TERMS AND CONDITIONS


1 Definitions

In these Terms & Conditions the term “Exhibitor” means any person, firm, club or

company who has completed an Event Booking/Application Form and thus entered into

a contract with the “Organiser” (Majestic Event Catering).


2 Allocation of Stand Space

Every effort shall be made to allocate to the Exhibitor the stand space that has been

requested. However, to facilitate an effective layout of the Show and if the Organiser

believes it to be in the best interest of the Event, the Organiser has the right to make a

stand space reallocation at any time.


3 Payment

All payments must be made in accordance with the terms and methods set out on the

Application to Trade Form. In the event the Exhibitor fails to meet any such payment

obligations (whether as to the amounts or date of payment) then the Organiser reserves

the right to cancel its contract with the Exhibitor and to resell or reallocate the stand

space allocated to the Exhibitor and the provisions of Paragraph 4 below relating to

cancellation charges shall apply.

the avoidance of doubt the Organiser shall not be obliged to accept the Exhibitor’s

notice of cancellation reduction. The Organiser shall have the absolute discretion (but

without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Organiser and without
