TRADE EXHIBITION BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS

STAND ALLOCATION
We will do our best to accommodate your requirements, but there is always competition for sites, as some are perceived to be better than others. You can help us to allocate your preferred site(s) by giving three options, which should be positioned in different areas of the exhibition site. Also to assist us in maximising your marketing opportunities, please advise us of competitor companies on your booking application. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to avoid placement close to competitors but we will try to take this into consideration when allocating stands.

Stand sites will be provisionally allocated on a “first payment received” basis but the final allocations will take into account additional criteria including sponsorship of the 2016 Conference. Note the organiser reserves the right, where circumstances dictate, to vary the stand allocation.

The Trade Exhibition Site Plan with allocated stands will be viewable on the EEA website by the end of March.

PAYMENT
A 50% deposit payment must be paid within 7 days of the booking application to secure a trade exhibition stand. The deposit can be paid using the online credit card payment facility or by direct credit or cheque using the details on the invoice.

All exhibition and exhibitor registration fees paid by direct credit must be paid to the conference bank account on the invoice.

All fees must be paid by 21 April 2017. Exhibitors who have not made payment in full by this time will not be permitted to set up their stand.

CANCELLATIONS
Refunds will be made for cancellations received in writing within seven (7) days of our confirming your stand allocation. A cancellation notice received prior to 15 April 2017 will incur a loss of deposit, however, no refunds will be made for cancellations received after this date.
