EXHIBIT SPACE EQUIPMENT AND SERVICE INFORMATION: Exhibitor agrees to be bound by NPACE rules and regulations and to abide by all applicable rules as set forth in the contracts of labor unions whose jurisdictions apply to this exhibition in this facility. All exhibits must maintain a professional appearance at all times. NPACE reserves the right to restrict individuals, exhibits or printed matter that, because of noise, method of operation, materials or any other reason, are considered objectionable by NPACE in its sole discretion, and also to prohibit or remove any exhibit that NPACE may consider, in its sole discretion, as detracting from the general character of the conference as a whole or that consists of products or services inconsistent with the purpose of the exhibition. Displays and demonstrations, as well as distribution of literature or other items, must be limited to the confines of Exhibitor’s own booth. Any demonstration or activity that results in excessive obstruction of aisles or prevents ready access to nearby exhibitors’ booths shall be suspended for any periods of time as may be specified by NPACE. NPACE retains the exclusive right to revise the exhibition hall floor plan and/or move assigned exhibits as it deems necessary, in its sole discretion.
CANCELLATION & REDUCTION: Exhibit fees are nonrefundable. The Exhibitor shall be responsible for payment of the total exhibitor fee whether the conference is cancelled, delayed, relocated, in whole or in parts, as a result of riot, strike, civil disorder, act of war, act of terrorism, Government regulation, or any other cause of any kind whatsoever not entirely within NPACE’s control, as determined by NPACE in its sole discretion (including, without limitation, a cancellation by Exhibitor). If a conference is cancelled due to riot, strike, civil disorder, act of war, act of terrorism, Government regulation, or any other cause of any kind whatsoever not entirely within NPACE’s control, Exhibitor may transfer payment to another NPACE conference within 1 year. Furthermore, should NPACE terminate this contract or cancel the Conference pursuant to the terms of this paragraph, Exhibitor hereby waives claims for damages arising therefrom.
TAXES AND LICENSES: Exhibitor shall be responsible for obtaining any licenses, permits or approvals required pursuant to any local, state or federal law applicable to Exhibitor’s activities at the Conference. Exhibitor shall be responsible for obtaining any tax identification numbers and paying all taxes, license fees or other charges that shall become due to any governmental authority in connection with Exhibitor’s activity at the Conference.
LIABILITY: Neither NPACE, the facility or the decorator, nor any of their respective employees, agents or representatives, shall be responsible for any injury, loss or damage that may occur to the Exhibitor, the Exhibitor’s employees, property, or to any person visiting the sponsor’s and/or exhibitor’s contracted space for any cause whatsoever. Under no circumstance shall NPACE be liable for lost profits or any other incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages. Exhibitor shall obtain, at its own expense, adequate insurance against any such injury, loss or damage. NPACE shall not be liable for failure to perform its obligations under this contract as a result of strikes, terrorism, or riots. Anyone visiting, viewing or otherwise participating in the Exhibitor’s exhibit is deemed to be the invitee or licensee of the Exhibitor, rather than the invitee or licensee of NPACE.

Proof of such insurances shall be provided to NPACE or its agent or representative upon request.
CARE OF BUILDING AND EQUIPMENT: Exhibitor, its agents and representatives must not injure or deface the walls or floors of the building, the exhibit spaces, or the equipment of the exhibit spaces. If Exhibitor or any of its agents or representatives causes any such damage, the Exhibitor is liable to the owner of the property so damaged and shall indemnify NPACE against any claims that may be brought against NPACE as a result thereof pursuant to the provisions of this Contract.
