1.2. The contractual relationships between the exhibitor and the organizer are governed by these General Terms and Conditions and the other provisions that are sent to the exhibitor by e-mail and/or post and/or fax. The terms and conditions of the respective exhibition location must be observed and complied with.
2.1. Registration must be made on the special registration form for each exhibition, which must be filled out and signed with a legally binding signature and sent to the organizer or sent online. The offer signed by the exhibitor/sponsor is also valid in any case.
2.2. The sending of the registration form does not justify a right to admission. The return of the completed and signed registration/offer to the organizer is a contractual offer by the exhibitor/sponsor, which requires acceptance by the organizer.
2.3. By registering, the exhibitor/sponsor accepts all of the terms and conditions specified in section 1.2. Unilateral reservations or conditions in connection with the registration will not be taken into account. The exhibitor/sponsor must ensure that the people employed by him at the trade fair/exhibition and his vicarious agents also comply with the conditions and guidelines.
2.4. For the purpose of processing the registration, the information is stored, evaluated and, if necessary, passed on to third parties for the purpose of executing the contract. The exhibitor/sponsor consents to this by registering.
3. ADMISSION AND PLACE ALLOCATION
3.1. All domestic and foreign manufacturers, dealers, service companies and institutions or clubs and associations as well as those companies that are authorized by a manufacturing plant to exhibit its products and companies whose articles are factually and thematically related to the trade fair/exhibition can be admitted belong. Participation in the form of joint stands is permitted, but all companies involved must be notified to the organizer in writing before the official deadline for printing material and must be approved by the latter.
3.2. The organizer can demand that objects which prove to be a nuisance, dangerous or inappropriate are removed from the premises. If this request is not complied with, the organizer will remove the objects at the expense of the exhibitor. The exhibitor assures that the exhibits he has registered are subject to his unrestricted power of disposal and that he has any necessary official permits or permits for operation. The exhibitor/sponsor is not entitled to a refund or adjustment of the stand rental in the event of violations.
3.3. The organizer decides on the admission of the exhibitors and the registered objects, if necessary in cooperation with the responsible committees/offices. For objectively justifiable reasons, in particular if the space available is insufficient, the organizer can exclude individual exhibitors or suppliers from participation and, if it is necessary to achieve the purpose of the event, limit the event to certain groups of exhibitors or suppliers. He is also entitled to restrict the registered exhibits and to change the registered area. Admission is only valid for the registered exhibits, the exhibitors specified in the confirmation of admission and the space specified therein. Items other than those registered and approved may not be exhibited. Furthermore, other products may not be advertised in any other form, e.g. in the form of advertising brochures or sales pitches. Exhibitors who have not met their financial obligations to the organizer or who have violated the conditions of participation or legal provisions can be excluded from participation
3.4. The exhibitor will receive a written confirmation of receipt. With this confirmation of receipt, the contract between the organizer and the exhibitor is concluded. The organizer is entitled to revoke the admission if it was granted on the basis of false prerequisites or information or if the admission requirements are no longer met later.
3.5. The organizer will allocate space, taking into account the topic and structure of the respective event and the available space. Space requests expressed in the registration will be taken into account as far as possible. The organizer reserves the right to change the size, shape and location of the allocated space. The organizer will notify the exhibitor immediately of the need for such a measure, and if possible allocate an equivalent stand to the exhibitor. If the participation amount changes, a refund or recalculation will be made. Claims for damages are excluded on both sides. The exhibitor must accept that at the beginning of the exhibition the location of the other spaces has changed compared to the time of admission. He cannot derive any claims from this. An exchange of the allocated space with another exhibitor, as well as a partial or complete transfer of the space to third parties, is not permitted without the consent of the organizer. If the area is not available for reasons for which the organizer is not responsible, there is no legal claim for damages.
4. PARTICIPATION PRICE
4.1. The participation fees are calculated from the net price per m2 shown in the registration form, multiplied by the square footage of the floor area, if necessary plus the size and design-dependent rental price for the stand. The minimum size of a stand is also listed, each additional square meter of the floor area or part thereof becomes full, the area calculated in a right-angled supplement without taking the stand shape into account.
4.2. The participation fees and all other fees are net prices. Value added tax is calculated according to the legal provisions of the country in which the exhibition takes place on the date of the event.
4.3. Repeat orders can be placed up to 21 days before the start of the exhibition without a surcharge. Orders placed 14 days or more before the start of set-up will be charged with a 20% surcharge on all services.
4.4. Services incurred during the trade fair or for dismantling will be invoiced afterwards. If the actual effort is higher than pre-ordered, a recalculation will take place with a surcharge of 25%.
5. PAYMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS, LESSOR’S LIABILITIES
5.1. The participation invoice is at the same time the admission and stand confirmation. After signing the contract, 50% of the stand rent plus ancillary costs are due within 15 days. A further 50% of the stand rent is then due by February 15, 2020. The full and prior payment of the invoice amounts is a mandatory prerequisite for moving into the exhibition space and for the issue of exhibitor passes. The exhibitor will receive the invoice for any additional ancillary costs (e.g. technical service, accessories/furnishings) immediately when the order is placed, or after the event if necessary. They are to be paid by him immediately after receipt of the invoice or offset against the amount paid.
5.2. All invoice amounts are to be transferred without any deductions, stating the invoice and customer number, in full at the time of the payment target and in € to the account specified in the invoice.
5.3. For all obligations that have not been fulfilled, the organizer can retain the stand equipment brought in by the exhibitors on the basis of the right of lien. § 560 sentence 2 BGB does not apply unless there is already sufficient security. If payment is not made within the set period, the organizer can sell the retained items privately after written notification. The organizer is only liable for damage and/or loss of the pledged goods in the event of intent or gross negligence.
5.4. If several exhibitors/co-exhibitors rent a stand together, each of them is jointly and severally liable. You must name a joint authorized representative in the registration (contact person Expo).

