Entire Agreement. The Agreement specifically incorporating the official Exhibit Space Confirmation with reference to the digital invoice (available in the Exhibitor Service Center), the Exhibitor Terms and Conditions and Addendums referenced herein, IPMI’s Privacy Policy, Website Terms of Use Policy and the Website Cookie Policy, embodies the entire agreement and understanding of the parties hereto in respect of the subject matter contained herein. Exhibitor agrees to comply with all provisions incorporated in these Terms & Conditions. Please contact exhibits@parking-mobility.org with any questions regarding this agreement.

 

The term “Event” refers to the 2020 International Parking & Mobility Institute Conference & Expo to be held May 31- June 3, 2020 at the Henry B. González Convention Center, San Antonio, Texas. The Event is owned, produced, and managed by the International Parking & Mobility Institute (“IPMI”). The term “Exhibitor” refers to the organization and/or person that applied for and has been granted exhibit space rental and such applicant’s officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents, and representatives. If any Exhibitor changes management or is purchased by another company/organization, this Agreement becomes binding on such company/organization. These rules and regulations form part of the Exhibitor Agreement made between the International Parking & Mobility Institute and the Exhibitor.

Force Majeure. The performance of this contract by either party, in part or in full, is subject to acts of God, war, government regulations, disaster, acts of terrorism, strikes, civil disorders, and delay in providing service preventing at least 25% of contracted participants from access or any other emergency beyond the control of either party making it inadvisable or impossible to provide services. The International Parking & Mobility Institute, eShow, GES, or Henry B. González Convention Center, their partners or subsidiaries may not be held responsible for any inconvenience this may cause.

Acceptance. The receipt by IPMI of your electronic application will constitute a binding contract (the “Agreement”). IPMI reserves the right to determine the eligibility of any company or product for inclusion as an Exhibitor.

Arrangements of Exhibits. Locations and arrangement of exhibit booths are shown on the Official Exhibit Area Floor Plan. Exhibits are arranged in an open setting at the Henry B. González Convention Center. The arrangement is designed to ensure maximum visibility and high traffic access for each display. Food and Beverage Service Areas are located throughout the hall and will be used for food and beverage service, announcements, drawings, entertainment, etc. IPMI reserves the right to alter the Exhibit Area Floor Plan as it deems necessary, at any time. Such changes will not constitute a refund or partial refund of your space.

Standard booths will be constructed of aluminum tubes, supporting dividers and drapes. Where applicable, back will be eight feet high and sides will be four feet high. Upon request, island booths may include side draping around the perimeter. Certain booths may be restricted to four-foot back walls. All booths must be carpeted; carpeting and furniture are not included in the exhibit rental fee (See also “Unions and Official Contractors”).

IPMI shall have the right to prohibit and/or remove any exhibit, in whole or in part, which in IPMI’s sole judgment is not suitable to or in keeping with the character or purpose of the exhibition. IPMI Show Management will notify the Exhibitor in writing and detail what modifications, if any, are necessary prior to the prohibition or removal of the exhibit. If an Exhibitor is asked to remove an exhibit, or part thereof, and fails to do so promptly, IPMI will remove the exhibit or part thereof, and the Exhibitor agrees to pay the reasonable costs of such removal. IPMI will not be liable for any damage to any party for the removal, whether in whole or in part, or prohibition of the exhibit that IPMI deems to be not suitable or in keeping with the character or purpose of the exhibition.

Your exhibit space does not include and therefore would need to be arranged for separately using one of the Official Contractors (a list is provided in your Exhibitor Kit) or your own contractor, with prior written consent from Show Management : Carpet/padding for your booth, electrical, phone, internet or plumbing services, chairs, signage, furniture, or any booth fixtures, assembly, dismantle or rigging services, lead retrieval unit, cleaning of your booth during non-show hours.

Height and Size. IPMI accepts the International Association of Exhibitions and Events "Guidelines for Display Rules and Regulations" as booth configuration criteria for its show. Please note a copy of these rules will be included in your exhibitor kit.

