitor may, however, contract with an “Install
       and Dismantle” (I&D) contractor to install and dismantle their booth. In all cases, the
       exhibitor shall comply with all state fire and safety regulations. If an exclusive contractual
       relationship has been established between the show producer and the decorator, the
       Convention Center will honor that relationship.

5.     The Convention Center will without limitation allow its own services contractors or the
       client’s services contractors to load and unload their equipment, freight and supplies at the
       convention center dock without the use of the decorators or their employees. The dock
       master will take all reasonable steps to assure that such load and unload does not adversely
       impact the work of the decorator.

Upon request from the client the Convention Center will supply its clients with a copy of this letter of
understanding. The Convention Center also intends to set out these understandings in its event
planning guides, which are routinely supplied to clients.

Pike Street and Pine Street. Passenger elevators and escalators may not be used for transporting

Convention Center Visitors Badge at the Security Control Office.

Bring Your Own Carts: to expedite your work. We have a limited number of flatbed carts available
on a first come, first served basis. Carts are checked-out at the HCF zone in the garage. Please
return the cart when finished.

Door Clearance is 6'0" wide x 6'5" high: Door clearance is 6' x 6'5" at the Hand Carried Freight area

access hours for HCF and the loading dock. Contact Show Management in advance to arrange for
your restocking needs during show days.

                                   LOADING AND UNLOADING

Loading Facilities

The truck service area and loading dock are located on Level 4 immediately adjacent to the Exhibit
Halls with access via a two-lane enclosed ramp.

The South Loading Dock contains 11 total bays with four levelers. The dock clearance is 16 feet
high x 25 feet wide; nine bays will accommodate 65-foot trailers; two bays will accommodate 32-foot
trucks.

The North Loading Dock contains 10 total bays, all with levelers; The Dock clearance is 16’ high. All
bays will accommodate any street legal trailer.

The Convention Center does not endorse exclusivity by the decorator or drayage company to
handle freight at the loading dock. You may, at your discretion, allow exhibitors to load/unload their
own items at no charge in the Convention Center's hand-carried/cart-carried freight loading docks.

     Freight Deliveries

     We are unable to accept/receive deliveries of freight, crates and mail for exhibitors
     or attendees. Please make advance shipment arrangements through your official
     service contractor. Please provide your Event Manager with a list of all deliveries.

     Due to limited storage, show management freight cannot arrive any earlier than
     one business day before your first contracted date.



MARSHALING YARD

You may be required to use a marshaling yard for the staging of any truck activity in order to avoid
any queuing in and around the Convention Center. The following factors will warrant use of a
marshaling yard: Use of 60,000 - 100,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space for tradeshow activity, or heavy
truck volumes associated with the show as determined by the Event Control Supervisor. Show
Management is responsible to plan accordingly and inform all exhibitors accordingly.

      s.f. DPD issues permits for these structures under the following conditions:

      •   Structures over 4 feet in height erected inside a tent. Structures include stages, platforms
          or bleachers.
       • Structures attached to buildings or permanent structures for support.
       • When SFD determines the tent/canopy requires a Building Code review for any reason,
          including large area or height, unusual shape, location, occupancy or foul weather use.
Stages & Platforms
       Higher than 4 feet.
Bleachers & Chair Risers
       Higher than 4 feet high.
   Structures for Banners/Signs
                      DPD reviews the structures that are supporting, banners or signs if the size of
                      the structure requires a building permit.
   Structures designed for stage lighting, projectors, cameras or other miscellaneous items
   Site Built structures
                      Each structure will be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine if a
                      building permit is required. Any structure that is considered a “play structures
                      will not require a Building Permit. This includes skateboard structures.

