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

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.

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

have been made to the Exhibitor and require him forthwith to vacate the stand space