· Hanging sign height limit is 16’ to the bottom of the sign

· For Cubic Content the height limit is 16’

· Double Decker booths must be approved by GES and Henry B. González Convention Center to be sure it meets all fire and building codes (see form included in the “Rules and Regulations” section)


In any event, no display, advertising sign or material, etc., may block a reasonable view of any other exhibit, nor extend beyond the perimeter of assigned space. Specifically, peninsula booths (10’x20’ end) abutting linear booths: when a peninsula backs up to two linear booths, the back wall is restricted to four feet high within 5' of each aisle. The remaining back wall height restriction is 10' feet high. The backside of the wall must be finished and not contain signage or logos. This is to ensure that the sight line into an exhibitor's booth is not obstructed.

In all questions of booth design or layout, IPMI reserves the final approval authority. Should a question arise regarding this or other guidelines, the matter should be submitted to IPMI well before set-up for a final determination. (See also “Space Selection Liability,” “Exhibitor Operation/Conduct/Right of Entry and Inspection,” and “Facility Rules”).

Colors/Carpeting. Draping color will be gold/black. Aisle carpeting will be grey. Food/Beverage area carpeting will be black. Theme/Special IPMI area carpeting will be grey/black. All exhibit booths must be carpeted at the expense of the Exhibitor. If an exhibitor has not ordered carpet prior to show opening, carpet will be placed in your booth and added to your invoice and you will be responsible for paying.

Exhibit Agreement Specifications. Each exhibiting company shall be eligible to receive three (3) booth personnel registrations per 100 sq. feet, 8’ high pipe and drape back wall and 4’ high pipe and drape side wall (unless island booth), 7’x44” identification sign, more than 10 hours dedicated exclusively to the Expo, carpeted aisles and wastebasket, and 24-hour security from installation to dismantle, 75-word company listing in the Association pre-conference issue of the Parking & Mobility magazine, Event website and mobile app. Additionally, exhibitors will receive access to both a pre and post show attendee list (does not include full mailing or email addresses) (See also “Privacy Policy”). Booth personnel have unlimited access to education, general sessions and the Opening Welcome event– allowing exhibitors to network with attendees in a variety of settings.

Exhibit Space Assignments. Preferred exhibitors in good standing will be able to select space based on their priority points status beginning December 2019. After this date, all space is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis at prevailing rates. IPMI shall act in good faith to assign space in the location selected by the Exhibitor; however, does not guarantee separation of competing exhibitors or guarantee neighboring space(s) indicated available will be completely occupied at time of the Event.

Priority Point Assignments/Calculations. Exhibitors receive priority points based on three categories: Size of space, history of exhibiting with IPMI, formerly IPI, and sponsorship/upgrades/advertising related to conference activities as well as advertising dollars spent with the Parking & Mobility magazine. Points are calculated in August of each year including all eligible advertising for 12 months prior and previous show exhibit space and sponsorships calculated for your official priority points status. Exhibitors are notified of their current status one month prior to opening sales for preferred exhibitors for immediate future year event.

Priority Point Calculation Details. Exhibitors receive one (1) point per 100 sq. feet of space paid and occupied plus one (1) point per year for exhibiting. Beginning in 2019, exhibitors will be awarded additional points for reaching milestone markers associated with their cumulative years of exhibiting starting with 2019. These are defined at the following key milestones and are not issued every year that you continue to fall into one of these categories: Five (5) year anniversary = 5 additional bonus points awarded (meaning you have exhibited without interruption from 2019 – 2024), Eight (8) year anniversary = 8 additional bonus points awarded, Ten (10) year anniversary = 10 additional bonus points awarded, Fifteen (15) year anniversary = 15 additional points awarded, Twenty (20) year anniversary = 20 additional bonus points awarded. Prior to 2019, all exhibitors have received bonus points for cumulative history, however the program terms will change for 2019 as outlined above for historical cumulative exhibiting.