                               Multi-Level and Covered Exhibit Booths

This information is provided as a general guideline of the policies pertaining to the installation of a
multi-level or covered booth. These regulations are described in the National Fire Protection Act
(Section 12.7.4.3.7), as applied by the Seattle Fire Department, as well as in the Seattle Building
Code and Convention Center Policy. Facility Clients, Exhibit Managers, Show Decorators, and/or
General Service Contractors are responsible for ensuring that all exhibitors are aware of and
comply with these regulations. The review process for covered or multi-level booths should be
started early to ensure approval before the start of the show. Please contact your Convention
Center Event Manager if you have questions regarding this information or the overall process. Call
(206) 694-5000 and ask to speak to the Event Manager assigned to your event.

Definitions
           A booth that has any material or object placed over or upon the exhibit is considered a
           covered booth. (e.g. roof, canopy, tent, Moss fabric, etc.)
           An exhibit that has a second level or tier constructed on top of the exhibit or portion of the
           exhibit, is accessed by stairs, and can be occupied by persons is considered a multi-
           level booth.

Covered & Multi-level booths of 100 square feet to 299 square feet
         Booth plan must be reviewed and approved by the Fire Marshal at least 3 months in
         advance.
         Minimum of (1) “2A 10BC” rated fire extinguisher must be placed within the covered
         area.
         A smoke detector must be placed at the highest point of each covered area.
         There must be a means of turning off electrical power to the booth during non-show
         hours.
         See also multi-level booth information below.

Covered & Multi-level booths of 300 square feet and above
      •  In addition to the above requirements, the following will apply:
      •  A minimum of 3 months lead-time may be required for the approval process.
      •  An approved temporary automatic fire suppression sprinkler system must be installed.
      •  The following information needs to be provided to the Fire Department Engineer:
             Name and contact information for the licensed & qualified sprinkler contractor.
             Engineer certified plans of the sprinkler head locations, pipe sizes, and flow
             calculations.
         The exhibitor is allowed to select the qualified provider of their choice to design and
         install their in-booth sprinkler system.
         Convention Center’s selected life safety system contractor must connect the booth
         system to the facility’s life safety system. Please contact your Event Manager for an
         estimate of charges.

ALL Multi-level booths of any square footage
A Temporary Structure Permit must be obtained from Seattle Department of Planning and
Development (DPD). Contact Nick Maricich at (206) 233-7175 or nick.maricich@seattle.gov.

The following information needs to be submitted to DPD at least 3 months in advance:

Special Considerations
         Approval of a covered or multi-level booth plan is contingent upon final approval of the
         overall exhibit hall floor plan submitted by show management.
         Coverings constructed of open grate or mesh greater than ¼ inch or a UL listed drop out
         ceiling may be exempt from the sprinkler requirement.
         It is suggested that covered booths of less than 100 square feet submit plans to the EC
         for review.
         A series or combination of covered areas, whether in one booth or adjacent booths, must
         be separated by a minimum of 10 feet.
         An exhibit that fails to comply with these regulations will not be allowed to install for the
         event.

CEILING LOADS

Please review your overhead equipment hanging needs, in advance, with your Event Manager.

MEETING ROOMS AND HALLWAYS

There are no weight bearing pick-points in these areas.

SIGNAGE, BANNERS AND DECORATIONS

Your event entrance location will be listed daily by the Convention Center at the elevator and
escalator landings.

Signs, banners and decorations may not be affixed to the facility or suspended from any surfaces
in the Convention Center without prior review and approval. All items should be free-standing and
may not obstruct exit doors, exit lights, fire alarm pull boxes, fire hose cabinets, fire extinguishers or
facility signage. Suspension points do not include light fixtures, sprinkler heads, conduit, HVAC
ducts, etc.

No pins, tacks or adhesives of any sort are permitted on any wall or door. No signs or banners may
be placed on the exterior of the facility.

It is imperative that your banners (size and placement) be approved in advance of your show.
Banners may be hung over the Galleria escalators on Levels 2 and 3, provided they allow
clearance above the escalator of nine feet and are affixed to the base of the balcony handrail.
They must be made of lightweight materials so as not to place undue weight or stress the
handrails.

