No variation of or amendment to this contract shall be valid unless made in writing and signed by or on behalf of each of the Organizer and the Exhibitor.
The failure of the Organizer at any time to enforce any provision of this contract or the Rules and Regulations shall not affect its rights thereafter to require complete performance by the Exhibitor, nor shall the waiver of any breach of any such provision be taken as or held to be a waiver of any subsequent breach or to be a waiver of the breach itself.

In the event of total or partial non-payment, the Organizer shall be within its legal rights to withdraw any support or services from the Exhibitor until all outstanding invoices have been paid. Exhibitors shall be responsible for paying any amounts due for support or ancillary services in connection with their involvement at the Exhibition and doing so in line with the terms on payment dates (above).

OCCUPATION OF SPACE
The Exhibitor shall prepare their stand by the time at which the Exhibition is open. Any Exhibitor that has not done so may be deemed to have cancelled and may have their space reallocated to another exhibitor. No Exhibitor may vacate their stand before the time at which the Exhibition closes.

(iii) Nothing in this contract excludes or limits the liability of the Organizer for death or personal injury caused by the Organizer’s negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation for any other matter which it would be illegal for the Company to exclude or attempt to exclude its liability.
POSTPONEMENT OR VARIATION
(i) The Organizer and its respective officers, agents and employees shall not be liable for loss, damage or delay resulting from acts of God, acts of war, adverse weather, civil commotion, strikes or lock-outs intervention or regulation, military activity or any other circumstances which shall make it impossible or inadvisable to hold the exhibition on the designated dates, and the Organizer reserves the right to re-schedule the exhibition at another date (subject to the overriding terms of point ii below). Furthermore, the Organizer will not be responsible to the Exhibitor should any conflicts or misinterpretations arise with its sponsors, agents or other bodies regarding any and all aspects of the exhibition which may affect the Exhibitors. The Exhibitor is recommended to adequately insure their participation expenses in case of such cancelation etc. The Exhibitor acknowledges that in the event that the exhibition is rescheduled the Organizer will have sustained damages and losses as a result and the Exhibitor hereby waives all claims for damages or compensation against the Organizer. The sum paid to the Organizer as fees or otherwise in connection with the Exhibition shall remain the property of the Organizer.

Whilst the Organizers shall act in good faith, the name of any Exhibitor which may appear on any Show Program or stand number or any statement made by or on behalf of the Organizer that any exhibitor is booked to attend the exhibition provisionally or otherwise shall not constitute any warranty, representation or undertaking by the Organizer that any such exhibitor will attend.
SETTING UP TABLES
(i) The Exhibitor hereby acknowledges that the Organizer has appointed official contractors in conjunction with the Venue Owner for the setting up of the event. Where directed by the Organizer the Exhibitor must use these contractors for helping set up the Exhibitor’s stand. However, an Exhibitor may be permitted to appoint another contractor for design and set-up of their exhibition table, or a sponsored stand or other dedicated space, subject to the Organizer being formally advised in writing in advance of the show. Stands may only be created whose design specifications have been approved in advance by the Organizer and Venue Owner.
(ii) Exhibits shall not obstruct the view of adjoining exhibitors nor be operated in any manner objectionable to other exhibitors. All lighting within the exhibit must be arranged and operated so as not to be distracting to adjacent exhibitors. Video, sound and other technical equipment must be operated in a manner that is acceptable to the Organizer. The Organizer’s final decision on whether any such item is acceptable shall be final.
(iii) The Exhibitor acknowledges that it has responsibility for the furniture, fixtures and fittings hired through the Organizer or its contractors and will pay for any damage or loss thereto.

(v) The following are excluded from the exhibition without prior approval of the Organizer: lasers, explosives, detonating or fulminating compounds, and all dangerous or harmful substances including primings and fireworks and all such objects can only be exhibited in the form of imitations and on condition that they contain no inflammable matter.
The Organizer is not responsible to assist the Exhibitor in obtaining passport and visa, for entrance into the country where the exhibition is to be held. The fact that the Exhibitor is unsuccessful in obtaining these documents from the necessary government authorities will not constitute a basis for cancelation of this contract and it is clearly understood that no refunds whatsoever will be made. Nor is the price of booking a stand supposed to imply any overnight accommodation at any local hotel – Exhibitors are responsible for arranging their own accommodation. The Exhibitor, however, may, subject to the Organizer’s approval, substitute another party or company who meets the entry and government formalities necessary for entry into the country where the exhibition is to be held. Such substitution shall be the sole responsibility of the Exhibitor. The Exhibitor acknowledges that the Organizer shall not be held responsible for the failure of all or any other contracted exhibitors to attend the Exhibition or the failure of any number of attendees to attend the Exhibition for any reason. Whilst the Organizers shall act in good faith, the name of any Exhibitor which may appear on any Show Program or stand number or any statement made by or on behalf of the Organizer that any exhibitor is booked to attend the exhibition provisionally or otherwise shall not constitute any warranty, representation or undertaking by the Organizer that any such exhibitor will attend the exhibition or attend any particular location.
The Organizer and its respective officers, agents and employees are not responsible for any loss, damage or delay incurred in freight shipments (transport, handling and clearing) into and out of the country for sponsorship opportunities. Exhibitors must insure against relevant loss.
EXCLUSION OF PERSONNEL
The Organizer reserves the right in its absolute discretion to exclude any person whose presence is or is likely to be undesirable and the Organizer may exercise such rights notwithstanding that any person is the officer, agent, employee or contractor of the Exhibitor or otherwise in any way connected or associated with the Exhibitor.
Exhibitors agreeing to book a group of booths – where the brands involved are in some way commercially connected – are responsible for ensuring that all Exhibitors within their group are fully aware of and agree to abide by this contract and by the Rules and Regulations.
The information on the Booking Form including any individual’s name will be kept on computer and used for the purposes as registered under the Data Protection Acts. The Organizer reserves the rights to vary these terms and conditions on reasonable notice to Exhibitors in advance of the Event.