Sponsorships/upgrades/advertising related to the Event and advertising in the Parking & Mobility magazine is calculated at one quarter (1/4) point for every $500 spent. Certain special sponsorships/partnerships each year also have bonus points built into that sponsorship and will also be included in addition to the one quarter 1/4 point per $500 calculations.

Priority Point Terms/Forfeit

  1. Any exhibitor who does not reserve space at the IPMI for two consecutive years will forfeit all its accumulated points.

  2. Any contracted exhibitor who is a “no show” at a given show will be assessed a penalty of -10 points. No show is defined as contracting exhibit space without a formal cancellation and has not set up on opening day of Expo.

  3. Any contracted exhibitor, who is a “no show” with a balance due of space, will forfeit all accumulated points.

  4. Any contracted exhibitor who cancels space reservation after cut-off date for no refund, will be accessed a penalty of -5 points.

  5. Any contracted exhibitor who breaks down early or early departure during an event, will forfeit all accumulated points, regardless of reason.

  6. For mergers and acquisitions, points are not cumulative. Only the higher points of the two companies involved are applied. When a company splits or separates into two different (distinct) companies, existing points are assigned to only one of the companies. The second company will be given a flat 35 points as their own points status and will continue to accrue and gain points as a new company from that point forward. If IPMI is not informed of which company will take the existing points or the intro 35 points, IPMI will make the final decision and both companies agree to comply with decision.

  1. Companies in the same corporate family may have their own exhibit hall space if the companies are separate corporate entities. In this situation, each company enters into a separate Exhibitor Agreement, uses its own Priority Points and years of support, and has its own assignment date/time for space selection. The points and years of support of one company cannot be attributed to another (in other words, the points and years of support of one company cannot be “counted” twice). The company name on the booth and exhibit hall signage (and in the Official Program Guide and Event Mobile app) must be the same as the company whose name appears on the Exhibitor Contract.

Space Selection Liability. Exhibitor assumes all liability of space selection during reservation process including but not limited to: acknowledgement of columns or other obstructions near selected space, neighboring exhibitors, and layout of space in relation to surrounding spaces. Exhibit sales are open until the Event dates; therefore, the floorplan and occupants are continually being modified. It is the Exhibitor’s responsibility to monitor any changes that may adversely affect the Exhibitor pre/post show or onsite. There will be no refunds issued for space based on Exhibitors’ selected location, misprints/typos/omissions in printed/digital material, columns or other obstructions, traffic flow, and/or neighboring Exhibitors.

Booth Cost/Payment Policy. Exhibit fees are shown on the official exhibit space price list. There is a substantial discount for exhibitors who are members of IPMI. To be eligible for member pricing, you must be an active member at time of reservation and at time of Event to take advantage of the discount. Booths located in prime areas (entrance, exit, corners, near Food and Beverage service areas or special event areas in the hall) also reflect premium pricing. Bus Areas will only be assigned to vehicle/bus/transit type companies. Booth space will be assigned in accordance with the space reservation procedures.

A minimum of 50% of booth fees are due upon reservation by credit card. IPMI will process payment as stated on contract with no exception. The remaining balance is due within 30 days by check or credit card. In the event a remaining balance has not been satisfied within the 30-day window, IPMI retains the right to cancel your booth reservation without notification or refund.

Exhibitors are further responsible for ensuring that there are no outstanding amounts, unrelated to the Event, owed by them to IPMI. If all payments and outstanding amounts are not paid in full by February 2, 2020, IPMI retains the right to cancel the Exhibitor’s space without further notice and without obligation to refund previously paid amounts. Any re-sale of exhibit space shall not result in a refund to the Exhibitor.