If your event has not hired a show contractor to provide the labor and expertise to handle your
signage installation needs, please let us know how we might assist you. Our staff might be able to

assist in hanging banners or signs. Check with your Event Manager for the suitable hanging device
to bring; many times an "S" hook will work well for lightweight banners and signs.

Our Event Services staff can assist you with identifying directional signage locations that will best
meet the needs of your guests arriving on foot, by car, taxi or perhaps a shuttle. We can help you
determine the quantities of signage needed and/or the locations.

Show Banners may be placed on certain light poles outside and approaching the Convention
Center. These light poles are controlled by the city of Seattle. To obtain information on how to get
your banners on these light poles contact:

Submittal of Permit Applications and Floor Plans

To facilitate the permitting and approval process with the Seattle Fire Department, our staff at the
Convention Center will initiate the permit application process for your event. This process must
begin before booth sales can begin.

We ask that you follow these simple guidelines:

   1. Please have your decorating company or service contractor, forward all floor plans, Fire
      permit applications and checks directly to the Convention Center. Your Event Manager will
      notify the Fire Marshal and file the permit on your behalf. Shortly thereafter, the Event
      Manager, the Fire Marshal (and when possible, a local representative from your service
      contractor) will review your plans.

   2. The Fire Marshal will note any necessary modifications to the plans (as required by Fire
      Code). Upon completion of review, we will mail stamped copies of the floor plans to you
      and your respective service contractor.

   3. Your Event Manager will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding
      modifications to the floor plans. He or she will work on your behalf, directly with the Fire
      Marshal’s office for final resolution on any necessary changes.

   4. Refer to usable space diagrams (located in the Facility Specs & Miscellaneous Information
      section) for placing equipment in Lobby areas.

As a reminder, permits, plans and the appropriate fees, must be submitted a minimum of 30 days
before the start of your event. In addition, booth sales may not proceed without approved floor
plans. By following these simple steps, we can better serve you and expedite the permitting
process.

A complete listing of requirements and applications can be found on line at the Special Events
Section of the Seattle Fire Department’s website:

http://www.cityofseattle.net/fire/FMO/specialEvents/SEHome.htm

General Fire Safety Guidelines for the Convention Center as a Public Assembly

Floor plans are reviewed by the Fire Marshal. After review, floor plans will be stamped "Approved",
or required changes will be indicated. The Convention Center Event Manager or Fire Marshal will
communicate with the client or contractor on required plan revisions. After floor plans have
received final approval, the Public Assembly Permit will be issued. The Fire Marshal will normally
conduct a final walk-through of the show floor prior to first show day, and may also randomly
inspect during show hours.




                                          Permits & Applications
                                             Page 65 of 104
Points to Consider in the Permit Process:

   1. Booth sales cannot begin until floor plans have been reviewed and approved by both the
      Seattle Fire Marshal and the Convention Center Event Manager.

   2. Permit application, along with approved plans, must be submitted to the Fire Marshal at
      least 45 days before the first move-in day. (We suggest submitting floor plans as early as
      possible for review and approval.)

   3. The Seattle Fire Marshal requires three floor plan drawings be submitted, along with the
      Permit application. Floor plan drawings should be 8 1/2" x 11". The drawing should indicate
      aisles and aisle widths, booths and exits for 4A, B, C, D, E and F, the 6th floor and all
      proposed use of lobby areas. Drawings submitted for ballrooms and meeting rooms must
      indicate proposed use of corridors and lobby spaces (including registration areas, entry
      units, etc).

   4. Important: Permit applications received less than 10 days prior to the event for which they
      are being used will be assessed an additional late permit surcharge of 75% of the original
      permit fee. Applications received 3 business days or less prior to the event may not be
      processed and the permit not issued.

Miscellaneous Show Floor Considerations:

   1. All decorations, drapes, signs, banners, plastic displays, hay, split bamboo, combustibles,
      etc. must be flame-retardant. Table coverings with overhang greater than 6" must also be
      flame-retardant. Items that require treatment with a flame-retardant product will be subject to
      a flame test prior to or during show hours. Wood panels greater than 1/4" original thickness
      are considered flame-resistant.

