Terms of payment

The application is non-cancellable by the exhibitor. Invoices for miscellaneous services or for supplies ordered separately are due at the time the services were rendered or the supplies provided, but not later than the date they were issued.
All due dates are to be fully complied with. The full and timely payment of the participation fee by the due date is the pre-requisite for taking possession of the exhibition space by the exhibitor. No factual deviation from this rule shall be deemed to be a waiver or postponement of payment. Any objections to the invoice shall only be considered if made within 14 days of the date of the invoice and in writing.