6.1. Cancellation of the registration is possible until admission.
6.2. After approval, the exhibitor can no longer withdraw or reduce the stand area. The entire participation fee and the services actually provided must be paid. The exchange of unoccupied areas by the organizer in order to maintain the overall visual appearance does not release the exhibitor from his payment obligation. If the exhibitor refrains from occupying the stand space allocated to him or fails to meet the payment deadlines and the organizer can rent this space elsewhere (no occupancy through exchange), then the exhibitor must pay 29% of the participation fee, at least €1,000 plus VAT. to pay the statutory value added tax as lost profit and reimbursement of the costs for the administrative expenses.
6.3. If an exhibitor does not take part, the full amount of the registration fee is due.
6.4. Stands that are not visibly occupied at least 3 hours before the start of the exhibition or at an individually agreed time can be reassigned, or chairs or prepared, with consideration for the overall picture. Nevertheless, the exhibitor owes the full participation fee as compensation for the damage incurred by the organizer. If there is no interested party due to the lack of time, the stand area will also be designed at the expense of the exhibitor.
6.5. If the exhibitor is unable to take part due to circumstances for which neither he nor the organizer are responsible (force majeure), the participation fee will be reduced by half.
7. STAND DESIGN
7.1. The exhibitor is entitled to set up his own stands after consultation. The design of the stand is left to the discretion of each exhibitor if all contractual conditions are observed (see Section 1.2.). The exhibition stand must be adapted to the overall plan of the exhibition.

7.3. Exact times, as well as the exact organization of assembly and dismantling, as well as delivery and collection, will be announced to the exhibitor in good time by the organizer. These are binding. In addition, the exhibitor is responsible for ensuring that the permits required for his activities are in place and that the applicable commercial, competition, health, fire and police regulations are observed.

14. EXHIBITOR PASSES
The number of free exhibitor passes depends on the size of the stand and can be found in the exhibitor service folder. The inclusion of co-exhibitors does not increase the number of exhibitor passes. Additional exhibitor passes are subject to a fee. The exhibitor passes are intended exclusively for the exhibitors, their stand personnel and stand representatives. They must be carried with you at all times, shown to the admission control upon request and are non-transferrable.

Any complaints regarding defects in the stand or the exhibition space must be reported to the organizer in writing immediately after occupation, but no later than on the last day of set-up, so that the organizer can rectify any defects for which he is responsible. Later complaints cannot be considered and do not lead to any claims against the organizer. Defects that occur later will be charged to the exhibitor, as it can be assumed that they are the fault of the exhibitor, his staff or representatives.

The Technical Guidelines apply to events, the playing of music or videos in the stand. The exhibitor must observe the relevant provisions of the Technical Guidelines and the Conditions of Participation.

During the event, the exhibitor submits to the organizer’s domiciliary rights on the entire site. The instructions of the organizer or his representatives must be followed. Violations of these Conditions of Participation or of the orders made within the framework of the house rules entitle the organizer to immediately close the stand at the expense of the exhibitor without compensation if the violations are not stopped after request. The instructions of the responsible persons (e.g. fire safety guard, building services, paramedics, police, etc.) must be followed. The organizer is entitled to have photographs, drawings and film recordings made of what is happening in the exhibition, the exhibition structures and stands and the items on display and to use them for advertising and press releases, without the exhibitor being able to raise any objections for any reason. This also applies to recordings made directly by the press with the consent of the organizer.
17. NO SMOKING
The general smoking ban must be observed in the exhibition rooms. Smoking is only permitted in the designated and marked areas. The exhibitor is also liable for compliance with the smoking ban on the part of visitors to their stand area. Should visitors act contrary to this, the staff of the organizer must be reported immediately. The exhibitor is liable for all damage incurred by the organizer as a result of non-compliance with the smoking ban.
18. FINAL PROVISIONS
Subsidiary agreements, changes and additions must be made in writing. This also applies to the written form requirement itself. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies. Insofar as a place of jurisdiction agreement is permissible, the place of jurisdiction is Daun.
Insofar as individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions are or become invalid, the legal validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The same applies to any contractual gaps. In these cases, the legally ineffective provision or the gap in the contract must be replaced by a legally valid provision that comes as close as possible to the economic purpose pursued by the parties with the ineffective or overlooked provision.