      The use of oilcloth, tarpaper, sisal paper, nylon, Orlon, and certain synthetic materials
      cannot be made flame resistant, and their use is strictly prohibited.

   2. Special Effects permits are required for indoor fireworks, etc. Each of these effects will be
      subject to extensive review and will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Permits are not
      required to use smoke machines or lasers. Smoke machine usage must be communicated
      to the Fire Marshal and Event Manager in case it becomes necessary to authorize
      deactivation of smoke sensors.

   3. Displayed vehicles must be indicated on submitted floor plans and are subject to the
      following restrictions:

      a. Fuel in tanks is limited to a maximum of ¼ tank or five (5) gallons. Diesel fuel tanks are
         limited to a maximum of ¼ tank. Vehicles with no or non-functioning fuel gauges will not
         be allowed in public assembly areas without prior approval by the Fire Marshal.

      b. Battery cables must be disconnected, with the cable ends taped over to prevent
         sparking.

      c. Fuel tank fill caps must either be lockable or taped shut.

      d. Visqueen should protect the flooring.

   4. Deep fat fryers can be used under the following conditions without prior approval or permit:

   a. Maximum capacity 1 gallon.
   b. Fire extinguisher readily available in the booth with a minimum UL rating of [Class "K".]
   c. A metal cover capable of covering the deep fat fryer shall be readily available in the
      booth.

   NOTE: Deep fat fryers with a capacity of more than 1 gallon require advance approval from
   the Fire Marshal.

5. Candles may only be used in public assembly areas if under permit for Open Flame, and
   only within an approved container (specific conditions apply). Sterno does not require a
   permit.

6. LPG (Propane) and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) are prohibited in the Convention
   Center. Exception: 8 oz. butane canisters, which are used in conjunction with tabletop
   burners. Each exhibit booth is limited to one 8-oz. canister. If additional canisters are
   needed, they must be stored outside the building in an area that is acceptable to the Fire
   Department and the Convention Center.

7. Combustible storage is not allowed on the event floor. Combustible storage is specifically
   prohibited in dead areas, behind booth drapes or in unsold areas. Empty cardboard boxes
   intended for repackaging must be removed from the event floor. Booth storage of
   literature/brochures is limited to full boxes that can be easily stored under tables in the
   booth.

8. Helium, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Nitrous oxide tanks are allowed on the event floor with prior
   approval by the Fire Marshal. Tanks must be properly labeled for contents and firmly
   secured in the upright position, with valves protected against damage. Nitrous oxide and
   Oxygen tanks over 250 cubic feet are prohibited. Oxidizing gases (Oxygen or Nitrous oxide)
   in amounts in excess of 503 cubic feet may only be used in public assembly areas under
   permit for Hazardous Materials.

9. Indicate the location and size of Official Contractor Service Centers on exhibit floor plans
   when they are initially submitted during permit process. The air walls, which allow access
   from the truck service corridor into Exhibit Halls 4A, B, C, E and F must always be kept
   closed during show hours (including the man-doors in the air walls). The air walls are rated
   as 1 1/2-hour fire separation between the Exhibit Hall areas and the truck service corridor
   and are mandated by the Fire Code for public safety. Decorators, please note this Fire Code
   requirement.

10. Event planners requesting permission to mask off areas or block access/visibility to an exit
    may in some cases be allowed to do so by adding illuminated exit signs and a double baffle
    in the drape, if they have received prior approval from the Fire Marshal. It should not be
    assumed that this variance would always be allowed. Instead, these proposals will be
    evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

   Additional signs may be required for fire extinguisher or fire hose cabinets due to problems
   with visibility because of booths or displays.

