The Exhibitor is responsible for all claims from personal injury or damage to property arising in connection with the erection and dismantling of the exhibitor's stand and anything permitted, omitted or done thereon or there from during the period of the exhibition or the construction and dismantling periods caused directly or indirectly by the exhibitor or any contractor, subcontractor, servant, agent, licensee, or invitee of his or the act, omission or neglect of any such person or by any exhibit, machinery, or other articles or thing of the exhibitor or in the possession of or use of the exhibitor or any servant or agent of his. The exhibitor will indemnify the Organisers in respect of each and every such claim and all actions, proceedings, costs, claims and demands in respect thereof. The exhibitor must take out adequate insurance in respect of all such claims.
Cancellation of Exhibition
If the exhibition is cancelled or abandoned by reason of war, fire, national emergency, terrorism, labour dispute, strike, lock-out, civil disturbance, inevitable accident, the non-availability of the exhibition premises, or any other cause not within the control of the Organisers, whether ejusdem generis or not, the Organisers may at their entire discretion repay the rental paid by the exhibitor or part thereof, but shall be under no obligation to repay the whole or part of such rental, and shall be under no liability to the exhibitor in respect of any actions, claims, losses (including consequential losses) costs, expenses whatsoever which may be brought against or suffered or incurred by the exhibitor, as the result of the happening of any such events.
Failure to Vacate
If the exhibitor, or their servants, agents or subcontractors should fail to remove all their property or otherwise fail to vacate the exhibition premises by the time required to honour contractual requirements due to any cause whatsoever, the Organiser will hold the exhibitor fully responsible for any penalties imposed by the venue owner, or any other losses and costs incurred by the Organiser as a result of the exhibitor failing to vacate the premises by the agreed time.
Insurance of Exhibits
The Organisers do not accept responsibility for any loss or damage from any cause whatsoever, in respect of property brought to the exhibition premises by exhibitors or stand holders or their servants, agents, subcontractors or any other persons, and the exhibitor or stand holder is required to indemnify the Organisers in respect of any such loss or damage to the exhibits or any other property brought to the premises whether it is their property or not.
To protect your interest, it is a requirement for all Exhibitors to insure against CANCELLATION/ABANDONMENT of the event including EMPLOYEES/PUBLIC LIABILITY insurance.
Exhibitors should ensure that they have arranged their own insurance protection.
REMOVAL OF GOODS/SAMPLES
Please note that merchandise and samples may NOT be taken out of the premises during the period of the Show. Our security staff are instructed to enforce this ruling strictly.
Where exhibitors find it necessary to give buyers samples, they must also give buyers an authorisation signed by a responsible representative of their firm. The Fair's staff will not allow the samples to be removed from Show premises without such signed authorisation.
Exhibitors are particularly warned against leaving valuable articles on their stands during the build-up and break-down periods, as security patrols are not operating until the show opens. Exhibitors and stand builders alike may be asked to open their bags/cases etc. on leaving the Halls at any time.
Exhibitors who have small valuables, which they wish to leave on the stand, should provide themselves with lock-up steel cabinets or other safe storage. It is recommended, however, that all valuables, including money, are removed from the stand whenever unattended.
Crusade Event Services Ltd will patrol the Halls during the hours when the Exhibition is closed. Any exhibitor wishing extra security should contact them in advance on 01423 701005.