All requests for cancellation or reduction of exhibit space must be made in writing and shall become effective upon receipt by IPMI. Due to the difficulty of determining and detailing the losses which would result from cancellation of exhibit space, the Exhibitor agrees to pay the following as liquidated damages (and not as penalty) if the Exhibitor cancels its exhibit space. In the event of cancellation by an exhibitor prior to February 10, 2020 IPMI will retain or shall be owed a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the total exhibit fee (not just the deposit) plus a $250 processing fee; if received after February 10, 2020, IPMI will retain or shall be owed a cancellation fee equal to 100% of the total exhibit fee. Cancellations after April 3, 2020 will affect an exhibitor’s priority points (See also “Priority Point Assignments/Calculations”). Reductions or downsizing in booth space will be treated as booth cancellations; refunds will be made accordingly. Furthermore, IPMI has full authority to relocate any Exhibitor after downsizing of space. The above cancellation fee terms shall apply regardless of the execution date of this Agreement and regardless of any re-sale of booth space cancelled by Exhibitor.

All booth assignments remain the exclusive prerogative of IPMI. In all reassignment cases, preference will be given to the exhibitor whose reservation and payment was received the earliest.

Occupation and Use of Space. Exhibitors will not be permitted for installation until full payment is received. There is no exception to this policy. Similarly, if an Exhibitor has an outstanding balance with the Official Show Contractor (GES), greater than 180 days, Exhibitor will not be permitted to move-in to their space and/or receive limited services from official show contractors including but not limited to: drayage, installation, cleaning, a/v, utility services, etc.

Exhibitor who fails to occupy its assigned space two hours prior to the published expo hours (set no later than 10:30 a.m. on Monday, June 1, 2020 and has not given IPMI the required written notice of cancellation will be considered “no show.” IPMI has the right to use “no show” exhibit space in such a manner as it may deem in the Event’s best interest. Failure to occupy exhibit space does not relieve the Exhibitor from their obligation to the terms of the Agreement and will impact an Exhibitors priority point status (See also “Priority Point Assignments/Calculations”). Any exhibiting company cancelling with a balance due is responsible for paying the remainder in full within 15 days of the cancellation.

Displays must remain fully intact and manned during all exhibit hours. No exhibits may be erected after official opening or dismantled before official closing times. Failure to adhere to this policy could result in one or more of the following: (a) penalty fines of up to 15% of your total booth costs, (b) the priority point status will revert to zero; (c) a 2 year ban from attending or exhibiting at the event, (d) preferred exhibitor status revoked for future events, (e) a surcharge of 15% added to your future exhibiting fees.

Subletting Space. No Exhibitor shall assign, sublet, or apportion the whole or any part of the space allotted, or exhibit therein, any other goods, apparatus, etc. than those manufactured or sold by the Exhibitor in the regular course of business. Sub-divisions, subsidiary organizations or partner product distributors that share space with a parent company will not be recognized as Exhibitors. This applies to booth personnel representatives’ badges as well as any listings in digital/print. There is no exception to this policy.

Care of Exhibit Space. Exhibitors shall care for and keep in good order all space occupied by them. Special cleaning and dusting of booth, display and equipment and material will be the Exhibitor’s responsibility and shall be performed at the exhibitor’s expense.

All goods of reasonable weight and bulk will be placed in exhibit space by IPMI or its appointed contractors. Exhibitor shall properly protect and maintain its exhibit space and appurtenant property. Exhibitors shall pay IPMI or its designee the cost of restoring Exhibitor’s space and appurtenances to the condition as of initial use by the Exhibitor; reasonable wear and tear expected.

Empty Crates/Box Storage. Exhibitors may not store crates and /or boxes in their booths. All exhibitors may request that the official contractor store empty crates and boxes for reuse prior to the opening of the Expo. IPMI Strategic Partners will have preferred return of empties at the end of the show.

Exhibitor Representation. Exhibitors earn three (3) complimentary exhibitor registrations per 100 square feet of space (each 10x10 space rented). Additional exhibitor registrations can be purchased (12/2/19 – 2/10/20: $349.00 pp. 2/11/20 – 4/30/20: $399.00 pp. 5/1/20 – 6/3/20: $475.00 pp).