   Exhibit Hall Guidelines:

   1. A clear perimeter exit aisle of 10 feet must be maintained in all exhibit halls.

   2. Exhibit Halls 4ABC and 4EF require a minimum of 5 to 6 straight north/south aisles.
      Perimeter aisles do not count in this 5 to 6 north/south minimum. The minimum aisle width
      should be 9 to 10 feet. Eight-foot north/south aisles may be allowed in some instances, but
      are considered an exception rather than the rule. A determination to allow 8-foot north/south
      aisles will be made on a case-by-case basis and will be dependent upon a number of factors
      as evaluated by the Fire Marshal.

   3. Each show in 4ABC and 4EF must have a minimum of one continuous and straight
      east/west cross aisle with a minimum width of 12 feet. Multiple east/west cross aisles are
      preferred, each with a minimum width of 9 to 10 feet. East/west cross aisles must extend
      from 4A and B through to 4C, if 4C is being used.

   4. The storage of crates, cardboard boxes and fiber cases is not permitted in the truck service
      corridors behind Exhibit Halls 4AB and 4F. (Designated areas are established for use by the
      Convention Center only).

   5. All fire hose cabinets and fire extinguishers must be visible and kept clear and readily
      accessible during move-in, show days and move-out. The issue of visibility and ease of
      access to fire equipment applies to the event floor as well as service corridors.

   6. The entrance/exit at the south end of 4C must be kept clear and usable for emergency
      exiting at all times. Booths, tables, registration units, etc. are not allowed in the 4C exit
      corridor, which is defined as the area between the pillars at the entrance to 4C from the
      Galleria.

   7. Large covered booths [over 100 square feet] require that the floor plan and booth plan be
      pre-approved by the Fire Marshal. Booths up to 300 square feet require a fire extinguisher.

      NOTE: In covered booths over 300 square feet, the Fire Marshal will require that a fire
      suppression system be installed in the booth.

South Lobby Guidelines:

   1. Major attractions or curiosities should not be located at the entrance to the exhibit space
      (i.e., espresso carts, giveaways, radio remotes and popular booths or personalities). This
      practice tends to block entrance to the event floor and impedes emergency exiting when
      needed most.

   2. The South Lobby (entrance to Exhibit Halls 4A and 4B) is a Fire/Building Code mandated
      exit corridor, and as such, its use by the Convention Center clients is subject to the
      following:

      a. The exit doors at the south end on both the east and west side of the South Lobby must
         remain unobstructed. There must be clear visibility and access to these exit doors for
         patrons exiting in an emergency from Halls 4A and 4B.

      b. A visible and unobstructed pathway (width equal to the total width of exit doors) must
         cross the South Lobby from Hall 4A to access the exit doors on the west side of the
         South Lobby.
                                           Permits & Applications
                                              Page 68 of 104
           A visible and unobstructed pathway (width equal to the total width of exit doors) must
           cross the South Lobby from Hall 4B to access the exit doors on the east side of the
           South Lobby.

      c. A maximum of ten standard-sized (6-foot) registration counters is allowed along the
         south wall of the South Lobby. These registration counters must be placed in such a
         manner that they don't block the exit door in the southeast corner. The maximum amount
         of useable space is 60’ by 18’. (See diagrams)

      d. All registration counters, kiosks and entry units must be indicated on the submitted floor
         plans and must be drawn to scale.

      e. Items placed at the base of the grand staircase must be situated such that they leave a
         clear exit aisle way coming down the stairs that is a minimum 8 feet in width. This 8-foot
         aisle way is exiting from the 6th floor and is required unless the 6th floor is unoccupied.

      f. Usable space alongside the grand escalator in the South Lobby is restricted to 9 feet out
         from the escalator wall and running 40 feet in length.

      g. Tables, bulletin boards, etc. are not allowed along the glass wall that runs parallel to the
         grand escalator.

      h. Maximum usable space in the South Lobby between the entrance doors to Exhibit Halls
         4A and 4B is 30 feet by 30 feet. This maximum usable space may be decreased by the
         Fire Marshal based on the location and number of kiosks, registration counters, etc. in or
         near the center of the South Lobby.

      i.   Entry units placed in front of Halls 4A and 4B must be indicated on the submitted floor
           plans and must span the width of all the exit doors so that the supporting bases are not in
           the exit pathway from 4A and 4B. If a center tower is being proposed for the entry unit,
           the center support base cannot exceed 1/2 meter square.

      j.   Entry units are not permitted in front of the glass doors on Level 4 of the Galleria. This is
           the glass wall located just west of the base of the grand escalator.

      k. If an entry unit is proposed to span from the grand escalator to the south glass wall
         (plaza), it must not impact ingress or egress, i.e., the bases for the entry unit must be
         next to the grand escalator and next to the south glass wall with no center tower.

Meeting Rooms and Ballrooms (Level 6):

   1. The east, middle and west corridors leading out into the East and West Lobbies are required
      emergency exit corridors. Their use is restricted and subject to the following guidelines:

      a. In the middle and east corridors, exhibitors can only come out 30" from the meeting room
         walls (suggest using a 30" table that is pushed in tight to the wall). Booths and display
         cases are not permitted in the middle and east corridors leading away from Ballrooms
         6A, B and C.

      b. In the west corridor, exhibitors may come out 48" from the meeting room walls. Booths
         are not permitted in the west corridor, which leads away from Hall 6E.

      c. The East and West Lobbies are considered collection points for patrons exiting in an
         emergency. These two lobby areas can be used for registration, but are subject to Fire
         Marshal restrictions.

          Registration that is being proposed for the East and West Lobby areas must be indicated
          on the floor plans, which are submitted with the Public Assembly Permit application.

      d. All meeting rooms are subject to maximum occupancy load requirements as dictated by
         the Seattle Fire Code. Meeting rooms with an occupancy load greater than 49 persons
         require a minimum of two exits from the room.

      e. A 6-foot exit corridor must be maintained from the East Lobby through the East Lobby
         lounge (area south of the East Lobby). This exiting leads to the grand staircase and shall
         not be obstructed at any time.

Galleria Areas:

   1. Popular attractions that would restrict or slow foot traffic are not permitted at the top of the
      Galleria escalator landings in both the North and South Facility. Please check with the Fire
      Marshal representative and your Convention Center Event Manager if any attraction or
      entrance unit is proposed for these locations.

   2. Galleria meeting rooms are subject to maximum occupancy load requirements as dictated
      by the Seattle Fire Code. Meeting rooms with an occupancy load greater than 49 persons
      require a minimum of two exits from the room.

            GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR TEMPORARY PLACE OF ASSEMBLY

When a Permit is Required:

Operating a carnival, fair or alterations to the existing exiting configuration, character or use of the
facility in any manner; when using a liquid or gas fueled vehicle or equipment for display or
competition inside an assembly occupancy. Separate permits are required for use of candles or
other open flame devices, flammable or combustible liquids or gases, special effects/pyrotechnics
(fireworks), cryogenics or any time a material or operations is introduced into an assembly
occupancy that could possibly pose a hazard.

Please refer to the General Fire Safety Guidelines for more information regarding permit
applications and fees, which can be obtained through your Event Manager.

Open Flame Devises/Candles

For use of more than one candle a permit is required and the type is subjected to review. Any open
flame device other than a candle is subject to review and a permit may be required.

Pyrotechnics

General requirements for approval of pyrotechnics include the following:

   •   Operation must be under the direct supervision of a State of Washington Licensed
       Pyrotechnician.
   •   Certificate of insurance for a minimum of two million dollars. (Certificate must be reviewed
       and approved by the City of Seattle Office of Risk Management.)

the Seattle Fire Department.

Heaters that operate with the propane fuel source located outside the Place of Assembly and the
heated air is pumped into the assembly area (e.g. salamander heaters) are allowed but require a
Fire Department permit. The propane generally must be a minimum of 10 feet from the Place of
Assembly.