Exhibitor Operation/Conduct/Right of Entry and Inspection. (a) Exhibitors may not schedule private functions or events which conflict with officially scheduled IPMI events. IPMI reserves the right to request and enforce cessation of any non-approved activity as it sees fit; (b) Exhibitors may not use strolling entertainment, nor distribute samples, magazine, or advertising materials in any area outside their exhibit booth including but not limited to, paraphernalia that is associated with or representing a competing or similar entity as the Association or their publications. Any type of product distributed for purposes of display in other Exhibitors booths will be immediately removed and destroyed; (c) The use of objectionable amplifying or lighting equipment may not exceed reasonable limits. IPMI reserves the right to have exhibitors remove any strobe lighting that negatively affects other exhibitors or attendees; (d) All activities must be carried on in Exhibitor’s contracted exhibit space. Furthermore, product demonstrations, presentations, and entertainment located within an exhibitor's booth space may not cause significant obstruction of aisles or encroach on neighboring exhibits. Adequate space/seating for presentations and demonstrations must be provided by the exhibitor within the exhibitor’s booth. IPMI reserves the right to have the exhibitor discontinue any activity or dismantle any display/demonstration feature that interferes with normal traffic flow. To conduct a demonstration lecture within an exhibit, the exhibit space must be a minimum of 400 square feet and must be in a 20' x 20' configuration. Exhibitors are required to allocate adequate exhibit space near these gathering zones to conveniently accommodate company personnel and visitors. Linear exhibits do not qualify for demonstration lectures. (e) Entertainment, marketing schemes or activity outside of your assigned space for the purpose of generating traffic to your booth must have the express written consent of the Show Management prior to exhibit hall hours. Upon approval, this activity must not interrupt or cause harm to any other exhibitor or their display.

If an Exhibitor or Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) engages in any conduct in violation of this Agreement and/or applicable laws, IPMI reserves the right to cancel the Exhibitor’s space without further notice and without further obligation to refund monies previously paid and to re-sell or remove completely from show floor. IPMI further reserves the right to reject Exhibitor’s application in future shows. Further, IPMI in its absolute discretion, shall have the right at any time to enter and inspect the area occupied by Exhibitor.

Further, Show Management will not be liable for damage or injury to persons or property during the term of this Contract, from any cause whatsoever, by reason of the use or occupancy of the exhibit space by Exhibitor, its employees, representatives or assigns. Exhibitor acknowledges that certain activities at the Show, especially during set-up and tear-down of the show, can be dangerous, and Exhibitor, on behalf of itself and each member of its exhibit staff, assumes such risk and waives any liability on the part of Show Management, Venue, and all Event Partners, and further assumes all liability for such risk.

Privacy Policy. Agreed upon by the European Parliament and Council in April 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that Events/Organizations, such as IPMI, protect EU citizens’ personal data and privacy.

Purchasing/Renting/Utilizing a list from a third party, is a direct violation of IPMI’s Privacy Policy and IPMI will not be liable for any fines imposed on the Exhibitor in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Further, IPMI considers purchasing or renting such lists as a violation of your participation in the event and may impose penalties/fines, including but not limited to loss of priority points associated with preferred exhibitors, cancellation of current or future participation, sponsorships included, resulting in no refund. This does not release the Exhibitor from the obligations of this contract.

By submitting your exhibit contract, the exhibitor gives consent to the IPMI professional photographer to use images of both your person(s) and/or your display. The prohibition against videotaping, video streaming/wireless transmitting or photographing the event extends to members of the press unless they are registered as press and possess a “press” badge/ribbon.

Television and/or video cameras (including webcams) are prohibited without prior written approval of IPMI show management. IPMI reserves the right to deny, alter or limit such access or distribution as the Event is the proprietary property of the IPMI.

A complete list of Official Service Contractors will be included in your Exhibitor Service Kit. Use of any service contractor not previously approved by IPMI or Henry B.