Display of Liquid or Gas-fueled Vehicles

Using a liquid or gas-fueled vehicle or equipment in a Place of Assembly for display is allowed
under the following conditions:

   •   Maximum fuel allowed is ¼ of a tank or 5 gallons whichever is less.
   •   All gas covers shall be taped or have a locking gas cap.
   •   Battery cables shall be disconnected and taped.
   •   Vehicles with no fuel gauge or with a broken fuel gauge shall not be allowed on the event
       floor and shall not be displayed, unless the Fire Marshal’s Office gives prior approval.

Use of liquid or gas-fueled vehicles or equipment for working demonstrations or competition must
be reviewed and approved by the Fire Marshals’ Office. Requirements can vary based on the
nature of the competition/demonstration, number of spectators, etc. Because of the varying
requirements, contact the Fire Marshal’s Office at (206) 386-1450 and request to speak to a
representative of the Special Events Section.

DPD issues permits for these structures under the following conditions:

       •   Structures over 4 feet in height erected inside a tent. Structures include stages, platforms
           or bleachers.
       •   Structures attached to buildings or permanent structures for support.
       •   When SFD determines the tent/canopy requires a Building Code review for any reason,
           including large area or height, unusual shape, location, occupancy or foul weather use.

Stages & Platforms
      Higher than 4 feet.

Bleachers & Chair Risers
      Higher than 4 feet high.

Structures for Banners/Signs
       DPD reviews the structures that are supporting, banners or signs if the size of the structure
       requires building permit.

Structures designed for stage lighting, projectors, cameras or other miscellaneous items

Site Built Structures
       Each structure will be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine if a building permit is
       required. Any structure that is considered a “play” structure will not require a Building Permit.
       This includes skateboard structures.

The City of Seattle requires a Seattle Business License for all individuals, partners, corporations or
associations that come into the Seattle city limits to solicit revenues by the sale of retail, wholesale
or taking orders for future delivery in the State of Washington. The Business License fee is $90.00
annually.

The City adopted Ordinance #117002 in January 1994 to make it easier and fair for participants of
temporary events coming in from outside of the city to do business here. This Trade Show
Ordinance requires the organizer/promoter of a show that lasts for less than (14) days with more
than (25) participants to take out a Trade Show License. This license accompanies the Seattle
Business License, and acts as an umbrella license for all the participants of the show, eliminating
them from the requirement of purchasing their own annual Business License. This Trade Show
License also applies to Trade Shows and exhibitions accompanying a convention or major national
meeting, although there may be an exemption from the fees.

The Trade Show License fee is calculated on the formula of $5.00 per participant per day of the
show. There is an exemption for any participant who holds a current Seattle Business License.
Also exempt are government agencies and certain non-profit groups, with regard to their activity at
the show.

If there is an admission to your event, you may be required to register for Admission Tax from this
same office. The Admission Tax rate is 5%.

CALCULATION OF ADMISSION AND B&O TAX

Admission Tax Due
• Admission tax rate is 5%.
• Value of complimentary tickets issued must be included in amount subject to tax.
• Divide gross value of all tickets by 1.05 to back out tax before multiplying by .05.

B&O Tax Due
• If gross receipts do not exceed $50,000 in a calendar year, no Business & Occupation Tax is
  levied.
• If gross receipts exceed $50,000 in a calendar year, the Business & Occupation Tax is levied at
  the following rates:

    Service Use this classification for ticket sales & booth rental fees.
            Subtract only actual Admission Tax paid. Gross ticket sales less
            Admission Tax multiplied by .00415 equals B&O tax due.

    Retail    Concessions, programs, novelties, T-shirts, etc.
              Gross receipts multiplied by .00215 equals B&O tax due.

LIABILITY OF LOCATION OWNERS AND OPERATORS
The owner, lessee or custodian of the premises is liable for collection and remittance of admission
taxes if the person conducting a temporary or transitory event upon their premises fails to collect
and remit the same.
